Ellab Temperature Indicator
The ETI is a high quality digital temperature-indicating device designed for displaying and documenting the processing temperature in retorts. It complies with FDA 21 CFR Part 113, and it is ideal for thermal processing of low-acid canned foods. The ETI has a digital display that is easy to read, offers an accuracy of +/- 0.1°C, and does not constitute a potential source of mercury contamination.
Compliant with FDA 21 CFR Part 113
Documented and Traceable Accuracy
The ETI accuracy of +/- 0.1°C / 0.18°F is tested against an accurate calibrated reference device and is delivered with a NIST traceable (or equivalent) calibration certificate. The ETI sensor has a unique ID which is shown on the calibration certificate ensuring traceability.
The combination of full compliance with FDA regulations and Ellab's renowned quality and high reliability makes the ETI an excellent choice for retort monitoring. Recognizing that product safety, quality and efficiency are critical to our clients, Ellab has added additional features to the ETI.
Data Transfer and Alarming
An RS485 port allows for an additional display to be connected or it enables the user to transfer temperature/time data to a computer or PLC system. An output channel allows for automatic alarms.
The factory recalibration procedure is made simple as the sensor holds both calibration constants and ID which are independent from the display. When sending the sensor in for factory calibration, a certificate will be issued which includes all of the information needed to comply with FDA regulations and ensures the reliability and accuracy of the ETI. The calibration date is easily visible on the digital display. The ETI display automatically shows a warning 28 days before factory recalibration is due.
