OxySense, Inc., the leader in optical oxygen testing and monitoring systems for the packaging industries, has announced the appointment of Lora Tradex Pvt. Ltd., a division of PBJ Industrial Electronics Pvt. Ltd., as its representative for the full line of OxySense systems and accessories throughout India.

Lora Tradex has been serving the packaging industries in India for more than 40 years. Headquartered in Mumbai, India, the company has nine sales and service branches located throughout the country.

“The rapidly growing Indian packaging market offers a significant opportunity for OxySense, and we are most pleased to team up with such a highly respected marketing and service partner in this key market,” says Peter Gerard, president of OxySense.

Lora Tradex will be providing full sales and technical support throughout India for the complete line of OxySense oxygen testing and monitoring equipment and systems, including its latest and most advanced generation of testing instruments, the GEN III line.

The ideal oxygen testing tool

The GEN III line of instruments provides packaging labs with an all-in-one resource for head space, dissolved oxygen, and film and container OTR/permeation testing. Its optical technology enables both non-invasive and invasive testing protocols. The GEN III product line is the ideal tool for extending and expanding a laboratory’s oxygen testing capabilities and capacity at a competitive price.

OxySense revolutionised the oxygen testing environment in 2001 with the introduction of the first commercial non-invasive oxygen measurement system based on the revolutionary Oxy2Dot®.

In 2008, OxySense introduced the OxySense Perm Chamber, the first major advance in film permeation testing in decades. The same year, the ASTM International Sub Committee F02.40 on Package Integrity (ASTM) issued its first standard for optical oxygen measurement, ASTM 2714-08, based on the OxySense technology.
