Hampshire Controls Corp - News.
May 2021 COVID-19
Since we serve essential laboratory, medical, biotechnology
and food processing customers throughout North America,
Hampshire Controls Corp. continues at 100% capacity for our
sales, engineering, manufacturing, calibration and shipping
groups at our Dover, NH location. We have sufficient inventory
and our supply chains are all operating effectively.
With the current positive impact of U.S. vaccinations and the
rapidly decreasing viral transmission levels in our region, we
see no reason to expect any change in our operational status.
However, we will continue to track this situation and keep you

September 17, 2019 - United Vaccines Chooses Hampshire Controls' Ultra Cold Freezer Temperature Nitrogen Level Detector/Alarm and Air Flow Monitor/Alarm for Vaccine Production and Storage.
Headquartered in Verona, Wisconsin, United Vaccines, Inc. (UV) is known as the leading manufacturer of veterinary vaccines for the fur-bearing animal industry worldwide. Like many manufacturing companies, UV faces a continuing problem; their important biological samples must be properly maintained in ultra-cold, long-term storage with 24/7 monitoring.
Currently, United Vaccines' facility utlilizes Hampshire Controls' Model LD 215 freezer/dewar liquid nitrogen level detector/alarm systems to act as a fail-safe for the mammalian vaccines UV is producing and storing in ultra cold dewars. They also use Hampshire Controls’ 'Air Flow Monitor/Alarm' systems to monitor their laminar flow hoods and biosafety cabinets.
Check out one or both of the links above to view the case study on how we partnered together to provide a solution for their unique needs.
June 6, 2019 - Case Study Conducted with the University of
Colorado's Anschutz Medical Campus Lab by Students from the
University of New Hampshire's Peter T. Paul College of Business
Hampshire Controls worked with students and faculty at the University of New Hampshire's Peter T. Paul College of Business and Economics, to help students write a "real-world" case study involving one of our customers; the University of Colorado's, Anschutz Medical Campus Lab.
Like many of our other medical and laboratory customers, we provided the University of Colorado with systems to help solve their unique cold storage applications issues involving research viruses and other medical-related biological samples stored inside ultra cold temperature freezers and dewars. After an application review, we recommended the use of our Model T Sentry 140 temperature alarm/monitoring systems and this is what they purchased and what we installed.
April 3, 2019 - Unique Integration of Model AMS Remote Ethernet Network Logger and Alarm Notification System with Existing Monitoring Modules.
Flexcon Industries is one of the leading manufacturers of pre-pressurized diaphragm water tanks in the world. They recently purchased a model AMS data logging system to work with existing Hampshire Controls monitor/alarm systems for continuous real-time monitoring and logging of various environmental conditions in their manufacturing processes.
For their application, Flexcon needed to continuously measure
eight temperature locations within their serpentine composite
convection oven while collecting temperature and humidity data
from various other manufacturing machines and related processing
materials. Manufacturing process control is critical.
To make this possible, we
installed an MPS-8 (with eight, type "K"
thermocouple sensors located within specific regions of the
oven) and one, special TT-150HT monitoring module (that collects
temperature and humidity at another location) were integrated
into the Model AMS.
All data is transmitted from the modules to the AMS via Wi-Fi. With complete data collection and logging, they can now ensure ideal manufacturing process conditions exist and they can also analyze their data to continuously improve their processes.
March 5, 2019 - Laboratory Research Integration of Model AMS Remote Ethernet Network Logger/Alarm Notification System with Monitoring Modules.
The laboratory at the Harvard Chan School of Public Health advanced biomedical research lab is currently using an AMS logger/alarm notification system along with six, Hampshire Controls Model TT-200 battery-operated temperature transmitters with type "T" thermocouples.
The TT-200s send data via Wi-Fi to the AMS system for continuous temperature logging and alarm indication of all six of their liquid nitrogen dewars. The LN2 freezers store their biological samples used for their research.
These biological samples must be stored within a safe “cold chain” temperature range in order to ensure that ongoing research can be effectively conducted.
