Optical Fluorescence O2 Analyzer for Measuring Headspace, Dissolved Oxygen, Oxygen Permeation and Package Leak.
Non invasive measurement of oxygen permeation and headspace OpTech-O2-Platinum
The new OpTech O2 Platinum allows the measurement of oxygen permeation and headspace by means of one device only. The OpTech® technology uses an optical sensor that will “fluoresce” or give off light directly related to the amount of oxygen present in package headspace or dissolved oxygen in a liquid product.
The instrument’s light weight and portability (option) makes it suitable for package testing throughout the distribution chain all the way to retail, if results from real life conditions are desired.
By inserting the optional needle attachment (with fluorescing sensor material applied to its tip) into very small headspace packages, which cannot accommodate traditional testing methods, an accurate reading of oxygen concentration can be made without extracting a sample.
In addition to headspace measurement, it is also possible to measure the dissolved oxygen concentration in a liquid product with the needle attachment during the same test. This option works well in both laboratory and field testing scenarios.
The third option is a “first of its kind,” patent-pending ImPULSE™ sensor designed to work with packages incorporating opaque materials or retort packages. A tack with the fluorescent sensor material punctures the package and adheres via a self-sealing adhesive. The sensing material also is located on the self-sealing side.
