Sealing Bar Blues2019-06-12

Sealing Bar Blues


While out making calls, our salesman received a call from a maintenance

worker who was installing a new sealing line at a fresh salad packaging plant

nearby.  When he arrived at the plant, the maintenance worker described

the situation.  They had just begun setting up a new sealing machine. The

new machine had less clearance at the terminal end of the sealing bar and

did not allow enough space for the current heater with its protective header.

“I can’t get your heater to fit and I don’t want to go back to using those other

heaters that were always getting stuck and burning out”, he exclaimed. 


The meeting moved out to the floor where the new sealing machine was

located.  They inspected the new unit, took measurements of the clearance

for both the new and the old lines, as well as photographs and talked through

some options.


Removing the header was the only way to get the heater to fit but the rapid

sealing jaw movement and vibration could cause lead wire problems. Further

discussion ensued and the decision was made to RTV pot the heater and

attach a right angle inside clip support.  This configuration secures the lead

wire and protects from vibration and movement as well as wash down.

Moreover, the new design could be used on the old and new design. 


The maintenance worker was thrilled he could still use Dalton heaters and

that one heater could be used in all machines. Watt-Flex® eliminates the

two things folks who do sealing care about most;  bore seizure and uneven heat. 

The fact we Reduce the Total Cost of Heat, is an added bonus! “Trust the

Dalton Difference” to keep you from singing the blues.

Sales Detectives2019-06-12

Sales Detectives


Last week one of our sales people was visiting a large press customer with

their distributor sales partner.  It took several years, many meetings and

countless engineering hours to finally close this customer.  Since changing

to Dalton Watt-Flex® heaters the customer observed longer heater life, higher

press efficiency, and reduction in the cost of heating. Recently, they began to

see unexplained failures and called Dalton to solve the mystery. 


After hanging up with the customer, our Dalton sales representative was on

the phone with our distributor partner.  Within hours he had arranged a flight

and a meeting with the customer.  The two sales detectives reviewed their

records in preparation for the visit.  Upon arriving, the duo asked the production

manager a series of probing questions – has anything changed? (material,

speed, temperature, cycle time, new or repair to insulation, new AC units,

fans, or new operators). “Nothing has changed, overall the heaters are great.”

he said, “but every once and a while, we get a long heater that sticks out

and burns out real fast.”


Recalling every heater had a “B” insertion dimension, and that the press had

a wider bottom press than the top, the two sales detectives carefully inspected

the press - two heaters were sticking out 2 inches.  The pair concluded

the bottom press heaters had been installed in the top press. Next, they set

out to solve how to keep it from happening again.  At the tool crib, they

discovered heaters were stored in bins labelled only with the press name.

Interviews with the maintenance crew revealed replacements heaters were

sometimes out-of-stock and had to make do with what they had on hand while

contributing to the incorrect assumption all heaters were the same.


The tandem held an impromptu meeting with the team, (crib clerk, maintenance

and production manager) highlighting the different heaters, while explaining how

and why they act to improve part quality, throughput and the positive contribution

to their performance bonus’.  The team brainstormed corrective actions and

implemented several great ideas on the spot. The tool crib bins were re-arranged,

added different color bins for the top and bottom presses, identical heaters were

assigned a bin location, and re-order levels adjusted. In addition, they decided

to use photos to map out where each heater goes in the press. Meanwhile, the

clever tool crib clerk worked out an automated email to send to the distributor

whenever a heater was requisitioned. 


Mystery solved – a loyal customer is born. “All in a day’s work”, proclaimed the

humble pair.  We know different, it’s the result of great partners, careful preparation,

probing questions, skilled observations, clarifying assumptions, deductive reasoning

and the sincere DESIRE to help. Sales Detectives solving ways to

Reduce the Total Cost of Heat, is another example to “Trust the Dalton Difference”.

A Japanese ship was leaving the port and on its way to open sea. The captain went to

go oil some parts of the ship and took his ring off so it wouldn’t get damaged. He left it

on the table next to his bunk. When he returned, it was missing. He had suspected

three crew members could be guilty and asked them what they had been doing for the

ten minutes that he had been gone.


The cook said, “I was in the kitchen preparing tonight’s dinner.”

The engineer said, “I was working in the engine room making sure everything was running smoothly.”

The seaman said, “I was on the mast correcting the flag because someone had attached it upside down by mistake.”

The captain immediately knew who it was. How?




It was clearly the seaman. It was a Japanese ship and a Japanese flag is white with a

single red dot in the middle. It can’t be hung upside down.

LEADERSHIP Personified

This week Doug Doane and I travelled to Toronto Canada to take part in a new

conference ‘AceCONNEX 2019’.  Traditionally, tradeshows have been the only

way to connect users and suppliers together in one area.  AceTronic saw a need

in the market to connect customers and suppliers in a more holistic way.  Over

the last 5 years, this idea began to take shape and last year debuted as

AceCONNEX 2019.  Kim Thiara, President and CEO of AceTronic Industrial

Controls, Inc., took a brave step in launching this years conference. The gamble

paid off as more than 200 customers and suppliers showed up to take part and

launched a new beginning for the trade show of the future. 


Kim leads her company with a guiding principal of being of service, “helping

customers achieve their objectives”.  Her passion to ‘help’ and willingness to lead

spills over into the many associations she actively participates in as well.  Specifically,

Canadian Aboriginal Minority Supplier Council (CAMSC), Women’s Business

Enterprise Network (WBENC), the Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE), the

Canadian Association of Mold Makers (CAMM) and the Canadian Plastics Industry

Association (CPIA).


I cannot begin to fathom the long hours spent thinking, preparing, and effort for

such an endeavor, I can only say thank you.  It is the testament of Kim’s great leadership

that they should prevail in the face of long odds and uncertain times.  We at Dalton

are proud to serve alongside her.

Piro Celebrates 20 Years2019-06-12

20th Anniversary Celebration


Piro, our chief roll mill operator and resident machine expert celebrated his 20th anniversary today.

Fortune smiled on him the day he met our owner.  At the time, Piro was working 95 hours at 3 jobs,  

to make ends meet.  Shortly after this chance meeting and with encouragement from

our owner, our Production Manager brought Piro on board at Dalton. 


20 years later, Piro, a man with a strong sense of duty to family, work and community continues to take

charge here and at home.  His two grown children are now university educated and out on their own.

Within the Albanian community, Piro has lent a helping hand in bringing many new employees to Dalton.

At Dalton, Piro quickly learned new operations and took on various rolls in Dalton production. 

When a new roll mill was purchased, it was Piro who stepped up to become lead

operator.  We are incredibly proud of and honored to award this hard working employee on his

20th anniversary.  We are blessed to have Piro on our team.

Quick Guide


I made table below to guide me through the different sizes and heater configurations we

offer and help answer customer questions quickly. I hope this helps you do the same.


“What is the correct bore diameter?”, is a question I get asked most often. The table lists the

minimum bore diameter and eliminates the many variables that influence the bore size,

tolerance and straightness of the hole.


Another feature of this guide provides the cold section length, as measured from the terminal end to

the beginning of the heated section.  Note these dimensions are the minimum cold end length, special

designs can add length to the cold end should your customer need longer cold sections.


For your inventory specialist and inside sales folks, the codes for cold tip, hot tip and distributed wattage

should help make sure your heaters with different designations do not get mixed up in the wrong ‘bin’.


Lastly, our grooved heater information with corresponding thermocouple column simplified

choosing the correct configuration and making sure the right thermocouple was selected.


The chart is attached for easy printing and for your own ‘internal use’. Good selling!

Proof Positive2019-06-12

Proof Positive!


We have always known that Watt-Flex® heaters are more efficient, provide

even heat and don’t seize in the bore.  The question of how much better is

difficult to precisely measure.  An enterprising engineering manager at a

global packaging company understood the distinct advantages of

Watt-Flex® heater technology and took it upon himself to scientifically

verify and validate the Dalton Difference. 


The excerpt below outlines the testing methodology and its precise degree

of performance improvement over conventional cartridge heaters


“Heaters to be tested in two ways:

  • Installed in a seal bar assembly and profiled in our normal test environment
    • The profile resulted in a similar curve as our regular heaters. 

I have found that our test environment has a lot of influence over the

shape of the profile curve.

NOTE: The Dalton heaters were much more consistent between each unit. 

  • At each measurement point the Dalton heaters were 1-7°F different
  • At each measurement point our regular heaters were 9-18°F different


  • Technician installed one heater in a machine that had two seal bars for comparison
    • The seal quality was the same as our regular setup
    • At steady state the heaters are cycled on and off at a percentage of on time
  • The Dalton heaters were able to run at 32% and maintain temperature
  • Our regular heaters ran at 40% to maintain temperature


It was also noted by the technician who performed the heater profile and the technician who

did the in-machine testing, that the Dalton heater was much easier to install and remove which

is a strong selling point."


This data confirms our claim that Watt-Flex® heater technology provides more even heat

across the sealing bar.  Moreover, the test reveal our heater uses 25% less energy to maintain

set temperature.  Take it from the experts - Watt-Flex® heaters are the best choice for sealing

Get the Wet Out2019-06-12

Get the WET out!

This week I have been working with a distributor to overcome a problem at one

of our end-use customers.  During the course of our investigation we uncovered

the problem and other tid-bits that might benefit all Dalton customers. 


As heating experts, you are aware that cartridge heaters pick up moisture.   

The rate of this process depends on the design and environment which could take

place within hours or may take months. MgO loves water and will absorb moisture

readily.  You may have noticed that Dalton Watt-Flex® heaters are heavier than

conventional heaters – that’s because we pack ten times more MgO in our heaters

than conventional ones.


Cartridge heaters absorbing moisture is a known issue in the industry and its

negative impact on heaters must be monitored, and appropriately dealt with to

prevent premature heater failure. Many users implement various and often ingenious

ways to bake out moisture.


At this particular customer, we designed the heater with RTV potting.  The distributor

believed the heater potted with RTV would be free of moisture forever. The fact is,

even with RTV potting, our heater will take on moisture. Not aware of this fact, the

distributor did not take normal drying precautions and did not advise the customer either. 

Full voltage was applied instead of the recommended 50% voltage soft start procedure

and the heater failed soon after energizing.


Now armed with this information, I expect the customer to enjoy the long-life Watt-Flex®

heaters are known for.  Our heaters are different by design.  We are purposely different in

our single-minded pursuit of perfection in split sheath technology. Trust the Dalton Difference.

Terminal Options2019-05-13


Terminal Options


Small diameter heaters have small diameter terminal pins into which the lead

wire is crimped.  Generally, this is not a problem because the wattage is not

too high and the amperage is very low.   But if the application requires higher  

amperage-carrying ability or resistance to repeated flexing, larger diameter  

wire must be employed.


When small diameter pins exclude the use of larger gauge wire, the AFX

termination is used.  A tapered pin is used to accommodate the larger O.D.

of the wire and the smaller end is welded onto the terminal pin.


One other benefit of this construction is that the wire is inserted into the termination

with the insulation.  When a wire is crimped into a terminal pin, that crimp becomes

the focus point for any flexing and stress on the wire.  But the AFX termination

includes the insulation and provides support for the wire.  It also displaces the focus

of the stress to a point that includes insulation.


This is an ideal construction if you have a small diameter heater and the need for

higher amperage capacity or protection against finer wire breakage due to flexing

or cycling as in a packaging machine and other sealing operations.

Life Expectancy2019-05-13

Life Expectancy


How long does a Watt-Flex® cartridge heater last?  This is a common question that does not have

a definitive answer. It depends on a variety of factors including size of the bore, heat sink material,

watt density of the heater, set point temperature, type of controller, amperage (function of voltage),

presence of contamination, shifts per day and a number of other factors.  We state that our heater

will last up to four times longer in the same application as a conventional heater ... but where do we

get that number?


In house tests can be skewed to produce favorable results so we choose to look at real world

applications and measure our success from customer testimonials.  Back from a trip, one of our

Regional Managers reported that he was in a shop looking at a machine being rebuilt. As part of their

PM the customer was replacing the Watt-Flex cartridge heaters and gave him the old units. From

the date code he found the heaters was over 11 years old and had operated almost continuously

with a reasonably high watt density. Further tests on the heaters proved them to be not only electrically

sound but still within the resistance spec.


This customer had tried less expensive conventional heaters but never got more than one year's

service from them.  We are always promoting the issue of price vs. cost ... this was one customer

that understood the concept well.

Speed Wins2019-04-05

Speed Wins

In today’s business world, regardless of what industry you’re in,

if you’re not fast, you cannot survive.  Customers expect immediate

response and don’t have time to waste.  At Dalton, responding quickly

is an absolute must.  We know that lead response within hours increases

our chances of winning significantly.  That’s why our response objective

is to address all quotes within an hour.  We know that customers who

don’t hear from you right away will look for alternatives.  Given that the

Watt-Flex® cartridge heaters are different from conventional cartridge

heaters, we have to overcome more to get the sale. Rapid response

becomes synonymous with both innovation and quality and creates a

high expectation in your customer’s mind.


Speed alone will not necessarily get the job done.  To make the right

recommendation, one has to be able to separate critical data from the

non-essential.  Because we focus on our Watt-Flex split sheath design,

we have the experience and knowledge to perform this complicated task

quickly.  The key to a correctly configured fast quote depends on knowing

the few required specifications, which are listed below for easy fast reference. 

Items on the left side are “must have” information and items on the right are

“like-to-have” …

A rapid response will be unnecessarily delayed when these “must have” specifications

are unknown.  Precious time ticks away if you have to go back to the customer with

additional questions.  When it comes to speed, we know we must deliver it every day. 

Dalton has the speed and ability to make the difference and win. 

Trust the Dalton Difference to finish first.

Consistent Quality Wins


Dalton’s ability to consistently craft custom made to order heaters is

one of the reasons Dalton continues to win at customers. Since I

arrived 16 months ago, I have seen us compete and win against low cost,

low quality heaters despite our higher price per cartridge. 


This week we had two situations where seam sealing customers were

frustrated with low-cost conventional heaters.   One customer had to

scrap many heaters due to lead wire failure during installation and another

was unable to achieve a stable, consistent seam seal.  We won the

business at both customers because of our high quality construction and

due to our unique continuous coil design. 


Of course, Dalton’s Watt-Flex® continuous coil design provides unmatched

even heat in sealing bar applications.  However, it is our production team’s

attention to details that ensures our customers get the highest quality

custom crafted heater that makes the real difference.


It is our dedicated team of assembly and production workers that give

us the edge against competition. They are the unsung heroes.  They

take great pride in the job they do and the company overall.  They are

the ones responsible for our high quality, consistent, reliable,

performance that we have all come to rely on.   


On this St. Patrick’s weekend, I tip my hat in appreciation to the

men and women of Dalton who deliver on our promise of making the

world’s best heater.




  Friday Fun Facts

March 17 is widely accepted as the date of St. Patrick’s death in A.D. 461.

St. Patrick was born in Britain as Maewyn Succat. At age 16, he was

kidnapped from his home on the west coast and carried off to Ireland to

become a slave. After six years, he escaped. Upon returning home,

he spent the next 15 years preparing for his missionary work. When

he became a priest, his name was changed to Patricius,

and eventually, Patrick.


Interestingly, St Patrick was known for wearing blue.  He used the

shamrock to demonstrate how “the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit”

could be separate entities, yet one in the same.  Today, many people

associate the shamrock as representing Ireland, in fact the harp is the

symbol of Ireland.


Armed with these fun facts, let us celebrate this weekend to honor

St. Patrick.  Savor the boiled corned beef dinner.  Be swept up in the

Celtic music and toast this acclaimed patron saint of the emerald Isle.

Diode - Misunderstood Option2019-03-01

Diode – Misunderstood Option


di·ode  /ˈdīˌōd/  noun a semiconductor device with two terminals,

typically allowing the flow of current in one direction only. Diodes

are also known as rectifiers because they change alternating

current (ac) into direct current (dc).


There are times when an Request For Quote (RFQ) is received,

we enter the heater specifications into our heater configurator

and we are notified that the coil wire is too fine to manufacture.

In these instances we typically ask if two heaters of half voltage

can be used in a series connection. This typically allows the coil

wire diameter to increase up to 5 gauge sizes.


This is not always possible or desirable to the customer.  Or the

user may prefer our heater due to the exclusive “hot tip” feature

or because of bore seizure problems. In those circumstances,

using a diode in-line with one of the power lead wires may be a

great solution.


Installing an in-line diode with a resistor allows the current to flow

in only one direction.  This blocks the current when the polarity of

the AC voltage reverses and effectively reduces the wattage in half. 


With this in mind, we can double the wattage to increase the coil

wire up to the next gauge size and in many cases allows us to

wind a suitable resistance coil for the heater. This concept was

proven by one of our engineers who measured amperage of a

heater without a diode. And when a diode was added “In-line” to

one of the power leads the amperage was reduced in half.


Using Ohms Law:  Watts = Volts x Amperes this is confirmed.

Although diodes are rarely used, they can sometimes make the

difference between a sale and a referral to another heater. You

may want to discuss this option further with your Regional Sales

Manager  in order to discuss the particulars of using a diode

such as its’ size and the need to by-pass the diode to check resistance.

But what really separates Dalton from everyone else, is our ability to routinely 

perform the impossible. 


Yesterday a customer called in a dire emergency.  Their customer was

down and needed just one heater, it was both long and complex.  We sprang

into action.  We found a heater that was slightly shorter but could be used

in the application.  The heater was dried over-night, header welded, lead

wires attached and will be on a FEDEX plane this afternoon. 


Once again, Dalton does the impossible, crisis averted, and the legendary

Dalton Difference lives on.
