    Meter Water Vapor Permeability, Mocon Permatran W3/31

    This equipment measures the water vapor transmission rate from flat films, providing measurements for complying with standards such as ASTM F-1249, TAPPI T557 and JIS K-7129. The system is designed to evaluate barrier materials used in different applications, above all in food packaging. It uses a patented system of infrared sensors modified to detect the transmission of water vapor over time, in a range of 0.01-1200 g/m²*day.

    Workplace: Department of Food Sciences and Technology, Packaging Laboratory, University of Santiago, Obispo Manuel Umaña #050.
