Inline modified atmosphere pack checks

Inline modified atmosphere pack checks

An automated leak testing system, which helps food processors ensure that modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) does not have undetected micro leaks, is now available globally.

US company Mocon’s inline Dansensor LeakProtego, which was shown at the Interpack show in Düsseldorf last month, has been engineered to test for potential leaks at levels lower than previously possible, claims its developer.

Because MAP leaks degrade shelf-life, compromise product safety and negatively impact brand image, Mocon’s goal was to develop an inline system that provides food processors with package integrity information further upstream to facilitate cost savings.

The LeakProtego uses a novel sensing system with carbon dioxide as a trace gas to detect leaks down to 50 microns.

It relies on modular units, each of which can test up to 12 packages a minute. Multiple modules can be combined so that individual package testing can keep up with MAP equipment output.
