|Port Size||1/8 inch metal tubing|
The pre-conditioned specimen is mounted between the upper and lower chambers at ambient atmospheric pressure. One chamber contains oxygen or air and the other chamber is slowly purged by a stream of nitrogen. Due to the concentration difference between the two chambers, oxygen molecules permeate through the specimen into the nitrogen side and are taken to the coulometric sensor where proportional electrical signals are generated. The oxygen transmission rate is then obtained by analyzing and calculating the signals. For package samples, high purity nitrogen flows inside the package, and oxygen or air flows outside.

This instrument can be used to test permeability of plastic fuel tanks
This instrument can be used to test oxygen transmission rate of battery plastic shell
The instrument uses high precision trace oxygen transmitter with Labthink’s exclusive core control technology which can insulate external interference and reduce signal attenuation so that the instrument can test oxygen in a wide test range with high resolution and sensitivity. The instrument supports multiple test modes, which can be used to test materials with high, medium and low barrier properties.
The instrument is based on the equal pressure method and adopts Labthink’s second generation patent design of three diffusion cells integrated in one instrument, which improves the test resolution, repeatability and performance in temperature and humidity control.
The instrument is embedded with Labthink’s latest operating software, which is featured with user-friendly interface, intelligent data processing, strict user management and secure data storage. It also supports Labthink exclusive DataShieldTM Note4 (Optional) which provides the users with safe and reliable management of test data and test reports.
Note 1: The parameters in the table are measured by professional operator in Labthink laboratory according to relative requirements for laboratory standard conditions.
Note 2: The described product features, test standards and configurations should be in line with Table 1: Test Parameters.
Note 3: The instrument has such software function but the satellite base shall be purchased separately.
Note 4: DataShieldTM provides safe and reliable data application support. Multiple Labthink instruments can share one single DataShieldTM system which can be purchase as required.
