  • What are HACCP guidelines?
    Question by: admin on 2018-10-24 10:29:51

    “HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point) is a system that helps food business operators look at how they handle food and introduces procedures to make sure the food produced is safe to eat.” - HACCP guidelines are put in place by the Food Standards Agency (FSA). Some of the HACCP guidelines that relate to temperature are: “Refrigeration: A food temperature of 8°C or below is effective in controlling the multiplication of most bacteria in perishable food. It is recommended practice to operate refrigerators and chills at 5°C or below. Freezing: Freezing of food at temperature of -18°C or below will prevent bacteria multiplying. Cooking: Temperatures of 75°C or above are effective in destroying almost all types of bacteria. However, cooking temperatures below this level are also effective provided that the food is held at these temperatures for a suitable time period. (refer to the Cooking HACCP chart) Hot holding: Temperature above 63°C will control the multiplication in hot food. Cooling: Food should be cooled as quickly as possible and then refrigerated. This will limit the growth of any bacteria or germination of spores that may be present. Reheating: All food that has previously been heated and is to be re-heated, must be raised to a temperature of 82°C, which will ensure that the food has been reheated to a safe and, in some cases, legally required temperature. Using a suitable time/temperature combination will also ensure that food has been reheated safely should higher temperatures be detrimental to the quality of the food, for example reaching a core temperature of 70°C for 2 minutes.” -

  • What are critical food safety temperatures?
    Question by: admin on 2018-10-24 10:28:32

    The most common food safety temperatures, as advised by HACCP, are as follows: Frozen food to be kept at -18°C of below Refrigerated food to be kept at 8°C or below Cooked food to reach temperature of 75°C Hot food to be held at 63°C When reheating, food should reach temperature of 82°C - These critical temperatures are subject to variation depending on your agreement with your enforcement officer. For example, it is safe to cook food at less than 75°C, provided that the cooking time of the food is increased accordingly.

  • Is it ok to leave my thermometer in the oven?
    Question by: admin on 2018-10-24 10:26:30

    Most of the time it is not ok to leave a thermometer in the oven. Some thermometers are specifically designed for this purpose, however most TME thermometers have an operating range of about 50°C, meaning that they will not be able to operate when left in temperatures higher than this. This rules out leaving them in an oven. However, TME manufactures multiple probes that can be left in an oven. Typically, this would be a probe with a stainless steel cable, such as the TP09 Needle Probe, the TP12 T-Bar Heavy Duty Needle Probe, or the TA06 Black Body Probe, which can all operate in temperatures up to 400°C. Using probes like these instead of a standard probe with a plastic handle/cable, you can leave the probe in an oven whilst attached to your thermometer (which is placed nearby) without risking any damage to your thermometer.

  • How accurate should my food thermometer be?
    Question by: admin on 2018-10-24 10:24:35

    HACCP guidelines recommend that food thermometers are accurate to within +/- 0.5°C. All TME-made thermometers and probes are at least this accurate, and most of our equipment is accurate to within +/- 0.25°C

  • What is a thermometer?
    Question by: admin on 2018-10-24 10:15:31

    A thermometer is an instrument that is used to measure temperature. Traditionally, thermometers consisted of a glass tube with a bulb at the end containing mercury, which would extend along the tube as it expanded to react to fluctuations in temperature. Nowadays, most industrial thermometers are digital. To find out more about thermometers, see our History of Thermometry page.

  • Why do I need an accurate thermometer?
    Question by: admin on 2018-09-05 11:56:31

    These days, all industries have legal requirements and regulations that they need to meet. Many of these, within the food catering/manufacture/retail industry and the facilities management industry especially, are based around temperature. Food served at the wrong temperature can be life threatening to a consumer, and water that is stored at the wrong temperature can be a breeding ground for the deadly legionella bacteria. Within manufacturing as well, there is a fine line between the right temperature, and one which will spoil an entire batch or product. In scientific applications, accurate thermometers are even more important, as temperature must be controlled extremely strictly. With this in mind, a lot of industrial bodies have issued guidelines about temperature control. For food, the HACCP regulations are very strict about temperatures of chilled, cooked and stored food, and recommend a thermometer with an accuracy of ±0.5°.

  • When is it important to use a thermometer?
    Question by: admin on 2018-09-05 11:54:29

    There are many different applications which require the use of a thermometer, from basic everyday tasks such as cooking or testing family members for a fever, to checking fridge/freezer/oven temperature, measuring water temperature to help prevent outbreaks of Legionnaires’ disease, reaching critical temperatures in a manufacturing process, maintaining temperatures during distribution of food products, tyre production, oil production, laboratory testing, facilities/building management and more. The risks of not having a thermometer for these applications vary from a burnt dinner to patients contracting a life-threatening disease.

  • What is the difference between a thermometer and a probe?
    Question by: admin on 2018-09-05 11:51:38

    Simply put, the thermometer is the ‘box’, where you will see a screen that displays measurements, and the probe is the thing connected to it. So the probe (or sensor), senses the temperature and sends a signal to the thermometer, which translates it into a figure (usually °C or °F) and displays it. Probes can come in many different varieties which are designed to suit a specific application (such as needle probes, flat food probes, air probes etc). Thermometers, too, can have many different applications in addition to displaying a temperature reading. Some thermometers have a hold function, or can calibrate other thermometers, scan barcodes or wirelessly send temperature readings to other electronic equipment such as PCs or PDAs.

  • How often should I calibrate my thermometer?
    Question by: admin on 2018-09-05 11:45:58

    Different Environmental Health Officers and HACCP Officers will require different levels of calibration. You should always follow the advice of your EHO on calibration. At TME, we are happy for the calibration of thermometers to be tested weekly, which you can do yourself. Most EHOs advise a yearly re-calibration of your thermometer and/or probe, which would consist of sending your thermometer away to be calibrated.

  • Do I need to buy a probe with my thermometer?
    Question by: admin on 2018-09-05 11:40:07

    If you don't have any kind of probe, you won't be able to use your thermometer. A thermometer, as we have established, translates a signal from a probe or sensor, therefore in order to have something to translate, you will need to plug a sensor into it. Be careful though, as some thermometers are supplied complete with probes, or have probes built-in. For example, TME's SOLO thermometer has a built-in needle probe, which is attached to, and swings out of the body of the thermometer. If you need a thermometer which you only use for one application (such as measuring core food temperature), these kinds of thermometers are a useful option. If, however, you know that you want your thermometer to measure different types of things (air and water, for example), you may want to think about a temperature kit. These offer a thermometer with (usually) more than one different type of probe, and TME offer a wide variety, tailored for different applications.

  • What is the colour coding for?
    Question by: admin on 2018-06-20 14:01:34

    TME have developed colour coded needle probes to help reduce the risk of bacterial cross-contamination between different food groups. Each probe handle is colour coded so it can be assigned to a particular food group: RED = Raw Meat, BLUE = Cooked Fish, YELLOW = Cooked Meat, GREEN = Washed Salad/Fruit, WHITE = Bakery and Dairy, BROWN = Vegetables.

  • What is a thermocouple thermometer?
    Question by: admin on 2018-06-18 13:22:07

    Thermocouple thermometers are the most widely used thermometer in the modern day. Thermocouples use electrical technology to show temperature. A thermocouple ‘couples’ together two different metals, one that is contained within the thermocouple thermometer, and one that forms a probe or sensor, to test the temperature of a substance or atmosphere. The difference in the temperatures of the two metals is expressed electrically through their different voltages. The temperature of the metal inside the thermocouple is already known, so the difference between the two temperatures allows us to easily deduce the temperature of the metal attached to the probe. The deduction is carried out using a microchip inside of the thermometer, and the temperature that the probe has sensed then shows on the display. Thermocouples are essential in many heating, manufacturing and electrical engineering applications, and can be found in different thermocouple types, according to the different metals used in the probes. Thermocouples have the advantage of a very fast response and large potential measurement range – from -270 to 1,800°C. TME thermocouple thermometers are compatible with several different thermocouple types (such as K/T/J/R/N/E/S). Most TME probes are in T type (for food applications) or K type (for non-food application), although we do manufacture probes in all different thermocouple types. In Summary ( Type T Thermocouple) Temperature range : Good Accuracy : Good Time Response : Good

  • What is an IP rating?
    Question by: admin on 2018-06-15 10:25:00

    IP (Ingress Protection) ratings are defined by an international standard. They define levels of effectiveness for sealing electrical enclosures against intrusion from moisture and dust. Each number of an IP rating has a specific meaning. For example, TME’s MM2000 digital thermometer has an IP rating of 67. IP67 enclosures translate as IP rated for ‘dust tight’ (that’s the 6), and protected against immersion in up to 1m of water for up to 30mins (that’s the 7). So the MM2000 is referred to as being IP67 waterproof.
