Introduction to the MapCheck-Combi measurement
The MapCheck Combi is a sensitive oxygen / carbon dioxide analyzer
designed for use with modified atmosphere packaging and similar
systems. The instrument works by drawing a small sample of the
head-space gas sequentially into a special zirconium detector for
oxygen and then into a miniature IR detector for CO2. The analysis is
very quick and the results are displayed on an LCD display in real
time. The MapCheck-Combi is self contained it includes everything you
need for the analysis of gas flushing streams and product packs for
MAP and similar applications. The instrument includes an extensive
range of features for ease of use, and ease of maintenance.
The MapCheck Combi analyzer is easy to use
The MapCheck has been designed for ease of use with a touch screen
display and an easy to follow menu structure with graphic icons. The
measurement procedure is fully automatic, The sample tube is placed
close to point where the gas stream will be monitored. The built in
pump continuously meters the sample into the analyzer and the analysis
appears virtually in real time on the LCD display. Other operating
modes allow you to make a spot test of the finished product. The spot
test sample needle is inserted into the package and the MapCheck
withdraws a small volume of head space and produces the spot test
Your test data is recorded automatically
The results from each MapCheck analysis are automatically stored in
memory and can be printed out via the serial interface or downloaded
to a PC. Tests can be categorized by product type (or machine etc.).
There are 99 categories built into the MapCheck which you can
customize with names of your own.
Calibrated and ready to use
The MapCheck Combi comes ready calibrated, with a certificate of
calibration, and only needs to be re-calibrated once a year. If you
want to re-calibrate the MapCheck yourself you can take advantage of a
built in automatic calibration routine.
