Plastic Pail Closers

Without plastic pail closers, there would be a lot of time and physical effort wasted. By utilizing automatic closing machines, a business can successfully process a huge volume of product per day and follow strict health and safety regulations as well. And, although still marginal at best, there is still the option of using manual plastic pail closers (mallets and crimpers) for smaller businesses and for when machines are down for repair.

The most effective of all plastic pail closers is the RPC roller pail machine. This one tool can successfully top and seal most pails with press on lids. It is able to close a wide array of different pail sizes, a fact that increases investment productivity.

The RPC pail machine works by rolling the lid from one side of the container to the other, basically squeezing any excess air from the top. This will help to prevent air compression (which interferes sometimes with shipping) and any bulging of the lid. Any bubbles at the top of the lid makes stacking almost impossible and can slow down any work later down in the process.

Operational Expectations of Plastic Pail Closers

On the RPC plastic pail closers, about 30 four-liter containers (equal to about 20 twenty-liter pails) can be processed per minute. The machine does not need an operator while the pail is being closed; all the operator needs to do is place a pail and lid onto the conveyor belt. This belt travels about eight meters per minute and is large enough to handle containers in a variety of sizes.
