Paper Abstract

The study of the operation and performance of natural gas fired sealing lines for polyethylene coated beverage containers was performed. Both thermal and geometric data was abstracted from the thermal scans and used to characterize the performance of the sealing line. The impact of process operating variables such as line speed and carton to carton spacing was studied. Recommendations for system improvements, instrumentation and process control were made.
