Osbornes chooses PA zero air sealer

When Osborne and Sons, a small pack house based in Taunton, Somerset needed to increase capacity to cope with the demand for their strawberries they turned to PA for a new eclipse SL3 tray sealer.

The in-line, fully electric SL3 is a small footprint machine capable of sealing up to 45 packs per minute that can reduce an end user’s running costs by up to 90 percent.

The machine incorporates PA’s Powerdrive technology which, unlike the pneumatic/electric hybrids currently on the market, requires zero compressed air for full operation. With all systems driven directly by small servomechanisms, the running costs and environmental impact can be as low as eight percent of an equivalent pneumatic system, while still achieving the same high standards of versatility and sealing performance.

David Osborne MD said “The machine is easy to use, reliable and robust and the fact that it runs using no compressed air was the deciding factor when we chose this machine from PA.

He continued, overall we've been very impressed by the level of support that PA has given us and their contribution to the overall project has been invaluable. Their service team have been brilliant, I feel like one of the team at PA”.

Like many of PA’s machines, the eclipse SL3 tray sealer is available for seasonal hire as well as purchase.
