MOCON: Oxygen transmission rate test instrument

The OX-TRAN Model 2/21 10x oxygen transmission rate test instrument from Mocon accurately and repeatably measures films or packages at precise temperature and relative humidity conditions to 5x10-4 cc/(m2 x day), ten times lower than previous levels.

Film and resin manufacturers, converters and packagers in industries such as electronics (OLED and thin film), solar, vacuum panel, food, pharmaceutical, and medical device will benefit from the system’s greater sensitivity for measuring ultra-oxygen transmission characteristics of films and packages.

A number of improvements have been engineered into the OX-TRAN Model 2/21 10x. The improved proprietary COULOX coulometric sensor counts every oxygen molecule permeating through the film, helping the system comply with ASTM D3985.

Additional improvements incorporated into the system include: improved electronics to reduce system “noise” level; new TruSeal film cell design to eliminate edge-leakage and assure a perfect seal every time; an improved temperature stability.

Each module contains two test cells and is available in master and satellite configuration. The 10x module connects with all other modules in the OX-TRAN 2/21 family of transmission rate test systems.
