Protective housing for MPRF DataTrace data loggers
Mesa's new DataTrace Armor protective housing is a rugged, heat-resistant housing for all MPRF DataTrace data loggers. Each of these housings not only protects the electronics of the logger inside, but also enables easier placement of the logger probe in the product and better positioning of the logger within the process, e.g. in heat sterilization processes.
Under extreme environmental conditions, additional considerations must be taken into account to protect the housing of the data logger and ensure the transmission of data. DataTrace has developed the Armor protective housing (heat protection container) especially to protect your high-quality instrument from the extreme conditions in manufacturing processes, in which your MPRF temperature loggers are fitted precisely and which offers further advantages that make using the loggers even more practical.Introductory video
If the process you want to monitor exceeds temperatures of +140 °C (the upper temperature limit of the Micropack data loggers), the electronics and battery must be protected from excessive heat. Depending on the application, you can choose one of the 10 different DataTrace® insulated containers (heat protection containers). These containers are designed to protect the logger body from the high temperatures, but expose the sensor itself to the environment being monitored. All containers work excellently in dry environments, most even in liquids such as hot oil. The containers not only protect against overtemperature, but also in extremely cold environments (freeze monitoring).
Several different insulated containers are available, choose the right one for your application:
Temperature monitoring in closed containers
Determining temperature curves in closed containers is often essential in order to obtain meaningful results in manufacturing processes (e.g. pasteurization).
We offer a wide range of accessories for the secure attachment of DataTrace data loggers inside and outside cans, containers, bags, etc.
The new set with DataTrace MPIII data logger and thermal sleeve!
This logger set is ideal for monitoring temperatures in sealed containers, such as cans or bottles, where it is critical that the seals of the products are not broken during the test.
- Ideal for applications in retorts and cooking processes
- Can be used in vacuum processes
The scope of delivery includes the thermowell (a protective tube with lock nut), which can be permanently installed in a process, two sealing rings required for its installation and, of course, the matching data logger, which can be placed precisely in the thermowell. The thermowell can also be permanently welded directly into pipes, allowing the logger to be removed and refitted without interrupting the manufacturing process. You can purchase additional thermowells so that individual loggers can be used at different measuring points.
The MPIII data logger set is perfectly suited to cover all typical measuring points in SIP (Steam in Place) or CIP processes. Made from the same durable materials you've come to expect from other DataTrace models, this MPIII logger features a threaded probe base. This allows the logger to be easily screwed in and out of the thermowell without breaking any existing seal!
Magnetic holders for MRPF and MPIII data loggers
These holders consist of a retaining clip attached to a magnet, allowing the logger to be securely attached. The magnetic holders can be used in a variety of applications and are an ingenious solution to hold your DataTrace loggers in the correct position for the application.
Measuring signals from autoclaves with DataTrace® InTenna
The reception of radio signals from autoclaves may be impeded or interrupted by dense loading of the chamber or other circumstances. DataTrace® InTenna has been specially developed to pick up signals from MPRF radio data loggers in the autoclave and forward them to the evaluation station.
The DataTrace® repeaters enable longer ranges between the transmitter (Micropack MPRF wireless loggers, whether temperature, humidity or pressure wireless loggers) and receiver.
Monitoring and mapping of extreme low temperature appliances can be very difficult. It is almost impossible to monitor these extreme conditions with standard products. When using data loggers in these conditions, it is essential to ensure that you are using the right battery for the right job. For monitoring temperatures below -40 °C, you should therefore definitely use a certified "low temperature" battery. We now offer the new lithium-ion batteries with spiral winding technology. Recently approved by us, these low temperature batteries have an amazing track record at low temperatures and offer a tried and tested solution with our MPRF data loggers to deliver the best possible performance at temperatures below -40 °C.
Now you don't have to go without real-time data from your logger! The low temperature batteries also work excellently when real-time data is to be retrieved wirelessly! For more information about DataTrace products, please visit the DataTrace product overview
