Flow-wrapper for field packaging of produce

Related tags: United kingdom

A flow-wrapper has been launched by Paramount Packaging Systems that has been adapted for high-speed operation on the mobile field harvesting rigs widely used by fresh produce growers.

Paramount – exclusive distributor of Fuji Machinery Co’s horizontal and vertical form-fill-seal equipment in the UK and Ireland – is now offering the Alpha VII FW3710BS/B flow-wrapper.

It is mounted on a stainless steel support frame to ensure stability and rigidity when sitting on a harvesting rig. This allows the flow-wrapper to be easily repositioned when the sides of the rig are folded up for transportation between fields. It also features an integrated ink jet coder and labeller.

Specially developed for wet environments, the flow-wrapper has an hygienic design to help prevent dust and dirt accumulation and offers easy access to the mechanical and electrical components. It meets full wash down requirements and incorporates water drainage channels from the infeed. It operates at up to 120 packs a minute.
