Digital Gas Mixer for Food Packaging N2, O2, CO2

  • Mixes Ar N2 O2 CO2
  • 2 or 3 gas programmable mixer
  • Uses an intuitive touch screen for easy set-up and operation
  • Meets traceability requirements by storing accurate information about current gas flow, consumption over time and gas mix
  • Avoids operator errors with programming of up to 10 standard gas mixes
  • Data logging of consumption, date, time and gas mix
  • Very low pressure drop over the mixer, making it suitable for working with nitrogen and oxygen generators
  • USB, Ethernet (LAN), RS232, Modbus TCP connections for data logging and control
  • Mixes oxygen, nitrogen and carbon dioxide

A smarter way to mix gas!

The revolutionary MAP Mix Provectus uses an entirely new operating principle to advance the accuracy, operation and appearance of a gas mixer. Simple to use, highly reliable and rich in data, this mixer gives vital feedback on information such as current gas flow, total gas consumption and actual gas mix at any time. It’s also simple when it comes to product selection — no longer do you need to worry about inlet and outlet pressure, whether it will work with your nitrogen or oxygen generators or which gasses you need to mix. Your only decision is whether you need to mix two or three gasses — everything else gets set up on the intuitive touch screen once you power up the unit for the first time. Despite its very limited physical size, the MAP Mix Provectus delivers an outstanding flow of up to 1,500 l/min — and if that’s not enough, you can bridge up to three mixers and triple the capacity.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

1: After unpacking, use the intuitive touch screen to easily program the mixer according to the gasses connected and the desired gas mixture. The MAP Mix Provectus can be programed with up to 10 preset gas mixtures for easy change of gas mix by the operator.
2: During operation, the MAP Mix Provectus ensures the correct gas mixture for the application and keeps the operator informed about inlet pressure, outlet pressure and gas fl ow. In case of any irregularities, the mixer alerts the operator.
3: The MAP Mix Provectus provides operators and quality personnel with vital information about actual gas consumption, inlet and outlet pressure and gas mixture. Best of all, everything can be logged to a PC.
