RAYTEK, represented in Australia by ECEFast , has released the FoodPro and FoodPro Plus thermometers.
Temperature measurements are critical for food safety. Both thermometers incorporate federally-regulated hazard analysis and critical control points (HACCP) standards for food temperature measurement, making HACCP compliance easy.
The FoodPro unit is suitable for applications where all that is needed is food temperature monitoring in food service environments. It is a noncontact thermometer with target illumination, safe/unsafe temperature zone indicators, digital display and IP54 sealing. A quick surface scan with the FoodPro thermometer can instantly detect potential problems before food is spoiled by unwanted parasites and bacteria.
The FoodPro Plus thermometer accurately measures both surface and internal temperatures with one instrument. The infrared thermometer combines the safety, accuracy and convenience of a noncontact measurement device with the precision of a contact probe.
The FoodPro and FoodPro Plus units instantly reveal HACCP danger zones, which range from 4°C to 60°C where time and temperature rules apply, by triggering a red (unsafe) light. Temperatures within HACCP safe zones are indicated by a green light.
Due to tighter inspection requirements, HACCP programs are gaining recognition worldwide, as part of an overall effort to reduce the risk of food-borne illnesses and are being mandated by local governments.
The FoodPro unit has an infrared temperature range of -30°C to 200°C and a digital display. It is IP54-rated and hand washable. It also has illuminated noncontact sighting.
The FoodPro Plus has a digital display of all measurements, including an infrared channel temperature range of -35°C to 275ºC and a probe channel temperature range of -40°C to 200ºC. The unit has a countdown timer to monitor cooking, cooling and HACCP exposure times. It has illuminated noncontact sighting and a field-replaceable temperature probe that folds for storage. It is IP54-rated and hand washable to reduce cross-contamination when used in the probe mode.
