Packing raw materials

Food safety is gaining in importance how can packing contribute to quality?

Safety packaging in food industry

In this solutions we focus at the characteristics and unique features of the Power Sealer and how the product comes into its own in the packaging of end products, semi-manufactured products and raw materials in the food products market.

Food safety is gaining in importance. Consumers are becoming increasingly critical and errors can have a significant impact on a company’s reputation; whilst on the other hand, the number of links from manufacturer to end consumer is only increasing. Packaging is an important aspect within food safety. Packaging needs to protect food products against external influences, helping to combat decay in the process. Packaging also contributes to the perceived quality of the product. With the Power Sealer, Audion Packaging Machines is providing a high-quality and tried-and-tested system for packaging food products.

Power Sealer versus vacuum chamber

The Power Sealer is mainly used when packaging food products that don’t require a high vacuum. A high vacuum is a vacuum of almost 100% and the Power Sealer packs products under a vacuum of 60% to 70%. To create a high vacuum, Audion Packaging Machines has solutions in the form of vacuum chambers. The choice between a high vacuum and low air packaging has mainly to do with the food product, semi-manufactured product or raw material that is to be packed. Certain products are not suitable for packaging in high vacuum using vacuum chambers. The removal of all oxygen would distort a soft or fragile product in such a way that it would become unsellable and therefore worthless. The vacuum cycle of the Power Sealer is faster than that of a vacuum box, as only the bag has to be vacuumed and not the complete chamber. The Power Sealer is often used for the bag-in-box and big-bag packaging of products.

Versions of the Power Sealer

Audion has designed several versions and sizes of the Power Sealer for food industry. The Power Sealer can be constructed in a version with a nozzle for vacuum and modified atmosphere packaging or without this nozzle for just sealing. Especially important for the food industry is that the Power Sealer always comes in stainless steel. Also available in IP65 and heat seal versions.

Power Sealer with temperature-controlled sealing system

The Power Sealer with temperature-controlled sealing system is essential to obtain a consistent quality seal even during intensive use. In the food sector in particular, we can see that there is plenty of demand for temperature controlled sealing processes. When packaging food products in liquid or powder form, the surface of the seal may become contaminated (which may affect the sealing process). By using a 8 mm seal width temperature-controlled sealing system, together qit a robust stainless steel body, quality is ensured.

A few benefits of a temperature-controlled sealing system rather than an impulse-controlled sealer include:

  • Constant seal quality even during intensive use
  • Constant seal quality regardless of who is operating the sealer
  • Constant seal quality for materials that are difficult to seal
  • Constant seal quality for products that could contaminate the seal (such as powder)

 

Vacuum and modified atmosphere packaging

The vacuum and modified atmosphere process involving nitrogen, oxygen or carbon dioxide nitrogen, for example, takes place in the Power Sealer by means of a single nozzle integrated in the machine. This nozzle comes in a range of sizes, depending on the required solution.
