The STRATOS O2/CO2 is a bench-mounted gas analyser with a blocked circuit detector. Equipped with a large touchscreen, its aesthetic appeal and the simplicity of its user interface are huge benefits for users. This measurement device has a resolution of 0.01% for O2, which is a highly competitive level of performance. The STRATOS O2/CO2 has everything required for complete traceability. This ABISS appliance is reliable, durable and highly versatile for inspecting the quality of your modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) or other inerting.

Advantages:

  • Resolution O2: 0.01%
  • Intuitive technologySTRATOS O2/CO2
  • Blocked circuit detection
  • Fully dematerialised traceability thanks to a universal spreadsheet
  • 7 days a week remote maintenance
  • Remote connection
  • Automatic measurement triggering

 

Expert advice:

  • Air adjustment requires the full attention and skill of a supervisor, given the various environmental variables.
  • In the interest of protecting your device, we would advise you to regularly replace the filters in order to avoid the product flowing back into the device.
  • The flow control lets you ensure that there are no blockages with the filter of the needle, ensuring accurate measurement.
  • We would recommend optimising the measurement speed depending on the target you wish to reach.
  • We would advise you to regularly save the data you have collected and to secure any power supplies.
  • Safety: for user protection, we would advise using the sheath incorporated into the appliance.

The CF800-XS Precision Friction Tester determines Static and Kinetic Friction of packaging materials to ASTM, BS, ISO and TAPPI standards.

Accuracy and versatility in testing is vital, and the CF800-XS Precision Friction Tester provides the technology and range of options to deliver for your specific needs. An intelligent controller and touchscreen user interface stores multiple settings for later recall and controls settings to ensure calibrated accuracy to international testing standards.

The successful processing of flexible films or paper and board is largely dependent on the correct coating of ‘SLIP’ additives applied to the material. The successful forming of the material requires easy sliding or flow over formers on the packaging machine where at high-speed acute angles can change the direction of flow to produce a tube or pouch. The application of ink on the film will cause the properties of slip to change, therefore the need to measure and control Coefficient of Friction is paramount.

CF800-XS Precision Friction Tester

 

With features like:

  • 5.7″ touchscreen controller for precise control and measurement of force, distance, and speed
  • Memory recipe function for a quick and accurate recall of settings
  • Vacuum suction across the test bed for fast clamping of test material
  • Optional heated test bed for determination of ‘Hot Slip’ values.

The GreenLight® 910 unit significantly reduces the testing time and labour needed to determine aerobic bacterial counts in meat, poultry, seafood, dairy, produce, etc. Processors and packers get same-day, precise results in a cost-effective manner.

“The GreenLight technology will be appealing to most quality control and laboratory professionals because it simplifies, and therefore cuts time out of, the sample prep phase. Depending on the expected bacterial load, results can be obtained between minutes and eight hours. This is significantly faster than the agar or film plate methods, which typically require 48 hours to achieve a meaningful microbial count. Shorter testing cycles provide packers and processors with the potential of getting their perishable food items to the consumer in less time,” said

Mark Theno, food safety product manager,” MOCON.

Additionally, the cost-effective unit has a small bench-top footprint and an easy-to-use PC software interface with multiple measurement modes. It also has the ability to generate a unique ID for each test making it easy to track specific vials in a busy work environment.

With features like:

  • Used to test the growth and enumeration of microbial samples
  • Single well reader for use with APCheck™ vials 2 mL or 15 mL with an optional adapter
  • Internal incubation of samples
  • Included Windows® softwareGreenLight® 910
  • No moving parts
  • Three testing modes allowing external incubation to boost throughput

OX-TRAN® Model 2/61

 

The OX-TRAN® 2/61 is the new modern addition in permeation test systems for measuring oxygen transmission rates of barrier films and packages. This model is used to detect and measure small amounts of oxygen as it passes through barrier materials such as plastics and composites used in all forms of packaging.

 

Ideal systems for production and QC/QA testing applications. This system incorporates the latest in high-sensitivity sensor design and includes 6 test cells for flexibility and speed. Includes precise RH & temperature measurement and control, user selectable sensitivity, package testing capabilities and N.I.S.T. (National Institute of Standard and Technology) traceable calibration films.
