Hot Air & Infrared Radiant Shrink Tunnels

Recirculating For Maximum Energy Efficiency

PDC makes a wide range of convection hot air and infrared radiant shrink tunnels specifically for the application of heat shrinkable sleeve labels and tamper evident bands. All PDC shrink tunnels are made of heavy gauge stainless steel and are of dual wall construction. The hot air is recirculated over the heater elements by drawing it back into blowers for optimal energy efficiency. Ambient air is drawn in and circulated through an outer skin to insulate operators from exposure to high temperatures.

In addition to the wide range of heat tunnel models, PDC can customize the ideal system for your application. With extensive experience in all variations of shrink sleeve applications, PDC utilizes a combination of technologies to produce the optimal product appearance. For instance, in high-speed operations, two or more tunnels of the same or of different types might be used in sequence. For special applications, a pre-shrink heater or post-shrink heater unit can be used with the tunnels.

PDC shrink tunnels are manufactured to the highest standards for the pharmaceutical, food, beverage and dairy industries. No matter what the application, PDC can supply you with the perfect combination of shrink systems to optimize the selling power of your product.
