Kick-Off of new EU project
November marked the start of a new EU project that GASPOROX is participating in. The project is within the EU FP7 framework and aims to develop “Innovative non- intrusive laser gas sensors on food production for real time quality/safety in line control of food packaging and bottling systems”. There are 10 different companies and academic institutions partaking in the project that runs over three years.
Report from new benchmark test, results very good
A study comparing the performance of the GASPOROX GAS PI1 headspace gas analyser with a commercially available intrusive fluorescence based oxygen-sensing technology has been carried out. The test was performed on opaque Tetra Pak Evero Aseptic packages containing milk, with headspace oxygen varying between 3 and 21 percent. The part of the light transmitted by the GASPOROX GAS PI1 through the package was about 0.0001%, as compared to the very much higher rate needed for fluorescence technology. To achieve the required transmission for the fluorescence measurement, a transparent glass window was glued at a drilled hole in the cap. For the GASPOROX GAS PI1 instrument no sample preparation was required. The results showed a strong correlation between the measurement data for the two instruments, R2 = 0.9982, and the differences between the two instruments was within ±0.5% points over the whole oxygen concentration range.
During the last couple of months GASPOROX has expanded with regards to both human resources and technical equipment. A new laboratory allows GASPOROX to offer service measurements to customers as well as provide an effective development tool for packages and products. Both market department and product
development group has been strengthened and we welcome Arefeh Mousavi, Joan Sandberg, Bjarne Solberg and Johannes
Swartling to our team.
