Oxygen permeation testing for beverage bottles
The OxyTraQ® oxygen permeation system is a fast, easy-to-use multi-station unit which delivers fast, reproducible results. It targets manufacturers and fillers of beverage bottles and can handle a wide range of containers from small barrier bottles to half-gallon jugs. It is ideally-suited for testing/retesting oxygen scavenger bottles, as well as film samples.
The OxyTraQ® unique Purge Rack System features patent-pending Container Transfer Units (CTUs) which eliminates the need for bottles to sit on the testing device for weeks at a time in order to reach equilibrium.
This is done by mounting a bottle on the CTU and then placing it on the Purge Rack where it is flushed with the same gas mixture used in the OxyTraQ® system. Once the bottle reaches equilibrium, it can then be quickly and easily transferred to the OxyTraQ® device where final permeation values can be generated in less than one day.
