Mocon Inc. has unveiled what officials claim is the first-ever fully-automated testing system for the water vapor transmission rate (WVTR) for packaging and other barrier structures. It's called Permatran-W Model 3/34 G.
The WVTR is the rate at which water vapor permeates through a film at specified conditions of temperature and relative humidity.
Mocon officials said the new testing system will save a significant amount of time and cost for food, pharmaceutical, beverage, medical device, electronics, and construction products. The unit also can be used by converters and resin producers who want to test film materials and finished packages.
You can run 10 sequential tests with a single setup. A high-purge mode reduces the packaging testing preparation time.
Mocon is in Minneapolis.
