Steam Head Attachment for the SST Shrink Sleeve Label Applicator
SST Steam Heads are made to go interchangeably with our shrink sleeve machine so users can quickly switch between container sizes with no inconvenience. The steam head itself serves as a small and quick steam tunnel for containers with shrink sleeves to pass through fully sleeved. This is an upgrade from the slow conveyor belt style “portable shrink sleeve tunnels and heat guns.” They are also engineered to capture and funnel excess moisture back into the water reservoir to eliminate most of the condensation from dripping out of the head.
How to Choose the Right Size Steam Head
To select the appropriate steam head size, begin by measuring the diameter of your container. Once you have obtained the diameter, opt for the next available steam head size larger than the measured diameter. This will ensure optimal performance, as it provides sufficient space for the container to be inserted while still allowing for thorough steam application.
The Portable Shrink Sleeve Label Applicator
The SST Shrink Sleeve Machine is a compact and portable alternative to large, room-sized steam tunnels typically used for shrink-sleeve labeling. With a footprint of only 4 square feet for operation and a table space requirement of 2 square feet, the SST offers efficiency without occupying much space. It provides performance comparable to automatic industrial sleeving machines without the bulk. The SST allows for easy container sleeving in just one second by dropping them down the steam-head tunnel. It is compatible with shrink-sleeve bands, partial, and full-body labels. The SST requires no recalibration – simply turn it on and start sleeving.
