Data Logging Thermometers – Automatically Record Temperature Readings Consistently
GENEVA, OH, November 11, 2019
Many food, beverage and pharmaceutical processes require the recording of temperatures at multiple transfer points between producers, transporters and warehouses. Manually checking these temperatures to verify that the product is within the target temperature range is a good facility practice. However, the process can be automated to use less manual labor and to improve the accuracy and consistency of the results at the same time. A universal data logging thermometer such as the TEGAM 931B data logger creates a paperless and simple logging system for data that safely and conveniently stores the time and temperature of each sample in a universally accessible repository.
It really is time to go paperless for both sanitary and simplicity reasons. It’s now easier and more accurate to collect the temperature samples that your operation requires using a data logging thermometer and have these readings automatically enter your quality reporting system. The TEGAM 931B has a few unique features that allow you to automate the process of data collection. All that is required is a TEGAM 931B and a typical smartphone.
The 931B is a low-power data logging thermometer that can be set to collect a temperature reading every minute. Over the course of an 8 hour day, this results in 480 temperature readings with the corresponding clock time included. A wide range of special temperature probes are available that are compatible with many thermowells and sampling ports in process systems. The 931B will automatically record and store the readings throughout the day. At the end of the shift, you may quickly connect your smart phone or computer to save the data to your record keeping system. You have just accomplished a complete daily record of your process without having to spend the time taking samples or readings. This advanced process increases time savings on-the-job as well as reduces the possibility of missed readings due to distractions, etc.
The 931B data logger is also designed for long battery life and will run for over 120 days on one set of batteries.
TEGAM offers a free demonstration website (tegamcloud.com) that will collect your data and let you access it on a computer, tablet or phone. If you already use a quality management software system, TEGAM can show you how to connect our thermometers. TEGAM thermometers will record the temperature and time of each sample so that you have confidence in your records and can easily retrieve them as necessary for reporting or quality control.
