Oxygen Ingress Measurement in Non-Transparent Bottles
Oxygen-Sensitive Cap OSC-PSt3
To measure the oxygen ingress in non-transparent bottles, the oxygen sensor spot type PSt3 has to be placed onto the transparent closure - the oxygen sensitive cap - which is adapted to the respective PET bottle. Three seals ensure the gas tightness of the closure. A safety screw adapted to the bottle thread is used to fix the closure.
- Non-invasive measurements
- No consumption of oxygen
- Measures oxygen in liquids as well as in gas phase
- Oxygen ingress determination under real conditions
Food & Beverage: Oxygen Permeation Measurement in PET Bottles
Non-invasive oxygen sensors measure both in liquid and in gaseous (headspace) phases. They perform through transparent materials up to a thickness of 10 mm and even through slightly opaque packaging. The measurement is carried out by firmly holding the fiber optic probe against the side of a PET bottle where the sensor spot is positioned. Adjustable mountings and bespoke fixtures are available. This system allows even the parallel measurement of different bottles as the fiber can be moved from bottle to bottle.
