Maintenance - How to change the Heating Element and PTFE Cover/Adhesive on your Hand Sealer
Maintenance is KEY to a long lasting impulse sealer. Regular maintenance of your impulse sealer will ensure the longevity of your sealer. After using between 1,000-5,000 seals, it is normal for the heating element (wire) to break . The number is dependent on your timer setting and will vary from user to user. Regularly replacing your sealer’s heating wire, PTFE adhesive (sticky brown protective skin under the element), and the PTFE cover (brown protective skin over the element) is essential for your sealer’s health and well-being.
