SST Shrink Tunnels

The Sleeve Seal SST Shrink Tunnels are available in a wide range of options that complement your shrinking needs. Choose from steam or electric heat sources for in-line tunnels that integrate easily with existing conveyor lines and deliver consistent performance for repeatable shrinking. Every model within our shrink tunnel product line includes external controls that allow precise control to each array without exposing the operator to heat. Making adjustments on the fly is safe, fast and easy.

Shrink Tunnels – Steam

Sleeve Seal Steam Shrink Tunnels use steam for efficient, controllable shrink labeling and are available in a range of lengths to match production speed. Sleeve Seal steam shrink tunnels feature a 316 stainless steel interior to prevent corrosion with removable service doors that make the tunnels machines service friendly. Cam lock handles hold nozzle arrays in place which allows for tool-less adjustment, and a location indicator makes setup repeatable. SST Steam Tunnels have external controls to keep the operator safe while managing nozzle array pressure without opening the tunnel doors. Ease of use, range of controls and safety features make our tunnels an easy choice for quality label shrinking on even the most unique containers.

Shrink Tunnels – Electric

If you need the dry heat produced by advanced electric heating elements, consider our range of in-line electric shrink tunnels. Electric shrink tunnels feature precision controls for repeatable shrinking during production. External controls are easy to adjust and monitor for consistent performance.

External Shrink Control

Every model with in our shrink tunnel product line features external steam gauges and controls. This allows for precise control to each nozzle array or knife array without opening the tunnel doors. Making adjustments on fly is easy and fast.

Individual Nozzle and Knife Arrays

Our Shrink Tunnels feature individually position-able nozzle or knife arrays. These arrays can be moved up, down, in, out and tilted to target the container exactly where the shrink is needed.

Tool-less Adjustment

Nozzle Arrays are held in place with cam lock handles that allow for toolless adjustment. The Nozzle arrays feature a location indicator which makes setup repeatable precise and painless.

High Speed Shrink Sleeve Labeler Shrink Tunnel


Sleeve Seal is focused on a new era of repeatable labeling performance. Built-to-last American manufacturing expertise and modern engineering combine to produce speeds from 25 to 1600 CPM on robust machines equipped with intelligent Allen Bradley controls. Heavy weight construction and the fastest, most durable drive train in the industry provide countless hours of high efficiency runs. Sleeve Seal machines are engineered to provide quality-labeling performance with simple, tool-less changeovers between container formats. Other patented innovations, such as a multi-blade cutter assembly with quick-change blades have been developed for ease of maintenance.


Sleeve Seal Cap Sealers offer the same rugged construction and precision application as our vertical labelers with rapid tool-less changeover of change parts. Our cap sealers and vertical shrink labelers utilize identical drive trains, allowing the user to switch safely and easily from format to format.


The line of Sleeve Seal shrink tunnels features a new style of tunable controls that make shrinking labels on containers both precise and repeatable. In order to shrink labels at higher speeds, our shrink tunnels come in a broad range of sizes that compliment all of our labelers. In addition to newly designed controls, Sleeve Seal tunnels feature 316 stainless steel interior lining and components for maximum corrosion resistance. Every shrink tunnel model features external controls that allow the adjustment of individual arrays without exposing the operator to heat.
