GEA Slicing & Packaging line with GEA OxyCheck – Excellence in production and quality control

Historically the primary purpose of food packaging has been to protect its contents, and to ensure the food is safe to eat. Now, the aim is also to reduce the amount of packaging – and plastic in particular – while still maintaining the integrity of the pack and quality of the food. GEA has a head start with an unrivalled portfolio of packaging solutions that minimise waste but maximise protection and quality

• A non-invasive, inline quality control system that accurately measures the oxygen content in every single Modified Atmosphere Package (MAP)

• Neither the film nor the sealing is damaged, and the contents remain intact and uncontaminated. It can also be used to detect leaks in packs during production

• Available for GEA PowerPak thermoformers - either as an option on new machines or as a retrofit for existing MAP-compatible machines
