Monitoring the temperature of a process or a finished food product presents several challenges for manufacturers today. One must weigh getting accurate readings within the package with the displacement that occurs when placing a data logger within the product. What’s more, no one wants to sift through messy product to locate a data logger but this is what must be done so as not to compromise the seal integrity of the product and generate accurate reading during thermal processing. That is, until now!
Mesa is introducing the DataTrace MPIII Thermowell Data Logger which allows for the addition/removal of the logger without breaking the seal! This logger is ideal for monitoring temperatures in a sealed container such as a can or bottle or for an SIP or CIP system at the typical monitor points where the Thermowell can be welded directly into piping allowing the logger to be easily removed and replaced when desired without shutting down the process.
The Thermowell is comprised of a ‘well’ that can be permanently placed in a process, a matching logger that fits inside the Thermowell, and two installation o-rings.
