Abstract: Secondary and tertiary air passages through the air nozzle surround the primary compressed air passage and induce a flow of low pressure air which surrounds the stream of compressed air to reduce the noise to acceptable levels. When the outlet end of the nozzle is blocked, flow through the tertiary air passages reverses to allow the compressed air to escape therethrough.
Abstract: A plastic film sealer has a thermostatically controlled heated bar which can move inwardly and outwardly through an opening in the sealer housing. A high temperature plastic film is attached across the opening and interposed between the heated bar and the layers of heat sealable plastic film being heat sealed. The movement of the heated bar and of the high temperature plastic film is limited substantially to perpendicular movement relative to the plane of the heat sealable plastic film layers.
