Data Logger Store, a division of Pacific Sensor Technologies offers data loggers from MadgeTech designed to ensure safety in food processing applications.

It is important for the health and wellbeing of consumers that the food they eat must be carefully inspected, properly prepared and safely stored by the companies that provide it.

MadgeTech data loggers ensure food regulation compliance by tracking temperatures in the food during cooking, processing, storing and shipping as well as changes in the climate of the facility that the food passes through during these various stages. Monitoring temperature and humidity parameters is critical to preventing food-borne illnesses. Therefore, temperature data loggers, humidity data loggers, wireless monitoring and data logging software are standard equipment at most food companies.

The Centre for Disease Control estimates that one in six people will get sick from consuming contaminated food or beverages. There are more than 250 different diseases that can be caused by food, most of them from infections when bacteria, viruses and parasites flourish during the preparation and storage phases.

Although food can become contaminated in many ways, certain foods are more susceptible to harbouring potential diseases including raw meats, raw poultry, raw eggs, raw shellfish, unpasteurised milk or fruit juice, and fresh fruits and vegetables washed in unsanitary water or grown in fresh manure.

MadgeTech’s battery-powered data loggers are used in a variety of ways to halt the potential birth and spread of pathogens. Temperature verification makes sure the food is maintained at a proper temperature from the factory floor to the store to prevent the occurrence of potential pathogens. 

Data Logger Store offers calibration for MadgeTech data loggers and other temperature instruments.
