Southern California Edison (SCE) and SCE’s Foodservice Technology Center (FTC) conducted a field study to evaluate and compare the energy savings and demand reduction potential between the baseline package sealers currently used in supermarkets, and the new, on-demand package sealers.

The current, conventional package sealer uses a heating bar to cut the wrapping film on contact, and a larger heating element to make the film stick. These heating elements are rated at approximately 50 watts (W) and 0.55 kilowatts (kW) respectively, and have a constant temperature of 280°F.
