Qualitest introduces the new Gas Transmission Rate Tester for measuring the gas permeability rate of hollow packaging containers. The test gas may be air, oxygen, nitrogen and carbon dioxide, etc., while the hollow packaging container includes Soda beverage bottle, fruit juice beverage bottle, edible oil can, tea beverage bottle, dairy packaging container, daily use chemicals packaging container, metal packaging container, etc. Hollow container gas transmission rate is the measurement of number of gas molecule that permeate from the container wall to the interior in unit time.
Manometric Method, which is the fundamental method in gas transmission rate testing, is used in this instrument. Two testing modes of proportional and non-proportional can meet different testing needs of different material, while the three testing chambers improve the testing efficiency. All test results are documented and can also be displayed, and the easy-to-use software provides graphs, tables and numerical listings. The tester is capable of testing the packages over a wide range from 0.0001 – 1800ml/pkg with a resolution of 0.1Pa.
The instrument has a RS 232 interface with network transmission interface for LAN data management and Internet data transmission.
