THE LAB at Ambrell tested a cap sealing application for a client. It involved sealing a 1.5” (38.1 mm) diameter cap with foil to a plastic bottle within one second. The target temperature for this cap sealing application was 250-300 ºF (121-149 ºC). THE LAB determined that an EASYHEATTM 2 kW, 150-400 kHz induction heating power supply with a single turn helical coil of rectangular tube would meet the requirements of the client.

Consequently, they turned to THE LAB for a proper induction solution.
