Premium OxyFree Oxygen Absorbers - 20cc usually used with our 6cmx8cm or 10cmx15cm zip lock Mylar bags to offer a long term storage solution. As always, packed in factory master vacuum sealer bag.
Packed in 200pcs per factory vacuum sealed bag (and multiples of 200 for larger quantities) the OxyFree brand 20cc oxygen absorbers include OxyEye inside each pack to ensure freshness, OxyFree is a USA brand and the leading oxygen absorber brand worldwide.
Oxygen absorbers remove oxygen from the air, when one of these 20cc oxygen absorbers is placed inside one of our foil bags and sealed, the oxygen within the bag is removed. The capacity of oxygen removal of these oxygen absorbers matches the 6x8cm Mylar bags or 10cm x15cm zip lock bags we also supply. They can also be used inside vacuum sealer bags and just heat seal, enabling crushable items not to be crushed for example
OxyFree packs are factory sealed in a master vacuum bag of 200pcs (you will receive multiple packs for larger orders) along with an OxyEye colour indicator to guarantee freshness. Please select your required pack size from the dropdown menu.
Actual size of the 20cc oxygen absorber is: 3cm x 4cm
This brand of oxygen absorbers are used in the M&S beef jerky pack, they are food grade & safe to be in contact with food and of a great quality.
After opening the pack and using what you need straight away, the remainder should be kept in a airtight mason jar, vacuum sealed or heat sealed in the bag they came in. This allows you to store the remaining oxygen absorber sachets without having to worry about them being exposed to the oxygen in the air once you have opened the vacuum sealed pack.
Our oxygen absorbers are of the highest quality available, t hey are not the cheaper paper variety that are widely available, they are made of Tyvek type plastic which comprises of flash spun high density polyethylene fibres. This higher quality oxygen absorber offers much greater protection, for example if the product you are sealing has any fat content the plastic does not degrade and allow transfer through, unlike the paper encased equivalent. (Although it is not recommended using Foil bags with products that have high fat/moisture levels.)
Oxygen Absorbers remove oxygen from the Mylar bags to below 0.01%. They work by when exposed to air, the iron in the sachet quickly starts to absorb the oxygen and breaks it down into harmless iron-oxide which is safely contained in the packet and does not contaminate the food. Each of these 20cc oxygen absorber is designed to treat up to 0.24kg void of product and are well over specified for their application.
It is normal for a partial vacuum to be created within 24 hours of the oxygen absorbers being sealed within the Mylar bag, as the 20% oxygen in the air inside the Mylar bag is removed.
Q. What is an OxyEye
A. An OxyEye is a colour changing sachet packed inside the master vacuum sealed bag along with the oxygen absorbers, the OxyEye is pink when the oxygen absorbers have not been exposed to air (oxygen) and are ready to use. The OxyEye turns blue/purple if the master vacuum sealed bag has been damaged and air (oxygen) has then already used up the oxygen absorbers capacity. So in summary the OxyEye is a good indicator of the oxygen absorbers freshness.
Good news! All our 20cc oxygen absorbers contain an OxyEye for your peace of mind.
