Maximum flexibility is required when setting pressure and direction of steam outlet pipes to achieve optimal sleeving application each time.
The SteamPro Tunnel is Karlville’s conventional tunnel solution, which allows customers to apply shrink sleeves to multiple types of containers, thanks to its fully adjustable pipe system within the 2 or 3 metre tunnel.
Within individually controllable zones, each separate pipe can be adjusted to match the contours of the bottle and the nozzles can be aimed at a particular angle towards the bottle. Flow control is achieved by dual spherical valves or steam skid with temperature and pressure control.
Bottles of up to 160 mm in diameter, or widths of 350 mm, can be processed, with an effective shrink height of 300 mm.
