"Plexus SM has the specific performance characteristics that make it excellent in use in a scavenger system. And, it is able to function in this capacity faster, more efficiently and more cost effectively than current scavenger system materials," Gould said.
Plexus SM, developed and introduced by Aldine Technologies co-inventer of the original tea bag, provides the basis of a new and highly effective scavenger system for the removal of moisture and gases from the packaged environment.
One goal was to increase the operating range of the barrier filter which, along with a pre-cleaning scavenger system, keeps the turbine intake free of dirt.
Under mock dental treatment conditions, the Porter/Brown scavenger system reduced ambient [N.sub.2]O levels over the time of [N.sub.2]O delivery to levels below those recommended by the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (50 ppm).
At every occasion during the procedure, the Porter/Brown scavenger system left the operatory with significantly less [N.sub.2]O than any of the other scavengers tested.
Transparent Ultem resin forms the reservoir of the gas scavenger system. Finally, durable Valox resin provides exceptional chemical resistance for horizontal surfaces-the top shelf and work area-that are exposed to a variety of cleaners, and the cassette bay that comes in contact with anesthesia agents.
To achieve these goals, GE Healthcare sought a materials supplier that could efficiently meet diverse application requirements ranging from chemical resistance for work surfaces, light weight for drawer doors, and transparency for the gas scavenger system. GE Plastics was able to supply multiple from its diverse product portfolio to meet these needs while providing value-added services such as material selection and application development support.
The published findings provide clear evidence that both the oil and its active ingredients, in particular TQ, possess reproducible anti-oxidant effects through enhancing the oxidant scavenger system, which as a consequence lead to antitoxic effects induced by several insults.
Solid growth for oxygen-scavenger bottles will be based on heightened demand for less costly monolayer scavenger systems, which will drive usage with single-serving bottles for beverages such as hot-fill juices and teas.
