Oxygen Absorber Food Preservation

The ATCO oxygen absorbers are used for the preservation of particularly oxygen-sensitive materials in gas-tight containers. The extremely oxygen-poor atmosphere prevents the growth of aerobic microorganisms and can also be used for gentle control of pests. At higher volumes, nitrogen is first flooded and the atmosphere is then kept oxygen-free with ATCO. ATCO oxygen absorbers are available as separate bags and on reels. In an airtight enclosure, which is typically used for high-density barrier films, the oxygen content falls below 0.01% within a few hours.
