It depends on the number of tubes sealed and the type of the material the tubes are made of. How carefully the heat of the jaws is adjusted also plays a major role. If, for example, thin-walled tubes are processed with the greatest possible heat, the plastic will leave marks on the Teflon tape and as a result the tape will have to be replaced more often. It is also important to align the jaws in parallel after replacing the Teflon tapes so that the heat is transferred evenly to the tube ends. If you keep these two tips in mind, your Teflon tapes will last a long time.
We can answer this question with yes, even though both the TP and SP types have been out of production since 2004. It is our concern that older devices can be maintained.
In order to identify your device, we would of course need the device number, which you will usually find on the side of the device.
It is also possible to combine new pumps and new hoppers with the older GRISONA types. We also carry spare parts for our other older equipment types. However, some of these machines contain e.g. electrical/electronic components which are no longer available in this form. In most cases, we have a solution ready that may only require minor adjustments.
Yes, the GRISOTUB can be used to seal plastic and laminate tubes. These are the most comonly used materials for tubes:
- LDEP and LDEP iriodine-dyed
- HDPE transparent and HDPE iriodine-dyed
- 50% HDPE / 50% LDPE
- 60% HDPE / 40% LDPE
- 70% HDPE / 30% LDPE
- Eco tubes with EvoH
- Eco tubes with Siox
- Polyfoil tubes (Braunvidon)
- Combi tubes
Few tubes cannot be processed with the GRISOTUB. However, it refers without exception to tubes containing too much softener or high share of recycling materials. All tubes corresponding to today's quality standards can be sealed without any problem.
