The importance of being sanitized and safe
What THERMOLABEL is
Thermolabel is an approved test method used all over the world in situations requiring a particular level of hygiene and safety.
The Thermolabel hygiene test is a reliable and irreversible method, used as an indicator of the washing temperature to guarantee the maximum hygiene into the warewasher – according to HACCP directives. The Thermolabel hygiene test is validate when the washing temperature reaches 71°C / 159.8°F for a certain time (10-15 seconds).
How THERMOLABEL works
Thermolabel is a temperature sensitive element that produces a non-reversible color change at the rated temperature. This provides a clear indication that the tested flatware has reached the minimum temperature expected.
The temperature element is protected with a clear plastic overlay, granting high protection and durability.
The operator just need to stick the Thermolabel on the item to be washed, put it into the dishwasher and run a washing cycle.
At the end of the cycle the operator will remove the rack with the washed item out of the warewasher and evaluate if the Thermolabel test has been passed (that is when the label changes color from white to dark grey).
