An impulse sealer is a device used to seal plastic bags and other thermoplastic materials by applying heat. This type of sealer operates on the principle of using a short burst of heat to melt the plastic together, creating a secure and airtight seal. Here's a brief overview of how impulse sealers typically work:
Power Supply: Impulse sealers are available in various sizes and configurations, but they generally require an electrical power source.
Heating Element: The sealer has a heating element, often made of Nichrome wire, which heats up when the sealer is activated.
Jaws or Sealing Bar: Impulse sealers have sealing jaws or bars that come together when the sealer is engaged. The heating element is usually embedded in these jaws.
Sealing Process: When the operator places the plastic bag or material between the sealing jaws and activates the sealer, the jaws close, and the heating element generates a short burst of intense heat.
Cooling Cycle: After the heat is applied, the sealing jaws remain closed for a brief cooling cycle. This allows the plastic to solidify and form a strong, airtight seal.
Impulse sealers are commonly used in various industries for packaging purposes, such as sealing food items, medical supplies, and other products in plastic bags. They are known for their efficiency, ease of use, and ability to create reliable seals on different types of thermoplastic materials.
