Temp Monitoring of Perishable Products

During Transportation, Storage & Processing

Egg Temperature
Omega’s Egg Temp & RH Data Logger

Online  —  A White Paper from Omega Engineering that provides some background to temperature and humidity logging in logistics and discusses equipment options.

After finishing this paper the reader should have an appreciation of the reasons for capturing temperature and humidity data and an understanding of the equipment available and how it can be used.

Individual sections address:

  • Background to temperature monitoring
  • The cold chain
  • Cost and liability issues
  • Recording temperature and humidity
  • Portable electronic temperature and humidity data loggers
  • EudraLex/FDA compliant temperature loggers
  • Loggers carried by OMEGA

The need for temperature control extends beyond products for human consumption. Some specialist paints or coating materials will be damaged by exposure to low temperatures. Other chemicals must be kept within strict temperature limits during transportation.
