Skin tight solution from Proseal

10 May 2012

Proseal has further extended its range of vacuum tray sealers with the launch of a model specifically designed for skin packs

The Proseal GT1VS features a servo-driven infeed conveyor and high accuracy tray positioning system and accepts randomly spaced trays in all types of materials at sealing speeds of up to 24 packs per minute depending on the product

Skin packs feature a special film that seals to all surfaces of a tray – rim, sidewalls and base – to tightly cover the entire contents. The packs have been used predominantly for fish products in the past but are being increasing seen for other types of foods such as ready to cook meals, game, meat and sausage products, and mini joints.

Wrapping the seal around the contents means products can be vacuumed packed for extended shelf life without the need for gas flushing. At the same time, because there is no gas headspace required, tray heights can be reduced, thus saving on packaging materials.
The sealing system also means product can extend over the height of the tray. Environmental benefits include lower weight and reduced handling and storage costs for the packs, and the minimising of food waste.
