Innovations Update: Continuous Gas Sampler for tna robag

Lawrence Roos, group R&D manager, tna, looks at the continuous gas sampler for the robag®
This issue, we’d like to take you through our new solution to minimise gas consumption and costs, material waste and labour time while achieving a uniform quality product in any packaging line. We’re excited to introduce the new continuous gas sampler which provides you with complete peace of mind for gas control systems ? in other words, it’s your piece of quality assurance.Checking oxygen levels is vital to ensure optimal product quality and avoid any stoppages. Performing this process manually is, however, very time consuming. But we know you still need to be able to process products quickly and efficiently to meet consumer demand as well as achieving your production goals. These include product throughput and increased energy savings. tna’s innovative continuous gas sampler can be easily integrated into the tna robag packaging system. The on-line gas analyser also offers immediate flow control, which typically reduces gas consumption by 25% to 35%. Thanks to its specially adapted former, it continuously monitors the residual oxygen level in every package.
Extensive tests and research has enabled our engineering team and industry experts to develop this automated gas flow monitoring system which stops the bagger immediately if the gas content is incorrect. This efficiency in gas flow control will also allow the reduction in the amount of excess gas in the production area. What’s more? The system’s GasSave programme can log and display actual gas consumption with QC data saved directly to a PC via the robag Modbus communication ? a perfect fit for those of you looking to save both time and money.
