Sensor for Modified Atmosphere FIBCs
Every year, more than 200 million FIBCs are filled with food for storage and transport. Products must be kept in the ideal conditions to maintain their quality from production up to packaging, storage, and delivery. By controlling oxygen levels during packaging and continuously monitoring the conditions in each package, food manufacturers can benefit from less waste within their supply chain, where up to 40% of the food waste occurs.
Remote monitoring of conditions inside each modified atmosphere bag to prevent waste
The Modified Atmosphere Sensor, from Somsix, is a monitoring device for oxygen levels and other conditions inside bulk packages. The device is available in 3 monitoring categories. The first category is called modified atmosphere (MA) sensors for FIBCs. It features remote monitoring of oxygen, temperature, and humidity wherever the FIBCs are located. The second category is a custom sensor, which monitors specific data or packaging applications based on client requests, while the third category is called basic manual probe, where a probe and a set of MA sensors are used for monitoring.
These sensors are mainly developed to allow monitoring of modified atmospheric conditions inside the packages in the most non-invasive and cost-effective way. All sensor caps are easy to install, provide accurate analysis, and monitor each bag every 6 hours. Data collected are sent directly to the operator through a software portal. The monitoring system also allows certification of product quality from departure to arrival.
