To ensure first-class product quality over long periods of time the goal of all food producers is the preservation of taste, colour and freshness of food, this is obtained through modified atmosphere packaging. An advantage of reducing oxygen is that it inhibits the growth of aerobic micro-organisms and the speed of oxidation reactions.
The removed oxygen can be replaced with nitrogen (N2), commonly acknowledged as an inert gas, or carbon dioxide (CO2), which can lower the pH or inhibit the growth of bacteria. Carbon monoxide can be used for preserving the red colour of meat.
The KRUESS MAT1500 Modified Atmosphere Tester is used for quality control in the laboratory, in the production sector as well as in the bottling or packaging of perishable foods. In addition to sample checking, the device can also be used to continuously monitor the gas mixture of packaging machines.
