A coffee packaging factory has approached Fraser Anti-Static Techniques to eliminate static occurring in its vertical form fill packaging.

The vertical form fill seal process is prone to issues caused by static charge on the film.

The static electricity attracts the product, which causes bad sealing on the top and bottom of the bags.

This is a common problem with light and dusty products, although can also be an issue with liquids.

Fraser advised the coffee packaging factory that the static charge must be neutralised before the film reaches the filling tube and again just below the end of the tube but above the horizontal sealer for optimal effect.

Positioning 1250-S static eliminator bars 20mm away from the film provided the required static neutralisation.

The factory was said to be pleased with the outcome and has found that since the installation output has risen while reject and line downtime has fallen.
