An infrared thermometer measures temperature without contact through a point-and-click activity, which then measures temperature from black-body radiation or infrared energy produced by the material being targeted for temperature measurement.
Modern pesticides are a product of the birth of the first synthetic organic chemicals (organochloride compounds) in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Many organochloride compounds, such as BHC and DDT, were first synthesized in the 1800s’, but their properties as insecticides were not fully discovered and exploited until the late 1930’s.
Many chemical compounds can be responsible for scent and flavor in botanicals. These chemicals are transformed into neural impulses and travel along the various facial and major nerves to centers in the brain which then interpret the impulses and create taste perception. These perceptions of taste, along with texture, smell and the sensation associated with temperature, pain and pressure (chemesthesis) combine to create the impressions of flavor.
Temperature-sensitive items such as meats, vaccines, drugs, plants, and chemicals require temperature-controlled environments from the time they are manufactured until they reach the end user. The cold chain is established to keep the quality of these types of products in check as they travel to the end user, by reducing risk and maintaining product integrity.
Consistent, accurate temperature control plays a vital role in creating the most productive cannabis extraction workflow. See how to control temperature throughout cannabis extraction and distillation to achieve expected material throughput, quality, and increase uptime. Read more in this white paper.
When it comes to food safety every single item must be tracked and risk managed along its journey from farm to fork. Any lapse in food safety can have detrimental consequences on the consumer and have a negative financial impact on a company, not to mention significant repercussions on reputation.
