Detectable Food Industry Temperature Probe – Detectamet leading the way in preventing foreign body contamination

Detectamet have long been viewed as pioneers in food safety and their new innovative detectable temperature probe shows they are still at the forefront of this industry.

Made from Detectamet’s unique detectable polymer, it’s both metal detectable and X-Ray visible, ensuring you continue to minimise your risk of foreign body contamination within the guidelines of your HACCP plan.

With a patent pending, this digital food temperature probe is the first detectable thermometer on the market. The smooth, durable surface makes it easy to keep hygienically clean and its wide measuring range makes it suitable for all food, storage and equipment checks.

It can also be stored in a wall mountable detectable holder, allowing you to have a probe at each crucial stage in the food production and storage process.

“Within the tight confines of the food safety industry, companies cannot be confident that raw materials, storage (fridge, freezers, hot hold areas etc.), ovens, cooked dishes etc. are all within safe limits without the use of an accurate food temperature probe,” says Leo Wild, Detectamet’s sales manager.

“With the introduction of new measures in BRC Version 8, it’s imperative your employees know how to perform food probe checks. It’s also an ideal time to review current practices and update your HACCP plan, if required,” continues Leo.

“All the different processes needed to create the finished food product require different temperatures. Under BRC, senior management have the responsibility to ensure their employees know what these different temperatures are, equip them with the correct thermometer to measure, and build in testing and maintenance to ensure the probe is working correctly.

“Storing, freezing, thawing, cooking and serving food all present inherent risks for bacterial contamination and our new food probe is an easy way to ensure these threats are minimised.”

Not only are Detectamet’s products detectable (and available in a range of visible colours) but are also made out materials that are compliant with European and other global standards for food contact use.
