How to use a "sealing head to cap" gap gauge

To create consist and repeatable induction seals, it is critical to maintain a 1/8" gap between the sealing head and cap. Enercon offers a head-to-cap gap gauge; contact us for yours, free of charge. It, along with the step-by-step instructions below, will help you achieve the perfect gap for your sealing needs.

Flat and Tunnel Sealing Head > 1.5" Wide

  1. Raise the sealing head several inches above the height of the containers to be sealed.
  2. Place several capped and filled containers on the conveyor, with the caps properly torqued, in a line such that they are centered beneath the sealing head.
  3. Place the gape gauge on top of the containers and lower the sealing head until it is just touching the gap gauge.
  4. Lock the sealing head in that position, slide the gap gauge out and remove the containers.
  5. You are now ready to seal.

Tunnel Sealing Head < 1.5" Wide

  1. Raise the sealing head several inches above the height of the containers to be sealed.
  2. Place the gap gauge on the conveyor such that it’s lined up with the centerline of the sealing head.
  3. Place several capped and filled containers, with the caps properly torqued, in a line on the gap gauge.
  4. Lower the sealing head until it just touches the tops of the capped containers and lock the sealing head in that position. Remove the gauge and containers.
  5. You are now ready to seal.
