The MAP Check 3 Vacuum now offers process control and traceability data to help support the latest food safety protocols. The gas analyzer is ideal for a wide variety of modified-gas food packaging applications including meat, poultry, fish and baked goods. It continuously measures gas content of the packages before they are sealed. As the packaging machine is running, MAP Check 3 Vacuum takes a gas sample directly from the sealing die and gives an average reading of the residual oxygen, and optional carbon dioxide, for every cycle. If the gas levels approach the preset limit, MAP Check 3 Vacuum will notify the operator. If the limits are exceeded, the packaging machine will be automatically stopped. The machine has full data logging capabilities, USB and Ethernet connectivity, and provides the on-line process control and quality assurance.
