Vf/f/s pouch system donated to Clemson
Clemson University students are receiving first-hand experience with pouch packaging thanks to the donation of a Model 2050 vertical form/fill/seal system from Cryovac (Duncan, SC), a subsidiary of Sealed Air Corp.
The system packs hot- and cold-fill foods such as soups and sauces into flexible pouches.
In September Clemson’s Packaging Science Department demonstrated how the $176 gift could work producing plastic bags filled with an orange drink. “Cryovac has proven to be a genuine asset to our school and the community and we appreciate the continued support in helping us to remain one of the highest-ranking packaging science schools in the country” noted Dr. Ron Thomas chairman of Clemson’s Packaging Science Department. He said the machine will become a “cornerstone” of the laboratory.
“Students can actually get hands-on experience with the machinery” added Beth Hartley a graduate student working on a masters degree in packaging science. “And when they get in a working environment they’ll know what is going on.”
