Real-time Oxygen Monitoring for Modified Atmosphere Processing Now

Dallas, Texas – OxySense®, the leader in non-invasive oxygen measurement, introduces the OxySense™ MAP 1000 system, which enables real-time oxygen monitoring for modified atmosphere processing in both batch process and form, fill and seal MAP machines.

"MAP 1000 is a breakthrough for food and beverage processors, whose need has never been greater for oxygen monitoring for MAP quality control in their plants," said Peter Gerard, president and CEO of OxySense. The ability to track and document processing conditions of batches has become increasingly important due to recent food-contamination crises. MAP 1000 offers the valuable ability to monitor processing and document conditions 100 percent of the time.

Requiring no sample atmosphere extraction and therefore no extraction pumps, MAP 1000 can take and log measurements as frequently as every second; or, with batch systems, timing can be aligned to coincide with each and every flush cycle. MAP 1000 delivers rapid, well-timed measurement as well as the accuracy of the lab-proven OxySense system.

Based on the laboratory-proven OxySense 4000, MAP 1000 uses standard and proven components to provide a custom installation. The MAP 1000 system includes a factory-floor hardy master-process control unit, a separate industrial touchscreen display and the revolutionary OxySensor sensing unit, which is customized to the requirements of each installation.

"MAP 1000’s technology is designed to become an integrated, indispensable part of each processor’s control systems," explained Gerard.

Easily installed on existing lines or new installations, MAP 1000 interfaces seamlessly with line controllers and PLCs. It may also be connected directly to the plant network for data logging, processing documentation and tracking. Additionally, MAP 1000 may be configured as a direct controller to sound an alarm or shut down the machine if a reading is recorded outside the acceptable range. With no moving parts and no pumps, MAP 1000 offers high reliability and requires minimal maintenance.
