Website updates and new site for the USA on its way

The last few weeks have been pretty busy here at Temperature Indicators. We’ve been busy upgrading our UK based website so that the software behind the scenes is completely up to date. This enables us to provide a good service selling a comprehensive range of temperature indicator thermometer labels, medical sterilisation and contamination indicators and food processing indicators. Whilst that has been going on we’ve also decided to invest in a website solely focused on the USA market, that will provide thermometer labels to industry. We’re busy building that and hope to launch it this summer.

We also have been supplying the SteriTec Retort Check and Air Check food canning batch processing indicator tags to our US customers for many years now. These are indicators made of strong, moisture resistant card that are used in a variety of canned food processes where a static retort is used. The ink used on the Retort Check tags will only change colour if the correct combination of time, temperature and steam (of a sufficient quality) is present in the retort. The Air Check tags are used when the process demands the use of small quantities of air to pressurise the retort vessel, usually a Lagarde system.

Over the last 2-3 years we’ve seen a big increase in business in the USA and we realised last year that the time was right to set up a new company to focus on providing the best possible service to our US customers. Our intention is to provide an online presence that will allow customers in the food processing sectors in the USA, Central America and South America to order online, check pricing and quantity discounts and to benefit from special offers, such as promotions and free delivery offers on our unique range of food processing indicators. We’re busy building that website and we hope that you’ll check it out. The software we’re using is right up to date and should enable us to list products through amazon, eBay and others whilst still providing a very high quality service to our long standing account customers who buy in volume.

All shipments will be from our new warehouse facility in California and we’re shipping orders with FedEx to ensure a prompt and reliable delivery to our customers.

As you can imagine, we want to get things right from the outset, so building the site will take a little time, but we’ll post an update when we’re at the testing stage.

Laundry temperatures

Laundry Strip Indicator

Laundry Temperature Label

From time to time we get enquiries about checking the temperature of clothing in industrial laundry facilities. Some regions have introduced minimum wash temperatures for clothing, particularly those used in food production facilities. Measuring temperatures in the wash process can be a difficult thing to achieve with traditional thermometers or electronic devices.

The good news is that any of our Irreversible Indicator Labels can be used to verify temperature achievement. These thermometer labels all come on adhesive backing paper – normally the labels would be removed from this paper and stuck on onto the surface being measured. For laundry processes, just cut the backing paper with the label still in place and staple or clamp on the garment (we’re told that the inside of a pocket gets the best results, where it avoids direct agitation and allows for heat penetration).

A number of our customers tell us that they need to hit temperatures at or just above 71C, and we recommend the 8 Level Range B and 10 Level Range B. Both are available in low minimum order quantities and are always in stock. They can be ordered online through our website, just go to the product page and select the range from the drop-down menu on the right hand side.

A photo of a shocking car interior temperature

Worrying isn’t it? This photo was taken through a windscreen, to show one of our Tempsafe indicators reacting to the interior temperature┬á of a vehicle in summer sunlight. We’re often asked if we can provide indicators for this application – often the results are very shocking. This could kill a pet in a matter of minutes.

We’re going to carry one of these USB Data Logging Thermometers around for a few days.

What do you think are the highest and lowest temperatures it will record?
