GammaLab: Optimizing Shelf Life with MAP Technology
Designed specifically for industries using Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP), the GammaLab combines the AlphaLeakTester and the GammaTower to address the complexities of leak testing and O2 measurement. This integrated leak detection tool proves invaluable for manufacturers looking to extend the shelf life of their products while adhering to ISO 22000 and HACCP standards.
- Altitude Simulation: Worried about potential leaks during air transport? GammaLab’s got it covered. Its altitude simulation feature helps identify and tackle issues that might happen during the journey.
- Preserving Gas Composition in MAP: In the world of MAP, where the mix of gases inside the packaging helps maintain product freshness, GammaLab plays a crucial role. It ensures that the gas stays intact, preserving the product quality until the very last day of the shelf life.
ASTAARA AlphaTower: Revolutionizing Perforating Instruments
Astaara’s AlphaTower redefines perforating instruments, eliminating the need for expensive septum and needles.
This small tool can easily connect to other devices like leak detectors or analyzers for oxygen and carbon dioxide. The AlphaTower simplifies the perforation process—put the sample under the tower and move it down by hand to make it perforate automatically. It comes with a 3-year guarantee.
GammaTower: Accelerating O2 Analysis
The GammaTower, a stand-alone bench-top O2 analyzer with a perforating tower, distinguishes itself with rapid response times and cost-effectiveness.
Unlike traditional gas analyzers, the absence of tubing between the sample and the gas sensor ensures swift results. Additionally, it replaces the need for expensive septa and needles, contributing to overall cost savings.
The OLED Display (1.5″) on the front of the GammaTower provides a user-friendly interface for easy operation. Simply place the sample under the tower, adjust it manually downwards, and initiate automatic perforation. The instant availability of results enhances efficiency in quality control processes.
AlphaPro: Streamlining Assembly Line Testing
For factories handling large production volumes, the AlphaPro stands out as a fully automatic leak detection equipment dedicated to flexible packaging. This device streamlines assembly line sample testing for the food, pet care, and cosmetic industries. Designed to align with ISO 22000 and HACCP standards, the AlphaPro conducts a destructive test without any human intervention.
The AlphaPro’s automatic calibration check ensures accuracy and reliability in its performance. The built-in calibrated leak allows operators to assess the device’s flow rate at any given pressure, facilitating quick checks for recalibration if necessary. Immediate digital results, compatibility with manufacturing process control systems, and a 3-year warranty make the AlphaPro an indispensable tool for large-scale production facilities.
GammaPro: Unifying O2 Analysis and Leak Detection
Designed for MAP, GammaPro is a fully automatic leak detection equipment synchronized with a GammaTower. This powerful combination is tailored for sample testing on assembly lines in factories with high production volumes. The GammaPro excels in measuring O2 content immediately after gas injection and detecting any leaks in flexible packaging.
Similar to its counterpart, the AlphaPro, the GammaPro offers an automatic calibration check, ensuring ongoing accuracy. The seamless integration of O2 analysis and leak detection in a single device simplifies quality control processes. With immediate digital results and the capability to stop production if the packaging does not conform to preset parameters, the GammaPro proves vital in maintaining food safety and quality standards.
