In this article, you will learn some tips on why most persons rent Temperature Data Loggers for thermal mapping and other validation studiesIn addition, you can find out how to get a Thermal Mapping Validation Template and Validation Management Software Application to handle your qualification activities fast and easily.

5 Reasons to Rent Temperature Data Loggers in the Modern Industry.

Temperature data loggers can be bought or rented for a wide range of applications in many industries worldwide.  But most of them are required urgently to perform a validation study that cannot wait until you can buy and calibrate them.

Why do most people prefer to rent temperature data loggers to make thermal mappings & validation studies instead to buy them? Rent Temperature Data Loggers

Reason 1. Due to the prolonged period and lead time of approximately 2 weeks to buy and get temperature data loggers in-site.  The option to get an immediate rental of calibrated data loggers makes the process faster, accessible, affordable, and viable to start a validation study in less than 24 hours.

Reason 2. In addition, most vendors sell their data loggers without calibration.  So, after you place the order to buy them, you need to coordinate and pay for their calibration certificates.  It requires one or two weeks more to get temperature data loggers in-site. In summary, adding the time of purchase plus the time of calibration, you shall wait approximately 4 weeks to receive and use the new data loggers that you may buy.

Reason 3. The approval and acquisition process to buy expensive items as data loggers are difficult and long since may require the management approval of a high-price requisition and purchase order to buy versus a low-price to rent. It makes the buying option more complicated and difficult if the time frame to perform the validation study is short.

Reason 4. The time required and the learning process to configure them correctly and use a new datalogger is extensive and complex if you have no previous experience doing it. Therefore, renting data loggers that include the CIQA full services of the initial setup, and configuration make your life easier to perform a validation study with time constraints.

Reason 5. In the same way, the time and learning process to extract the information from the data loggers after completed the validation study to create the summary report with the statistical analysis, calculations and trending graphs could be complicated and time-consuming for beginners. Therefore, it is more easy and fast to rent data loggers that include the CIQA full services of summary reporting, statistical calculations, etc.

Recommendations to Avoid Mistakes Selecting Temperature Data Loggers.

We suggest evaluating all your requirements and needs to use temperature data loggers mentioned above, but, also consider the frequency of use monthly, and how fast you need them on-site for your validation study.

So, you can determine if is better to buy or rent them based on the expertise and time availability of your employees to configure and prepare the trending graphs and summary statistical reports on time.

Before buy, consider the cost of the data loggers, but, also the cost of the calibration and its lead time.

Evaluate and compare the total costs and lead times, against the costs to rent data loggers already calibrated.

If you are NOT using temperature data loggers frequently, consider a fast CIQA rental of the calibrated data loggers required for the thermal study.
