Avoid common mistakes when using your temperature monitor May 23, 2019 - Temperature monitoring devices are becoming more versatile and efficient in both real time monitoring and user-friendly technological improvements. Even so, there may be times where it seems as though the temperature monitoring device is not operating optimally. This not only impacts negatively on costs but also disrupts the smooth running of a facility. This makes it imperative that the problem be corrected as soon as possible. In this blog, we will discuss basic guidelines for trouble shooting so that you can identify the problem and use your device optimally. There are a number of questions you can ask when trying to discern what is the root cause of a problem. Step 1# Are you using a single use or reusable device? As the name suggests, single use devices are used only once and then they are discarded. The Tempsen Itag 3 and Tempsen Itag4 are both single use devices.… ...continue reading.
How technology is changing the way we do temperature monitoring Apr 23, 2019 - Temperature monitoring dates back to the 1500s with the invention of the thermoscope by Galileo. Since then, advancement in temperature monitoring technology has changed radically in order to keep up with globalisation and the consequent pressure of supply and demand. The monitoring of temperature is now in place throughout the supply chain, from the supplier to the end user. Before the advent of the internet, temperature measurement data logging was done manually using a chart recorder. The data was not always reliable or accessible for mathematical and statistical analysis. At Temperature Monitoring Solutions Africa, we understand that consumers expect accurate, quality temperature monitors in order to compete with their specific growing markets. Our company also makes sure to distribute temperature monitors which stay ahead of the curve technologically to offer the most effective temperature monitoring. Here is how temperature monitoring has more recently evolved. What is already in place Data… ...continue reading.
Facts and fallacies that influence temperature monitoring efficiency Mar 19, 2019 - The value of temperature monitoring is often underestimated.

What temperature measurement intervals do you require? Do you need to measure a range of temperature conditions or… ...continue reading.
Is temperature monitoring critical to operational success? Feb 25, 2019 - As a business owner, there is an expectation that equipment and machinery will run safely and reliably at all times. Of course, this ensures that unplanned downtime during operation is minimised so that costs remain constant and production stays on schedule. In reality, this is not always the case. Often, due to poor maintenance and monitoring of systems, the equipment used becomes worn down and/ or breaks down entirely which leads to a low productivity or the inability to work entirely, and ultimately, loss of profits. Thankfully, there are simple solutions that can be implemented to create a reliable and productive environment, starting with temperature monitoring. Often overlooked, temperature monitoring plays a vital role in condition monitoring, which is pivotal to the success of many industries including the chemical, pharmaceutical, automotive and mining industries. Temperature monitoring devices are critical in maintaining the safety of people and assets where sensitive chemicals… ...continue reading.

TMSA partners with High Veg Herbs for a promising future Dec 5, 2018 - UCook and Pesto Princess are two well-known brands enjoyed by South Africans on a regular basis because of their fresh quality ingredients. What not many people will realise, however, is that a local farm right in the humble town of Robertson supplies fresh herbs to these culinary giants, as well as Allee Bleue Herbs - a major distributer to all SA retailers. High Veg Herbs started out as the small farming project of George and Elize Kleynhans in 2007. The founders were farm workers at the time with a real desire to use their skills for something more. Initially they produced vegetables for the crèche and youth centre on the surrounding Graham Beck farms, and then moved into herb production on the open land. In 2016 the company received a grant from the Western Cape Department of Agriculture, which allowed them to erect 2100 metre squared hydroponic tunnels, which the… ...continue reading.
Under the radar – overlooked chemicals in temperature monitoring Nov 23, 2018 - Our main objective as a company is to offer valuable temperature monitoring solutions to assist in the transportation and storage of quality products across the African continent. Seldom do we consider temperature monitoring of chemicals, but of course these highly combustible substances are often transported and stored.
