FOOD PACKAGE TESTING Oxygen is highly degrading gas for various packaging applications. A modified atmosphere packaging depends heavily on package integrity and efficiency of the packaging machine. Oxygen measurements with the Model 602µ can be done using a small probe which has a needle and low volume for detection of oxygen when package size very small. The same unit can be attached to the nitrogen generator system for continuous monitoring of purity of nitrogen produced. With the Model 602µroutine check of packages can scan defective packaging seal or sealing equipment, increasing the efficiency of your packaging line.
COLD ROOM’S AND WAREHOUSE APPLICATIONS The Model 602µ can be used in all food processing and storage applications, including meats, fresh produce, dairy products. The sensor is unaffected by high levels of background gases such as nitrogen or carbon dioxide. The Model 602µ can be applied where mixtures are used and the desired oxygen level is very high (25 to 100%). It has a rugged electrochemical sensor having a continuous life of more than 2 years. It is no response towards hydrocarbons, carbon dioxide typical to the food processing and storage industry.
CONTROLLED/MODIFIED ATMOSHERE OXYGEN MEASUREMENTS In many modified and controlled atmosphere applications nitrogen is used for flushing to remove as much oxygen as possible from the package or the cold rooms/warehouses to extend shelf life of various perishable commodities. Depending on the commodity, maximum oxygen level can vary greatly, from 0.1 % to 5% or even higher.
