Gas analysers for the food sector

AGC Instruments has introduced the Map-Pak family of Gas Analysers. The O2 Series and the Combi Series are the first in its new product line of Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) Analysers.

Designed specifically for the Food Industry, Map-Pak O2 measures the Oxygen content within gas flushed food packages. The measurement range is from 0% to 100% with an accuracy of ±1%, and a resolution of 0.1%. This lightweight portable analyzer has a wide variety of features which make it both efficient and easy to use.

The Map-Pak Combi unit provides more flexibility in that it will measure O2, CO2 & N2 (as a balance). Oxygen levels are measured by an electrochemical sensor and the Carbon Dioxide levels are measured by a nondispersive infrared sensor (NDIR). These sophisticated measurement systems allow fast and accurate readings with the inclusion of Nitrogen as a balance gas reading. The Combi gives the user greater flexibility in terms of analysis and offers more in-depth reporting of data for today’s stringent gas flushed food packaging measures.

Sample measurements and results are achieved within seconds and there is a storage capacity of up to 5,000 measurements. Both units can operate for seven hours on one charge and utilize a Power Saver function that shuts down after two minutes of non-use. Alternatively it can be operated whilst running off the Mains AC power. The user can select from and edit five Operator titles and 25 Product titles. These rugged analyzers are manufactured in a water resistant and wipe clean material, as hygiene is of paramount importance.

AGC Instruments has over 45 years of experience within the gas analysis industry and quality and reliability are assured.

AGC Instruments is looking for distributors for this product.
