Why Durable, Accurate and Fast Temperature Measurement Tools Are Important in the Food Industry

With constantly changing consumer preferences and the rise of intermediaries like Uber Eats, it is more important than ever before that our food industry delivers top quality cuisine. This is impossible with the absence of good food preparation.

For a business to succeed in this industry, fresh and flavourful dishes aren’t a feature, they are a necessity. Everyone from high end restaurants to local franchises, should use the best measurement instrumentation available. With Testo, you ensure the following areas of your business are performing at their peak.

Food industry instrumentation for incoming goods

Every item that enters your premises should undergo rigorous checks in order to ensure its quality and safety. Whether that be your weekly delivery of fresh fish, or the daily top up of your fruit and vegetable stocks, food can spend a long time in transit from the wholesaler before it comes through your door.

The Testo 104-IR Infrared & Probe Thermometer is perfect for dealing with incoming goods. Operators can analyse incoming goods, perform impromptu quality checks and any other surface and core temperature measurements by utilising its hazard analysis and critical control points (HAACP) certified and IP65-rated integrated probe and infrared laser. Its high degree of accuracy, durability and speed means you get non-contact readings whenever you need them.

Food industry instrumentation for goods storage

When measuring food quality, it is best to approach the task as a long-term process as opposed to a spot check or review of incoming goods. You need instruments and systems that allow you to check temperature of goods at any time. Whether the food is in refrigeration or in the workrooms, the quality needs to be able to be checked from any location.

The  Testo Saveris 2-T1  is essential in achieving this. This is a Wi-Fi data logger with a clear display and integrated NTC probe that provides you with highly accurate temperature readings 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It is simple to install and its Wi-Fi integration allows you to check the temperature of a room from any tablet, smart phone or PC.

Food industry instrumentation for preparation

There is no margin for error when it comes to food preparation. This can be particularly challenging due to the numerous amounts of variables. Whatever temperature-related issue a food operator may encounter, Testo has instrumentation to address it. Save time and money when dealing with costly frying-appliances with the Testo 270 cooking oil tester.

Perform spot checks with the Testo 108-1 digital food thermometer. Have greater flexibility with the Testo 104 folding thermometer, which is capable of probing goods without leaving a trace, giving you core readings with the added ability to navigate tight or difficult-to-reach spaces.
