What is a cold chain data logger
Cold chain refers to the continuous chain of refrigeration during the shipping of products from the manufacturer, via wholesalers, to retailers and even to the consumer. Monitoring this chain plays a vital role in product quality assurance. One example is the food industry. Manage the entire cold chain of, say, cooking cream, from production to the refrigerated section in the supermarket.
There is an ever-increasing need to control the whole refrigerated process relating to foodstuffs, whose shelf life is often highly dependent on uninterrupted refrigeration. It is not only foodstuffs that depend on it. Temperature variations in the pharmaceutical industry can affect the quality or action of products. In some cases, incorrect temperatures can even have disastrous consequences for the product.
Transport and storage need to be carefully monitored with data logging.
Cold chain data logger applications
Throughout the cold chain, refrigeration must be up to scratch, whether during production, while storing your goods or during shipment. A cold chain data logger makes it possible for you to measure and log temperatures at different points along the chain.
This lets you keep a close eye on the cold chain measurement data and respond to any deviating readings.
Reliable, traceable measurement results allow optimum process management. Comparing measurement results with each other makes it possible to display any degradation of the process or installation. It gives you a deeper insight into your process and tells you when it is time to take action or replace any equipment that is wearing out. Consequently, you can avoid costly downtime and problems during production.
Which cold chain data logger do I need?
Pedak has a wide range of products for recording temperatures. You can use data loggers or even a monitoring system, permanent setups or handheld devices, infrared sensors or probes, the possibilities are endless!
Since readings can be taken at various points along the cold chain, we will examine which points are critical to the whole process. This will help us determine which values you need to monitor and which measuring equipment best suits the task at hand.
