MOCON Inc. is announcing the global launch of its PERMATRAN-W Model 3/33 Plus, a new generation of its industry standard, water vapor transmission rate (WVTR) line.
For the first time, units in the Model 3/33 series will offer automatic relative humidity (RH) capability via a new software interface. This will help brand owners quickly and simply achieve accurate and precise relative humidity conditions. Precise results are critical to understanding how barriers will perform in real-world conditions. The PERMATRAN-W series tests the WVTR of films as well as finished flexible and/or rigid plastic-based packaging.
RH significantly impacts the water vapor transmission rate of many materials. MOCON assures accuracy in obtaining precise RH by incorporating a patented modulated infrared probe within the test cell. A high-precision sensor provides parts-per-million sensitivity. Any deviation from the desired set-point is automatically adjusted. With temperature and RH automation incorporated in the new PERMATRAN-W Model 3/33 Plus, obtaining reliable information to help make critical decisions is effortless.
The PERMATRAN-W Model 3/33 Plus series comes in three-different master base control systems with three satellite modules—each providing different test capabilities for a maximum of 20 test cells per system.
