Headspace Oxygen Analyser

This equipment is used to measure the residual O2 concentration in Nitrogen Flushed (MAP) packages.

Eg. Snacks, Nuts, etc

A septum seal sticker is applied to the package (pouch / blister / tetra-pack / bottle, etc and a needle in pushed through it. The gas inside is allowed to come out through the needle and is analysed by an Oxygen sensor.

The instrument shows the O2% directly.

Ambient air has 20.9% oxygen. MAP targets to flush out this air and bring down the O2 level to under 1.5%. Presence of O2 in excess of 2% can have a degrading effect in product stability and shelf life.

High O2% exposure to high fat / oils foods causes rancidity and reduces shelf life.
