The Testo 104-IR Thermometer fulfils the two most important functions for measuring the temperature of food: non-contact measurement with an infrared sensor and contact measurement with a penetration probe – all in one single instrument.
The infrared sensor measures surface temperature without contact, quickly and reliably. This means, for example, that supermarket employees can check very quickly whether goods that have just been delivered are at the right temperature. They can scan individual products or entire goods pallets within seconds. If a temperature limit value is exceeded, the penetration probe can be folded out and the product’s core temperature measured for safety purposes. “There is no longer any doubt as to whether a foodstuff subsequently destined for consumption is at the correct temperature”, explains Matthias Germer, Product Manager at Testo AG. What makes the Testo 104-IR so unique is that it performs two functions, but is so compact. The probe can be easily folded up once the job is finished, so it will fit into any jacket pocket.
The most important technical functions of the Testo 104-IR are not only its clever “one product, two purposes” feature, but also its high level of measurement accuracy. Its 2-point laser with 10:1 optics guarantees that users will make no mistakes when carrying out measurements. This is because the two laser points mark the position to be measured precisely. The robust design and folding joint make the Testo 104-IR a reliable temperature measuring instrument that is ideal for everyday use, for incoming goods, in the warehouse, in cold storage or in an industrial kitchen.
“This instrument makes complying with all the food safety standards such as HACCP or EN13485 easy”, explains Matthias Germer. “As soon as the probe is opened up, the display is activated and I can start measuring straight away. The laser responds by the simple touch of a button”. The Testo 104-IR is so practical and intuitive to use that it is not even necessary for personnel to undertake extensive training beforehand. Which saves both time and costs.
In conclusion, the Testo 104-IR can be used in the food sector wherever there is a requirement for temperature to be measured quickly and easily. Users will have everything they need in terms of measurement technology to be able to supply consumers with exclusively top-quality goods every single time.
