Mocon OX-TRAN Model 12/21 10x oxygen transmission rate test instrument

Friday, 06 December, 2013 | Supplied by: Inspection Systems Pty Ltd

Mocon has developed an oxygen transmission rate test instrument that accurately and repeatably measures barriers to 5 x 10-4 cc/(m2 x day), which is 10 times lower than previous levels, according to the company. The OX-TRAN Model 2/21 10x system measures films or packages at precise temperature and relative humidity conditions.

The system is suitable for a variety of applications which require increasingly better oxygen barriers. Film and resin manufacturers, converters and packagers in industries such as electronics (OLED and thin film), solar, vacuum panel, food, pharmaceutical and medical device may benefit from the system’s greater sensitivity for measuring ultra-oxygen transmission characteristics of films and packages.

The company has engineered a number of improvements into the system, including the improved proprietary COULOX coulometric sensor which counts each oxygen molecule permeating through the film.

Additional improvements include: improved electronics to reduce system noise level; TruSeal film cell design to eliminate edge leakage and give a good seal; and improved temperature stability.

Each module contains two test cells and is available in master and satellite configuration. The 10x module connects with all other modules in the OX-TRAN 2/21 family of transmission rate test systems.

The system complies with ASTM D3985.
