ARPAC-Hefestus to Demonstrate the ATHENA SLB(TM) Semi-Automatic MAP Sealing Machine at the Process Expo 2010 Show, Booth # 12028!

Schiller Park, IL - ARPAC - Hefestus USA will feature its ATHENA SLB(TM) Semi-Automatic MAP Sealing Machine with SLB(TM) Shelf Life Booster, an innovative technology for extending shelf-life of sealing trays with modified atmosphere (MAP) technology at the Process Expo 2010 Show, Booth # 12028.

The ATHENA SLB(TM) has an ergonomic pull out drawer where an operator can easily load the desired tray or cup. The operator then pushes the drawer into the seal head where the MAP and seal process is fully automatic, ensuring best results every time. Multiple seal heads can be used for various trays, changeover is tool-less and can be accomplished in under 10 minutes.

With a robust design, yet compact footprint, the ATHENA SLB(TM) hand fed Modified Atmosphere Packaging system is ideal for small and medium packers and is a handy addition for large producers as well. A stainless steel sanitary construction ensures the ATHENA SLB(TM) is at home in any food packing environment. Extremely compact and attractively priced, the ATHENA SLB(TM) is also ideal for R&D by academic, medical, agricultural and food packaging research institutions.

SLB(TM) uses no vacuum yet it can achieve residual oxygen levels of less than 1% and does it faster than current MAP systems. This innovative new packaging technology is therefore safe for any food product and can increase shelf life of these products!
