Absortech Australia now offers a range of oxygen absorbers for protecting your products from damage due to oxidization.
Oxygen Absorber Function
The main function of the oxygen absorbers is to remove oxygen and carbon dioxide in a closed container. An oxygen free environment can be reached within 24 hours at normal temperature.
Oxygen absorbers can be used for a wide range of snack and food products. Examples include:
- Seeds, nuts and dried fruits
- Beef jerky and dried foods
- Pet foods
- Breads, cakes, cookies and other bakery goods
- Herbs, tea and tobacco
How to calculate the quantity of oxygen absorbers to be used?
Oxygen volume (cc) = [package length (cm) X width (cm) X height (cm) – food weight (grams)] X 20%.
The package should be completely sealed with PET, nylon or other high barrier material. The package should have an oxygen permissibility rate which is lower than 20 CC per square meter per day.
