Temperature monitoring (TEMO)

We have an established track record, gained over more than a decade of conducting automated temperature monitoring services for international clients, across a wide range of commodities (including biomass, feed and food). This expertise helps in understanding temperature behavior and in suggestin preventive actions for warehouses/cargo owners.

Strengths of this service

We offer a unique perspective to ensure you receive sustainable added value by combining inspection and logistics expertise with insight obtained from continuous coordination between parties involved throughout all stages of the value chain.

  • We offer a cost-effective solution to generate continuous temperature monitoring, allowing for trend analysis

  • The Peterson Temperature Monitoring (TEMO) system can provide biomass and feed temperature monitoring and real-time insight into the behavior of temperature within a stockpile

Temperature monitoring (TEMO)

Monitoring self-heating in stockpiles and analyzing the trends in temperature are necessities, yet from a cost perspective, frequent manual measurements are too expensive and produce only a snapshot rather than providing constant observation and the full picture.

The characteristics of biomass create a potential safety risk for persons entering storage facilities due to the possibility that gases such as carbon monoxide (CO), carbon dioxide (CO2), molecular hydrogen (H2) and methane (CH4) are present. Because of the presence of the gases, personnel entering these warehouses may suffer serious consequences and therefore biomass temperature monitoring is essential.

The portable Peterson TEMO system can be used for various applications and is a wireless, easy-to-use system which automates the process of temperature monitoring in (floating) storage facilities. In addition to record keeping and reporting, this service sends automatic alerts when set parameters are exceeded.

The TEMO system:

  • Is easy-to-use, and non-disruptive with no need for expensive hardwired infrastructure
  • Allows global access to information when and where you need it
  • Gives 24/7 temperature monitoring and trend analysis
  • Gives real-time alarms and alerts allowing you to take preventive action, run reports, and keep log files for your records and compliance
  • Provides automated periodic (weekly, monthly or yearly) reports per sensor (graph, statistic) and gas measuring on request
  • Uses probes of various lengths so by installing multiple probes gridwise an entire parcel can be covered/monitored.
