What is a vacuum sealing machine?
Vacuum sealers operate differently from vacuum chambers in that the bags are placed externally to the machine rather than inside it. Air is then removed and the bag is sealed. It is useful for these processes to occur outside of the machine when products need to be vacuum packed in a certain way and the operator, therefore, needs to survey the pack as it is being processed.
The Magvac power sealer is a validated, heavy-duty stainless-steel vacuum sealer that is food safe and hence, suitable for a wide range of products including consumables and pharmaceuticals. It has been built according to the latest directives and is industrial grade due to the efficiency of its operation. Used in both vacuum packaging and modified atmosphere packaging, a validated machine means that the same temperature and pressure is applied each time a product is sealed for consistency.
What versions of packaging machines are available?Kite’s commercial sealing machines are available in three different seal bar lengths: 520mm, 720mm and 1020mm. As a result, you can select the model best suited for your specific goods, whether that is pre-prepared meal portions or pharmaceutical products. The sealer is able to accommodate a variety of different sized goods, making it the ideal option for several industries. As well as a pump capacity of 11.3 m3/h, it has the ability to seal bags with a thickness of up to 400 micron.
Is a commercial vacuum sealer worth it?
For growing businesses, particularly in the food and pharmaceutical industry, high specification vacuum packing machines are indispensable. Their ability to extend the life of food by removing air grants you the flexibility to prepare foods in advance of a service without them spoiling.
This specific model has enhanced efficiency features to further elevate your operation. The semi-automation of a foot pedal allows both hands to be free to handle the product and rapidly complete vacuum sealing tasks.
Additionally, there are an array of accessories available to scale up the machine to suit certain purposes:
Support stand: This high-quality stand allows adjustability in terms of the height and sealing angle of the machine. Hence, the ergonomic nature of the machine is increased to suit the user.
Roller conveyor attachment: This sophisticated accessory allows the machine to be used in a semi-automatic manner that is ideal when handling heavier products that may need to be rolled into the correct sealing position before reaching the machine. The conveyor is attached to the support frame and thus, must be used in conjunction with the support stand.
Bag support attachment: This accessory is attached to the machine to hold the weight of a bag during the sealing process and is suitable for heavy duty products.
Work table attachment: This addition attaches onto the support system and can carry lighter packages during sealing.
How do you use an industrial vacuum sealer?This MagVac model can be used in a variety of different ways thanks to the 9 programs available on the user-friendly digital panel. These features can be used to alter the vacuum and gas and one seal program, including carrying out the process of gas flushing. This can replace silica gel, therefore reducing waste and cost over time.
