They???ve got that covered???.
Rusthall, England — At Temperature Indicators Ltd (TI), they don???t see much seasonal variation in the amount of business they do; it just shifts from one set of products to another as the year progresses and the seasons change.
In the summer they???re busy helping a lot of people protect items from excessive temperatures, for example by providing labels that demonstrate that high temperatures have been reached, usually in transportation.
These shipping temperature labels are used when companies are using airfreight or seafreight to send temperature sensitive items like pharmaceutical products to locations where, in the Northern hemisphere, temperatures are reaching pretty high levels over Summer.
Naturally this continues through the year; as the Southern hemisphere shifts into summer, the same concerns about high temperature abuse arise, and they see a rise in the number of enquiries from customers on the other side of the Equator for labels that provide evidence of critical temperatures being exceeded.
As winter approaches for those in the North, they see a strong demand from our part of the world for indicator labels and tags that show when temperatures have gone too low. Again, they???ve got this covered.
The 3M Freeze Watch is a great indicator ??? they???re big fans of this particular 3M product and they always have these in stock during winter time.
If you need to show exposure to freezing conditions then this is the product to use. Just one suggestion, if you need to buy it (which you can do very easily from their website) then please try to order it before temperatures drop below?? 0 ??C. This indicator works well, reacting in a prompt and accurate manner.
Protecting it from this colour change in the delivery process can be a bit tricky. Load areas in delivery vehicles can be very cold and exposed to extreme temperatures, so they definitely recommend you order it way before you need it. They???ve learnt this from experience, and it???s important to pass this on to you!
No matter what time of year it is, lots of items are stored and transported in refrigerated conditions. Again, they???re well prepared for this, with the Chillchecker product, a range of labels that react to increasing temperature at lower levels.?? Each label reacts at one temperature only, and they are available in a range from -17 ??C to +20 ??C.
If you don???t see an indicator on their website that matches your needs, send them an email through their site.
