Food Safety and HACCP is the process of Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points, which is done for the food processing matter. In this type of system, food is kept at a predefined temperature. Then, it is measured and monitored in a continuous manner using Infrared Thermometers supplied by Vacker Saudi Arabia or KSA to areas such as Dammam, Riyadh, Al Khobar, Jeddah, etc. HACCP is for finding and resolving this type of hazards in food culturing or processing. Here process meant to be series of the actions in which food cooking, delivery and distribution can be held.
In the sector of food, it is needed to be careful because it is directly concerned with human health.
For this type of series of actions or processing two types of methods are used in HACCP for Food Safety. Mostly these methods are done while pre-cooking, cooking and processing of food.
The methods we discussed are:
- Touch method in which device will touch the food
- Non Touch method where device is shown from near or far from the food
Vacker Saudi Arabia is dealing with HACCP for Food Safety in different parts of Saudi Arabia. We have customers around the KSA like Riyadh, Al Khobar, Dammam, Jeddah, etc.
Food thermometer with probe Saudi Arabia applications
Food thermometer having probe mechanism is based on touch method. The device has a probe which is used for touching the food and finding out the temperature. The probe is a sensor in food thermometers. Basically, this sensor touches the food and knows the temperature and the system converts it to visual form.
For different types of applications, food cannot be touched for health reasons. So, the probe cannot be inserted in the food. For this kind of food processing system, we use non-touch food processing system. This is done through different methods, one of the methods is the infrared method. This is called thermometer and because of use of infrared, it is called infrared thermometer or IR thermometer. The infrared ray is shown to the food and the temperature is measured. It shows the surface temperature.
Moreover, both devices are used for different reasons. It can be done either using touch or non-touch method. Non-touch method gives surface only, probe can be inserted and hence can measure internal temperature as well.
Both types of thermometers have a temperature limit. It is a programed system in the device. So, there are range of temperature check devices in touch and non-touch methods.
Selection of Food Thermometer with probe for Saudi Arabia or KSA
Selection of Probe Thermometers can be done in different parameters. Each country basis temperature, probe thermometer is available in different ranges. Following are some of the factors for the selection of the food thermometer:
- Range of measurement from food to probe
- Range of measurement from food to infrared
- System program temperature range that can handle by the thermometer
- IP 65 or high Ingress protection, and it should be at least 65
- IR reading and Probe Thermometer reading accuracy mentioned
