F Series Shrinkbanders

Sanitary Construction 30 to 400 CPM

F Series

The PDC F Series was developed specifically to apply tamper evident bands, 1 to 2.3 inches (25 to 60 mm) in height, to large diameter tapered tubs and straight-walled containers (for cultured dairy products, margarine, butter, ice cream, oatmeal and dessert toppings). They can also be used on large diameter jars and other containers.

Line Speed: 30 to 400 cpm
Band Diameter Range: 2.5 to 6.75 inches (63 to 172 mm) and oval or “sqround”
Band Height Range: 1 to 2.3 inches (25 to 60 mm)

Tamper Evident Banding for Food and Dairy Tubs

Positive Band Support and Pre-Shrinking
All F Series machines have band support devices on which the bands rest after application, positively and mechanically. The band is then pre-shrunk while resting in its proper position so that is does not shift on its way to the shrink tunnel. The F-160 and F-200 use a star wheel and the FC-200 and FC-400 use split captivators.
