Ellab Thermal Validation Solutions - Industry leading accuracy
Since the late 1940's Ellab A/S has been a leading manufacturer of complete Thermal Validation Solutions for food, pharmaceutical, medical and other industries where thermal processing involves safety, energy savings, improvement of quality, and optimization. Ellab offers both wireless data loggers and wired thermocouple systems for highly accurate and reliable validation.
Temperature Validation & Monitoring Solutions
In the fifties there was a rapidly increasing demand from the food and pharmaceutical industries for fast and accurate temperature measurement during thermal processing. The combination of the electronic thermometer and the development of probes and accessories for measurements in all types of containers had a great impact for the industries, leading to the possibility of optimizing their processes in a way that was never seen before.
During the sixties our systems were improved with the state of the art technology, and from the beginning of the seventies Ellab supplied the first digital thermometers and temperature recorders on the market. These instruments were the first ones seen that were able to calculate Fo- and Po-Values, which was a significant breakthrough for the food and pharmaceutical industries.
The demand for a small wireless system resulted in the development of the PC-Based TrackSense® Data Logging System, which in combination with the software packages and the large range of accessories for all kind of applications was the most advanced on the market.
With the unrivalled PC-based E-Val™ and TrackSense® Family Ellab is today the only supplier of complete wireless and real time solutions. Masurements of time, temperature, pressure, deformation, relative humidity, rotation speed and the calculation of Fo/Po-values can be accumulated and displayed in the same process files.
The galvanometer system was further developed for temperature measurements in rabbits during the test for pyrogens, resulting in remarkable improvements in accuracy and ease of use for the pharmaceutical industry.
This know-how lead to the first temperature recorders which eliminated the labour intensive, manual recording temperatures and further to the first computerized automatic pyrogen testing system, capable of calculation and interpretation of the measured results, according to a range of pharmacopoeias.
Today Ellab provides the worlds most advanced PC-Based Pyromon™ System running on a Windows platform, including a database for tracking of all the rabbits.
Medical and Surgical Applications
As the result of continued demand from many medical practitioners the first portable light spot galvanometer thermometer was developed by Ellab. Together with a selection of unique thermocouple probes, this system was capable of very accurate and fast measurements. At a time when temperature measurements were being performed with a mercury in glass thermometer this was a tremendous achievement.
