2-in-1 gas analyser for modified atmosphere packaging - OXYPAD: new device class for QM
With the new O2/CO2 gas analyser OXYPAD, WITT-Gasetechnik presents a true 2-in-1 solution for the quality control of modified atmosphere packaging: high-quality table-top device and mobile analyser in one. The innovative design is particularly user-friendly and makes operation quick, easy and safe. Inside the OXYPAD, the best available gas sensor technology is deployed. A sample can be taken from the packaging quickly and efficiently by means of the needle, and the proportion of oxygen and carbon dioxide can be determined. Thanks to the small gas sample requirement, even small packages with very low gas volumes can be tested. Individual limit values per gas can be defined for each package. If these are exceeded, the user is alerted by an alarm. Another function that makes the measurement results particularly reliable: if the needle or the filter is slightly contaminated, the analyser adjusts the output so that a correct measurement is still given. If the needle is blocked, a warning is given. False measurements are thus effectively prevented. Weighing just under 600 grams, with its compact design and equipped with a rechargeable battery - the OXYPAD has been deliberately developed for mobile use. Innovative design details clearly distinguish the WITT device from other models. Only WITT’s design hides the tube and needle safely and tidily behind a flap on the front. When carrying the unit, nothing sticks out and can snag. There is no danger of getting the hose snagged, or injuring yourself on the needle. The needle holder, the key tool for the quality inspector, has also been optimised. The ergonomically shaped aluminium needle pen is easy to hold, has a solid feel, and makes puncturing even the smallest packages particularly easy. The smooth twisting mechanism protects the sensitive needle and makes for safe handling.
