Monitoring product temperatures

In the area of food production and meal distribution, the correct heating up and temperature of the food play a crucial role in terms of controlling germ/bacteria generation and reproduction on the food dishes, as well as controlling the consumption temperature.

  • Measurement directly during the production process/or after food preparation
  • Ensuring the necessary temperature: regarding germs/bacteria, but also quality specifications “defined internally”; (e.g. when heating chocolate it must not be heated too much/too quickly)

Advantages of testo 108:

  • Ease of operation and use
  • Waterproof instrument and probe (IP67)
  • Conforms to HACCP and EN 13485
  • Can be used universally

Temperature checks in incoming goods

The temperature check measuring task in incoming goods is to ensure that the temperature of supplied goods complies with (statutory) regulations and that the goods can be “safely” accepted and used for further processing.

Both the temperature between the products and the core temperature of foods can be measured.

In most cases, data is entered on a form and documented for subsequent traceability. In addition to the measured value, the date, time and user are noted.

If the temperature of the supplied goods complies with statutory regulations, these can be accepted and processed.

Advantages of testo 108:

  • Ease of operation and use
  • Waterproof instrument and probe (IP67)
  • Conforms to HACCP and EN 13485
  • Can be used universally

Temperature check during storage

The temperature check measuring task for storage is to ensure that the temperature of goods complies with (statutory) regulations and that the goods can be “safely” accepted and used for consumption (maintaining the cooling chain).

For contact measurements, a measurement is normally taken from between the products (carton packaging, frozen foods), and a core temperature is measured. In cases of doubt, a core measurement is of interest. Our frozen food probe 0603 3292 is inserted into the frozen food for this purpose.

This refers to both storage in cold storage warehouses/refrigerated transport means and refrigeration for sales counters (e.g. in supermarkets).

Advantages of testo 108:

  • Ease of operation and use
  • Waterproof instrument and probe (IP67)
  • Conforms to HACCP and EN 13485
  • Can be used universally
