Modified Atmosphere Packaging Leak Detection

Source: Emerson
Modified Atmosphere Packaging Leak Detection Modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) is a process developed to extend the shelf life of fresh food products. MAP substitutes the air inside the package with a protective gas mix. The advantage of MAP is that it slows down the chemical reactions that cause product deterioration, which results in a shelf life 2 to 5 times greater than packages with regular air. Companies that use MAP are often required to meet strict quality standards and test 100% of all packages moving through the product line. More importantly, it can improve product quality and eliminate customer complaints due to spoilage caused by leaks in the packaging.
