OxySense, Inc., the leading supplier of optical oxygen measurement systems to the packaging industries announced a new product that will further enhance the performance of its industry leading optical oxygen permeation system, OxyPerm.
Film permeation testing is one of the key activities in most packaging labs. It is a must for flex pack design and development, and a critical quality control check for film producers, converters and packers. But all too often permeation systems, whether they be the legacy steady state or the new OxyPerm (dynamic accumulation) methodology, can produce confusing and often inconsistent results.
With the steady state systems, maintenance and calibration issues can be the route cause; but with the OxyPerm System, which is virtual maintenance free and does not need calibration, one need to look elsewhere for an explanation.
We believe that a prime contributor to this inconsistency, for both solid state and dynamic accumulation system can be traced to excessive flushing gas flow rates that cause inconsistent relative pressure inside the permeation chamber, resulting in a distortion of the test film. This distortion can cause a change in the chamber volumes, which can lead to inconsistent results.
The OxyPerm Gas Flow Meter is a simple, but elegant solution to excessive gas flow rates. With it, you can precisely monitor and control the flushing gas flow rates and thus avoid the issues caused by inconsistent chamber pressures.
Easy to use and maintenance free, the OxyPerm Gas Flow Meter is the perfect partner for the OxyPerm System.
