Cold storage room temperature monitoring is essential to ensure that food is stored safely. Temperature changes in cold storage rooms may cause both financial and health-related problems. For this reason, temperature in cold storage rooms must be monitored constantly.
Cold storage room temperature monitoring has been done by people for centuries. Before the modern era, people would store their food in cold caves. With technological advancements, caves have been replaced by cold storage rooms, humidification systems and unit coolers.
What is a Cold Storage Room?
Cold storage rooms are places where food and other products that require cold storage are stored. Cooling equipment and air flow of the cold storage rooms are specially designed for their purpose. To control the temperature in cold storage rooms, cold storage doors, cold storage panels and cold storage shelves are used. They are used for various purposes:
- Preservation of perishable foods: Unless preserved properly, meat is the best environment for bacterial overgrowth. These bacteria may pose a great threat for
human health. Meat products must be preserved in cold temperature in every stage; slaughter, storage, distribution and sale.
- Storage of Dairy Products: Dairy products must be stored in cold temperature until UHT packaging. Lack of temperature control may result in bacterial overgrowth or product loss.
- Storage of Fruits and Vegetables: Fruits and vegetables must be stored in cold storage rooms after harvest. The storage room for fruits and vegetables is not to be as cold as the cold storage rooms where meat or dairy products are stored. However, these rooms must be cool and humid.
What is Cold Storage Room Temperature Monitoring?
Cold storage room temperature monitoring is to ensure that temperature in the cold storage rooms is steady and convenient for the stored product. Temperature changes in a cold storage room may have a direct impact on bacterial reproduction. This may lead to product loss or even health hazards. For this reason, temperature in cold storage rooms is controlled using unit coolers and humidification systems.
By this classification, unit coolers and humidification systems must be used to control the temperature at which the products are to be stored.
