In this report, Technavio highlights the use of non-contact sensors in vacuum packaging machines as one of the key emerging trends driving the global vacuum packaging equipment market:
Use of non-contact sensors in vacuum packaging machines
The food industry depends on vacuum packaging to confirm increased shelf life because of minimal exposure to the atmosphere, resulting in reduced contamination from micro-organisms. It must be ensured that vacuum packaged food is completely sealed. In case of air leakage, the product quality cannot be guaranteed. Thus, reliable vacuum packaging solutions need to be adopted to avoid such issues.
After vacuum processing, the package is sealed using a hot resistance wire, which joins the two ends of the package completely. The ambient temperature of the machine and the package can differ throughout the day, resulting in a failed sealing process, particularly in the morning when the resistance wire is relatively cold. Hence, the temperature can be increased. But, if the daytime temperature increases substantially, there are chances that the wire may become so hot that it can burn the plastic cover.
Manufacturers can achieve greater control over the sealing process by means of measuring the seal temperature and thereby producing a feedback loop to the resistance wire. The contact thermal sensors are not a suitable option for the process because they might get damaged as soon as they meet the packaging material. Besides, the response time for these sensors to establish the fusion temperature of the plastic material is less.
“Vacuum packaging machine manufacturers are resorting to the latest technology, known as the non-contact sensor. Non-contact sensors offer advantages such as high repeatable accuracy, very less response time, easy to use, and do not require any form of calibration or programming,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on unit operations.
