Vacuum packaging is the process of removing air from a bag prior to sealing. This process is commonly performed within the food industry using a vacuum chamber machine. But other industries use vacuum packaging as well, such as electronics, aviation, pharmaceutical and many others.
Vacuum packaging is primarily used to extend the shelf life of perishable foods such as meats and cheeses by reducing atmospheric oxygen and limiting the growth of aerobic bacteria. It is also commonly used to store dry foods over a long period of time, such as cereals, nuts, cured meats, coffee, and potato chips. This form of packaging is becoming increasingly popular in other industries such as electronics and medical fields for its advantages of providing a clean, dry, and low oxygen environment for sensitive goods.
First, you need to determine what size vacuum pouches you will be using. Then, you will need to consider how many packages you will need to seal on a daily basis, and how many hours you wish to operate. Once the above is determined, then you can contact us and we will determine which machine is best for your application.
Busch USA vacuum pumps are standard in most vacuum chamber machines we sell. They are optional in the 350, 420, and 520 series. The TC280 comes equipped with an Italian made DVP pump that has proven to be a very reliable alternative to Busch.
We produce most of our machines in Ontario, California – where our machines undergo final assembly, inspection, and approval. However, it takes over 1,000 parts to make one machine and so we source our parts from Germany, Taiwan, Mexico and even here in our own backyard.
