What is hermetic sealer?

Hermetic sealing is the process of creating a container of some sort that is airtight. That means that any material in the container, whether it’s a gas, liquid, or solid, will not leak from the container. Hermetic sealing is commonly used to encase electrical mechanisms, as well as to contain functional gases.

What is hermetic equipment?

A hermetic seal is any type of sealing that makes a given object airtight (preventing the passage of air, oxygen, or other gases). The term originally applied to airtight glass containers, but as technology advanced it applied to a larger category of materials, including rubber and plastics.

What are the different types of sealing machines?

What are the different types of Heat Sealers?

  • Impulse Heat Sealers. Impulse heat sealers only apply heat when the heating jaws are pushed down onto the area to be sealed and the set time is reached.
  • Constant Heat Sealers.
  • Constant Heat Roller Sealers.
  • Band Sealers.
  • Hood Shrink Sealers.
  • Shrink-a-pack.
  • Automatic heat Sealers.

How long does a hermetic seal last?

10-20 years
Since the late 1960’s cavity style microelectronic packages intended for use in these systems required a “hermetic” seal. Most military and space systems are designed to last 10-20 years and therefore a “leaky” package represents an unacceptable reliability risk.

Why is it called hermetic seal?

The first hermetic seal was an airtight glass tube known as the Seal of Hermes, which was used in very early alchemy. The process of hermetic sealing was named after the Greek God Hermes and the “hermetic tradition” that gave rise to alchemical experimentation.

What is not a hermetic seal?

Polymers and epoxies: high permeation rates and natural aging. While many everyday applications use polymers, epoxies, or PEEK as sealing or packaging materials, they do not offer true hermeticity and must always be considered non-hermetic.

What is sealing equipment?

Sealing Equipment encompasses machines and devices whose tasks range from enclosing packages in flexible films to closing up boxes, cartons, and bags. Machines can be operated manually, or semi- or fully-automatically.

What is envelope sealing machine?

Envelope sealing machines are designed to ease the process of sealing large volumes of envelopes. Automatic sealers are compact and easy to operate. Automatic envelope sealers are the most economical way of sealing envelopes hands free.

Why is it called a hermetic seal?

Where does hermetic seal come from?

As you may have figured out, origin of “hermetically” comes from the Latin form of Hermes’ name (‘Hermeticus’). Hermes’ name is associated with this concept because he was purported to be able to magically seal a box or chest in such a way that it could never be opened.

What is the sealer machine?

Sealing machines are used to seal containers with liquids, granules, powders, and sprays for consumer, bulk, and original equipment manufacturer (OEM) supply shipments. Packaging materials include aerosol containers, bags and pouches, blister packs, bottles and jars, as well as cartons and boxes.
