Warner, NH, United States, 2015/01/19 - Temperature monitoring and control is of the utmost importance to the food industry, as food that is improperly cooked or refrigerated can cause serious health hazards and concerns - MadgeTech.com.
Even if food is kept safely refrigerated, variances in temperature can negatively impact the taste or quality of certain products. Maintaining a consistent temperature in cooking devices, such as ovens or smokers is extremely important to the quality of food being produced.
Data logger devices such as MadgeTech's RFOT Wireless Meat Temperature Data Logger help the food industry in ensuring that beef, pork and poultry is kept at safe, consistent temperatures during cooking, cooling or storage. The rugged RFOT probe can be inserted directly in the product and transmit the recorded temperature data wirelessly to a central PC for monitoring, as well as to the MadgeTech Cloud for instant access from any internet enabled device.
Food Safety & Quality Control
Food safety laws require food products to be kept at certain temperatures during all phases of processing to ensure safety. Most facilities are mandated to keep accurate records of the temperatures and provide reports or records to validate their compliance. Food temperature monitoring is necessary for ovens, freezers, refrigerators or display cases. In many cases it may also be necessary during the preparation or transporting products.
The MadgeTech Data Logger Software makes the task of record keeping easy by automatically storing all recorded data to the software's internal database file. Saved data can be easily accessed, displayed and exported in a number of report styles for proof of validation and regulation compliance.
Data logging plays an important role in ensuring that food is safe, edible and meets all of the required laws of food safety. Data loggers automate and simplify the task of keeping a continuous record of temperature data of items or facility environments over periods of time. This greatly reduces the burden on the facility while significantly increases the accuracy and reliability of the information. This provides the users confidence as well as monetary benefits.
MadgeTech's RFOT (madgetech.com) is a specialized meat temperature data logger that provides temperature and quality control monitoring. The wireless data transmission allows the user to access information from the device as it happens, without having to physically connect it to a computer. Recorded data is stored on the device to the internal memory for the added benefit of preventing data loss during a power outage or network interruption.
The RFOT is durable and easy to use. Made from TECAFORM® material and is highly resilient to temperature, moisture, and contact. The ergonomic built-in probe is easy to insert into any meat product being monitored and is built to last for thousands of cycles.
The RFOT is ideal for numerous processing applications in smokehouses, ovens, and other high-heat environments, as well as refrigerators and freezers for storage or transportation.
The RFOT Wireless Meat Temperature Data Logger was designed to help users comply with USDA Appendix A and B. Failing to adequately monitor temperatures could lead to loss of compliance with laws and regulations, resulting in penalties or poor food quality.
Data logging has revolutionized the efficiency of food processing and the required monitoring that must be in place for a successful facility. MadgeTech's RFOT Wireless Meat Data Logging System is a valuable tool for achieving high quality standards in meat processing facilities of all sizes.
