In this blog post, we’re reviewing a Closing option in the form of the Fischbein PILS-330 Pinch Inner-Liner Sealer (PILS) for Cap-Sac style multi-wall paper bags.
Fischbein PILS-330 Pinch Inner-Liner Sealer for Paper Bags
The Fischbein PILS-330 is a pinch inner-liner paper bag sealer designed for Cap-Sac style multi-wall paper bags. Cap-Sac bags are used when protection from moisture, air, and contaminants is needed.
The PILS-330 features a continuous sealing process that sequentially seals and perforates the bag’s inner liner, creating a bag within a bag, and then folds and seals the top of the pre-glued pinch bag.
The machine makes two separate and consecutive closures in a single pass. Operating at speeds up to 75 linear feet per minute, the PILS-330 is safe, easy to use, and can be easily integrated into semi- or fully automated bagging applications.
The PILS-330 seals the Cap-Sac bag in two stages, effectively creating a bag inside a bag. First, the PILS-330™ seals and separates the inner plastic bag from the top of the outer paper bag. Then, the PILS-330™ reactivates the bag’s pre-applied hot melt adhesive strip and automatically folds over the top of the bag forming the perfect sift-proof bag closure.
The patented breakaway design eliminates costly downtime caused by bag jams while allowing easy cleaning and service of the hot air manifold and bag folder. It’s also engineered with a high-speed, maintenance-free, direct drive system that maximizes production.
The PILS-330’s sift-proof closure makes this Cap-Sac bag style perfect for use with certain food products, food additives, dry chemicals, fertilizers, pesticides, and pet food products. It’s used where stringent sanitation must be maintained or where special standards (i.e. a clean-room environment) are required.
