Food and Tobacco

A food industry without measurement technology is inconceivable. The measurement of physical parameters such as temperature and relative humidity is essential, both in the receiving inspection of incoming goods, storage, drying and baking processes as well as in the transport of sensitive wares.

Water activity also plays an extremely important role in determining product quality.



The process of maturation of the wine bottles and barrels requires carefully protected climatic conditions.


The production of bakery products requires processing steps in which humidity and temperature play an important role.


Temperature and humidity are important parameters both in natural drying and in the industrial production of dried meat.


For a cheese to develop its desired taste, it must be stored at the right temperature and right relative air humidity.


Climate monitoring is vital in the production of pasta.


Monitoring climatic conditions is important in the manufacturing process of cigarettes or cigars.
