UTILIZING LEISTER VULCAN SYSTEM HOT AIR TOOL TO SPEED UP THE CONVEYOR BELT, ELIMINATING CONDENSATION DURING DATING AND MARKETING OF PACKAGED GUACAMOLE, AND INCREASING EFFICIENCY!

It’s true! Because of the Leister Vulcan System hot air tool, America’s largest guacamole manufacturer overcame their challenge of dealing with condensation that was interfering with their daily processes.

Below, you’ll learn all about the problem condensation was causing and just how the Leister Vulcan System hot air tool saved the day.

THE STORY: PERSISTENT CONDENSATION

A well-known American guacamole manufacturer contacted Assembly Supplies Company for assistance in solving a persistent problem occurring at the end of their guacamole processing phase. Once the guacamole was packaged, which was in a cold room, it got moved to another cold room where it had a short wait to be marked and dated. This room was not as cold as the packaging room, so a noticeable layer of condensation would form on the packaging. Why is this a problem? The condensation was forming exactly where the product was to be marked with a freshness date, thus making it impossible for the marking to stick.

Assembly Supplies Company was tasked with finding a solution that would prevent this condensation from appearing altogether. The company was provided with a budget and a list of stringent requirements. Taking all these details into consideration, Assembly Supplies Company provided the guacamole giant with a resolution, which was crafting a simple conveyor that employs hot air at the exact point in time when condensation would begin to form. The hot air dries the water droplets right before the package is successfully dated and marked for shipping.

Thankfully, the condensation problem is no more, and because a Leister Vulcan System hot air tool is used, the guacamole manufacturer gained a solution that is very budget-friendly and requires very little maintenance.

Why the Leister Vulcan System Heat Gun?

Assembly Supplies Company decided to use the Leister Hotwind Systems heat gun and its wide slot nozzles in the manufacture of the conveyor for many reasons. The Leister Hotwind System boasts:

  • Closed-loop capabilities that allow for the temperature to be programmed at a specific level regardless of any exterior environmental factors.
  • High durability but low maintenance.
  • Brushless motors for lengthy and consistent work cycles.

Growth of the Guacamole Project

The guacamole manufacturer was thrilled with the cost-effective results of the solution employed by Assembly Supplies Company. So much so, that it was requested that Assembly Supplies Company help to build even larger, faster lines after that.

Once again, a trusted heat gun from Leister was embraced as the go-to heating tool for the project. This time, Assembly Supplies Company employed the slightly more advanced Leister Vulcan System hot air tool. This tool was more powerful and made it possible for the lines to run up to three times faster, ultimately boosting production significantly.

Due to Leister hot air tools and the unrivaled expertise of the Assembly Supplies Company team, the guacamole manufacturer was equipped to provide its customers with a fresher product in greater abundance than ever before.
