The installation of a Proseal GT2 tray sealer at the Norfolk-based factory of convenience foods specialist Kerry Foods has increased output by up to 50% and reduced gas usage by 25%.

It is being used to seal foil trays of 500g and 800g turkey joints and 500g luxury chicken joints.

Proseal says high speeds are achieved by servo-controlled pack transfer, which creates a smooth movement for trays throughout the sealing process, and self-centring pack guides, which ensure trays are accurately positioned for sealing. Automatic film snap and film end detection help maintain consistent operation.

"The improved speed and efficiencies are contributing to a fast payback," ​says Kerry Foods' maintenance manager, Bob O'Connor. "The machine is totally reliable and its seal integrity is fantastic. The only spare parts we have needed have been through expected wear and tear and it's so easy to operate."
