This foot sealer allows you to pack your products efficiently and in a cost-effective manner. Many sealers in the market fail when it comes to sealing tougher material, but this one will stand the test of sealing any packaging material without incurring any leaks. If you have been looking for a sealer that does a job well on tougher material, then this is just the product for you.
Adjust the temperature as per the hardness of material
The Upper Jaw Constant Foot Sealer is designed to provide superior and easy packaging and sealing for all types of products. It is recommended for hard applications which can’t be packed or sealed with regular sealers. It comes with temperature control and a beeper that alerts when the packing is complete. All the machines have an electro static painted and injected mold cast for greater durability.

Unfortunately, the answer is no. A 2mm and 5mm sealer utilize two different transformers and putting a 5mm heating element on a 2mm sealer could irreparably damage your sealer. Round wires and 2mm wires, however, are interchangeable.
Impulse sealers can instant seal a variety of poly materials including but not limited to: Polyethylene, Saran, Nylon, Polyvinylchloride, Polypropylene, Pliofilm, Kel-F, Mylar, Polyflex, Polyurethane, and Polyvinyl alcohol.
The #1 most common issue is maintenance. If your sealer is not working, check to see if your element is broken and/or your PTFE adhesive has worn through. If the element comes into contact with the body of the sealer due to a worn adhesive, the element may have "shorted" and caused damage to the timer. If both elements and PTFE adhesives are good condition, we recommend taking a look at the microswitch (small unit that allows an electrical current to pass through when the arm is brought down) and the electronic timer (unit that controls the seal cycle duration.)
When you do not hear a "click click" when you bring the arm down to the base of the sealer, that is a sign that the microswitch is not activated and there is no electrical current being transferred. We suggest making some easy slight adjustments to the microswitch. Please UNPLUG the unit before making any adjustments
When the element breaks, it is time to change to a new element. If you change the element, we absolutely absolutely recommend changing the PTFE adhesive (bottom adhesive strip) found underneath the element. See our answer below for more information.
For the PTFE cover, we recommend changing the cover BEFORE it burns through. As the cover wears, you will see a discoloration where it comes into contact with the element, you may also notice that your element is sticking to the thermoplastic material you are sealing. You can maneuver the cover back and forth to allow the element to come into contact with the unused portions of the PTFE cover. For the PTFE adhesive, you must replace the bottom sealing strip whenever you change the element. The adhesive serves as a barrier between the heating element and the sealer's body. When the sealer's heating element has burned through the bottom adhesive and arc'ed on the sealer's body, the element will break as well as destroy the timer. When you replace your adhesive, make sure the adhesive is 1/4"-1/2" past the machine on both ends to prevent the heating element from coming into contact with the sealer's body.
