All About The Sealers
The demand for sterilized medical supplies is high. The different medical companies are working to provide the ever growing market with quality and safe medical and dental products. As they focus on developing new and improved products, the pressure to maintain the required safety measure builds. Most of them are faced with the challenge of buying the right sealer.
The selection of the perfect medical sealer is critical as this is what will determine the quality of your products. There are different types of sealers that you can choose from. It is thus important for you to know their features and how they work if you are going to make the perfect choice.
The gas flush sealer is usually used to remove and eliminate any presence of oxygen in the pouch before sealing them. This is what will keep the medical supplies safe and maintain their quality.
Types Of The Sealers
The sealers, even though they have top notch technology, they are some that are manually operated. This means that you will be required to put the medical bags over the sealer for them to be sealed. The sealers generally have a foot pedal or a foot switch that enables you to operate the machines. No matter the type of seal you choose, you should ensure that you maintain the quality and consistency of the seal. This is what will keep the packages sterilized.
1. Impulse Heat Sealers
This medical sealer usually releases timed impulse of electricity current that runs through the medical pouches thus sealing them. The sealing process occurs within seconds. This design usually uses either thermal couple based or current/ resistance based control system.
These designs have great advantages;
· They are not costly, comparing to the other designs.
· They have the ability to handle different medical materials.
· They are quick to start up.
As great as they are, the impulse heat sealers have their own set of challenges.
· They have a high maintenance, which can be a challenge.
· The machines calibration can be hard to achieve.
2. The Constant Heat Sealers
These machines usually produce heat that is applied to the seal die constantly and in a consistent manner. The machine usually uses a combination of one aluminum die and non heated silicon rubber or two heated aluminum dies. These machines are ideal for you if you are working with metalized films or plastic materials.
· They are low maintenance.
· It is very easy to validate and calibrate the machine.
· It produces quality seals.
· Does not perform well on high volume and high speed applications.
3. Continuous Band Sealers
They are ideal for larger volume applications. The machine uses bands to seal the pouches. Their greatest advantage is that they can perform even on the narrow medical pouches. On the down side, just like the gas flush sealer, the operator controls the speed of the machine. Because of this, the quality of the seals is reduced as the machine sometimes produces wrinkled and crooked seals.
