Sales Opportunity: Bag Sealing Technology

  • June 25, 2014

Improving Bag Sealing Technology with More Customizable Products

With our fast paced society, consumer packaging is a vital component of contemporary living. Analysts forecast the Global Flexible Packaging market to grow at a CAGR of 4.95% from now until 2018. A key factor for this industry growth is the increase in the demand for convenience packaging.

Heat Sealing is the process of sealing one thermoplastic to another similar thermoplastic using heat and pressure. The direct contact method of heat sealing utilizes a constantly heated die or sealing bar to apply heat to a specific contact area or path to seal thermoplastics together. Heat sealing is used for many applications, including heat seal connectors, thermally activated adhesives, film media, plastic ports and foil sealing.

Sales Opportunity: Industrial Laser Industry

  • May 7, 2014

Industrial Laser Industry

Many scientific, military, medical and commercial laser applications have been developed since the invention of the laser in 1958. The coherency, high monochromaticity and the ability to reach extremely high powers are all properties which allow for these specialized applications. Laser applications include, but are not limited to:

  • Scientific ( Heat Treatment, Laser Cooling, Nuclear Fusion)
  • Military (Targeting, Firearms)
  • Medical (Cosmetic Surgery, Laser Scalpel)
  • Industrial & Commercial (Entertainment, Surveying)

Sales Opportunity: Food & Beverage Industry

Ultrasonic Sealing for Snack Bags Saves Material

Ultrasonic seals of metallic foils are peelable starting at widths of 7mm. Therefore, it is possible to reduce the overall amount of the packaging material.  Heat seals typically have a seal width of 15 to 24mm. The percentage of the area of a typical heat seal is approximately 8% to 12% of the package. This can be reduced by 50% when sealing with ultrasonics.

Sales Opportunity: Chemical Injection Skids

  • March 6, 2014

A Chemical Injection System is a piece of equipment that is designed to inject various chemicals into a system, usually to dilute solutions facilitate process flows. They can function continuously or intermittently and are used in a wide range of applications such as Well Cleaning, Oil Recovery, Corrosion Prevention, Pipeline Flow and much more.

There are many advantages to Chemical Injection Systems; they reduce downtime, they are safer and more effective and efficient compared to non-skid mounted units.

Sales Opportunity: Reverse Osmosis Desalination

  • October 1, 2013

I’m sure you have all seen the recent articles about the popularity increase for reverse osmosis systems. The demand for these systems has opened new sales avenues in multiple industries. From home appliance manufacturers to cruise ships and even luxury yacht builders.

ChemTec’s flow monitors, flow meters and excess flow valves are a great addition to reverse osmosis desalination systems. Installed to protect pumps, monitor flow, signal flow/no-flow conditions for quality, monitor operating pressures and fresh water flush upon shutdown. Some higher quality RO systems include digital output flow monitoring to signal maintenance scheduling, a great application for our all wetted parts MAO Series flow meter.

All systems operate with pumps. Similarly, ChemTec’s flow meter offers digital and analog outputs capable of sending a signal to a main control to monitor the efficiency of the R/O system.

Sales Opportunity: Nitrogen Generators for Snack Packaging Industry

  • September 1, 2013

A burst of nitrogen during the sealing stage in both dry and liquid packaging processes protects the freshness of the food while creating a tight seal. Perfect place for ChemTec’s Excess Flow Valve. Read more about these unique machines.

Sales Opportunity: UV Disinfection Systems

  • May 1, 2013

UV Disinfection Systems are an effective way to destroy super bugs in hospitals. Systems use either pulse xenon or mercury vapor lamps. Hospitals prefer xenon as it is a safe, harmless, inert gas while mercury is highly toxic if released.

UV disinfection is used in:

  • Municipal water treatment systems
  • Air ducts in buildings
  • Pharmaceutical manufacturing
  • Food & beverage processing
  • Sterile medical device packaging
  • Research laboratories
  • Paint curing, and a multitude of other applications

ChemTec’s flow monitors, flow meters & excess flow valves can be found in UV disinfection systems in two places: monitoring of xenon gas and monitoring the coolant/cooling liquid in closed loop system.

Product Seminars and Facility Tours

  • December 11, 2012

A heartfelt “Thank You!” goes out to our sales reps Tony Kent and Ian Taylor from Boiswood Ltd in Great Britain and Rick Duemling from Tempresco Inc. in California for visiting us recently. We enjoyed giving the tour of our new facility, discussing ChemTec products and potential application ideas for each of your markets.

At the end of the day, we all agreed the time was well spent and very productive. So much so, we decided in 2013 to offer 3 separate opportunities to visit our new facility, participate in application discussions and product training seminars.

We highly recommend everyone making the trip to take part in one of our seminars. If none of the dates work for your schedule, please let us know and we can make separate arrangements to accommodate your travel schedule. Contact Shannon Kantor at skantor@chemtec.com or Matt Donoghue at mdonoghue@chemtec.com for more information.
