Temperature Mapping

In any pharmaceutical, biotechnology, healthcare, or food processing unit, maintaining a specific temperature level is crucial. It helps ensure product stability, efficacy, and safety, aiding the business to operate effectively. Do you want to maintain a proper temperature range in a temperature-controlled environment? It is when you need temperature mapping services.

Temperature mapping is a process of monitoring and assessing the temperature distribution within an enclosed environment. This can be refrigerators, incubators, stability chambers, warehouses, etc. Industries that rely on temperature-sensitive processes can undergo this method to ensure product quality and compliance with regulatory standards.

At PLS Analytical, we have a team of professionals helping businesses maintain the integrity and reliability of their equipment. We use advanced temperature monitoring devices like data loggers, thermocouples, and wireless temperature sensors to record temperature variations.

Ensure Precision and Quality with Our Temperature Mapping Process

Our temperature mapping process involves a series of systematic steps to collect and assess reliable data from an enclosed environment. Here are a few steps we follow.

  • Making a strategic plan: Initially, we understand the purpose of temperature mapping and learn about the equipment that you want to map. We note down the desired temperature range and identify the industry-specific regulatory requirements to serve the purpose effectively. Some stringent regulatory requirements include Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP), Good Distribution Practices (GDP), etc.
  • Equipment calibration: Based on the equipment type and complexity, we choose our temperature monitoring devices. These include data loggers, thermocouples, and sensors. We verify the accuracy and precision of these devices, calibrating them to ensure accurate readings.
  • Data collection: We position the calibrated temperature sensors or data loggers at predetermined locations within the equipment. The sensors capture temperature variations over time while the data loggers record temperatures at specified levels.
  • Data analysis: Our professional team analyzes the collected data and determines the key metrics to assess temperature distribution and uniformity in your equipment. The parameters include -Minimum, Maximum, and Average Temperature for each location along with Mean Kinetic Temperature. This can help you draw conclusions about temperature variations. Sometimes the data demonstrates that your refrigerator or any other devices require temperature adjustments. In such a case, you can make the adjustment and undergo the mapping process.
  • Detailed documentation: Our team compiles all the findings into a comprehensive temperature mapping report. It holds a graphical representation of temperature distribution, calibration certificates, statistical analysis, and other observations in one document. Based on the analytical report, you can implement corrective actions if required. Later on, you can perform temperature mapping to ensure compliance with the recent improvements.

More About Temperature Mapping for Any Facility or Warehouse!

In a warehouse, it’s essential to maintain a 15°C – 25°C temperature range and a 50% to 60% RH Humidity range as per WHO standards. To ensure that every corner of the warehouse captures this range, our team conducts temperature mapping for 7 to 14 days. The data loggers record this data once every 5 minutes and develop a report that features a complete graph of the temperature and humidity distribution.
In addition, our team conducts temperature mapping studies during the loaded condition, especially if it’s an existing warehouse. However, for a new warehouse, we conduct the study when it’s completely empty. Therefore, it depends upon the situation in which we undergo the mapping study and measure the real-time changes.
When it comes to temperature mapping of a warehouse or a facility, we carry on the study for at least two or three climatic conditions based on the country type. In case your country experiences the highest temperature of 40 Deg C and the lowest temperature of -10 Deg C, we conduct tests under three climatic conditions.
After capturing the temperature variations and generating a complete report, we assist you to identify the hot and cold points of your warehouse. It helps install continuous monitoring systems and ensure product quality and compliance.
