11 May 2009

Witt, the gas safety, control, mixing and analysis equipment supplier, is showing a wide range of new and existing products on stand nr B25 at the PPMA Show 2009 at the NEC Birmingham from 29th September – 1st October.

New products will include OXYBABY® 6.0, a cordless hand held O2 or O2/CO2 gas analyser for use with Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) and MAPY 4.0, which received this year’s red dot award for outstanding design.

MAPY 4.0 is an ergonomically designed, mains operated, multifunctional, O2/CO2 protective atmospheres analyser with an optional integrated printer.

OXYBABY® 6.0 measures either the O2 or O2/CO2 content in the smallest food packages, such as salami and cheese slices as well as other food packaging including poultry and salads. It features a high-resolution display, an integrated barcode reader (optional), Bluetooth connection (optional) and a USB port for data transfer and charging of the battery.

Other features include user friendly menu navigation, extended data storage for up to 500 different measurements, as well being able to assign up to 25 users, 100 products and 50 packaging lines to the stored measurements.

Witt will also exhibit a KM100-2/3M gas mixer integrated with a MAPY 4.0 multifunction O2/CO2 protective atmospheres analyser to create a gas mixing and analysing system within one single cabinet as a “2 in 1” version. These gas mixers are also available as “3 in 1” versions producing a fully automated system proportionally controlling the gas flow on packaging lines to maintain a residual oxygen value which can reduce gas consumption by up to 30%.

Witt’s comprehensive range of gas mixing and analysis equipment for use on Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) lines will be shown, including LEAK-MASTER® MAPMAX, a fully automatic, in-line, non-destructive, detection system to detect leaks for food and pharmaceutical packers supplying rigid and flexible Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) using vacuum, thermoform, chamber or horizontal/vertical form, fill and seal packaging machines.  The latest system has two additional chamber sizes to the existing three, including one for the testing of complete crates/trays.
