WITH the increased security measures being adopted by all airports, recent changes have made it more difficult for food outlets to continue to adhere to their food safety plans and carry out HACCP tasks.
Standard sharp probe thermometers are being confiscated by authorities, as they pose a stabbing risk to the public and need to be tied to a bench or wall. This causes inconvenience for the user when they are measuring food temperatures.
Global Cold Chain Solutions has released the 11026 thermometer specifically for airports for measuring temperatures in food service locations.
The design of the probe and the round tip pose less of a stabbing risk than a standard pen or pencil.
Sydney airport authorities have accepted this probe thermometer for use within airports, without the need to secure the probe to a bench or wall.
The probe can be used for all HACCP requirements and measures from -40°C to 150°C, resolution 0.1°C and accuracy +/- 0.5°C.
One of the features of the probe a unique hold function, which removes the opportunity for human error.
Also included is a ‘snapshot’ temperature - this provides a stable reading, without any fluctuations.
