Industrial Physics adquiere OxySense y PetroSense
- Industrial Physics, líder en servicios e instrumentación de pruebas de integridad de productos y paquetes, ha comprado OxySense, Inc. y PetroSense Inc. OxySense se especializa en sistemas ópticos no invasivos de medición de oxígeno y soluciones de prueba de permeación para empacadores y procesadores en todo el mundo. PetroSense proporciona sistemas disponibles comercialmente para la detección de hidrocarburos de petróleo totales. Ambas empresas tienen su sede en Dallas, TX, con una planta de fabricación compartida en Las Vegas. Los productos de las marcas OxySense y PetroSense * ahora forman parte del segmento de Integridad de productos de Industrial Physics, que, junto con los productos de Systech Illinois y TM Electronics, ofrece una cartera completa de soluciones a los clientes que miden la resistencia y durabilidad de los envases críticamente sellados para confirmar la integridad del paquete. y vida útil.
“The OxySense and PetroSense products are strong additions to the Industrial Physics family of brands,” said Doug Lindemann, president of Product Integrity. “The OxySense brand strengthens our offerings in package integrity determination and supports our strategy to be the leading test and measurement company in the flexible packaging industry. PetroSense brings a differentiated offering for companies concerned with environment monitoring.”
“OxySense was the first company to provide non-destructive, optical solutions to assess product quality in packaging,” said Ken Culver, President of OxySense. “We have established a strong and loyal customer base by providing cost-effective, solutions-based products for many years. It is great to see the potential for growth that will be possible with the involvement of the Industrial Physics companies and resources.”
OxySense is the leading source of non-invasive oxygen measurement systems and permeation testing solutions for packers and processors worldwide. OxySense optical oxygen analyzers, oxygen permeation measurement/OTR system and oxygen measurement accessories serve the needs of packaging labs, packaging quality control labs, processors and packagers. The OxySense oxygen measurement system is unique for its ability to measure oxygen non-invasively, and its ability to measure oxygen in headspace as well as dissolved in liquids. It is an optical system that can measure oxygen concentration within packages that are transparent, semi-transparent, and translucent.
PetroSense offers the only commercially available system that can detect both the presence and concentration of total petroleum hydrocarbons and benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene and xylenes in vapor and in dissolved water on a real time basis in the field. Environmental applications include process water monitoring, cooling tower discharge water monitoring, aquifer monitoring, well monitoring, soil testing, leak detection, above ground and below ground tank monitoring, pipelines and valve stations.
*The PetroSense brand/products and business have since been terminated.
