Combined CO₂ and O₂ Meter: CboxQC™
CboxQC™ is the precise combined CO2 and O2 meter which allows reliable QC on finished packages as well as highly accurate measurements in the laboratory for product development. When combined with Anton Paar’s PFD filling device, sample is taken directly from the package into the measuring chamber of CboxQC™ – with no loss of dissolved carbon dioxide and dissolved oxygen during sample transfer. CboxQC™ for the laboratory provides reliable CO2 and O2 results, even out of very small packages.
  1. Features
  2. Specification
       -          CO2 measurement based on the patented Multiple Volume Expansion method guarantees repeatability standard deviation of 0.005 vol.

-          No influence of other dissolved gases such as air or nitrogen

-          The new high-resolution optochemical O2 sensor is accurate and achieves a repeatability standarddeviation of ±2 ppb

-          Low sample volume of around 100 mL provides reliable CO2 and O2 results, even out of very small packages

-          CO2 and O2 results after only 90 seconds

-          Intuitive user interface with clearly arranged navigation of the menu

-          Clear sample identification for full traceability of 500 measurement results

-          FillingCheck™: automatically detects fillingerrors and generates a warning message

-          System Check: guides the operator through recommended periodical checks

-          The TPO (total package oxygen) value can be calculated via Anton Paar’s free software AP-SoftPrint or by connecting to a DMA Generation M system

   -          Auto-valves: Automatically opens and closes inlet/outlet valves by only one Start or Rinsing press

   -          Rinsing Time: Use the rinsing time setting to adjust the transported sample volume for measuring, it is set between 10 and 300 seconds. After that time, inlet/outlet valves will be closed automatically, no need any press of operator

   -          Sample IDs: You can assign a sample ID to each sample. This function helps to uniquely assign measured data to samples (sample identification) and the measuring point where the sample was taken, etc. You can save up to 19 different sample IDs for full traceability of your results. Sample IDs can have up to 10 characters.

  -    Methods: The instrument is equipped with eight predefined methods and 21 additional custom methods.

Fast and wireless

-          Bluetooth interface for wireless printing

-          USB interface for data transfer to a PC


-          RFID interface for changing measurement settings quickly byreading RFID tags
