With the aim of meeting demand from food processors for quick and energy-efficient meat and vegetable produce packing, ULMA Packaging UK says that it has developed one of the fastest traysealers on the market.

ULMA’s TSA traysealer range has reportedly been tested to prove a capability of 20 cycles/min for modified atmosphere packaging (MAP). In cut and seal applications this increases to 25 cycles/min.

In an effort to help reduce energy outputs, The TSA range has been developed with a single 300m3/h vacuum pump, which apparently differentiates it from others on the market that often require two pumps.

The traysealer can also integrate into existing packaging machinery lines, including single and double lines, with box or tray distribution and palletising. According to ULMA, further advantages of the range include a powerful 10 tonnes of sealer force, for guaranteed safe hermetic sealing, achieving low residual oxygen levels of between 0.1 and 0.2%.

Dave Berriman, technical sales support manager at ULMA Packaging UK, commented: “As a business, we know it is important to keep providing value by redeveloping our market-leading packaging machinery solutions. As a result of this commitment to innovation, processors can achieve even better traysealing performance and reap the time and energy-saving benefits.

“All TSA models are also equipped with our UPC 4.0 control system, allowing for further efficiency measurement and optimisation, and the possibility of remote servicing, which is a key priority while social distancing continues to affect in-person technical training and assistance.”
