I assume you know how to use a thermocouple thermometer.

 

Assuming it's in "blocks"  in a refrig. container in cartons at ca. -18degC, you measure (external) the temp between touching adjacent cartons in various appropriate locations. This is a Codex procedure.

 

Theoretically the same logic applies to IQF also however I have known surveyors to stick a probe through the carton wall and internal wrapping. This is obviously a destructive method so hardly ideal.

 

The method is only reliable if the contact between thermometer probe and adjacent cartons is good.


Kind Regards,

Dear Charles
Thank you for the reply.
Btw, what does "ca." means?

Hi kylo,

 

It's abbreviation for "circa" meaning "approximate". Quicker than approx. :smile:
