Highest Sensitivity for the Most Demanding Applications

Companies around the world depend on MOCON permeation data to make decisions critical to product development and product quality. Ultra-high barrier materials may have long test times, but these tests don’t have to stress your labor resources.

The AQUATRAN Model 3 water vapor permeation instrument is designed specifically to increase your lab’s efficiency, streamline your operations, and improve throughput. Your operators will now spend less time setting up and monitoring permeation tests, allowing them to achieve more in less time.

A new user interface and increased automation make testing easier than before with less skill required, reducing the costs associated with training new employees or transitioning responsibilities within your company. In certain applications, starting a new test may be as simple as a single press of a button. Your operators can now pre-program a variety of tests and different conditions and run them sequentially without operator intervention, resulting in less instrument inactivity.

Uses the Patented AQUATRACE® Sensor Technology
Electrolytic Detection Sensor (Coulometric P2O5 Sensor)
Complies with ASTM F3299-18

Using a patented coulometric sensor, the AQUATRAN Model 3 provides the most precise and repeatable water vapor permeation data available on the market today. This sensor is a unique coulometric phosphorous pentoxide sensor that is absolute and follows Faraday’s law, therefore requiring no calibration.

Application Solutions

The AQUATRAN Model 3 is available with a wide variety of customer diffusion cells and accessories to support many unique applications. These components provide flexibility to test more sample types, including whole packages and assemblies, at a wider range of test conditions, including 85°C and 85% RH when controlled by an external environmental chamber. Ask your MOCON representative for a PermAUDIT to help determine the best solution for you.
