Finding a new job takes time, energy and planning. Beyond thinking about the type of work you want and your career goals, it is equally important to consider the type of company you want to work for. Before you apply for any opportunity, it's good practice to do a little research on the employer that is advertising the position. One thing to look for is whether the company has a people-first culture. For instance, Ashcroft, a global leader in pressure and temperature measurement instrumentation, was recently recognized as a national 2024 Manufacturing Top Workplaces award winner. This honor is given to companies voted as an employer of choice by its employees. Ashcroft was the only Connecticut-based company to receive this national recognition. Last year, the company won a regional Top 2023 Top Workplace in Western Connecticut. Read this article to learn more about the Top Workplaces program, developed by Energage LLC, what makes Ashcroft an employer of choice and the qualities to look for in your next employer.

Calibration | temperature sensor | thermocouple | pharmaceutical and biotechnology | chemical industry | Chemical/Petrochemical | Oil & Gas | Power/Energy

This article was originally published on August 23, 2023, by Rick Zerafin and was updated on June 26, 2024, by Dave Dlugos. Consistently accurate temperature measurements are vital to several industrial processes in numerous industries from construction to energy to manufacturing. Although many instruments can measure the temperature of gas and liquid in these processes, thermocouples are among the most popular thanks to their simple design and versatility. Over time, however, the thermocouple’s performance may tail off for any number of reasons. Two of the most common are drift and elevated temperature. As a leading authority in temperature measurement instrumentation, we help customers understand the factors to consider when selecting instruments and the steps needed to keep systems running efficiently. If your process includes temperature measurement with a thermocouple, this article will explain why it is important to calibrate your instrument and how to do it. You will also get access to helpful resources that can help you gain deeper knowledge on the subject of temperature sensors.
