The Vortex 48 shrink tunnel by Conflex puts the heat where it the chamber with the packages.  This uniques design positions the 3 heating elements in the heat chamber to heat the air around the package, not circulating through baffles as the recirculating shrink tunnel designs do.  This results in a fantastic shrink appearance and full control over the airflow and minimal power consumption. The consistent shrink tunnel air temperature and unique Archimedian airflow design offer superior shrink results at lower temperatures vesus traditional shrink tunnels.
