Series VA100 valve applicators
install the valve from above the film (printed side down) as the film proceeds
to the forming collar or plow. While being the most sophisticated, the Series
VA100 is the simplest to install, requires the fewest additional rollers, and
most often is mounted just before the forming collar on vertical form and fill
Series VA200 valve applicators
install the valves from below the film (printed side up). Used on form and fill
machines when the valve can be applied from below the film. While the Series
VA200 is lower in initial costs, the required reversal of the film path on vertical
form and fill machines often make the Series VA100 preferable.
Any heat sealed valve or fitment can have an applicator made by Marble Manor.
applicators are available for Fres-co, ICA, Pacific Bag, PPI,
SIG and WIPF valves.
MARBLE MANOR MANUAL VALVE APPLICATORS
valve applicators will allow you to use standard pre-made bags
and add valves when desired. Some ground coffee out-gases
effectively during the cooling cycle. If this is the case, the
sealed bag or pouch will not require a valve. However, the valve
will be necessary if whole bean coffee is roasted and sealed
while still fresh.
