Abstract : The patent relates to a device whereby heat sealing opposed thermoplastic surfaces of open ended pouches, whose sealing surfaces are likely to be contaminated with liquids or fatty substances is accomplished by forcing a transversely radiused, heated sealing bar against the opposed unsealed sheets of the pouch which are supported by a resilient anvil, thereby squeezing the contaminants out of the sealing area before the sheets fuse together and in those cases where solid particulate contaminants are found in the sealing area utilizing steam flushing to clean the sealing surfaces prior to sealing.
