With the testo 270, Testo AG launches the new generation of their proven cooking oil tester testo 270 onto the market. With it, the measurement technology specialist from the Black Forest enables the quality of cooking oil to be determined even faster. This ensures the quality of deep-fried foods, and reduces expenditure for cooking oil by up to 20 %.
The cooking oil tester testo 270 measures the Total Polar Material (TPM) content in the cooking oil, which is a sure indicator of its quality. This is the reason why the polar materials may not exceed a certain limit, depending on the country. Cooking oil develops its best potential between 14 and 20 % TPM. If the oil is too old, it shows an increased TPM value, and deep-fried goods of inferior quality are produced. It can furthermore contain substances which present a risk to health. Regular measurement with the testo 270 prevents this. The use of the measuring instrument also prevents the wastage of cooking oil due to too early replacement. It reduces cooking oil consumption by up to 20 %.
Safety in daily use
The strength of the probe shaft has been considerably improved over the previous model. In addition to this, the new cooking oil tester has more robust connections between the housing, the probe shaft and the sensor. Since the measuring instrument fulfils the protection class IP65 even without an additional protective case, cleaning it under running water is no problem – ideal for use in quick-service restaurants.
However the most obvious feature of the new testo 270 is its ergonomic design. This has the advantage that the user is no longer directly exposed to the the heat from the deep-fryer when taking the measurement, allowing him to work more safely.
Even more intuitive thanks to traffic light system
The measuring instrument's 86% larger display considerably simplifies the reading of temperature and TPM values. The unmistakeable alarm provided by multi-colour backlighting makes it even easier to evaluate the quality of the cooking oil: Green means that the TPM content is below the set limit value, orange is close to it, and when the display lights up red, the limit value has been exceeded.
Significantly reduces costs
Extensive practical tests by Testo engineers have demonstrated that regular measurement with the testo 270 reduces the consumption of cooking oil by up tp 20 %. With a consumption of 1,000 litres per year and assuming a price of 0.70 € per litre, this allows 1,680 € to be saved annually.
