Food manufacturing requires essential processes and tools to safely and securely manage food production. Refrigeration is a fundamental operation to successfully conserve and maintain products.
Industrial food storage requires organised and efficient management, this is due to vast amounts of products being stored. Without sufficient management, this can lead to product loss and inaccuracies recording the amount of produce and where it is located, this could lead to errors in the supply chain that could cause issues with stores receiving an incorrect amount of stock.
Industrial cold storage refrigeration often has corporate customers such as nationwide supermarkets and catering establishments. These businesses often require daily deliveries of stock. This means constant pressure and refrigeration facilities are often active 24 hours a day.
Workers in refrigerated facilities are a crucial element in inventory control. To effectively manage the stock, they must be working in and around the facility to maintain control and organisation. Typically, there is a team that is employed to get goods ready for delivery. This job involves safely unloading items, packing them carefully, and collecting specific orders to be sent out to people.
Another key element of health and safety is ensuring temperature control. This means workers must regularly check the temperature is below a certain level. Once more, keeping the area cold means workers must be equipped by providing suitable protective clothing, heated rest facilities, and task rotation.
To ensure that workers spend minimum time in the refrigerated facility it’s imperative they have the best tools for optimal efficiency and productivity. It’s also important for management to invest in the appropriate tools that will provide full functionality in an industrial freezer or refrigerator.
Industrial refrigeration rugged mobile solution the RT40
Our ultimate solution for industrial refrigeration is the RT40 mobile computing solution. Featuring a cold resistance feature and anti-condensation screen. The screen and the scanning window of the cold chain hand-held computer automatically heats to room temperature under a low-temperature situation, even at minus 30°C. Workers in the refrigerated area will be able to work efficiently without the possibility of technical errors using a device not fit for purpose. As well as the regulated temperature, the cold storage handheld device combats harsh environments, thanks to the IP68 rating and 1.8m drop resistance. This is a necessity because workers are consistently operating the device around the facility, where the unit is at risk of being dropped and broken.
Additionally, the RT40 boasts super long-range scanning. The cold storage computer can easily identify barcodes and decode them quickly in a 15 meter- scanning range thanks to professional engine supporting 1D/2D barcodes. Using a barcode scanner is paramount to operating in an industrial cold storage setting. Workers are required to scan items, tracking the products to maintain accuracy and organisation.
Another beneficial attribute is the hot-swappable battery. This can be replaced without turning the device off. This reduces time delays which could occur turning the device on again and preventing potential loss of data. The 5200 mAh large-capacity battery supports quick charge, fully charged in less than 3h. The swappable battery enables users to operate the device 24 hours a day.
The 13MP camera allows users to photograph and record any incidents that could occur. Powered by Android 10 and equipped with an Octa-core CPU for superior control and functionality.
