Rapid Oxygen Permeation Analysis of PET Bottles

Our team of Technical Sales Managers from Systech Illinois are looking forward to participating at the K plastics and rubber trade fair next week and showcasing our range of permeation and headspace gas analysers to the many visitors who attend from all over the world.

We are particular enthusiastic to introduce the new DualPerm oxygen / water vapour permeation station and to display our multiple bottle oxygen permeation analyser.

The 8700 oxygen permeation analyser offers an exceptionally fast Turbopurge™ feature which allows up to 11 bottles to be tested in 3 to 12 hours providing much greater production throughput.

This permeation analyser has the ability to test a variety of samples; bottles, packages and films and the software capability to allow individual packages to be started, stopped or delayed during testing.

Custom made adaptors are available for a wide range of applications such as complete package testing, including bottles with closures.

The 8700 is ideal for use in applications such as beer bottle manufacturing, where oxygen permeability is key as permeation of oxygen through the bottle will have a significant influence on the products shelf life.

Please come and visit us at Hall 10, Stand G13.
