The PERMATRAN-C Model 4/41 is a carbon dioxide (CO2) transmission rate test system for assessing barrier films and package materials. The system is ideally suited for rapidly predicting product shelf-life, or checking the quality of incoming and outgoing packaging materials.
MOCON also offer a specific system for fast and accurate verification of carbonated beverage shelf-life – PERMATRAN-C Model 10.
This instrument measures the carbon-dioxide transmission rate of individual plastic carbonated beverage bottles. The non-destructive test takes as little as 3 hours to produce results. The Permatran-C Model 10 will graphically display projected shelf life, based on a user-specified loss limit, in a matter of hours.
