Mocon’s new Ox-Tran Model 2/22 L has been specifically engineered to accurately and quickly measure OTR for wide range of high-barrier materials and packages. It is suited for food, pharmaceutical, medical device, film converters and resin producers who want to push the shelf life envelope by reducing oxygen permeation of packages.
With Mocon’s advanced technology and design enhancements, test times are reduced significantly depending on barrier levels. In addition, the repeatability specification has been improved 2.5 times.
The Ox-Tran Model 2/22 L is designed to operate at a lower cost of ownership by eliminating several common maintenance expenses. The install wizard allows for step-by-step user installation and the gas-saver feature automatically reduces consumption when the system is idle. In addition, many safety features have been added to increase component lifetime.
Barrier films can be accurately measured down to 0.005 cc/(m2 /day) at precise temperature and relative humidity conditions. This is ten times more sensitive than the company’s previously introduced Model 2/22 H.
Automation features include relative humidity (RH), temperature, pressure, flow and testing. These easily are set via the integrated, intuitive touch screen which enables new operators to accurately execute with as little as 10 minutes of training. When testing film with unknown characteristics, the auto test feature determines the optimal parameters and conducts the test to completion. Remote viewing and control from anywhere in the world is possible with the connectivity options.
The automatic sequential testing allows the operator to establish up to 10 different RH and temperature conditions in a single test set-up, and then automatically run all tests without further operator input.
Overall setup and testing times will also be reduced because operators no longer need to empty the reservoir nor wait for the system to dry.
