How it works

The Turbopack operates on a pivoting wheel system which allows for easy movement within a working space. The adjustable visor can be extended up to 2.4m (7.87 ft) height allowing for easy shrink wrapping of a variety of pallet sizes. Once the height has been adjusted simply close the shut-off valve to secure the visor and then begin shrink wrapping. Pallets can be shrunk in as little as 60 seconds.

The trolley can hold up to 3 13kg gas bottles with each bottle able to shrink 60 pallets. This makes the Turbopack a low gas consumption (aka economical) shrink wrapping station.

Pro Tip: If you shrink long pallets or pallets of varying sizes the Turbopack is perfect because you can shrink any pallet size.

Ripack

Ripack

Originally named RIPPES, Ripack was created in Europe in 1922 and specialized in designing sealing equipment. Through the years they have maintained success through their continual innovation within the industry.

In 1975, Ripack came up with and developed the idea of covering a palletized load in a cover made from heat-shrinkable plastic in order to stabilize the load and protect it from theft and bad weather and thus, as they say, the rest is history.

1975 was also the year that shrinkwrap began to be manufactured and that spurred Ripack to develop a gas-fed “gun” intended for shrinking heat shrink covers thanks to the heat generated by the hot air produced. The “cold nozzle” patent which removes any risk of contact burns has enabled Ripack to become the leading brand on the market worldwide.

Ripack 3000 Heat Gun

Innovative Product Alert! - Ripack 3000 Shrink Gun

Featuring a unique Securipack system, the Ripack 3000 shrink gun offers the highest level of safety for this type of tool.

  • automatically detects the pressure in your gas bottle to prevent overheating
  • The stainless steel heat diffuser stays cold even when used for long periods (worldwide patent) preventing any risk of burns through direct contact with the nozzle.

The Ripack 3000 is the fastest shrink gun currently on the market. Thanks to the heat produced by a short, powerful flame, power is controlled. The quality of this heat facilitates shrink wrapping, unlike unsuitable welding torches with long, weak flames. The power of the Ripack 3000 is diffused through a fan-shaped nozzle in order to cover the largest possible surface area.

Suitable for 100-150 pallets a day, the Ripack 3000 is the solution to any problem related to the protection of your goods.

Ripack 3000 is also commonly used for boat wrapping and other outdoor applications. The Starter Kit contains everything you need to complete your project including:

  • 1 Ripack 3000 Heat Gun
  • 1 Premium Leather Safety Gloves (Pair)
  • 3 Rolls of 4" x 180' Shrink Wrap Tape
  • 1 Rolls of 2" x 180' Shrink Wrap Tape
  • 1 Roll of 1/2" x 1,500' Cross Woven Cord Strapping
  • 100 1/2" Buckles for Strapping
  • 1 Strap Tension Tool
  • 1 Roll 1/4" x 6" x 80' Foam Padding
  • 18 Adhesive Vents
  • 1 Shrink film knife
  • 4 Shrink film knife replacement blades

Pro Tip!

Ripack 3000 is equipped with an onboard spare ignitor. The piezo igniter is a part subject to wear and tear and found on all products on the market. The main difference between the Ripack 3000 and other competitors is that you can change it without needing to use any tools, or needing to disassemble your product and knowing that you have a spare piezo ignitor already in your equipment (hidden in the trigger guard casing).
