Some of the hot-air, vacuum assisted and high pressure boiler steam disadvantages are discussed below. We recommend OAB® steam. Rapid labeling even for filled bottles and for bottles with unusual curvature has never been easier. possibilities of 90% savings in energy and water even with complex bottles. possibilities of high disinfection. Possibilities of improved cotton fibers. Use pure high quality steam.
Hot-Air Systems: Possible Disadvantages
High distortion which could lead melting/burns and to a slower overall process or lower quality.
Sometimes a reduced shininess of labels is noted in scattering experiments (MHI can do a laser scattering experiment for you to establish shininess for your label), Please contact MHI.
High energy efficiency savings are 50- 95% over traditional high-pressure boiler steam. For example, changing from a 80 kW * BHP) boiler to a (4-12) kW OAB® Steam Generator yields a savings in of US $60,000 – $65,000 per year @ $0.10/kWh, assuming continuous operations.
