Controlling oxygen is crucial to satisfying consumers and therefore, the effectiveness of closures should be a key concern for all beverage manufacturers. OxySense systems from Arrow Scientific offer the ability to perform experiments previously unthinkable due to cost, space and logistical constraints. These capabilities offer unique insights into processing, bottling and package performance.
OxySense was developed to replace expensive and destructive systems requiring penetration of the package to sample the contents. The unit's non-invasive methodology is simpler to use and multiple readings can be made on the same sample over a period of time. This reduces the number of packages needed to obtain good data for quality control while improving accuracy.
OxySense systems are also capable of rapid measurements with a high degree of accuracy.
For the wine and beverage industries, OxySense systems enable the measurement of oxygen levels in sealed bottles without extracting samples, opening or destroying bottles or closures. Both the concentration of oxygen in bottle headspace and the amount of dissolved oxygen in liquid can be measured.
