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 Indicator. The calibration date is easily visible on the digital display. The ETI Indicator display automatically shows a warning 28 days before factory recalibration is due.

Ellab Temperature Indicator
ETI - Indicator
The ETI Indicator 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 Indicator 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.

Documented and Traceable Accuracy
The ETI Indicator 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 Indicator 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 Indicator an excellent choice for retort monitoring. Recognizing that product safety, quality and efficiency are critical to our clients, Ellab has implemented the following features to the ETI Indicator:
- Internal rechargeable 8-hour battery
- Multiple probe lengths and sensor fittings
- Automatic warning upon loss of accuracy or probe mailfunction
To ensure that your process continues to provide safe and sterile results, your autoclave must comply with established standards and norms (EN 285 and ISO 17665). In order to successfully do this, autoclaves require periodic qualification and validation to prove that they sterilize within their qualified parameters – and thereby provide completely clean and sterile materials and equipment.
Food and Beverages
Retort Sterilization in the food industry refers to any closed vessel or other equipment used for the thermal processing of foods. Typically, the sterilization temperatures vary from 110 to 135°C.
Both static and rotary steam/air retorts, and water immersion/cascade/spray retorts require temperature validation.
