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
