Sealer launched for very large trays

Related tags: Tray sealer, Packaging

Heat sealing specialist Proseal has introduced a new tray sealer specifically designed to handle very large food trays. The GT5exSD can seal trays up to 400mm wide, making it ideal for handling large cuts of meat and joints. Top speeds for the single lane machine are up to 40 skin pack trays a minute.

The tray sealer is fully flexible and adaptable to handle any type of packing operation, including modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) gas flushing, vacuum MAP sealing, skin packaging below and above the flange, and 'skin deep'. Users can simply select the format types they require and these can be added to or taken off at any time. This allows food manufacturers to change their pack formats in line with customer demands without having to invest in new equipment.

Maximum throughput is achieved thanks to Proseal's Pro-Motion system, which uses following motion and intelligent buffering technology to enable trays to feed continuously into the sealer without stopping. An auto-detect product flow monitoring system regulates the speed of the infeed conveyor according to the amount of trays being supplied. This typically increases speeds by up to 30%.

Proseal's E-seal technology, meanwhile, provides high-quality seal reliability to meet retailers' stringent quality requirements while delivering a 92% reduction in energy use, which offers valuable cost savings and sustainability benefits. Equally important, the machine boasts an hygienic design.
