PETSense
 Ion-Molecule Reaction - Mass Spectrometer

General

The PETSense offers a single  Ion-Molecule Reaction Mass Spectrometer (IMR-MS) and is designed for fast and exact identifcation of contaminated refillable PET bottles.

The PETSense analyzer is a so callled "RefPET-Sniffer" and has to be integrated into a master system. Usually we sell our PETSense analyzers as an OEM product through our partner Krones AG and they name their final product Aircontronic.
