)-- Systech Illinois, a leading manufacturer of permeation analysers and gas analysis equipment, has been chosen by San Pellegrino to test the oxygen permeation of their plastic bottles.
Based in the Province of Bergamo, Lombardy, Italy, San Pellegrino mineral water is recognized globally as one of the leading mineral waters on the market. The taste of San Pellegrino is acquired during 30 years of natural filtering through Dolomitic rocks, which gives it a richness and balance of mineral salts. The sparkling version was created by adding natural CO2 to balance the light aftertaste due to the mineral content with the right level of carbonation.
During the bottling process, numerous controls are carried out to ensure and maintain the quality of the mineral water. San Pellegrino utilise the Systech Illinois 8700 analyser to test the oxygen permeation of their plastic bottles. This analysis assists San Pellegrino in meeting the high demand of shelf life requirements. The 8700 Oxygen Permeation Analyser is extremely versatile, capable of measuring wide ranges of oxygen permeability. It can complete up to 11 sample tests simultaneously and provide data in a very short time of between 3-12 hours.
The Technical Manager at San Pellegrino said; "After the first 4 months of use in the laboratory, the technicians who work in my team have found that the instrument is easy to use and it showed excellent stability in the results.”
