    Thermometers, pH meters and Data Loggers are integral devices that are crucial to the food industry, every device sold here at Start Food Tech from the simple and basic probe thermometers to the high-tech infrared Laser Thermometers, the delicate pH probes to the ever lasting Data Loggers capable of storing data for months or even years at a time, are carefully calibrated before they are dispatched from our warehouse to customers ranging from the family owned butcher up the street to the enormous meat processing plants that deal with all kinds of meat such as pork, lamb, and poultry just to name a few.

    Our thermometers come in two types: probe thermometers and Infrared Laser Thermometers. The probe thermometers are a simple design composed of a stainless steel probe connected to an LCD display and can be set to read in Celsius or Fahrenheit. The Infrared Laser Thermometers are a diverse and easy to operate instrument with adjustable Emissivity settings and capable of taking instant measurements of temperature on any surface be it solid of liquid.

    pH Meters provide quick and accurate measurements of pH levers of any liquid the food industry has to offer, we also offer pH buffer solutions used for the recalibration of your pH Meter device. Data Loggers are designed with the purpose of data storage in mind, capable of storing thousands of temperature readings within its internal memory, alongside a port for additional memory. Housing an internal temperature sensor our Data Loggers are also compatible with a number of probes sold here at Start Food Tech allowing for the accurate acquisition of both ambient room temperature and temperatures logged by the probe sensor.
