Correct storage temperatures play a vital role in the food industry.
Compliance with the required conditions for the processing and storage of food of essential importance to virtually all food processing industries, whether in meat processing, fish processing, butcher shops, dairy, on the farm or in the supermarket.
In particular, temperature plays a defining role in the storage of food, as perishable food should ultimately remain fresh as long as possible and remain harmless to your health. Microorganisms multiply more slowly at low temperatures, thus delaying the multiplication of pathogenic bacteria. Producers manufacturing, storing or transporting perishable foodstuffs are obliged to maintain a gap-free cold chain and to document the temperatures as part of self-regulation. This is also described in the HACCP and the Food Hygiene Regulation (LMHV).
What does the food industry need to monitor?
The cold chain, and thus the marketability of the food, must be maintained on the production floor, refrigeration room, refrigerator, refrigerator, freezer - in all areas where critical food is processed and stored.
In large companies goods with large values are stored; thus, having to discard food due to incorrect temperature conditions has painful financial consequences.
What to look out for?
The minimum requirement for monitoring temperatures in the food processing industry is the use of a Min/Max thermometer, which displays the respective minimum and maximum temperatures between two manual checks. However, such a Min/Max thermometer also bears its risks and inconveniences.
For one, the thermometer must be read consistently each day and the results recorded in a form, which must be maintained and archived. In addition, the staff in charge of the recording must be reliable and trustworthy.
The principle disadvantage of a Min/Max thermometer, however, is the inability to send out a reliable alarm in the case of threshold violation (preferably before any damage occurred)!
How do I check if the required temperature is maintained on my premises?
Nothing easier than that. The SenseAnywhere monitoring system allows you to keep on top of the temperatures in your business. The system is easy to install and extremely intuitive to use. Keep track of the continuously recorded data at a glance - on-site, at home or even while on the road. Configure temperature thresholds and get warned on the PC, by e-mail or SMS if these thresholds are violated - this is the only way to avoid damage before it occurs. On request, the system creates fully automatic reports for documentation and possible submission to inspectors.
And the best thing is... ...it doesn’t generate any extra work for you! Position the Sensor Modules where they need to monitor conditions, and after a simple and quick set-up phase, the monitoring system runs completely automatic and reliable - only drawing your attention when you need to step in.
