Highlighted at the show, a new steam shrink tunnel, includes an integrated Reimers compact steam boiler that provides a plumbed and complete steam tunnel system, eliminating the need to install a separate costly and remote boiler. Each run is adjustable for steam flow and position so adjustments can be made without waiting for the tunnel to cool. Steam regulation is key to consistency in shrinking, so the system precisely regulates steam flow. This tunnel includes a stainless-steel vent manifold with adjustable dampers to closely regulate the steam exhaust drawn from the tunnel. Reimers boilers can uniformly shrink a range of films, including polyvinyl chloride, PETG, oriented polystyrene, and polylactic acid.
The boiler mounts under existing conveyors. Reimers boilers Electric Steam Boilers are manufactured in the USA About Reimers Electra Steam using high-quality stainless steel and standard, readily-available components.
