Can Piercer for Container Testing with CheckMate 3

For piercing bottle closures and can tops, allowing the user to be able to sample and analyser the headspace gas using the CheckMate 3 analyser. Automatically seals the aperture so avoiding the exchange of headspace gas with the environment. Headspace O2 and CO2 can then be measured and Nitrogen balance is calculated.

Can Piercer for Container Testing with CheckMate 3

The Dansensor Can Piercer is an option for our CheckMate 3, CheckPoint and CheckPoint II headspace analysers.

Testing the headspace gas of pressurized cans is made possible by using the optional Pressure Relief Valve Kit ( # 340178 ). It enables the user to test the headspace gas by first releasing the gas pressure in the can safely and not allowing the ingress of air into the can to contaminate the headspace prior to sampling.

The CheckMate 3 only requires a very small amount of headspace to ensure a reliable result. Please note that on its own, the CheckMate3 is not designed to test pressurised gasses and doing so may cause damage to the instrument. The CheckMate 3 with can piercer is therefore a perfect tool for measuring in cans, bottles and containers with small headspace.

The Can Piercer can, among others, be used for measuring headspace in the following packaging types:

  • Milk powder cans
  • Soft drink cans
  • Wine bottles
  • Ready to drink containers
  • PET bottles
