Online Gas Analyzer for Thermoforming, Tray Sealing Machines

Dansensor, a division of Minneapolis-based MOCON, launched an online gas analyzer for modified atmosphere packaging (MAP)-equipped thermoforming and tray Dansensor MAP Check 3 Vacuumsealing machines.

The new Dansensor MAP Check 3 Vacuum now offers food packagers worldwide increased process control and traceability data to help support the latest food safety protocols. The new gas analyzer is ideal for a wide variety of modified gas food packaging applications, including meat, poultry, fish and baked goods.

MAP Check 3 Vacuum continuously measures gas content of the packages before they are sealed. Through a user-friendly touchscreen, the operator can create individual programs for each product. As the packaging machine is running, MAP Check 3 Vacuum takes a gas sample directly from the sealing die and gives an average reading of the residual oxygen (and optional carbon dioxide) for every cycle. If the gas levels approach the pre-set limit, MAP Check 3 Vacuum will notify the operator. If the limits are exceeded, the packaging machine will automatically stop, minimizing the chance of a future recall and reducing labor, product waste and re-packaging.

The MAP Check 3 Vacuum has full data logging capabilities, USB and Ethernet connectivity.

The new unit replaces Dansensor’s previous vacuum and gas flush analyzer, the CMV-2. It also can be seamlessly integrated with the company’s compact MAP Mix Provectus gas mixer.
