Fischer hygrometer – his first friend and rescue!

Some time ago, we did get the following message from the US.
We feel this is a moving story which is worth publishing:

Dear Fischer Co.,
I would like to ask you for an unusual favor.
I’m a retired physician, in the mid 70′ has proposed to use Fischer hygrometer in our university clinic for newborn incubators. After this, all Hungarian clinics started using them everywhere, and not only for newborn incubators.
In 1980 my son was born prematurely and placed in an incubator. He was kept there for about 1 month. Of course, all this time he watched the Fisher hygrometer – his first friend and rescue! When he was freed from the incubator, I kept the hygrometer like the souvenir/memory and it became our family friend and relic.
Until these days it was the most important sentimental memory in our family… Unfortunately, when my grandchildren were introduced to the Fischer Hygrometer, the glass was broken. We tried to find this part for a very long time, unfortunately, without success… Of course, we could buy a new hygrometer, but this will not be the same.
Now we live in the USA, my son became a doctor also. One day he spoke with his colleges about our broken memory and they advised him to turn to your company for help.
As we described our “family Fischer Hygrometer” in the above story it is very dear to our heart and we would like to ask you for help to fix our broken memento – Fischer hygrometer.
We would like to buy a replacement hygrometer glass if possible to find.
Thank you very much for your time and effort in advance and we hope you can help us.
Dr. M. R.

In the meantime the Hygrometer is repaired and we received this nice picture of the family:

These days the Summer Catalog 2018 of MANUFACTUM has been published. To find: A detailed presentation of our manufactory of fine mechanical instruments.For almost 20 years we have been one of the suppliers of MANUFACTUM.

In connection with this manufacturer portrait also our outdoor weather station 801 was presented.

This means that seven measuring devices made by FISCHER can now be found in the MANUFACTUM range.

Municipal climate protection

We congratulate Claus Schrick on the nomination of the climate protection manager of the month by the National Climate Protection Initiative.

Mr. Schrick is climate protection manager of the state capital Saarbrücken and responsible for the joint project of the room climate stations in kindergardens and schools [blog post from 11.08.2016]. The environmental magazine “Umweltmagazin Saar” also reported under the heading “Lighthouses of municipal climate protection” [blog post from 20.01.2017].

Newspaper report about project in Saarbrücken

The magazin “Umweltmagazin Saar” reports about lokal environment protection in it’s issue 4/2016.

This time including (page 15): the project of the room climate stations for Kindergarden and elementary schools [blog post from 11.08.2016], at which the state capital Saarbrücken has equipped the main rooms with 500 FISCHER instruments on a special designed rigid foam board.

“The main goal is an early education and understanding for environmental matters and a awareness for the meaning of environment protection. The furnishing of the kindergardens and schools shall bring that also to the smalles kids and get them used to take care about their surroundings on a playful way. Because of the design of the board the children get to know about their room climate even before they can read numbers and letters.” explains Claus Schrick, climate protection manager of the state capital Saarbrücken. After half a year he draws a positive balance and hope that other cities will follow his idea and copy that project.

Meanwhile it wasn’t a coincidence that Schrick used measurement instruments from FISCHER for the project: “Because of the mechanical and nearly maintenance-free instruments the educators don’t have to change batteries regularely and prevent additional waste.” the Diplom-Ingenieur Schrick says.

FISCHER ecofort hair hygrometer in use: Conservation of West African desert crocodiles

For years the ecofort GmbH Nidau (CH) familiar on the synthetic hair hygrometer from FISCHER. Now this hygrometer is used for the conservation of West African desert crocodiles:

The ecofort GmbH supports the efforts of Michel Ansermet (research associate of Aquatis, the formerly Vivrarium de Lausanne) to preserve the West African desert crocodiles from extinction. In Europe there are only 3 such crocos, in Lausanne is the only couple. While there were 1946 in Africa more than one million of them, today only 1,500 to 3,000 of these animals are counted.

Nature has done with the help of Michel Ansermet a miracle.
