Infrared Thermometers And Tips For Getting Accurate Readings

Sunday, August 7th, 2016

Infrared thermometers have emerged as the easiest and most convenient temperature gauging instrument today. They use infrared rays to detect the temperature of an object in the surface without even touching the object that is to be measured. All you have to do with these devices is to aim it into the area whose measurement is required, pull the trigger and get the readings on the LCD screen. And all this can be achieved without so much as touching the object physically. However, to get accurate measurements, a few rules are to be followed that help in the long run in all application areas.

Measuring temperature in shiny surfaces:

It has been found that in the case of shiny surfaces, temperature measurement by infrared thermometers is affected by the reflectivity of the surface. Shiny surfaces here may range from aluminum and steel to non-stick cook wares. So, for gauging temperature in these kinds of situations, it is very necessary that you provide coating in these surfaces. This may consist of non-stick cooking spray, or masking tape that covers the reflective metal surface.

Measurements in extreme environment:

It is always important to keep the infrared thermometers in a place where it is being used frequently. This is because change from one extreme temperature to another can affect the functioning of these instruments to a great extent. For example if you have to gauge the temperature of an object that has been moved from the kitchen to the above freezing point or cold storage area, you can get accurate reading provided time is given to the infrared thermometers for acclimatization.

Use lightweight, compact, and user friendly infrared thermometers and measure temperature of objects even when they are hot, hazardous or are inaccessible to reach. And yes, use the above mentioned tips and you can never go wrong in temperature measurement of any object.

Infrared Thermometers to Prevent Food Borne Diseases

Sunday, April 26th, 2015

Infrared thermometers are very useful to monitor quality of food in different situations. In this article, you would get information on how to use this temperature gauging tool to maintain the right temperature to avoid all kinds of food borne diseases.

Different food stuff require different temperatures for serving or selling as well as for storage and infrared thermometers help in maintaining the same. Food like fresh meat or fish displays or cold buffets should be kept at a temperature of 4.4°C and not more than that. This is as per FDA’s 2000 Food Code.

Similarly, you can use infrared thermometers to measure the temperature that is required for hot holding of prepared foods. It is to be mentioned here that the temperature in this case should remain at 140°F (60°C) or above. This is especially applicable for soups, gravies, and other liquid foods.

If you are planning to cool precooked food (including leftovers) then for proper cooling it is recommended that you check the temperature reading that is to be maintained at 60 to 21.1°C in two hours, and then down to below 4.4°C in the next four hours. Do take care to maintain this because it has been found that improper cooling is the number one breeding ground of food borne illness.

Reheating is an important part of food preparation, as it kills all the harmful bacteria that may breed due to improper cooling or storage. Infrared thermometers can be used to maintain the right temperature for reheating of your food. According to the prevalent standards, the temperature should be maintained atleast at 165°F (73.9°C) to destroy any bacteria caused by improper cooling or storage techniques.

Apart from this, you can also use the infrared thermometers to maintain the temperature that is required for the preparation of certain recipes that require special temperature. Apart from helping you maintain the right temperature, this also help in avoiding the muddle that is created by using a conventional contact thermometer.

Hence, infrared thermometers are becoming indispensable in the food preparation and production industry to maintain quality.
