 How Our Drum Heat Seal System Works

The Drum Heat Seal system has been optimized to serve the refrigerated and frozen food industry. Designed to be clean, rugged, and easy to maintain, the machine can seal plastic or paper board food containers at speeds of 150 containers per minute per lane. Suitable for most flexible lidding materials, the system is custom designed and manufactured to your requirements. The Drum Heat Seal Machine can be designed to work with an indexing production system or with continuously running systems.

Sanitary Construction

Raque Food Systems’ machinery has a worldwide reputation for reliability, quality of construction, and speed. Manufactured completely from high-quality, food-grade materials, all Raque machines are built to the highest of standards and can be CE marked for conformance to all E.U. Directives. Whether machines are sold to the European Union or elsewhere, all machines meet all of the applicable directives.

Operator Interface Terminal

Using the latest advances in technology, heat sealing systems incorporate an Operator Interface Terminal (OIT or touchscreen) into the control system.

Touchscreens provide:

  • Password-protected levels of security
  • Ability to adjust system features
  • Help information
  • Real-time troubleshooting data

System Integration

The Raque Drum Heat Seal can integrate into an existing line or serve as the integral control component to a new production line. Features can be added to the machine that extend mechanical power and communication signals to remote areas. By extending mechanical power and sharing line information with other machinery, Raque Food Systems can effectively integrate line management to make your production runs a smooth and efficient process.
