Witt-Gasetechnik will be exhibiting at the European trade fair for packaging, processing and technology – FachPack 2018.
Witt, an international specialist in modified atmosphere packaging for many applications, including food and beverages, will be showcasing its new gas analyser Oxybeam, its mobile oxygen (O2)/carbon dioxide (CO2) gas analyser Oxybaby® and its Leak-Master® Easy package leak dectector.
“Oxybeam, designed as a tabletop device, harnesses infrared laser light to detect the O2 concentration in MAP packaging. The advantage of this technology: The packaging is not damaged during testing.”
“The residual O2 concentration is accurately displayed on a touchscreen in steps of 0.1%. The Class 1 laser does not require the operator to wear eye protection and only needs a small viewing area into the packaging interior.
“The measurable headspace of the packaging should be in the region of 16 to 80 mm. The O2 analyser is equipped with a USB/Ethernet interface and can be operated within a gas temperature range from 5 to 40°C. Repetitive measurements over a pre-determined time period are also possible using the Oxybeam non-destructive detection test,” the company explained.
Witt said Oxybaby is now even more user friendly. Measurement results can now be stored in CSV format on a micro SD card. This greatly simplifies data exporting, which previously required a USB interface and additional software.
“The leak detector, which functions using a water-based bubble leak test, is now available in two additional, more compact test chamber sizes. The lower capacity of the 0.5 and 1.5 litre chambers simplifies cleaning and water changes, whilst still offering the full functionality of the popular leak detector. So, the series now includes seven models that can detect even the smallest leaks, for example in pharmaceutical products or food packaging with or without a modified atmosphere,” the company said.
FachPack will be held in Nuremberg, Germany, from 25th to 27th September.
