Temperature Measurement with IR on shiny surfaces. When measuring temperature with IR (infrared, non-contact) on shiny or polished surfaces, the risk for measurement errors increases. It can be plastic packaged foods, vacuum packed or maybe meat in plastic wrap. A TIP! A simple way to compensate for this, is to mask the shiny surface with tape [...]
New instructional CoolGuard videos We have produced some short instructional videos on CoolGuard Touch and app (in swedish). Simple instructions on how to login, how to acknowledge your work tasks, how to acknowledge deviations/alarms and other basic functions of CoolGuard. The idea is obviously to guide our users, in an educational and accessible way, to the most common CoolGuard [...]
What is calibration? To calibrate; is to find out the deviation between “true temperature” (ITS-90) and the “temperature measured/displayed”. Do you need to calibrate? Most temperature monitoring equipment are manufactured according to norms or standards that have very tight tolerances, this allows for temperature measurements with good results - even without calibration. Today many operations [...]
Temperature measurement is a large field that includes a variety of measurement situations with different materials, temperature ranges, mass, textures, accuracy and response time required, etc. Therefore, it is difficult to generally indicate when a measurement method works good or bad. For "continuous monitoring" it is common to mount a fixed sensor in the object to [...]
Finally our new Coolguard apps are available on both Play and AppStore.

We at ICU Scandinavia often talk about the importance of using independent (or parallel) sensors for monitoring and log, what we mean is that there are certain risks associated with us relying on the equipment's built-in sensors and its display. Perhaps we find the clearest and simplest example at home, in the kitchen where the [...]
To maintain the vitamin content, taste, consistency and quality of food as well as possible, items must be frozen as quickly as possible. For this purpose, there are rapid freezers designed solely to freeze food in this way in addition to conventional freezers equipped with a quick-freeze function that rapidly reduces the temperature. These functions [...]
When the refrigerator close function is working, the door will pretty much close by itself. However, you may sometimes find that you have to press on the door for it to engage and feel closed. Even then, it feels as though it is not “engaging” as it should. The suction that keeps the door properly [...]
