Mocon: Oxygen permeation test system
See it at Interpack, Hall 5, Stand J03! Suitable for food, pharmaceutical, medical device, and material producers who need to test packaging structures for oxygen permeation, the new fully-automated and user-friendly OX-TRAN Model 2/22 H oxygen permeation test system from Mocon uses advanced technology and design enhancements to significantly reduce test times depending on barrier quality.
In addition, the repeatability specification has been improved 2.5 times over the company’s OX-TRAN Model 2/21 H.
Automation features include relative humidity, temperature, pressure, flow, and testing, which are simply set via the integrated and intuitive touch screen. Remote viewing and control from anywhere in the world is possible with the connectivity options. When testing film with unknown characteristics, the auto test feature determines the optimal parameters and conducts the test to completion. Sequential testing allows for a film to be tested at multiple temperature/relative humidity conditions with no operator involvement.
The OX-TRAN Model 2/22 H is designed to operate at a lower cost of ownership by eliminating several common maintenance costs. The install wizard allows for step-by-step user installation and the gas saver feature automatically reduces gas consumption when the system is idle. In addition, many safety features have been added to increase component lifetime.
