The MAPCHECK 3 continously monitors the modified atmosphere flushing gases in Vertical and Horizontal Flow Wrapper packaging machines. The real time monitoring of the package atmosphere improves productivity in several ways. It saves gas by tuning the gas flow to the optimum level for the packing machine. It reduces waste because if there is problem the MapCheck can halt the machine. It improves quality because every package is checked before sealing and this in turn reduces the amount of off line testing that would otherwise be required. An optional gas save feature allow the MapCheck to monitor and control the flow of gas to the packages. If for example the residual oxygen is reading to high (not flushed enough) then the flow of flushing gas can be increased automatically to achieve the desired level.
The MapCheck can also be integrated with a Provectus gas mixer so that it can automatically control both the gas flow and mix to suit the production conditions. Data logging can be used to record gas content and consumption for every run so that a quality control record can be built up
