The refrigerator – a cool history.

Already 4,000 years ago, the population of Mesopotamia dug pits, where they kept ice and snow from the mountains, to store food. Snow and ice were long the only way for humans to cool or freeze their food and drink. If stored in the soil properly and in the right place it may last for [...]

Measuring temperature – that’s quite simple, right?

Yes, at first glance ... but measuring temperature correctly is a bit more tricky. I believe all of us have experienced that different thermometers do not show exactly the same value, two thermometers outside the kitchen window or two thermometers in the refrigerator. It can of course depend on the measurement accuracy or calibration of [...]

Temperature is …

Temperature is a numerical representation of hot or cold compared against baselines, typically the point at which water freezes and boils. Intuitively, people have known about temperature for a long time: fire is hot and snow is cold. Yet, a full appreciation of the complexities of temperature and its measurement has been relatively slow to [...]

Temperature Measurement with IR on shiny surfaces.

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 [...]

Temperature measurement with a Handset

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 [...]

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 [...]
