Shrink Wrap Tunnels
Consistent shrink wrapping
Shrink tunnels requires accurate temperature control and a good, adjustable air flow to produce consistent packs – vital when you require retail display standard packaging.
For this reason, a YPS Supplied shrink wrap tunnel uses excellent adjustable air flow, coupled with extremely accurate temperature control to produce high quality, consistent shrink wrapped packs.
Variable speed shrink tunnels
The speed of the shrink tunnel conveyor is variable on all models. This enables you to set the shrink tunnel speed to meet the specific production rate required, resulting in optimum shrink wrapped pack presentation.
Roller conveyor tunnel systems
The most suitable shrink tunnel conveyor for use with display polyolefin shrink films such as PVC and Polyolefin, is a roller conveyor system. This allows maximum air flow to the underside of the pack, providing high quality, consistent results.
With the roller conveyor packaging system, the shrink tunnel conveyor rollers also rotate to transfer the product along the conveyor. This means that the pack actually travels faster than the shrink tunnel conveyor itself.
It also means that no single part of the underside of the pack is in constant contact with the shrink tunnel belt and therefore no markings are left on the underside of the pack. This is important for many display shrink wrapping applications and provides a clear advantage over cheaper, mesh belt systems.
Polythene specification shrink wrap tunnels
We can also supply polythene specification shrink tunnels. These shrink tunnels utilise a heavy duty steel mesh belt for pack stability, coupled with under belt and after pack coolers.
These shrink tunnels are supplied with side chains on the shrink tunnel belt to ensure that the belt can never stretch, which can occur in cheaper friction drive systems.
High speed shrink tunnels
For applications where shrink wrapping speeds in excess of 50 packs per minute are required, we provide a range of double chamber shrink tunnels, with two independently controlled chambers.
Stainless steel shrink wrap tunnels
All shrink tunnel equipment in this range is available in stainless steel, for applications such as the food or dairy industry where extremely high levels of hygiene are demanded.
