Mocon Inc.’s new RACK-6 conditioning systems, to increase throughout of oxygen testing for rigid packages.

RACK-6 is designed for use with Mocon’s OX-TRAN Model 2/61, which measures oxygen transmission rates for up to six rigid or flexible packages at the same time. The RACK-6 has a separate, six-cell conditioning unit so packages can be brought to equilibrium offline before moving them to the OX-TRAN Model 2/61 for final test results.

The unit greatly reduces the time for testing barrier packaging.

Mocon is based in Minneapolis.
