Mocon Inc., an international provider of instruments and services for testing, measuring and analyzing invisible gases, has improved the ability to measure oxygen transmission rates (OTR).
Mocon’s new OX-TRAN Model 2/22 L has been specifically engineered to accurately and quickly measure OTR for wide range of high-barrier materials and packages. It is ideally suited for food, pharmaceutical, medical device, film converters and resin producers who want to push the shelf life envelope by reducing oxygen permeation of packages.
With Mocon’s advanced technology and design enhancements, test times are reduced significantly depending on barrier levels. In addition, the repeatability specification has been improved 2.5 times over the industry-standard OX-TRAN Model 2/21 L.
The OX-TRAN Model 2/22 L is designed to operate at a lower cost of ownership by eliminating several common maintenance expenses. The install wizard allows for step-by-step user installation and the gas-saver feature automatically reduces consumption when the system is idle. In addition, many safety features have been added to increase component lifetime.
