MOCON Inc., a permeability testing equipment manufacturer, has released a new oxygen (O2) permeation system to help aid corporation’s speed-to-market abilities along with reducing costs for ultra-high barrier applications.

The OX-TRAN® Model 2/22 10X system has been designed to help companies better manage testing costs and to deliver their products to market in a much shorter timeframe.

The US-based business suggests that its new permeation platform for ultra-high barrier materials can reduce test times by as much as 50%.

The new O2 transmission rate test instrument measures films or packages at precise temperature and relative humidity conditions, and is ideal for a variety of applications which require increasingly better O2 barrier solutions.

In addition to receiving test results significantly faster, this new platform automates the test process so that the instrument doesn’t have to be continuously monitored

Ryan Holland, Permeation Product Manager of MOCON, highlighted, “In addition to receiving test results significantly faster, this new platform automates the test process so that the instrument doesn’t have to be continuously monitored. This frees employee time for other critical tasks and reduces overall testing costs.”

Its greater sensitivity for measuring O2 transmission characteristics of film and packages are ideally suited for a range of applications which require ultra-high O2 barriers, such as film and resin manufacturers, electronics like OLED and thin film, solar, vacuum panel, pharmaceutical and medical devices.

The OX-TRAN Model 2/22 10X can handle a range of flexible materials, including all plastic, foil and metalised structures.
