A report from Transparency Market Research predicts a CAGR of 6% in the global pet food market in 10 years from 2019, reaching a value of US$168.3 billion (AU$239.7 billion) by 2029.

Increasing consumer demand for premium-quality products has prompted manufacturers to use high-quality materials and ingredients, while streamlining their production techniques and processes, thereby requiring quality packaging to reflect this premium image.

The Proseal tray sealer range has the flexibility to perform in a range of disciplines, including gas flush modified atmosphere packaging (MAP), vacuum MAP with lid control and skin packaging. The company’s sealing systems provide control and integrity of the seal between the lid and the tray, which is important for applications that incorporate a substantial controlled retortion process, or other high-pressure sterilisation processes after sealing.

“As the pet food market continues to expand, we were keen to provide solutions for companies requiring a significant upscale in their production of core products in new packaging formats, which could be met on one machinery platform,” said Tony Burgess, Head of Sales and Control Systems, Proseal.

The tray sealers also include several Proseal-developed features to help maximise performance, reliability and efficiency, such as Eseal energy-saving technology, ifilm intelligent film monitoring and ProTect RFID access login system that provides full audit trail visibility and layered security.

The length and width of the indexing conveyor can also be customised to accommodate particular de-nesting and filling requirements. Full or partial vacuum systems can be incorporated to enable post seal processes, such as retort or high pressure processing (HPP), with X-ray inspection systems and checkweighers included after sealing for enhanced quality control. The AP60 offers seamless integration with third-party process equipment, including depositors, multihead weighing applications and CIP systems with sealing speeds of up to 240 packs per minute.

All Proseal machines feature a user-friendly interface and easy-to-maintain design, with a hygienic food industry approved construction geared to full washdown protection.
