Heat Seal Tester
For many products, the impact of packaging on shelf life and product safety is critical to success. Packaging technical teams will carefully specify packaging material characteristics in terms of functional and barrier properties, for example, the oxygen transmission rate for an oxygen-sensitive product. Despite this, the highest risk to pack integrity and shelf life can be failures in the pack heat seals or closures.
Heat seal parameters are easily measured, Heat Sealability = Temperature + Pressure + Time. Yet maintaining optimum heat sealing conditions in production and recognising the true cause of poor sealing remains a challenge.
Saicheng Heat seal tester (Laboratory heat sealer) is to determine the suitable sealing parameters (Sealing Temperature, Dwell Time and Pressure) for materials.
Saicheng heat seal tester is widely used in the plastic industry and designed for accurate and repeatable measurement heat sealability of flexible packaging. Produces seals up to 330mm long and 10mm wide. Independent temperature control of the upper and lower jaws gives multiple combinations of test conditions.
