PERMATRAN-W® Model 3/34

 

The PERMATRAN W 3/34 water vapor permeation instrument is designed specifically to increase your lab’s efficiency, streamline your operations, and improve throughput. Your operators will now spend less time setting up and monitoring permeation tests, allowing them to achieve more in less time.

Less skills are required as a new user interface and increased automation has simplified testing, which reduces the costs associated with training new staff members or transitioning responsibilities within the company. Starting a new test can be as simple as the press of a single button in certain applications. Operators are able to pre-program a range of tests and different conditions and run them continuously without operator intervention.

Advanced technology has enabled the PERMATRAN-W 3/34 to automatically assign the ideal calibration mid-test based on trending data, instead of requiring that the operator predicts the outcome before they start the test. This means that a test will never have to be rerun due to a mistaken calibration choice.

Easier to use:

  • Fully automated temperature and humidity controls
  • Automatic calibration selection
  • Simplified sample preparation
  • Touch screen interface

Increased productivity:

  • Elimination of individual zero
  • Save on labour hours with less in-test monitoring
  • Remote access and control

More throughput:

  • Less re-tests as a result of incorrect calibration

PERMATRAN-W® Model 700

 

The PERMATRAN-W® Model 700 is part of Mocon’s modern permeation instrument family, used for Water Vapor Transmission Rate (WVTR) testing, including high-quality technology that sets a new standard for accuracy, throughput, and ease of use.

The simple design is ideal for quality control as well as research and development. The OX-TRAN Model 702 includes a convenient QuickStart feature which enables an operator to begin testing within moments. The model also includes standard security features to protect critical test setups and control multiple-user situations.

The Model 702 complies with:

  • ASTM D-3985
  • F-1927
  • F-1307

It is certified traceable to NIST and is CFR21 Part 11 compliant. These, as well as optional validation services, certification services, service contracts and use of the highest quality elements, ensure that all regulatory requirements will be met and that the results on which decisions are made will be accurate.

Unique Cell Design

The advanced pneumatic push-button test cells are designed to accommodate standard 50 cm2 samples. These samples can be easily prepared as the cell structures are removable and include an improved surface finish with Nichrome plating for durability. The seven test cells are independently controlled, which makes it possible to run three sets of duplicate samples while allowing for one user-provided reference material.

PERMATRAN-W® Model 3/61

 

The Permatran-W® Model 3/61 is the most recent addition to permeation test systems for measuring water vapor transmission rates of barrier films and packages. This model was designed to provide fast, accurate answers for all of your packaging needs. Ideal systems for production and QC/QA testing applications. This system incorporates the latest in high-sensitivity sensor design and features 6 test cells for flexibility and speed. Includes precise RH and temperature measurement and control, user selectable sensitivity, package testing capabilities and N.I.S.T. (National Institute of Standard and Technology) traceable calibration films.

 

User-friendly, quality driven operation:

  • Windows® 2000 operating system
  • User selectable sensitivity
  • Precise RH & temperature measurement and control
  • No extrapolations or accumulation necessary
  • Automatic flow compensation
  • NIST traceable calibration films

Also available:

  • Optional package testing capability on all test cells
  • Software for early prediction of permeation values
  • Software for P, S, D calculation
  • MOCON service and support

PERMATRAN-W® Model 398 Water Vapor Transmission Rate Test System

 

The new and improved, user-friendly, PERMATRAN-W Model 398 is the latest water vapor transmission rate system from a range of quality systems available from MOCON, the world leader in permeation technology.

This simple, low maintenance system conforms to the new ASTM Standard E-398 and produces the accurate and reliable data the industry has come to expect only from MOCON.

This low-cost model has been designed for both medium and high barriers which allow the user to test two films individually. Each test cell is equipped with its own sensor, assuring greater throughput with results that are accurate. Because the Model 398 produces precise relative humidity testing, two films may be tested simultaneously at two different RH conditions.

The new WinPerm™, Windows® based software, is simple and intuitive. Automated temperature and relative humidity control, as well as automatically determined stability, all but eliminate operator error.

 

PERMATRAN-C ® 4/41

Carbon Dioxide Permeation Rate Measurement Systems for Films and Packages

 

The PERMATRAN-C® Model 4/41 is a carbon dioxide (CO2) transmission rate test system used to assess barrier films and package materials. It is ideally suited for predicting product shelf-life or checking the quality of incoming and outgoing packaging materials. These results aid in structure development and prevent costly over packaging.

This model performs tests directly at “real world” temperature and CO2 levels. The system’s transmission rate software can control up to 20 test cells in a system. The software will also reduce the possibility of errors with its ability to automatically determine stability and compensate for any flow changes. Pre-programmed test formats, computer, and menu-driven screens make it easy to generate and interpret data test data.

Like all MOCON permeation test systems, the PERMATRAN-C® Model 4/41 is interchangeable. A flexible, dual-film, test-cell configuration and optional package environmental chamber allow for the testing of flat films and finished packages.

 

PERMATRAN-W® Model 1/50

 

MOCON’s PERMATRAN-W Model 1/50 is a low-cost water vapour transmission rate (WVTR) analyser which gives companies who were previously unable to justify the expenditure, the ability to perform in-house permeation with an affordable, robust quality control instrument. An ideal entry level WVTR analyser for food beverage, pharmaceutical, building material and electronic applications.

This WVTR analyser is between 30 and 70 percent less expensive than most other units available today.

The system is a single-cell, stand-alone instrument, designed to test medium-to-low barrier film within the range of 0.1-1000 gm/m2day and less the 65 mil thick.

Another compliment to the feature-rich technology is that the analyser is ‘fault tolerant’, making it easy-to-operate with minimal training. In addition, its rugged construction enables it to withstand the production floor environment without the chance of it being damaged.

 

Temperature and relative humidity (RH) are two important factors that have an impact on permeation. The PERMATRAN-W Model 1/50 has been designed to quickly and automatically generate relative humidity—a feature which is typically not even found on even more expensive units.

Unlike most other permeation instruments, the PERMATRAN-W Model 1/50 has built in software. The unit has a small footprint and does not require an additional computer. The operator uses a keypad to input the test parameters (which are displayed on an easy-to-read). Parameters can be saved in a Quick Start menu allowing for a fast startup when the material is tested again at a later stage.

Other features include:
Automatic controls for relative humidity, temperature, flow etc
Horizontal test cell
Pneumatic clamp
Printer – standard
Optional add-on PermNet software from MOCON
