HI

 

Can anybody point me in the right direction.

 

I am after buying some temperature strips to place in a washing machine as we wash our own cutting gloves on site and I need to validate my temperatures.

 

Your help would be appreciated

Hi Aps,

 

We are a BRC grade A site and buy our temperature strips from the below link;

 

http://www.amazon.co...8051_TE_3p_dp_1

 

The auditors have had no problems with its use :spoton: 

Basically, the strips have 3 white squares with temp indicators (71, 76.5 and 82°c).

Work wear is washed at 90°c, once washed the white squares turn a black/ grey colour. Our procedure state the wash should reach above 70°c - so at least one square should change colour after wash.

The strips can then be removed from clothing and placed on to a form for auditors to see.  

 

​Hope this helps.

i found an interesting product from Thermoworks called DishTemp.  You put it in the dishwasher and it measures and stores the highest temperature.

To repeat Post 2 -

 

what is the specific objective ?

 

eg what is required temperature and for how long to be maintained at the (presumably) glove surface.

 

minimum 75degC instantaneously ?


Kind Regards,

 

Charles.C
