Sealing Containers through The Induction Sealing Process
These days, when it comes to sealing containers in any industry, nothing beats cap liners. These are the materials found sandwiched between the cap and the mouth of the container, forming a barrier between the contents therein and the outside world.
In a variety of businesses, these cap liners are imperative for sealing containers. It boasts a way by which international importation and exportation of goods can be achieved because it keeps the integrity of products while allowing for the rigors of handling and transportation. Without this technology, progress and innovation will be greatly impeded on an international level.
The importance of sealing containers through the use of cap liners cannot be overstated. A multitude of industries utilize these liners for the benefit of their consumers.
One of the foremost users of cap liners is the food and beverage industry. Cap liners serve to keep the product’s freshness by mitigating exposure to oxygen and moisture levels. Sealed Packaging thus proves to be important during transport and handling of said product. These liners also provide a means of tamper evidence, allaying the consumers’ fears of any untoward disruption of their purchase.
The use of tamper evidence is even more apparent in the pharmaceutical industry. Issues with tampering can be difficult to manage without cap liners because these serve as a safety tool for consumers. Therefore, any question in the minds of the people with regards to product integrity can spell disaster for the manufacturer. The importance is even more highlighted by the Food and Drug Administration’s guidelines and implementation of the use of tamper-evident seals for public safety.
Aside from these industries, a wide array of other companies make use of cap liners for sealing containers including cosmetics, agriculture and even petrol.
MeRo Induction Machines and Induction Sealing
The innovation that is induction sealing is a growing enterprise. It has paved the way for progress in many fields. One of the leading induction sealing machine businesses—MeRo—makes use of induction sealing and along them, many other operations do as well.
Induction sealing is the process by which cap liners are adhered onto the container. It begins with the cap and the liner inserted within it, coming into the production line. These components, along with the container already filled with the product, will go down the conveyor belt until they reach the induction sealing head. This part of the machine will then produce an electromagnetic field that can permeate the cap and the aluminum foil within it. This field will then generate an electric current which can melt part of the liner, adhering it firmly onto the mouth of the container. The container is then allowed to cool as it goes down the production line.
The use of induction sealing in sealing containers is trusted by consumers because of its time-proven reliability. It is able to keep the shelf-life of the product (and in some cases, extend it), while preventing leakage. It protects the product against moisture and oxygen changes in the environment and provides proof of tampering not easily achieved by other technology. With this innovation, industries are able to provide more products to more people internationally.
