Fresh Produce needs a certain amount of oxygen to respire at a lower rate. At this lower rate the shelf life is longer compared to the shelf life when the produce respires at normal rate. By knowing the respiration rate of your product, you have a tool to optimize your packaging. This optimization can be in type of film, film thickness, flush conditions and/or the size and number of laser perforations per package.
The innovative Fast Respiration Meter measures the respiration rate of your fresh produce within 4 hours. Upload the measured respiration rates, add produce and packaging properties and calculate the number of perforations per pack.
