What you should know about different types of temperature probe
Temperature Monitoring in Food Safety Systems
A temperature probe is one of the most important pieces of equipment used in the food industry; for obvious reasons. However, there are different probes for different uses, and is important to understand these, to ensure the correct type is used each time.
In essence, a temperature probe is a device used to measure the internal or external temperature of foods and liquids. However, they can also be used to monitor food prior to cooking, and the actual temperature of the surface conducting the heat, to ensure compliance is adhered to at all times.
The most common form of probe is that which is inserted into foods, particularly meat, to ensure the internal temperature reached is safe. This is certainly important when cooking poultry of course. Similar probes can be used for liquids as well of course, though the setting may need to be tailored.
On an industrial scale, temperature probes can monitor every section of production, and report data back in real time. This allows for working practice to be improved and clear strategies put in place, in the event that any processing falls down.
However, prevention is the key of course, and it is here that such stringent bank temperature monitoring comes into its own. Alerts will be raised if things are drifting from ideal temperatures, thus allowing proactive action; improving performance and ensuring compliance across the board.
