Our standard high temperature ascending labels and freeze technology have an irreversible color change, meaning that once they change in color, they don’t change back. This gives you a permanent record of temperature breach. We do offer freeze technology that can be reset, along with liquid crystal solutions that are continually indicating temperature.
The performance of the color changing indicators is verified by subjecting the products to NIST calibrated heating and/or cooling apparatuses that step the production units through ramped temperature changes that are in fractions of a degree. The tested production units are closely monitored by qualified lab technicians during the heating and/or cooling phase to ensure that the indicators trigger within the specified accuracy tolerance. ATI is proud to be ISO 9001:2015 certified. This means that our Quality management system is certified to an international standard to help ensure the integrity and quality of our products. ATI operates as an FDA registered facility.
Liquid crystal thermometers are made using cholesteric liquid crystals that have the unique ability to reflect a single color of light at specific temperatures. The liquid crystals are carefully formulated to change color at the correct temperature.
High temperature irreversible indicators utilize safe, high purity chemical compounds that have accurate melt points. The compounds are combined with a red dye and applied to a porous substrate. When exposed to temperature above their response temperature, the compound melts, migrates to the front of the label, revealing a red color.
FCP products contain a technology which changes from solution to rigid gel within a 1°C range. Density differences of the gel are used to create a change from green to red when the FCP is chilled below its response temperature.
BlindSpotz is a thermochromic ink that will permanently change from transparent to colored when chilled below its response temperature.
ViziRev is a resettable ascending indicator containing a microencapsulated phase change material that appears transparent at room temperature and turns white when chilled. The indicator must be chilled about 8-10 degrees below its response temperature to turn white. When the indictor is warmed it will change from white (typically in the image of a snowflake) to transparent at its indicated response temperature.
Our color changing indicators vary in temperature accuracy range. Our high temperature ascending labels tracking 25°C (77°F) to 71°C (160°F) have an accuracy of ±1°C. From 80°C (176°F) to 215°C (420°F) the indicator accuracies start at ±2°C and increase to ±3°C on the high end of the response temperature range. Our FCP products (tracking 15°C to -2°C) have a ±2°C accuracy rating, but ±1°C is also available. Our Blindspotz technology (tracking -4°C to 4°C) has a color change within 2°C. Our ViziRev technology has a ±1°C accuracy rating. With the ability for custom products, we can work through our R&D process to dial these ranges in for critical applications.
Endicate has the ability to give a 6-digit sequence of numbers if an alarm has been triggered. These 6 digits can be entered into an ATI web to display the exact time and date of alarm excursion.
Our current Endicate offering is a single-use device.
Endicate offers an instant, cumulative and continuous alarm option. Selecting an instant trigger type shows the first point at which a temperature breach has occurred. A cumulative trigger type adds the number of minutes a temperature breach has occurred until your time has been reached.
A continuous trigger shows when a temperature breach has occurred for a constant amount of time. ATI has put together an in-depth document to explain these alarm settings. Contact us today to learn more!
Endicate offers a 1-year minimum run-life when temperature is maintained between -20°C and 70°C. Endicate has a 3 year shelf life – extreme temperatures can affect this run life.
The Endicate device is extremely accurate with ±0.5°C across the entire temperature range.
ATI offers customization throughout their product line. The Endicate label can include your brand standards and be completely personalized for your needs. Minimums may apply.
All temperature data can be securely stored in the ATI DataNow cloud. This removes the need for manually tracking temperature and keeping paper logs for audit requests. It also gives you the ability to view temperature history anytime, anywhere.
The full line of LOG-IC 360 data loggers allow you to hold important temperature records in a cloud database. You can push data to the cloud using our LOG-IC 360 Apps or by going to downloads.americanthermal.com and selecting ATI DataNow. While in the portal, you will be able to sort, analyze and download your data in a number of different formats.
No, only the probe is designed for this environment. The actual monitor will not provide acceptable performance if the battery and/or other components are exposed to temperatures below –20°C.
Yes, you can personally program your LOG-IC 360 data loggers through our LOG-IC Management Software or the LOG-IC apps. We are also happy to program the loggers with your specifications.
All variations of the LOG-IC 360 data loggers are extremely accurate. Both NFC and USB have an accuracy of ±0.5°C. We offer the same accuracy for Bluetooth but also offer a premium option with ±0.25°C accuracy reading.
