UV light tunnel

UV light treatment is a non–thermal, non–chemical technology to inactivate microorganisms.

High pressure processing

High pressure processing

High pressure can be used not just to pasteurise food products, but also to change their characteristics.

Sous Vide

Sous Vide

Sous vide is the cooking of a vacuum–packed product at a low temperature in a water bath.

Challenge testing

Challenge testing

A challenge test is the deliberate addition of specific microorganisms to monitor their growth in a product.

Coefficient of friction

Coefficient of friction

Coefficient of Friction is a fundamental property of all materials which run on high speed printing and packaging lines.

Tensile strength

Packaging testing – tensile strength

This test is used by food manufacturers to troubleshoot seal failure problems and to investigate seal integrity versus opening strength.

Permeability analysis

Packaging testing – permeability analysis

How we test the rate at which oxygen or water vapour pass through packaging materials – an important consideration when the barrier properties are designed.

Leak detection

Packaging – leak detection

This clip illustrates how leaks can be detected in packs when troubleshooting packaging problems or as part of seal strength assessment.

Peel testing
