Process Measurement Company (PMC) was recently approached by a medical device manufacturer to conduct an oven mapping study. A report of these results is requested on an annual basis to prove compliance with government and company policy. The customer had certain temperature, tolerance, and timing requirements. To accomplish the oven mapping study, PMC used MadgeTech’s Titan S8 portable data acquisition logger.
The company needed their clean process benchtop oven to be validated at a temperature of 150 °C with a tolerance of +/- 1.5 °C with readings required every 30 seconds over an hour. This type of oven is typically used for packaging processes, sterilization, and drying.
To efficiently perform the oven mapping, PMC used MadgeTech’s Titan S8 portable data acquisition logger. Equipped with eight channel inputs, out technician placed a Type K thermocouple at the top and bottom of each corner of the oven. With the Titan S8, the technician was able to map the eight points while viewing the results in real-time, graph, and tabular view.
Over the course of the study, 976 readings were collected, downloaded onto a USB and uploaded into a Microsoft Excel file for analysis. Thanks to MadgeTech’s Titan S8, results showed that all eight points of the oven were operating properly at or slightly above 150 °C and Process Measurement was able to issue a certificate of conformance.
