Minneapolis-based Mocon Inc. said its Aquatran Model 1 is a test instrument that measures water-vapor permeation — at 10 times the measurement sensitivity of other test instruments.
The unit is well-suited for testing ultrahigh barrier films, and packaging, to help extend product shelf life.
Mocon also launched the Permatran-C Model 10, for fast and accurate verification of the shelf life of carbonated beverages. It measures the rate of carbon dioxide transmission of individual plastic carbonated beverage bottles.
The unit can be used with bottle sizes of 250 milliliters to 2.5 liters.
