The industrial sector includes light and heavy industries in factories and other processing facilities, manufacturing goods and products for the end consumer.
Related industries include:
- Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning (HVAC)
Many of these businesses need to make sure they achieve accurate and precise temperatures during their processes. This may be required as a vital part of the manufacturing process or alternatively, to achieve energy efficiencies throughout their facility.
Regulatory and legislative requirements mean that industrial business are required to monitor and measure temperature at some point in their operation and need to collect data to prove sufficient safe guards are in place in both manufacturing practices and working environments.
Comark can help with temperature and humidity measurement and have a wide range of products that cover manual and automated data collection. Infra-red non-contact thermometers are useful for non-contact temperature measurements.
HVAC systems control the ambient environment through the correct temperature, humidity, air flow and air filtering. Based on the principles of thermodynamics, fluid mechanics and heat transfer, these systems are used commercially in offices, shopping centres and data centres – anywhere that could be affected by thermal comfort.
Laboratories come in many different guises due to the variety of differing requirements of specialists in the various fields of science and engineering.
From Medical or clinical laboratories, wet laboratories used by a chemist or biologist may use or even a physics lab containing vacuum chambers regulations still need to be adhered to and record keeping vital.
The Pharmaceutical industry develops, produces, and markets drugs or pharmaceuticals for use as medications. They are subject to a variety of laws and regulations that govern the patenting, testing, safety and efficacy and marketing of drugs.
Whether it’s a storage facility, transport system or taking on a new range of products within a pharmacy for example it is advisable that a risk analysis is carried out to highlight areas that may be prone to failures in regulations.
Nearly all industrial businesses require temperature and humidity measurements to be recorded during manufacturing processes. Environmental conditions are also monitored to check that buildings are run safely and efficiently, achieving the correct air and thermal comfort levels for their employees.
