In this article, you will learn the most typical uses of the Temperature Data Loggers for thermal mapping and other validation studies. Also, you can discover how to get a Thermal Mapping Validation Template and Validation Management Software Application to handle your qualification activities more easily.
The 5 Most Common Uses of Temperature Data loggers
They are important in applications ranging from monitoring the thermal conditions of the sterilization process, cleanrooms and storage conditions inside refrigerators, warehouses, transportation containers, etc.
Especially useful for measurements over extended periods to determine long-term trends, maximum or minimum temperature obtained, and the duration of exposure.
For the continuously monitor conditions without having to be attended. Uses of the Temperature Data Loggers
Since data loggers can monitor temperature and % relative humidity, but also, carbon dioxide, pH, pressure, voltage, current, and pulse – they are suitable for many applications, as:
1. To verify the temperature and humidity conditions of your products at the storage and travel containers.
2. For the monitoring of the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning HVAC operations to assist with energy conservation.
3. For environmental monitoring to control the bacterial growing conditions in hospitals and medicines manufacturing facilities.
4. For the monitoring of storage temperature of vaccines and other products inside a medical facility.
5. For the measurement of the food temperature.
CIQA can bring you these services, as well as the rental of the data loggers to make the monitoring.
Thermal studies require the use of very expensive validation instrumentation and equipment, which represent a high cost in many cases if the utilization of that equipment is very low.
Since some companies do not have the internal personnel with the experience and knowledge to perform these studies, they contract third-party companies as CIQA Engineering to make that work. Thermal Mapping Outcomes
CIQA Engineering has the equipment and experienced professionals to perform the thermal mapping and qualifications. We can prepare the protocols, bring the measurement instruments for monitoring, make the analysis and reporting documents once the data is gathered.
Recommendations to Avoid Mistakes Using Temperature Data Loggers.
We suggest evaluating all your requirements and needs to use temperature data loggers, 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. Thermal Mapping Outcomes
One of our data logger experts can set up, configure and bring to you the data loggers ready to use and be installed to collect information from your thermal mapping study. At the end of your monitoring, you can send the data loggers back to us for data extraction, evaluation, and perform the statistical analysis and plotting with averages, maximums, and minimums.
