Heat sealing specialists Proseal has played a key supporting role in the development of the new production facilities at 2 Sisters’ Scunthorpe factory. The ambitious cutting and retail packing project is able to deliver 1.2 million birds per week, and it is therefore vital that every part of the line can deal with this high throughput.

Proseal’s involvement has seen the company supply 12 of its latest automatic, large capacity, high-speed GT2e inline tray sealers with free flow gas flushing for MAP (Modified Atmosphere Packaging) packs. Designed to accept randomly spaced trays from any conveyor and able to be fully integrated with other line equipment, the GT2e features Proseal’s pioneering and innovative E-seal® technology.

This high performance, high precision electric seal system delivers an increased seal force of 600% while reducing compressed air usage by 92%. This enables manufacturers to achieve the high quality seal reliability demanded of the retail sector while at the same time achieving valuable cost savings and sustainability benefits.

Another unique feature is the machine’s Pro-Motion high accuracy tray infeed system, which uses following motion and intelligent buffering technology to enable trays to feed continuously into the sealer without stopping. An auto-detect product flow monitoring system regulates the speed of the infeed conveyor according the amount of trays being supplied. This typically increases speeds by up to 30%.

Rugged Construction

proseal2october2016Like all Proseal equipment, the GT2e offers a rugged construction to food industry approved hygiene standards with full wash-down protection. The company’s established ‘Auto Tool’ connection system enables tool changes to be carried out in around five minutes, while downtime is further minimised by the use of quick-change conveyor belts, and an auto-lock film reel holder. A user-friendly menu-driven control panel provides step-by-step prompts for easy operation.

Equally important, the GT2e has the flexibility to perform any style of heat seal to a pre-formed tray, including atmospheric, MAP, VMAP, Skin, Skin Plus and Skin Deep. Customers can simply select the format types they require and these can be added to or taken off at any time. This allows food manufacturers to change their pack formats in line with customer demands without having to invest in new equipment.

Capable of up to 14 cycles per minute for gas flushing, the GT2e has the speed, flexibility and reliability to meet the requirements of 2 Sisters’ new world-class facility.
