A competition prize worth £269, a NEW product launch, and More! Find out what Testo has on offer at the HVAC & Refrigeration Show!

Testo have led the ‘smart’ revolution in giving HVAC/R service engineers a wide range of test instruments with Bluetooth connectivity to smartphones or tablet devices, enabling them to work smarter and to gain benefits such as on-site reporting and improved documentation of test results.

Now you have the chance to win a free testo 550 digital manifold worth £269 at the HVAC/R show just by heading over to the Testo stand B39 and putting your details into the draw – the winner will be announced just after the show closes on the 25th January.

The Testo 550 is a 2-port manifold allowing the engineer to get fast and accurate measurements of highside and lowside pressures as well as condensing and evaporation temperatures. The other added bonus of moving to digital manifolds is that the user also gets real time display of superheat and subcooling values as well.

An often overlooked additional benefit of Testo digital manifold’s is that they allow the user to easily update the device for new refrigerants that are introduced via a smartphone or tablet and the Bluetooth app. Currently the testo 550 supports over 60 different refrigerants. Also, the manifold incorporates a temperature compensated leak test function that allows engineers to fully test a system and shows the start/end system pressure and the time of the test.

The free App to support the manifolds also allows on-site documentation of test results with the ability to provide clear and concise reports for clients.

Introducing the NEW testo 440

At the HVAC & Refrigeration show we will be launching a new air velocity & IAQ measuring instrument to the public. The testo 440 combines a compact handheld measuring instrument with user-friendly measurement menus and wide selection of wireless probes – for the versatile and convenient measurement of all air conditioning, ventilation, and indoor air quality parameters.

We will have the new testo 440 and a selection of probes on display at the show. Visit our stand B39 to get hands on with the new product and find out more about its functions and applications.

Smart Probes Refrigeration Set

From the award winning Testo ‘Smart Probes’ range comes the ‘Refrigeration Set’ which effectively turns your smartphone into a digital refrigeration manifold, with clear display of both highside/lowside pressure and temperatures as well as direct readings of superheat and subcooling values – all without requiring any use of traditional temperature/pressure lookup tables, and giving faster, more accurate measurements of a refrigeration systems performance.

 

Digital Manifolds

For users who prefer a more traditional ‘digital’ manifold type product the testo 550 and testo 557 units provide either a 2-port (testo 550) or 4-port (testo 557) option. Again, these products have Bluetooth communication to the free to download ‘Refrigeration App’ and this allows engineers to view the measurements either directly on the manifold, or remotely up to 10m away on their smartphone or tablet.

With many existing refrigerants having major increases in costs it is more important than ever to make sure that systems are fully pressure tight before filling to ensure no loss.  A key function with the Testo digital manifolds is the ability to perform a temperature compensated tightness test following any work to repair a leak to a system, and this is one area where traditional ‘analogue’ gauge sets can often perform poorly.

Finally, with all the changes going on as part of the drive to refrigerants with lower GWP it is essential that engineers can update any manifolds to suit. Again, with traditional analogue type units this normally means extra cost in purchasing new gauges, however with the Testo digital manifolds any update to the refrigerants tables available is simply done via the Bluetooth connection to the free ‘Refrigeration App, ensuring that refrigeration and AC engineers are always in touch with technology changes.

How to ensure pharmaceuticals are kept in the right conditions during production

Do you want to avoid a WARNING LETTER under all circumstances? And therefore substantial consequential commercial losses or high compensation claims as well? With testo Saveris you are on the safe side: meaning you have a reliable, proven and audit-safe solution – specially for climate monitoring in a GMP-regulated environment.

 

Expertise you can count on.

For 60 years Testo have produced high-precision, reliable measuring instruments and solutions for measurement data management. With comprehensive services in the area of measuring technology, which are perfectly customised to your individual requirements.

 

 

Reliability you can depend on.

Monitoring and documentation of quality parameters is mandatory when manufacturing and storing pharmaceutical products. Testo Saveris records and documents these, triggering a central alarm when there is a violation of the defined limit values.

 

Service which doesn’t let you down.

Once a testo Saveris system is implemented, our service doesn’t stop there: we also support you both before and after purchase with a wide range of services.

We would be happy to answer any questions you may have – get in touch with us!

Or for more information on climate monitoring you can now easily download an interesting trade article on the topic of “Automated climate monitoring in a validated environment”. It includes important information on the following:

  • Goals of climate monitoring
  • Current measurement technologies
  • The validated environment
  • Combine flexibility and security

Download testo’s Free ‘GxP dictionary’ for the most important definitions on GxP and Quality Assurance

As you know, the demands placed on products and Quality Assurance in a GMP-regulated environment are extremely high and characterised by the strict stipulations laid down by national and international regulations and legislation. In addition to this, other forms of GxP have developed, (e.g. GDP = Good Distribution Practice), which have an effect on adjacent sectors such as Medical Devices and Life Sciences.

A multitude of specific terms and abbreviations have thus developed in the context of “GMP compliance”. Our current GxP dictionary explains the most important terminology surrounding the topics of GxP, qualification, validation and Quality Assurance. You can download this compact reference work to support your day-to-day work here free of charge.
