MNA-TB-GB

The glass bead filled vial will buffer any momentary fluctuations in temperatures that may caused by standard operations such as defrost cycles, opening of doors, and fans circulating air. The 3mm glass beads will slow the response time of the temperature sensor allowing more accurate temperature data to be captured and prevent false alerts from being sent. This is a highly recommended accessory for every cold storage application. For use with any Monnit wireless temperature sensor with probe.

Product Description

The glass bead filled vial will buffer any momentary fluctuations in temperatures that may caused by standard operations such as defrost cycles, opening of doors, and fans circulating air. The 3mm glass beads will slow the response time of the temperature sensor allowing more accurate temperature data to be captured and prevent false alerts from being sent. This is a highly recommended accessory for every cold storage application. For use with any Monnit wireless temperature sensor with probe.


Notes: 

In testing 2 similarly calibrated temperature probes in a cooler where the door was left open for 5 minutes then closed for 15 minutes and repeated, the following observations were made.


Monnit Temperature Buffer Comparison Test

Impulse Duration

Air Temp Rise
(degrees F)
Air Response
(degrees per minute)
Vial Temp Rise
(degrees F)
Vial Response Time
(degrees per minute)
5.31 15.1 2.84 8.7 1.64
5.65 15.5 2.74 8.1 1.43
7.33 16.4 2.24 8.6 1.17
5.14 14.3 2.78 7.1 1.38
6.46 13.2 2.04 6.7 1.04
6.02 13.3 2.21 6.5 1.08

AVERAGE RATES:
No Temperature Buffer – 2.45 degrees F per minute rise
With Temperature Buffer – 1.29 degrees F per minute rise

Conclusion: The temperature buffer causes a 52% decrease in temperature response helping to eliminate false alerts.
