Coveris uses the Systech 8001 Oxygen Permeability Analyser to validate the barrier performance of its packaging films.
With more than 8,500 global employees and 60 strategically located facilities, Coveris is dedicated to providing solutions that enhance the safety, quality and convenience of products we use every day. It uses the latest technology to offer high performance solutions for the most challenging applications.
Its flexible packaging innovations have proven essential to prevent product losses in storage, distribution and the preservation of food. The preservation of foodstuffs is achieved by the inherent design of the packaging structure, whose primary function is to provide optimised barrier performance to extend the shelf life of the product it is protecting. A high barrier against oxygen permeation is essential in order to maintain a high shelf life.
Within the company’s research and development department, Coveris uses the Systech 8001 Oxygen Permeability Analyser to test the barrier performance of its packaging films. It recently purchased additional expansion units for this analysis instrument to increase testing throughput.
This leading permeation analyser from Systech Illinois offers the widest measurement range in the market and precise humidity control for switching between wet and dry samples in minutes. It is ideal for R&D testing with accurate and repeatable results and with the speed required for quality control testing.
