Probe Storage

It’s critical to have a storage system that protects your probes from damage, temperature extremes, and contamination. Invest in options specifically designed for the size and type of probes you need to store. They should:

  • Be protected from accidental collision with other equipment.
  • Hang straight down, with adequate air circulation during the drying cycle.
  • Have support for the control handle and system connector.
  • Have the storage area positioned so that there is no chance for impact or abrasive contact between the probe and storage option when removing or installing the probe.
