What are Data Loggers?
Data logger which are also referred to as data recorder is basically an electronic device that helps in the recording of data over time or at times in relation to the location of its placement with a sensor or an instrument which is pre built. The data loggers used in the recent times are actually based on a processor which is digital in nature. But with the advancement of technology the data loggers have become extremely small as well as portable and they come with a sensor, microprocessor and internal memory for the purpose of recording data.
Applications for Pasteurisation Process
Pasteurisation is nothing but a process that helps in the reduction and destruction of bacteria in the product which otherwise could be harmful to the health of the human beings. Pasteurisation is basically one of the most critical process in the production of milk, cheese, alcohol and juice. As per the quality food standards, the manufacturers need to necessarily show clear evidences that the products have undergone the process of pasteurisation. For this purpose, the manufacturers make use of a separate data acquisition for continuous recording and monitoring of several parameters of the process. This process is either carried out as a continuous process or a batch process which is exactly where the data loggers come to the rescue of the manufacturers.
G-Tek’s smart screen series of paperless data loggers can be easily employed by the manufacturers for the measurement of the exact temperature of the product. The data loggers are also able to taken the input of the divert valve position. The manufacturers are easily able to see the trend chart in the exact format as intended such as strip chart format or circular chart. In the pasteurisation plant, the data loggers not only help in the monitoring of the process but also helps in the controlling of the position of the valve to divert the fluid in case the temperature goes down up to a certain limit.
The data loggers of G-Tek comes with a client – based software known as gtekNetTM which allows data to be recorded in real time on a server which can be conveniently seen from anywhere via internet or under intranet. In an addition to this, the software helps in the sharing of data between different departments as and when required. Reports can also be generated automatically and send to the intended recipients making is extremely convenient for the users. The data loggers are also able to generate voice alarms or SMS alerts in case of extreme conditions or unfavourable events. The users would be able to view multiple data recorded by the instrument at a time or individually as per the requirements.
Apart from being used in the pasteurisation industry, these data loggers are also quite useful in the monitoring of the process parameters in freeze drying, tyre, sterilisation, fermentation process, environmental parameters monitoring, flow & heat treatment and a number of other process parameters in a lot of industries.
