Cost-effective PermMate system launched


PBI-Dansensor has launched a new cost-effective and versatile system for measuring the oxygen permeability of finished packages, for use within the field of food and food packaging.

The system, called PermMate, will enable packaging engineers to rapidly obtain the information they need to create the most appropriate package, to achieve the necessary shelf life for a given product.

Conventionally, packaging engineers rely on permeability data provided by suppliers of the packaging materials. However, during the process of forming the package the packaging foil is heated and stretched, which will affect its permeability properties. PermMate now brings packaging permeability testing within the reach of engineers.

PBI-Dansensor’s Sales and Marketing Manager Karsten Kejlhof explained, “We use a more simple principle than the other types of equipment, we are flexible and versatile and can test a lot of packages in a short space of time.”
