Versaperm launches kit to check packaging contamination

Versaperm has launched new equipment designed to quantify the effect of contamination and water.

Versaperm perfect-packaging

The kit precisely measures the packaging’s water vapour and other permeability.

This gives manufacturers the key they need to improve packaging and improve the preservation of a pack’s contents.

Vapour permeability is the main controlling factor for many products and processes – from why cornflakes go soggy through to how fast drugs loose potency.

It is the critical factor in a packaging’s printability and the mechanical handling of paper and films.

Versaperm’s permeability metre produces results that are accurate in the parts per million range, (parts per billion in some cases).

For some packaging designs this can take as little as 30 minutes.  It can optionally control temperature, pressure and other important factors.

A very wide range of variations and cutting-edge sensors is available, depending on the specific application.  Multi-chamber systems allow measurements to be produced on several samples at the same time and different designs and clamping systems cater for numerous sample types.
