Axon, a brand owned by packaging solution provider Pro Mach, has developed a new Thermodash steam tunnel for shrink sleeve labelling by reducing energy and water consumption.

Thermodash has the ability to operate by employing 4KW of electricity and three gallons of water per hour, unlike existing steam tunnels that operate on 30KW of electricity and 10 gallons of water.

This will reduce energy consumption by more than 80% and water consumption by more than 60%, while enabling quality shrink sleeve labelling on lines running at up to 100 containers per minute, the company claims.

Designed for quick changeover, Thermodash features stainless steel double wall construction that ensures reliable and safe operation for years.

It also has a compact steam generating system rated at 15 PSI integrated on the back of the unit and is available in one and two zone configurations.

Thermodash is sized for containers up to 10.6 cm wide and 25.4 cm tall. However, customers can order for a custom Thermodash if their container size exceed these parameters.
