Minneapolis-based MOCON, Inc. improved the ability to measure oxygen transmission rates (OTR) with the new OX-TRAN Model 2/22 L,specifically engineered to accurately and quickly measure OTR for a wide range of high-barrier materials and packages.

The OX-TRANModel 2/22 L significantly reduces test times and is said to improve the repeatability specification 2.5 times over the industry standard.

The install wizard allows for step-by-step user installation and the gas-saver feature automatically reduces consumption when the system is idle. In addition, barrier films can be accurately measured down to 0.005 cc/(m2 • day) at precise temperature and relative humidity conditions.

Automation features include relative humidity, temperature, pressure, flow and testing.
