Storage and transport temperatures for chocolate is extremely important as it can easily deteriorate with respect to both appearance and taste.
A leading chocolate and confectionery manufacturer needed a way of checking if the goods had been exposed to its melting point temperature, as this would cause the fat constituents of the chocolate to separate out and then solidify upon re-cooling, leaving the chocolate with a white/grey appearance.
A custom version of the 6 Level Mini Range 1 is used to monitor the temperature of the pallets on which the chocolate based products are carried within their warehouse. The indicator is applied to each pallet to ensure that the product is not exposed to temperatures higher than 29ºC. This process proves that the pallet has been correctly stored and handled from manufacture to despatch. The temperature check also ensures that the goods will arrive at their destination in first class condition.
Other Case Studies
WarmMark thermal indicators are as easy to use as they are to read. The dialysis center simply adds the WarmMark temperature card to the box containing the blood samples and ships it as usual. When the package arrives, lab technicians have visual confirmation showing whether the samples exceeded safe thermal thresholds and, if so, for how long. Then they know what steps to take to protect the integrity of the results. read more

Impact indicators have long been used to monitor medical equipment in transit. However, an RFID enabled impact indicator is just as valuable after medical devices are in service. The RFID will alert teams to possible damage due to impact as well as track equipment in use, lowering the loss of due to misplaced or stolen devices. read more
