OX-TRAN® 2/12

The new OX-TRAN 2/12 series of oxygen permeation analysers were designed to provide reliable oxygen transmission rate (OTR) test results on a variety of packaging materials, including high transmitter packaging.

The OX-TRAN 2/12 oxygen permeation analyser series targets barrier film permeation testing for food, beverage, and healthcare packaging applications where affordable, ASTM-compliant tests are needed. The product is well-suited to test the OTR of various barrier and package types including monolayer, multi-layer, and coated films along with coated paper board, pouches, bottles, closures, and more.

The OX-TRAN 2/12 series offers fully automated temperature, flow and RH controls, removable cartridges, TruSeal®, a touch screen, and automatic test method development with recommendations.

“Our new OX-TRAN 2/12 models offer great versatility for oxygen permeation analysis,” said Jeff Jackson, Global Permeation Product Manager.

“The OX-TRAN 2/12 R model can measure over a wide OTR range, and the OX-TRAN 2/12 T model has the ability to test high transmitting barriers like those used in the fresh produce industry. These models fill in the OTR testing range gaps for many of our customers at an affordable price with the reliability they expect from a MOCON product.”
