  Working Principles
Click to ViewThe Modified Atmosphere Package environment is formed from a finely balanced mix of normal atmospheric gases. The finely balanced gas mix by MAP Mix9001-3/200B slows down the product aging process to reduce colour loss, odour and off-taste resulting from product deterioration, spoilage and rancidity caused by mold and other anaerobic organisms. A carefully controlled Modified Atmosphere Package achieves and maintains an optimal respiration rate to preserve the fresh colour, taste and nutrient content of red meat, seafood, minimally processed fruits and vegetables, pasta, prepared foods, cheese, baked goods, cured meats and dried foods throughout an extended shelf life. The gas mixing unit works on proportional gas mixing principle and has accuracy of better than± 2% absolute within a flow range of 15-100% and mix settings of 10-90%.

  Applications
  User Instructions
1. R& D organizations 2. Packaging Industries 3. Fresh Fruits and Vegetable Processing Units 4. Meat Processing Industries 5. Hotels and Food Restaurants 6. Agro Processing Units 7. Small scale Enterprise 1. For MAP Packaging, the sample should be packed in gas mixture ratio as per recommendations of scientific literature. 2. Sealing temperature of the packaging film (for tray cover/bag packaging) should be known prior to sealing the commodity.
