Gas Analyzer for Modified Atmosphere Packaging
The Dansensor MAP Check 3 Vacuum now offers food packagers increased process control and traceability data to help support the latest food safety protocols. The new analyzer is designed for a variety of modified-gas food packaging applications including meat, poultry, fish and baked goods. The unit continuously measures gas content of the packages before they are sealed. Through a user-friendly touchscreen, the operator can create individual programs for each product. As the packaging machine is running, the device takes a gas sample directly from the sealing die and gives an average reading of the residual oxygen (and optional carbon dioxide) for every cycle. If the gas levels approach the present limit, the unit will notify the operator. If the limits are exceeded, the packaging machine will be automatically stopped.
