THAME, ENGLAND, July 23, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Systech Illinois are highly skilled in the manufacturing of gas analysis equipment and a leading provider of permeation analysers. They provide oxygen analysers, gas analysers and moisture analysers to the process, packaging and food and pharmaceutical industries worldwide.
Systech Illinois continue to demonstrate their commitment to customer service, with the recent update of their PermMate Video.
The PermMate utilises a patented method of oxygen permeation analysis of sealed packages. The permeability and the barrier qualities of a foil changes when it is shaped into a finished package and as a result the shelf life of the food products can be affected. Therefore, it is important that the package is tested at this stage.
This oxygen permeation analyser is designed to measure the oxygen ingress of the package and to calculate the oxygen transmission rate. It can test numerous packages simultaneously. In addition, it can determine volume, headspace O2% measurements and nitrogen flushing of packages. Knowing the volume of the finished package can be a valuable tool in monitoring the total gas consumption during production and can provide documentation of volume for transportation requirements. Also, the exact impact on the permeability can be established resulting in better knowledge about the shelf life of the product. Sample extraction can be as low as 3.5ml for each measurement.
This instrument can also test packages in a wide variety of temperature/relative humidity conditions making it an important tool for all types of packaging research and development.
The updated PermMate video details the 7 steps it takes to complete the testing and can be viewed on Systech Illinois's website or on YouTube.
