TEGAM’s New 900 Series Bluetooth® Hand-Held Data Logger Thermometers Allow Managers to Remotely Monitor Critical Data Logs
GENEVA, OH, November 1, 2016
HACCP and HARPC Data Collection Challenges Addressed by New Digital Thermometers
GENEVA, Ohio–(BUSINESS WIRE)–TEGAM, Inc., a leading supplier of digital hand held thermometers for 30 years, is introducing a new series of industrial, data logging thermocouple thermometers to assist food manufacturers in meeting the requirements of the FSMA.
“TEGAM constantly strives to provide current and potential customers with the most advanced and highest-accuracy hand held measurement equipment”
TEGAM’s new 900 Series data logging thermometers are transforming the manufacturing floor by allowing remote monitoring of critical data and simplifying the data collection process to meet the requirements of the FSMA. “The FDA is going to rely heavily on data collection with the implementation of the FSMA,” explained Greg Tolentino, Applications Engineer for TEGAM. “The advances offered in TEGAM’s 900 Series thermometers bring new levels of flexibility by allowing the user to analyze manufacturing processes on the fly and initiate immediate adjustments to prevent safety or quality problems.”
The smooth, sleek, sealed design resists collection of dirt, grease and grime while simplifying the typical wipe-down process. Food manufacturers know first-hand how integral facility and equipment cleanliness is in ensuring product quality. Under the newly-implemented FSMA (and existing GMP guidelines), clean equipment is a regulatory requirement. The 900 Series thermometers, featuring a sealed battery compartment, one-piece keypad overlay, and sleek contours, are less likely to accumulate grease, dirt, or residue, and are easier to clean and protect against harsh cleaning agents.
TEGAM’s 900 Series data logger thermometers eliminate the potential for recording and transcription errors of pen-and-paper methods. Designed with built-in wireless connectivity to free cloud data storage, this solution creates a data repository that is accessible well within the 24 hours that the FSMA requires. Although not specifically required by FSMA regulations, online databases such as TEGAM provides in the new 900 Series system are the ideal answer to recordkeeping and audit requirements.
They are available in a variety of configurations:
- 911A single and 912A dual input simple, durable and accurate thermocouple thermometers
- 931A single and 932A dual input data collection thermocouple thermometers with Bluetooth
In either regulatory environment, HACCP or HARPC, temperature measurement of the foods being processed is crucial to preventing the growth of foodborne pathogens. One of the best solutions is an easy-to-handle, ruggedly designed automated temperature measurement solution.
The top considerations TEGAM had for creating these new handheld thermometers were to improve product quality, increase the speed of operations, decrease manufacturing costs, improve maintenance and improve information for business analytics.
The prices for these extraordinary instruments are also quite competitive considering their rich set of features. Prices range from $250 for the single channel 911A up to $400 for the two channel data collection 932A.
“TEGAM constantly strives to provide current and potential customers with the most advanced and highest accuracy hand held measurement equipment,” said Adam Fleder, President of TEGAM, Inc. “By maintaining a leading technological position in the handheld temperature market, we can help improve the safety and quality of food while simplifying compliance to the FSMA for food manufacturers.”
