Guide to Cold Storage Temperature Monitoring

Food Safety (General Food Hygiene) Regulations introduced in England and Wales in 1995 mean that accurate and continuous temperature monitoring is essential for the safe storage of food and to demonstrate due diligence.

Why Do I Need a Temperature Monitoring Solution?

A typical freezer warehouse environment may contain foodstuffs stored in coolers, freezers or deep coolers at a variety of temperatures. Manual temperature monitoring can be time consuming and subject to human error. And if monitoring’s not continuous, fluctuations or temporary faults and failures in equipment may go completely undetected. Any such compromise on food quality can affect your business, your customers and ultimately put people’s health at risk.

How Do Temperature and Cryogenic Monitors Work?

Refrigeration and Cold Storage

Temperature and cryogenic monitors provide a reliable, scalable, remote, easy to set up and use system to manage, monitor and alert to changes in temperature. Temperature Monitors connect directly to your network. Probes placed where needed collect temperature data which is sent back to the unit. Using the monitoring software you set temperature parameters or log and graph data as necessary. In the event of machine failure or temperatures rising outside parameters you will be alerted via email/SMS so that immediate action can be taken.

Benefits of a Temperature Monitoring System

  • Continuously monitor refrigeration units, cold rooms, freezers using the one system
  • Monitor air handling units, compressors and engines for early warning
  • Monitor loading areas
  • Greater energy cost control
  • Graph and log data
  • Immediate alert to problems so that damage can be avoided
  • Give your customers access to data via website
