Temperature control is vital to Ginsters, part of the Samworth Brothers business, in the production of 150M pies, pasties and sausage rolls at its Cornwall site. So it called on Loma Scientific to provide one of its Celsius non-invasive temperature management systems to monitor three lines.

Celsius offers accurate and non-destructive temperature measurements for a wide variety of chilled and frozen products. The system measures the equilibrium temperature of the product, not missing any hot or cold spots, and gives results in five seconds. It is not reliant on the positioning of a probe.

Prior to the installation of the Celsius machine, Ginsters was destructively probing a product every 30 minutes from each line. This equated to 70,000 products a year, resulting in considerable wastage and expense both in terms of product and the probes. With the Celsius system, products do not need to be thrown away after testing and there is no requirement to replace probes, resulting in significant savings and improvements in the quality assurance procedures.

The Celsius machine is simple to operate and eradicates the risk of operator error as readings are stored automatically. Since installation the Celsius machine has tested over 10,000 products, all of which were returned to the line after testing.
