Design and Fabrication of a Polyethylene Sealing Machine for Packaging Unripe Plantain Flour

Authors: Inegbedion F, Ibhafidon AI

DOI Info:


Heat sealing is one of the most commonly used methods for sealing polyethylene of either a high density or a low density. Local farmers either expose their products without sealing or use sealing machines that do not achieve a perfect seal. To prevent this problem, an affordable heat-sealing machine was designed and fabricated using locally available materials. The polyethylene sealing machine designed and fabricated could seal a package within 10 secs.
