  3. Hot Water Tank Case Study



One of the leading, independent manufacturers of stainless steel hot water tanks and pressure vessels in Europe produce more than 120,000 hot water tanks, with a capacity of 1 up to 1000 liters. With their excellence in hot water tank engineering, the temperature aspect is very important, however, if the temperature has been set too high the tank can corrode.


To provide a system to check whether the water temperature of the tank has reached excessive temperatures.


Each tank is fitted with an Irreversible Thermax® 4 Level Range C, therefore if the boiler is returned (for any reason), the manufacturer can easily check that the temperature was not set too high. The indicator forms part of their Quality Control measures and warranty procedures.

Dialysis Case Study: WarmMark®

Dialysis Case Study: WarmMark®

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

Thermax® Encapsulated Indicators

SpotSee’s Thermax® Encapsulated Indicators show medical personnel at a glance whether temperatures within the packaging exceeded safe temperature thresholds. With this go/no go clarity, medical professionals know whether the suture can go into inventory or should be discarded. read more

Medical Devices Case Study: ShockWatch RFID

Medical Devices Case Study: ShockWatch RFID

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

Freeze Indicator Case Study

Freeze Indicator Case Study

Freezing isn’t good for many pharmaceutical products, so pharmacies, caregivers and, increasingly, patients, need a way to know whether their products froze in transit. SpotSee’s new freeze indicator provides that information. read more
