Micro-Precision Era of Trace Detection Opened by Permeability Testing Instruments Open

Labthink officially launched its new C-series permeability testing instruments on August 1st, 2018. This series includes C330 series Water Vapor Transmission Rate Test Systems, C390 series Water Vapor Transmission Rate Test Systems, C230 series Oxygen Transmission Rate Test Systems and C360 series Water Vapor Transmission Rate Test Systems.

The new C-series products combine Labthink's 30 years of manufacturing and testing knowledge in the packaging testing industry and encompass the self-developed sensor technology, which reaches a revolutionary upgrade of automation, test accuracy and efficiency. These systems are the top-level permeability testing instruments manufactured by Labthink.

A Number of Technological Changes Make the Great Transformation of the Sensor Method Instruments

Labthink’s self-developed sensor technology has reached a world-class level in multiple technical indexes. At the beginning of 2018, after almost five years of extensive exploration and research, Labthink made huge breakthroughs in the development and research of core sensor technology, which included electrolytic sensor method, infrared sensor method and coulometric sensor method, to name a few.

The brand new c-series permeability testing instruments are all equipped with the self-developed sensor technology which allows excellent sensitivity, precision, repeatability, service life and stability. They can be utilized to establish the water or oxygen vapor transmission rate of low, medium and high barrier materials with high test efficiency and a large test range.

New Generation Integrated Testing Block Provides More Constant Testing Conditions

The key point of a permeability test is to place the specimen in a constant testing condition, including flow rate of test gas and carrier gas, temperature and humidity. The results are more accurate because the testing conditions are more stable.

The instruments incorporate a humidity control device that can automatically create the required stable humidity for contrasting test temperatures. In addition, the internal temperature of the C series instruments can be adjusted automatically and maintained stable, which can stop certain temperature changes in laboratory, and adhere to the requirements for the operating environment and the instrument.

C390 Water Vapor Transmission Rate Test System (infrared sensor method) helps to maintain the stable and constant flow in the test process and minimizing testing errors, it has the design of the automatic gas flow adjustment function.

The new C-series permeability instruments, as a classic design, also utilize the integrated testing block consisting of three test cells to enhance the efficiency of testing. In addition, the new products have optimized the patented integrated testing block according to hydrodynamics and thermodynamics, hugely decreasing the temperature, humidity and flow difference between the three test cells, creating a uniform testing environment, with more accurate test results. The instrument can examine three distinct or identical sample tests concurrently, adhering to the standard requirements for parallel tests, and enhancing test efficiency.

Labthink’s Best Gravimetric Method Moisture Permeability Testing Instrument Yet: C360 Series Water Vapor Transmission Rate Test Systems

C360 series instruments have advanced patented thermodynamic and hydrodynamic design of test dishes and test chamber to verify the uniform flow rate over the specimen surface, stable humidity and temperature, producing a stable and uniform testing environment. This results in a shorter test duration and more accurate test results.

Labthink's instrument is based on ASTM E96 and other international standards. It can determine the testing environmental conditions for precision adjustment calculations, and possesses outstanding test capabilities for low and high barrier materials, providing better test repeatability for low barrier materials and high test accuracy for high barrier materials.

The flow rate, temperature, and humidity of the C360 series are all automatically administered. The test cell space is supplied with a mist-free, high-efficiency, automatic humidity adjustment device and has a stereo constant temperature design to meet the requirements of continuous long-term testing.

Easy-to-Use and High-Efficiency System

Labthink centers on resolving the difficulties of conventional software systems such as difficulty exporting data, poor compatibility, complex operations, etc. to satisfy the requirements of a professional system and people's operating habits. A 12 inch touch-screen pad is utilized in the instrument, which is equipped with a high-performance processor. Unique, optional DataShieldTM system facilitates centralized management and backup of user data. To stop data leakage reliable security algorithms are used, third-party software is supported so that the data can be exported in a number of formats.

The user interface is uncomplicated, easy to operate and can be utilized with a variety of software and devices. Labthink introduced automatic test mode for the first time, so users only need to input basic test parameters and mount the samples, then click the start button.

The instrument will provide the test results efficiently with "preferred strategy" so the operator can save training costs and new test users can master the operating procedures of the instrument in a short amount of time. The new C series permeability instruments also possess a "professional test mode", which can meet the requirements for personalized scientific research and allows access to a number of control functions.
