Excelsior Seals Dust & Contamination in Packaging Operation
HMC products located in Caledonia IL, specializes in creating packaging machines engineered and built for continuous, trouble free production. Built in America HMC machines are backed by a complete support program.
The POUCHMASTER is a horizontal form, fill, seal machine. It leads HMC’s line of American made packaging machines. The POUCHMASTER forms, fills and seals a wide variety of products in a pouch made of laminated material. Products include: soaps, powders, shampoos, trail mix, cake mixes, snack mixes, pet foods, towelettes and many others.
Excelsior provides sealing products for HMC’s Servo Auger Fillers which are integrated to various POUCHMASTER configurations or sold separately. An auger is a mechanism that uses a rotating helical screw blade, to move granular materials into a pouch. These auger fillers can be used for free or nonfree flowing powder, granules, seasonings etc. It is critical the auger filler cone is sealed properly to protect the product from contaminants and the machine and surrounding work area from product dust and residue. Excelsior provides a custom 18” OD seal that is fabricated from FDA approved rubber for this application.
In addition to the auger filler cone seal Excelsior provides HMC with a number of custom seals for multiple functions on various packaging machines.
