The Raque Drum Heat Seal handles plastic and pressboard bowls and trays like no other drum sealer on the market. Multiple size trays can be run on the drum heat seal with minimal change parts other than carriers. Even multiple pitch machines are possible. Though a less expensive alternative to the Raque Platen Heat Seal, the Drum Sealer is now available with many of the same options as identified below.


  • Rotating drums demand less maintenance than the platen heat seal and require a smaller footprint
  • Multiple drums are built into station to meet production capacity; 2 or 3 drums per lane is typical
  • Single lane, dual lane, three lane layouts
  • Control system includes touchscreen, Class III Division I safety circuits, and IP69k washdown components


  • No tray/no seal is now available enabling high speed Raque Ready Meal production
  • Film cutting options for straight cut or die cut
  • 1 to 4 film feed mandrels
  • Profiled drums for high product


  • Complete Filling & Sealing Lines include a drum sealer fed by a Raque Filling Conveyor with multiple Piston Fillers and Rotary Plate Fillers. Line lengths of 250 feet are common
  • By simply extending the carrier infeed section of the drum sealer to make room for a Raque Traveling Carriage and Weigh Scale machine, a Cereal Bowl Line is possible with the option of film registration
  • The control system can be configured to integrate all control of the production line including recipe management and line management functions
