For the food and food packaging sectors, the ability to accurately monitor internal temperatures of product deliveries is critical. In the case of chilled foodstuffs, products must be kept below 5°C for a minimum of 24 hours during delivery to the end user. This is a UK legal requirement under The Food Standards Act 1999.

Tinytag data loggers are used worldwide for monitoring transport and storage conditions. For example, Tinytags are used by sustainable packaging manufacturers, The Wool Packaging Company, to subject its insulated packaging products, such as Woolcool®, to rigorous temperature trialling. The company designs and manufactures insulated packaging which use sheep’s wool as a natural ‘smart fibre’, proven to consistently outperform unsustainable products like polystyrene for time and temperature sensitive goods. Tinytag Transit 2 battery powered data loggers monitor temperatures at several different locations within an insulated package and also record the external ambient temperature for comparison.

The Tinytag Transit 2 is lightweight, robust and compact for unobtrusive placement with consignments in transit. It is BS EN 12830 compliant to meet the demands of the frozen and chilled foods storage and transportation industries. Recorded data is downloaded to a PC via a USB cable, however if many units require rapid downloading for immediate analysis, an inductive pad is available to facilitate the process.
