An agrochemical manufacturer has helped to prevent customer complaints by moving to induction cap sealing.

Floratine, a manufacturer of soil, turf and speciality products, needed to prevent its containers from getting damaged and leaking during the transportation process.

Its products – which are used to treat golf courses and sport turf – contain organic components that release gas and can affect the shape of the containers in warm or cold temperatures, leading to leaks.

Darryl King, Director of Operations for Floratine, said:

“Packaging the containers became tedious. We were tightening all the caps using a hand held pneumatic capper and if we didn’t get the cap tightened just right, it resulted in a phone call from an unhappy customer with a leaky container or bloated jugs.”

The company contacted Enercon Industries for a trial after learning that induction cap sealing and a vented foil could increase a container’s resistance to temperature variations and facilitate shipping.

Speaking about the sealing trial, Mr King said:

“The true test was when one of my co-workers took off the cap and stood on the bottle with only the sealed liner holding the product, and it didn’t burst.”

The company now uses Enercon’s unique “All-in-One” sealing head with their Super Seal™ induction cap sealer, allowing them to use the equipment on various production lines, without having to change the sealing head.

Mr King said:

“Customer complaints are nearly eliminated and 99% of our problems were solved with the induction sealer – it was a godsend.

“You can’t put a price tag on dependability."
