The main purpose of Temperature Mapping is to determine whether a storage area, facility or equipment can maintain a set temperature within specific limits uniformly throughout the entire unit volume. Typical storage units being Fridges, Freezers, Cold Rooms, Warehouses, Incubators e.t.c.). Temperature Sensors are normally distributed throughout the unit/room in pre-defined locations to ensure that the temperature of the entire storage area is monitored.
Customers can choose the type of mapping suitable for their specific applications i.e. empty mapping, loaded mapping, door open, power failure, etc. These tests are designed to create documented evidence that the unit controls within pre-defined parameters.
At BSM Technics we are experienced in Temperature Mapping. We do carry out Temperature mapping on a lot of thermal product units as listed below;
Lab Fridges & Freezers
The period of Temperature Mapping depends on your specific requirements. Typically;
16 minutes - Real-time monitoring
30 Minutes - Real-time monitoring
1 hr - Real-time monitoring
24/48hrs - Loggers left in the unit for the entire mapping period.
What is involved with Temperature Mapping?
Temperature distribution and uniformity in the unit under test (UUT) will be monitored by the use of calibrated temperature sensors.
An electronic mapping certificate with all the relevant data will be issued.
A mapping sticker will be affixed to the equipment showing the mapping date, due date, equipment ID as well as the Mapping Certificate Number for easy of reference.
