Flame Treatment

2 & 4 BURNER

Flame Treatment Systems

Ska Fab flame treaters are proven to provide a safe, consistent and reliable solution for effectively surface treating plastic bottles.  Surface treatment systems are ideally suited to enhance the adhesion of bottle labels and printing prior to application.

Flexible adjustments and ease of operation enable maximum flame control on a wide range of container shapes and sizes.  Built-in-safety features monitor container flow in and out of the flame area for product jams and line back-ups.  Precision flow controls regulate air and gas for accurate flame and heat consistency.  In addition, the unit is completely guarded for operator safety.
