LAB.CO

NON-DESTRUCTIVE CO2 MEASURING DEVICE

CO2 measuring instrument LAB.CO for the non-destructive, highly accurate determination of the CO2 content in closed glass and PET bottles.

ADVANTAGES

  • Very easy handling, as the glass and PET bottles are only inserted into one adapter, therefore no handling error is possible
  • Very fast measurement time, less than 1 minute
  • Non-destructive method, the bottle is returned to production after measurement, no piercing necessary; temperature measurement by means of laser technology contact-free;- Very simple calibration procedure. Inspection of original containers during series tests, for long-term tests of shelf life the measurement is always carried out with the same bottle
  • No foreign gas influence, because of selective laser technology
  • No wear costs, as nothing moves; no foreign gases, no seals, no shaking during measurement, no filling of measuring chambers, no impellers
  • Very simple calibration procedure

LAB.N2

NON-DESTRUCTIVE N2 MEASURING DEVICE FOR PET BOTTLES

LAB.N2 determines non-destructively and accurately pressures in containers of non-carbonated beverages with nitrogen flashover in glass and PET bottles, such as in juices, water or still wines. Long-term tests on one and the same sample are now possible. Bottles with sport caps can also be measured. There is no need to dispose of the samples. Normally usual according to invasive manometric methods

 

ADVANTAGES

  • No moving parts, maintenance-free
  • Extremely fast, easy handling
  • Loss-free measurement of the sample!

Retest the same bottle repeatedly to check loss of N2 through closure

Measurement in < 1 minute

Simple Calibration & Testing 

Test torque from closure application

Non-destructive measurement

No wasted product from sampling

Over 1000 installations worldwide

Highly accurate measurement

Measurement without removing or piercing the closure

LAB.SHAKE

LABORATORY BOTTLE SHAKER

The bottle shaker LAB.SHAKE is an overhead turning device for glass and PET bottles of the beverage industry.

The LAB.SHAKE serves for sample preparation for the Laboratory CO2-Meter LAB.CO and guarantees that the CO2 content in the headspace and in the liquid phase are balanced at the time of CO2 determination. The overhead turning movement with its assigned number and velocity makes it possible.

Before starting the device the bottle is placed and fixed in the appropriate holder. For glass bottles a closed holder has been constructed to provide shatter protection in case of breaking glass.

By moisture-resistant capacitive keys the number of turns and the velocity can be adjusted and the device is started. Velocity and remaining turns are shown in a display. The LAB.SHK stands out because of its very simple operation.

Decontamination & long-term storage

NATRApHASE® FVS is a post-harvest vegetable decontaminant synergistically blended using FSANZ, EU and FDA approved, GRAS status, label friendly, processing aid ensuring long-term protection against Gram+ and Gram- bacteria, yeast and mould and Extended Shelf Life of packed and/or processed Fresh Vegetable snacks and Vegetable Salads without affecting the original taste, colour and texture of your food products. The product is extremely effective when applied to Fresh Post-harvest whole un-cut vegetables with high organic/biofilm loadings
