Headspace analyzers are imperative for accurate shelf life testing of finished packages and can also be used as a great quality assurance and quality control device for CAP/MAP (Controlled Atmosphere Packaging/Modified Atmosphere Packaging) products. Sample testing is necessary, as the atmosphere in a package cannot be strictly and indefinitely controlled; only modified.
The PAC CHECK™ Systems from MOCON® are used in production, quality control, and R&D applications. The PAC CHECK™ measures O2 or CO2 concentration with small sample amounts, manually or automatically. The same analyzer can be used for both flexible and rigid packaging. This instrument is certified traceable to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) as an added feature for the quality conscious producer.
MOCON has been developing and marketing headspace analyzers for over 15 years. We have a variety to choose from – hand-held or bench top. Related to headspace analyzers are our line of gas stream analyzers for on-line monitoring of modified atmosphere packaging and other gas flushing operations.
