Portland, Conn. – Standard-Knapp, a worldwide leader in the manufacture of innovative packaging machinery, announces enhancements to the film bed system used in its popular Continuum™ Integrated Tray/Shrink System and Tritium™ Multipacker. The film bed changes were made in response to customer demand for greater efficiency and reliability, as well as higher maximum speeds. The updated film bed now features a more rigid pinch roller section, with components designed to ensure that the roller section cannot be assembled out of square. More rigid “fingers” prevent the film from wrapping around the pinch rollers. This more rigid design prevents the fingers from being bent, which reduces dog ears and missed cuts. Increased vacuum in the film bed through the belts as well as increased vacuum points in the belts also improve performance and reliability. The addition of an inline servo knife allows the systems to cut at any speed, rather than the limited speed ranges permitted by the older wrap spring clutch style. The film bed no longer needs to be slowed down or sped up during the cutting process, improving wrap tightness. Wrap spring clutches, a perennial wear item, have been eliminated from the system in favor of a servo motor, which has a much greater wear life. The film bed’s continuous profile prevents wear and tear on the film feed that results from higher acceleration and deceleration during the servo motion profile. Larger diameter pinch rollers have been added to the Tritium line, which will increase their tread life, allowing for more time between film bed rebuilds. “The innovative film bed enhancements are part of an evolution in modular machine design and construction, as well as advanced functionality,” said Patrick Nelson, engineering manager for Standard-Knapp. “These features allow for wide product range capabilities, as well as increased speed and reliability.”

Exton, Pennsylvania--Gamajet Cleaning Systems announced the release of the PowerFLEX tank cleaning machine. The PowerFLEX offers 400+ times the cleaning force of a standard sprayball at the SAME pressure and flow. For example: At a 10ft distance, operating at 30 gpm and 50 psi the Gamajet PowerFLEX produces nearly 10lbs of force. The average spray ball in the same scenario produces .01-.5lbs. More power, results in less resources such as time, water and chemicals (often up to 85% savings). The average operating conditions for the Gamajet PowerFLEX is between 50-100psi and 20-80 gallons per minute. At such conditions, the PowerFLEX will maintain 8-15lbs of force at a 10ft distance, this amount of impact at such low pressures is unattainable by any other tank cleaning machine. The PowerFLEX also incorporates a sanitary design, including FDA compliant materials, self cleaning and draining capabilities and a high polish, sanitary finish, making it the ideal tank cleaning machine for both sanitary and industrial applications. In addition, the PowerFLEX utilizes a patented technology that makes it 20-30% more durable than other rotary tank cleaners. As a result, the Gamajet PowerFLEX exceeded expectations and sold out of the initial build in the first week of offering. After being placed on backorder for a week the machine is once again available. Like all Gamajet machines, the PowerFLEX utilizes Gamajet Cleaning Systems proven rotary impingement technology, which optimizes the pressure and flow (machines are fluid drive- no external motor required) to create high impact cleaning jets. These jets then scour the entire tank interior in a repeatable and reliable 360-degree manner, resulting in the most efficient and effective cleaning. “We are very proud of the development of the Gamajet PowerFLEX. It fills a gap in our product line, fits the needs of our customers, and further instates our reputation as the leader in tank cleaning technology” says Robert Delaney, chairman of Gamajet Cleaning Systems. The Gamajet PowerFLEX offers highly efficient and effective tank cleaning, at a more reasonable pressure. Facilities can trial or purchase the PowerFLEX through any authorized Gamajet distributor, or directly through Gamajet Cleaning Systems.
