Food Industry Temperature Measurement from TEGAM

TEGAM supplies Test & Measurement instruments throughout the food manufacturing & production industries - from thermocouple thermometers and datalogging thermometers to intrinsically safe (explosion-proof) devices and thermocouple temperature calibrators..

The USDA estimates that foodborne illness costs more than $15.6 billion each year and that 1 in 6 Americans will suffer from consuming contaminated foods[1]. Fortunately, many illnesses can be prevented with the proper cooking, storage and monitoring of food and ingredients[2].

TEGAM’s expertise in portable temperature measurement has been focused on food safety applications for over 30 years. Our temperature measuring instruments are designed to withstand the challenging environments found in food processing facilities and to produce consistent results with a wide variety of operators. TEGAM digital temperature instruments are deployed on production lines for on-the-spot verification and are used to calibrate vital process control equipment.

Our digital temperature measuring/monitoring instruments include:

  • Bluetooth Data Collection: 931B Datalogging Thermometer. The clipboard can truly be eliminated while reducing operator workload and simultaneously increasing the accuracy of data collection.
  • Software Developer's Kit: SDK-93X provides examples and source code to connect TEGAM Bluetooth thermometers to standard Quality Management Systems or your internal proprietary infrastructure for increased efficiencies and accuracy.
  • Digital Temperature Calibration for Equipment Maintenance: 940A Thermocouple Calibrator easily verifies that heating and storage systems are accurately reading and operating within control limits. Verifies both sensors and process controllers.
