Heat Seal the Pouch with MELAseal 100+
The MELAseal 100+ is renowned for its efficiency, reliability, and ease of use.
The autoclave pouch rolls can be mounted on the sealing unit and the foils can be sealed without a pause and with a secure width of sealing seam of 10 mm
The sealing time and temperature are defined automatically and an optical and acoustic signal is made if there is any deviation.
During the sealing procedure, bags can be cut from a roll to the required length with the integrated cutting device, and be processed so much more cheaply than with ready foil bags.
This allows every item to be sealed, sterilised, and stored safely and be ready for use with the next patient.
How to wrap instruments using a sealing device
International guidelines require that instruments are sterilized wrapped after cleaning and disinfection.
Sealing individual instruments in sterilization film packages with a heat sealing device is the ideal measure for realizing sterile instrument storage. The seal seams must fulfill international standards.
MELAG provides tips for safe packaging in sterilization film pouches:
✓ The instrument length may only take up max. 75 % of the pouch and a minimum clearance of 3 cm must be maintained between the instrument and the seal seam.
✓ The seal seam should exceed the minimum width of 6 mm.
✓ The overhang behind the seal seam should amount to a standard of 1 cm. The overhang at the opening side should amount to 3 cm, to enable easy opening of the pouches.
Please always comply with the peel direction of the film packaging when opening.
