We offer two different types of heat sealers: constant and double impulse. Most of our foil gusseted bags, stand-up pouches and flat pouches can be sealed using either of the two types. Your bag width will help you determine which size heat sealer you will need (i.e. 6 inch, 8 3/4 inch, 18 inch, etc).
To seal a bag, you need the right combination of heat, pressure and dwell time. Depending on the structure of the bag you are sealing, you may need to make adjustments to the temperature and dwell time. If you have any questions, or if you would like more information, please give us a call at 800.562.2247.
Please note that all constant heat sealers come with a foot peddle & chain.
