Packaging, and especially medical or pharmaceutical packaging, not only has to keep everything undamaged but also sterile and free from contamination.  But that is often easier said than done, as most contaminants sneak in as a vapour, which is notoriously difficult to keep out, or even to measure.

Fortunately, Versaperm’s new Permeability Meter can measure it directly – not just for water vapour, but for most other gases as well.  And it takes only around one percent of the time needed for conventional (gravimetric) measurements.   

The new version of the permeability meter can measure to an accuracy of parts per million, even parts per billion with some gases and materials.  It can be configured to measure the permeability of most gases, including water vapour, Hydrogen, Helium, Hydrocarbons, Oxygen, Nitrogen and Carbon Dioxide.

The meter can be used on huge range of materials and enclosures – from capsules to foil laminates and from blister packaging to inhalers, syringes and analytical instrument enclosures.  It can also provide measurements of substances that might otherwise be decomposed by normal measurement techniques.

As well as manufacturing the instruments, Versaperm offers a water vapour permeability laboratory service for companies that need to test samples on an irregular basis
