The installation of a Proseal GT2 tray sealer at the Attleborough factory of convenience foods specialist Kerry Foods is reported to have increased output by up to 50% and reduced gas usage by 25% to deliver a very fast payback on investment.

The GT2 is being used for the MAP sealing of foil trays of 500g and 800g turkey joints and 500g luxury chicken joints supplied to a number of leading retailers.

The GT2 offers high speeds thanks to features such as servo-controlled pack transfer, which creates a smooth movement for trays throughout the sealing process, and self-centring pack guides, which ensure trays are accurately positioned for sealing.

Other useful features to help maintain consistent operation include automatic film snap and film end detection.
