The next generation AQUATRAN Model 3 WVTR measurement instrument targets ultra high barrier materials that are engineered to push the performance envelope. These include flexible films for organic light-emitting diode (OLED) displays, solar panels and similar demanding applications, which require accurate and extremely sensitive instrumentation to confirm performance attributes.
The use of OLEDs for consumer electronics, such as televisions and photovoltaics for solar panels, are growing exponentially. However the electronic components within OLED displays are extremely sensitive to water vapour. The slightest exposure to humidity can cause a series of problems that significantly decrease a product's usable life. The AQUATRAN Model 3 with its easy to use interface, puts the testing capability into the hands of a wider user base.
The AQUATRAN Model 3 measures each molecule of water vapour that passes through the sensor, and requires no calibration. The response is linear throughout the entire measurable range of the sensor, so measurements of ultra barrier materials are guaranteed to be highly accurate and repeatable.

We’ve opened a new Packaging Testing Lab and fully equipped sales and service support office in Dallas Texas, to serve the flexible packaging industry in North America. The lab is equipped with significant investment in packaging testing facilities, providing a sales demonstration facility for RDM products and a contract testing lab. Our customers can now benefit from direct after sales support and calibration services for their test equipment.
Lab facilities include:
- Laboratory Heat Sealing, Seal Strength Testing and Hot Tack Testing for heat sealability studies of barrier materials.
- Friction Testers for measuring slip of flat materials such as packaging films.
- Package Integrity (Leak & Burst) testing for finished packs, such as food and medical device pouches.
- Medical Heat Sealers for sealing sterile barrier packs in cleanroom environments.
RDM manufactures testing equipment at its UK Head Office operating under ISO9001 accreditation. We welcome our new colleagues Raghav Shrivastav and Nirmohi Devasthale who graduated from the Universities of Texas and Wisconsin respectively with Masters in Engineering. They have joined our team following extensive product and application training.
