Oxygen absarobers are revolutionized to increase the shelf life of dehydrated food; the existence of oxygen reduces the storage life of food and causes oxidative deterioration. The small packets of o-busters are made of material that is containing an iron powder and salt, which is not allowed to enter oxygen and moisture. Oxygen absorbers perform their action though a chemical reaction process. When all the iron powder has oxidized, the oxygen absorbers are stops the absorbing action.
Each packet of oxygen absorbers contains a light pink capsule. This capsule turns to a light blue color when packet is opened.
The oxygen supports the growth of bacteria, fungi, odors and causes changes in color of packaged foods. Thus, the food safe pouches are place on the foods; they will not harm the food with reducing the aerobic environment to 0% oxygen and aerobic bacteria are unable to grow in this environment. Oxygen absorbers are remove oxygen more effectively than vacuum packaging.
All absorber packets are used within 10-15 minutes for an extra margin of safety after opening the package, so as any absorber packets that will not be used within an approximately 15 minutes. Each of our packets is contain 50-3000 cc oxygen absorber packets. Each packet measures approximately 2.25″ x 3″ x 1/8″. Our oxygen absorber packets are actually designed to absorb more than twice as much oxygen as what they are rated.
The number of oxygen absorbers are required a number of factors:
- The “cc” size of oxygen absorber packet you are using
- The volume of the packaging container
- The altitude & dimension of the packaging
- Require the packaging container – box or bags
- The density of food item you are packaging. By doing this match, you can perceive that one 500cc absorbers are easily do the job
- Quantity of packaging materials
- Void space of container.
