New pressure-belt system seals capless and "snap-on" containers

Release date: 2/1/2004

Successful sealing on capless and "snap-on" containers is now possible with Enercon's new pressure-belt system. This system allows induction sealing for tamper-evidence, leak protection, and freshness, to be used where it was once otherwise impossible.

Inner seals are either placed onto the capless containers or reside in the "snap-on" cap as inserted by the cap manufacturer. For capless containers the belt holds the seals in place as the containers are conveyed through the induction sealing field. Capped containers are likewise captured from above by the pressure-belt. The belt applies pressure on the top of the cap forcing the cap to hold the inner seal in place during the sealing process. The system's pressure-belt maintains contact with the seal or cap throughout the entire sealing process.

Capless application benefits include elimination of costly and high maintenance conduction, the possibility of post sealing cooling and drying, elimination of moisture build-up between seal and cap, and enhanced quality control with the possibility of leak tests on all seals.

Torque-free "snap-on" cap sealing benefits include reduced on-cap torque requirements, elimination of retorquing, and clean and efficient induction technology.

Enercon Industries Corporation headquartered in Menomonee Falls, WI , supplies a complete range of automatic and semi-automatic induction cap sealers to the packaging industry.  The company also manufacturers custom surface treating systems.
