Unilever experience the Tetso Saveris


Testo | Unilever

Having been established way back in 1888 and currently embracing some 400 brands Unilever is truly a household name and one of the greatest trading companies in the world. As such of course, it sets the highest standards for equipment suppliers to the superb Research and Development laboratory at the famous Port Sunlight complex near Liverpool, and a tangible new example, is the acquisition of the Saveris computerised temperature and humidity monitoring system, from the measurement technology specialist Testo. This vital concept allows for automatic radio frequency probes to be placed at any point and on any equipment throughout the premises and requiring a simple set up via a Saveris base unit and software which is complemented by a converter for linking via the Ethernet to a server system. This offers the user flexible communication options, even over long distances.

The responsible Scientist within the High Throughput department Mark Auty, is delighted to set the scene. “We had previously relied on rather limited data logging systems but having conceived the need for something better we carried out literally a very thorough worldwide search for the optimum solution and the Testo remedy was quickly apparent. We have of course highly varied situations here, whether for example simply to assess fridges, freezers and ovens right through to complex robotic technology and what we would describe as imaginative conceptual projects.

The probes can be simply placed on to a wall or perched on the unit itself and give us constant read-out backed by alarm systems which are very necessary when left overnight or during a weekend, and we also have the means to retrace data going back many months if need be. I particularly like the fact that they are very neat and discreet and just quietly blend in to their surroundings which in operating range terms can comfortably be anyway within our sphere. Coupled with the comparatively easy software and good value for money the Testo package has proved to be an excellent investment and I would have no problem recommending it to a third party”.

For the technical record the actual products supplied by Testo to Unilever consist of a Saveris base unit which communicates to the measurement probes via Ethernet connection and can save 40,000 readings per channel independent of the PC; a converter for changing a probe signal in to an Ethernet signal; three TD3 two-channel radio probes and six HD3 humidity radio probes all incorporating display screens and long life batteries.
