The Escort Cool down Temperature Recorder was developed to assist organisations in complying with regulations set by the United States Federal Food and Drug Administration regarding the cooling process of processed food. The FDA state that once food has cooled to temperatures below +60 °C, it must be cooled down to below + 5°C within 6 hours.

The Cool Down logger uses an external sensor to monitor the cooling of processed food. The logger is triggered by the temperature falling below +60 °C, and the logger records the time and date of this event. The cool down process is then monitored by taking three temperature readings: One after 2 hours when the food must have cooled to temperatures below +21 °C, the second after 4 hours and the third reading after 6 hours, when temperature should be below + 5°C.

At the end of this process, the Cool Down logger displays a PASS or FAIL message depending on whether the temperature restrictions have been achieved in the specified time frame. The unit does not require to be downloaded to a PC, which is useful for areas which do not have easy access to a PC (e.g. kitchens).
