Systech Illinois, a global brand of moisture and oxygen analyzers and part of the Industrial Physics Product Integrity segment, announced the latest generation of its proven Lyssy L80 water vapor permeation analyzers. The Lyssy L80-6000 claims to offer cost-effective, high accuracy testing for manufacturers of packaging films and high permeability fabrics and non-wovens.

Systech Illinois is the marketing name for sister companies, Systech Instruments in the UK, and Illinois Instruments in the US. Systech Illinois manufactures high sensitivity, trace oxygen and moisture sensors and systems for measuring gas transfer rates in packaging materials, modified atmosphere gas detection, and analysis and process gas applications. As an industry-standard throughout the world, Systech Illinois offers high sensitivity and repeatable test systems to meet the needs of plastic, food, pharmaceutical, medical, and industrial clients.

The L80-6000 features a new 5.7-inch touchscreen display and intuitive interface for ease of use, automated sample clamping for test consistency, and computer-controlled and programmable test parameters to eliminate differences caused by operator input. Due to its high accuracy and wide measuring range, the L80-6000 can advance higher quality production in applications like surgical and hygienic membranes, wound dressing, diaper materials, and construction membranes. The state-of-the-art humidity sensor is located directly in the measuring chamber. Since no carrier gas or extractive measuring technique is used, it claims to offer the best reproduction of real-life conditions.

The L80-6000 alternates quickly and easily between low and high permeability measurements. The built-in temperature control eliminates the need for an external control unit. In addition, the preparation of a sample for the L80-6000 is accomplished in minutes with Systech Illinois’ self-adhesive sample cards; no grease or glue is required, according to Systech.

“The L80 series of analyzers have been used successfully for decades around the world. The Lyssy L80-6000 provides the same reliable and cost-effective water vapor permeability testing in an enhanced, modern system,” said Alan Shema, director of Global Sales for Industrial Physics Product Integrity segment. “It offers a high degree of automation to ensure lab productivity without sacrificing quality and accuracy.”

Systech Illinois is a global brand of moisture, gas, and oxygen analyzers and has been providing products and technical solutions for more than 30 years. The latest addition Lyssy L80-6000 complies with the ASTM E378 and EDANA NWSP 070.6.R0 (20) standards.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
