Sanitary sampling ports are an essential tool for quality control in dairy and brewery applications. Sanitary samples can be quickly collected through these ports without interrupting the process and the ease of use helps ensure that testing procedures are followed. Now, these same ports can be used to check temperatures as well through QualiTru’s TruStream7 and TruStream12 septa that accept up to 14-gauge needles.
TEGAM has just released two special hypodermic temperature probes with a 16-gauge (0.062”) tip. These can be inserted into Qualitru’s sanitary sampling ports for accurate, easy and sanitary temperature readings. TEGAM’s 9T607MTC04 temperature probe is made of stainless steel for durability and easy cleaning. The 2” tip also provides sufficient reach into the product stream with a natural stop built-in for consistent measurement. This conventionally styled probe provides the most flexibility for dealing with sampling ports in a wide variety of orientations.
