Bestech Australia has introduced the OX2/231, an oxygen permeability tester to determine the oxygen transmission rate of film and package products, including plastic films, composite films, sheeting, plastic bottles, plastic bags and other packages. This is important to ensure the food product maintains a long shelf life. It comes with two test modules for both films and packages for accurate tests. The tester can test three specimens at once, and then export test results for analysis. An easy-to-use menu interface with LCD display ensures viewing and exporting data is convenient.
The tester is recommended for the following packages:
- Films – plastic films, aluminium foils, etc.
- Sheeting – engineering plastics, rubber and building materials
- Package caps
- Plastic pipes
- Blister packs
- Wine bottles
- Contact lenses
