There are times when you can use a standard cold shipment truck for shipping products like refrigerated or frozen foods for a grocery store. However, there are also times when you have to ship more sensitive products that require much colder temperatures that might be as low as -100 degrees Fahrenheit. In times such as these, you will see specialized shipment trucks as well as ultra-low temperature monitoring systems. Here is some information about what they are used for.
Track Ultra-Low Temperatures
As the name suggests, ultra-low temperature monitoring is all about tracking ultra-low temperatures to ensure that the temperatures don’t fluctuate above or below the critical temperature parameters. Many monitors aren’t made to stand such extreme temperatures, but this monitoring system is specially made to withstand and accurately read extremely low temperatures. It is also set to take sample readings every five minutes rather than longer amounts of time to ensure the most accurate temperature logs.
Keeping Sensitive Products Safe
There are several different types of products that require ultra-low temperatures to stay at top quality and absolute safety for consumption. Vaccines are one example. If the temperatures rise even one degree above -80 degrees for some vaccines, then the potency, consistency, and maybe even safety of the vaccine may be affected. Ultra-low temperature monitoring can help ensure and provide full logs as proof that the temperatures stayed within the required parameters throughout transit and that the vaccines or other goods are still safe for the end user.
Ultra-low temperature monitoring is a necessary safety measure for the transit or storing of any temperature-sensitive product that requires ultra-low temperatures. Give us a call if you would like to learn more.
