Minneapolis-based MOCON, Inc. developed a new instrument that redefines oxygen transmission rate testing for all types of barrier materials. MOCON OxTran

The new OX-TRAN Model 2/22 H is a fully automated and user-friendly system that features advanced technology and design enhancements. The repeatability specification was improved 2.5 times over the industry standard OX-TRAN Model 2/21 H. Automation features include relative humidity, temperature, pressure, flow and testing.

Remote viewing and control from anywhere in the world is possible with the connectivity options. When testing film with unknown characteristics, the auto test feature determines the optimal parameters and conducts the test to completion.

Sequential testing allows for a film to be tested at multiple temperature/relative humidity conditions with no operator involvement. The install wizard allows for step-by-step user installation, and the gas saver feature automatically reduces gas consumption when the system is idle.
