Tunnel Warmer

Hermis tunnel warmers are designed for heating sealed beverages to the ambient temperature (from about 20 °C to more than 25 °C) of the room prior to labeling.  Essentially, tunnel warmers prevent condensation that is likely to make labeling more difficult. The warming process also preserves the quality of products. Additionally, using a tunnel warmer also ensures that bottles will not break due to thermal shock.
