MOCON: Hot Tack Tester

New to the U.S., MOCON, Inc. is now marketing a hot tack tester loaded with features that is available at a significantly lower cost than similar testers on the market. MOCON is the sole U.S. representative of the HT1-XS Hot Tack Tester from U.K.-based RDM Test Equipment Company. The unit measures the strength of the heat seal in vertical form-fill-seal applications. This creates a hot tack index, which is the optimum heat-seal strength over a range of temperatures. The HT-1XS Hot Tack Tester allows users to change the temperature and record results from multiple readings on the same graph. This reporting system follows the guidelines established in a recently published ASTM F-1921-98 standard. A touch-screen display allows the user to enter setup parameters and see results more clearly.
