Solutions for quality control of the headspace in food packages, beverage bottles or pharmceutical products

Quality Control for Modified Atmosphere Packages (MAP)

PBI-Dansensor offers three different solutions for quality control of the headspace in food packages, beverage bottles or pharmaceutical products (also know as headspace gas analysis). With our handheld headspace gas analyser, we offer an easy to use entry level product that meets the basic requirement for residual oxygen analysis/ measurement in the food industry.

A perfect workflow

The latest addition to our gas analyser range is the CheckPoint 3 – a portable quality control instrument. The CheckPoint 3 gives Quality Control managers a valuable tool to ensure that all important data of the Modified Atmosphere Packaging production is easily stored centrally.

Easy traceability

For larger production facilities and customers with a demand for high accuracy quality control PBI-Dansensor suggests our gas analyser CheckMate 3. The CheckMate 3 covers any need for documentation and traceability of products packed in modified atmosphere. With the CheckMate 3 gas analyser it is possible to set up a complete workflow for headspace/ oxygen and carbon dioxide testing of packages, bottles, and pharmaceuticals. With the easy to use bar code option it is possible to collect almost any vital data such as batch number, packaging line, package type and even operator name.

A recommendation about oxygen measurement in high carbon dioxide concentrations

Both the CheckPoint 3 and CheckMate 3 gas analysers offer CO2 testing as well, giving the option to ensure that the gas mix in the package is correct. However, carbon dioxide can have an effect on the oxygen content measurement in instruments using an electrochemical oxygen sensor (like the CheckPoint). This means that in applications with a CO2 content of 25-65% PBI-Dansensor always recommends a CheckPoint O2/CO2 as this instrument is able to compensate for the CO2 content – thus giving a more accurate oxygen reading. A feature which, to our knowledge, is not available in any other portable instrument on the market. In applications where the CO2 content is higher than

65% and a high accuracy oxygen concentration is still needed we suggest considering the CheckMate 3 with Zirconia oxygen sensor as this sensor technology is not affected by the carbon dioxide content.
