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 [...]

How often do you need to calibrate?

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 [...]

Independent sensors ?

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 [...]

Freezing

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 [...]
