Although vacuum chamber sealers are best known use is food packaging they are used in a wide variety of industries. They are also used in the electronics, medical and pharmaceutical industries just to name a few.
In the food industry in general and in the meat industry in particular the major reason to use a vacuum chamber sealer in to eliminate oxygen from the package as oxygen is a major factor in food spoilage. In most meat packaging applications you are looking for the lowest residual oxygen possible inside your package and this is where vacuum chamber sealers with their fully enclosed vacuum cavities and large oil filled, vane type vacuum pumps really shine.
Promarksvac TM & TMC Series Vacuum Marinating Tumblers & Massagers
Promarksvac manufactures two series of vacuum marinating tumblers & massagers. Their TMC Series features a non-continuous vacuum system and is their most cost conscious line of tumblers and their TM Series feature continuous vacuum systems in both tumblers and the higher throughput massager models.
We are often asked why choose would I choose one type of vacuum system over the other and that is a good question and the answer lies in what system best meets your needs. In order to find the answer you need to consider all of your needs, economic, type of product, desired results, ease of use as well as others that may be on your list. With this in mind let us take a closer look at the two different vacuum systems.
Tumblers are also known as barrel tumblers and drum tumblers circulate its contents to deburr, burnish and clean, however, in the meat industry contents are rotated and flipped onto itself with a liquid marinade, in a process called massaging to pull in moisture into the meat for more flavorful food.
A Vacuum Tumbler is used primarily in the meat industry to remove air from the tumbling process; this method pulls air out of the drum and forces the marinade into the food. Vacuum Tumblers are used by butchers and well-renowned chefs to enhance the flavor and quality of their food.

There’s lots going on and sometimes its exciting and sometimes it’s not, but in the frozen meat and poultry packaging industry and we wanted to share some items that may make you think.
In terms of implementation and innovation, we are seeing more and more re-sealable products. You find it in the freezer, you use it, and you re-close it. You can use it again and again. Also there are more portion packaging options, where you can buy a few pounds in bulk and it comes packed in portions. It alleviates the problem most people have when they open a product and shove the rest back into the freezer, where it gets freezer burn. Instead, it remains fresh and flavorful and it will look just as good as the day you purchased it.
