Their services are available on-site for customers that require verification and validation to ensure their equipment upholds with regulatory compliance.
A medical device manufacturer got in touch with Process Management, requesting to undertake an oven temperature mapping study using a data logger. In order to comply with government and company policy, this study must be conducted on an annual basis to ensure that the results are kept up to date.
Process Management use a clean process benchtop oven, which is normally used for packaging processes, sterilisation and drying. A temperature data logger was needed to ensure the oven maintained a temperature of 150°C with a tolerance of +/- 1.5 °C, with readings required every 30 seconds over an hour.
To conduct the oven temperature mapping study quickly and easily, Process Management chose to use the MadgeTech Titan S8 temperature data logger.
This portable, touch screen data logger allows for up to ten hours of continuous use, but also has eight probe channels to monitor temperature across different points. This was especially useful for Process Measurement, enabling a technician to place a Type K thermocouple at the top and bottom of each corner of the oven.
With MadgeTech’s Titan S8 data logger, temperature mapping across the eight points of the oven was a quick and straightforward process, where the technician was able to view the results in real-time, graph and tabular view. The data logger collected 976 readings in total, which were downloaded onto a USB and uploaded to a Microsoft Excel file ready for analysis.
The results showed that all eight points of Process Measurement’s oven were operating as they should be, either at or a tad above 150°C, thus passed the study and was given a certificate to verify this. By using MadgeTech’s wireless temperature data logger, the results could be collected, analysed and verified in an instant.
