Shrink tunnels

Article-Shrink tunnels

Ambiance Hot Air™ shrink tunnels use a combination of three dry-heat technologies: Recirculating hot air; blown hot air; and the “SPAF” system, which injects cool air into the sleeve, controlling the areas of greatest shrink. The tunnels produce highly consistent, “steam-like” results where the use of steam can be impractical or unavailable. They also control sleeve temperature, from room temperature to shrink temperature, and are efficient and low in wattage. The tunnels have 16 directed nozzles in a precise, ascending profile, and heating elements are electronically regulated from 3 to 18 kw.
