    Discover the INNOLOG™ SU data logger and get a free sample

    Discover the INNOLOG™, the single-use temperature data logger developed by KELVIN SOLUTIONS. INNOLOG™ is an electronic device powered by a button battery (CR2450) that records temperature data through an internal digital sensor; it processes them through a microprocessor (CPU) and stores them in a RAM memory. To enable and stop it, simply click on the dedicated button on the data logger. ​ The device is sold with a pre-installed temperature-sampling program. It is ready to use. If necessary, it is possible to request customization of the sampling times and the alarm… Read more

  • Importance of temperature controlled transport

    Importance of temperature controlled transport

    Temperature-controlled transport will play an increasingly important role within logistics due to the rise in the volumes of goods that can deteriorate (pharmaceuticals and medical products, fresh and frozen food products, flowers and plants) and the greater distances between production sites and places of consumption. The complexity of the system (use of dedicated and insulated transport, need to handle diverse temperatures within the same delivery), the burden of the increasingly stringent laws, which involve transported goods, and the need to guarantee the customer’s requests for… Read more

  • Benefits of temperature control in cut flowers

    Benefits of temperature control in cut flowers

    Most of the cut flowers sold in Europe come from Kenya and Colombia and pass through the Dutch flower market. Flowers are delicate products where storage temperature and transport time play an important role in the quality of the final product. Once harvested, cut flowers are stored at low temperatures to keep them in a 'dormant' state and delay their blooming, which must occur in customers' homes and premises. The quality of the flower is maintained by transporting it as quickly as possible and at a constant, controlled temperature: sudden changes in temperature, excessive heat and cold… Read more

  • Temperature monitoring in fresh and frozen food products

    Temperature monitoring in fresh and frozen food products

    The majority of food products, above all fresh and frozen food products, are formed by products that deteriorate easily due to temperatures that are too high or low and humidity. In addition, the distance between the production and the selling sites is often considerable and requires a lengthy journey. This is why the foods are transported under controlled temperature conditions in which the cold chain assures retention of the organoleptic and nutritional quality and safety for consumer health. ​For fresh food products, refrigeration limits or blocks the growth of bacteria that not only… Read more
