Data Loggers for Wool Packing Company

Chichester, West Sussex, UK: Tinytag data loggers, which monitor temperature ranges, have been “invaluable tools” during the company’s latest research and development programme, says the Wool Packaging Company.

The Wool Packaging Company specialises in the design, manufacture and supply of insulated packaging which use sheep’s wool as a natural ‘smart fibre’, proven to consistently outperform unsustainable products like polystyrene for time and temperature sensitive goods, including food and pharmaceuticals. The company regularly uses Tinytag data loggers to subject its insulated packaging products, such as Woolcool, to rigorous temperature trialling.

Tinytag Transit 2 data loggers are used to monitor temperatures at several different locations within an insulated package and also to record the external ambient temperature for comparison. Ambient temperatures may range between +35°C and down to -35°C in ‘real-life’ delivery situations and the packaging insulation must be able to withstand this variance.

The Tinytag Transit 2 is lightweight and robust with a compact design, making it ideal for unobtrusive placement with consignments such as food, pharmaceuticals and other products in transit by road, rail, sea and air. It is BS EN 12830 compliant to meet the demands of the frozen and chilled foods storage and transportation industries.

Recorded data is downloaded to a PC via a USB cable: however if many units require rapid downloading for immediate analysis an inductive pad is available to facilitate the process.

Keith Spilsbury, managing director of The Wool Packaging Company, says: “Tinytags have proved to be invaluable tools during our intensive 2012 R&D programme.”
