ARPAC-Hefestus to Feature the APOLLO Rotating MAP Sealing Machine at the Pack Expo 2010 Show!

Schiller Park, IL - ARPAC - Hefestus USA will feature its APOLLO SLB(TM) with SLB(TM) Shelf Life Booster, an innovative technology for extending shelf-life of sealing trays with modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) technology at the Pack Expo 2010 Show, Booth # S-400.

A robust design yet compact footprint assures the APOLLO-SLB(TM) rotary Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) system is ideal for any food processing environment. The APOLLO-SLB(TM) can be configured in a manual format for slower to medium speed operations as well as fully automated with loading, filling, MAP sealing and discharge capability to excel in high volume production operations.

A stainless steel sanitary construction ensures the APOLLO-SLB(TM) is at home in any food packing environment. The compact rotary design is easy to operate and maintain and is suited to handle standard cups, trays and even irregular shaped containers with ease.

APOLLO-SLB(TM) uses the patented Shelf Life Booster(TM) (SLB(TM)) tray sealing, gas flush technology which is fully automated with quick change seal heads that are light weight and interchangeable with all ARPAC-Hefestus models. Product change over can be accomplished in under 15 minutes.

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!
