To ensure the efficacy of modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) and uphold the desired shelf life of food products, achieving the correct gas mixture is paramount. At Anuga FoodTec, renowned MAP specialist WITT will showcase definitive methods for verifying gas mixtures, offering a comprehensive solution for quality assurance.
MAPY Series – In-line Gas Analysis
WITT's MAPY series of in-line O2 and/or CO2 analysers provides precise and reliable measurement of modified atmospheres during the packaging process, enhancing both process efficiency and product safety. The MAPY LE version is specifically tailored for tubular bag packaging machines, continuously sampling gas from the closing tubular bag. Meanwhile, the MAPY VAC version, suitable for tray sealing and thermoforming packaging machines, verifies vacuum levels before measuring the incoming shielding gas directly in the sealing mould. Both versions can alert users if limit values are exceeded and seamlessly integrate into existing systems. With their compact design and hygienic stainless steel housing, MAPY analysers are easily installed on packaging machines, ensuring seamless operation.
OXYBABY® and OXYPAD – Portable Gas Analysers
For spot checks after sealing, WITT offers the OXYBABY® and OXYPAD gas analysers. These devices enable quick and accurate analysis of gas samples directly from packaging, whether on the production line, in the warehouse, or laboratory. Featuring rapid measurement times, minimal gas requirements, and user-friendly interfaces, these portable analysers provide valuable insights into the composition of modified atmospheres. The new OXYPAD model boasts a 7'' touchscreen and compact design, ideal for both desktop and mobile use. Additionally, advanced features such as a lockable front flap and ergonomic needle holder enhance ease of use and safety.
