Fruit and vegetables need oxygen to stay fresh but the respiration rate varies by variety and through the seasons making it difficult to design the optimal packaging properties.
PerfoTec supplies the equipment to quickly measure the respiration rate of fresh fruits and vegetables and the supplied software calculates the required film permeability. The PerfoTec laser systems then uses this information to adapt the film permeability through micro perforations. This helps to extend the shelf life considerably.
The patented Fast Respiration Meter® from PerfoTec measures the respiration rate of fruit and vegetables.
The supplied software calculates the required film permeability.
The patented Online Laser Perforation System® adapts the film permeability during packing and the camera checks each micro-perforation.
The shelf life of the fresh produce is extended in a natural way.
