ThermoPoint steam tunnel is easy to use and maintain and also decreases downtime by facilitating fast changeover between products.
ThermoPoint is available in three or six zone configurations and each of the tunnel’s heat zones can be independently adjusted to deliver steam to the label or band at different rates, heights, and angles. This level of precision leads to improved control of the shrink process and ultimately to higher quality, consistency, and throughput.
Heat zone graduated dials and steam injector adjustment indicators not only enable precise control of the process, but also ensure repeatability between batches.
