Timestrip PLUS temperature indicators

Features

Timestrip® PLUS are small and self-adhesive so they can be attached directly to a product, package or shipment. They can be stored inert at room temperature and then activated without pre-conditioning when required.

 

Timestrip PLUS temperature indicators provide simple, quick and cost effective answers. They record elapsed time at or above a specified threshold temperature; for example at 8°C/46°F for up to 8 hours.

How it works:

All Timestrip PLUS temperature indicators work from three principles. A mixture will melt from solid to liquid form when an ascending temperature threshold is breached and return to solid form if the temperature falls again to its freeze point (STOP temperature). When in liquid form, the mixture will move laterally through a porous membrane at a known rate. The progress of the liquid will be visible through a viewing window.
Once any Timestrip® PLUS is activated, if the temperature being monitored remains below the STOP temperature, the blue colour will not move. If the threshold is breached, the blue colour will progress to the viewing window with the time markers. Each movement is irreversible so the cumulative time of any temperature breaches is shown by how far the blue colour has moved along the time markers.

Stock products temperatures available:

-20°C, 0°C, 8°C, 10°C, 25°C, 30°C , 38°C

Custom temperatures can be produced subject to minimum order quantities.

TypeIrreversible, single use
Activation FeatureA manual activation button on the top – the ‘On’ window turns blue to confirm it is armed.
IndicationA blue colour appears in the viewing window if a breach of the threshold temperature has occurred. The duration of one or more breaches is shown by how far the blue colour has progressed along the time markers.
