Gas-heated tunnel - Gas-heated tunnel

Cardboard multipack sleevers

Accurate laboratory tests show that, in countries where natural gas is available at convenient prices, the use of a methane fed shrink tunnel guarantees a saving of 60% (data referred to costs of electricity in Italy) compared to energy consumption of a traditional tunnel fuelled by electricity.

This pack shrinking solution, which is highly technological, eco-sustainable and with a reduced environmental can be combined with all the shrink wrappers and combined packers produced by SMI.

MAIN ADVANTAGES OF A TUNNEL FUELLED BY METHANE GAS

• reduction to costs for electricity supply

• ideal temperature is reached more quickly than the ones fuelled by electricity and the consumption of methane is minimal

• high level of safety, thanks to special sensors and systems

• reduced maintenance (the only parts that need to be replaced are the electrodes)

• it is possible to use a thinner film, thanks to improved heat distribution

• low CO₂ emissions, immediate operational availability and considerable energy savings.
