  • Virtually eliminates leakers
  • Maximizes shelf life

Ross Tray Sealers produce modified atmosphere packages (MAP) and vacuum skin packages (VSP) from preformed trays of almost any size or shape. They package fresh, refrigerated, retort or frozen food products at a full range of output rates. Ross MAP and VSP systems produce attractive, leak-proof, tamper-evident packages with greater seal integrity and extended shelf life. They are perfect for all types of cheese, prepared food, meat, poultry, sausage, seafood and produce packaging.

Ross manufactures a variety of tray sealers, including machines that feature an Inline design, as well as machines that use a Tray Carrier design. All Ross tray sealers are built in the USA.

INLINE DESIGN
The Ross ‘IN’ Inline Tray Sealer is a superior solution for producing your entire line of MAP and VSP packaging. The fully automatic Ross IN is fast, highly flexible, and extremely easy to operate. It produces packages using preformed trays of almost any size or shape. Like all Ross tray sealers, the IN consistently produces packages with high-quality seals that virtually eliminate leakers. The IN Series features the following models:

  • IN450
  • IN450 Plus
  • IN650
  • IN850

All IN models are designed to allow rapid tool changeover between tray sizes, reducing downtime and maximizing production efficiency. Using our innovative Tool Cart, a single operator can complete a tool change in ten minutes.

The IN features a built-in in-feed conveyor to deliver trays to the tooling/sealing area. This simplifies the loading process and eliminates the need for an OTB loader. An intuitive HMI touch screen controller makes operation a breeze.

The IN’s inline design allows 360° access to all machine components and tooling, allowing easy maintenance and cleaning. Its stainless steel washdown construction provides the highest level of sanitation. Its compact design and small footprint allows it to fit into tight spaces.

CARRIER DESIGN
Ross carrier-design tray sealers use a customized tray carrier to perfectly fit each tray. The tray is completely supported in the flange area. The tray carriers positively position the trays in the sealing station. Positive positioning of the trays leads to incredibly consistent seals and virtually eliminates leakers.

When producing MAP packages and the tray is in the sealing station, the package evacuation and gas flushing are done using pressure. This ensures the same level of evacuation and gas in each tray on every cycle. Trays packaged this way consistently have maximum shelf life.

Ross manufactures six different models of tray sealers that all use the same carrier design and technology. These six models have output rates from 5 to 150 trays per minute. This range allows you to choose the perfect balance of production output to capital investment for your business. You do not have to sacrifice quality, shelf life, or package security.
