Keep Any Food Fresh With Commercial Vacuum Sealer Machines
Commercial vacuum sealer machines offer the easiest and most efficient way of preserving foods. They are also the most versatile food packaging machines as you can vacuum seal almost everything, from meats and dairy products to liquids and powders. Vacuum sealers can extend the shelf life up to five times longer than conventional methods. For example, meat stored in a freezer stays fresh for nearly six months. However, when vacuum sealed, it can retain its freshness for 2-3 years.
How Commercial Vacuum Sealer Machines Work
Commercial vacuum sealer machines remove the air from storage bags and the entire space around food. Once the air is pumped out, the vacuum sealer machine heats the edges of the bag and finishes the sealing process. The result is a completely airtight bag. Because no oxygen is left inside the bag, there is no atmosphere for bacteria growth. Commercial or residential users can store vast amounts of products this way. Vacuum-sealed bags also enable you to organize your freezers, refrigerators, or pantry better, occupying less space.
Countertop Vs. Floor Vacuum Sealers
One of the greatest things about commercial vacuum sealer machines is that you do not have to buy specific bags. These machines work well with any bag designed as a vacuum bag. Yet, not all commercial vacuum sealers are the same. The primary feature that marks a difference is the production capacity. Countertop vacuum sealers are tough and productive enough to meet the medium to high sealing demands of restaurants, hotels, butchers, and other foodservice establishments. Floor models are better suited for industrial applications like meat production plants or food processing facilities.
Chamber Vs. External Vacuum Sealers
Depending on the sealing process, commercial vacuum sealer machines have two types. External, or out-of-chamber sealers, work by sucking the air out of the bag. You align the bag with the sealer bar. The machine vacuums the air out and fuses the bag. The bag remains outside the machine. They are not suitable for liquids since they may spill out during the process. External vacuum sealers are more user-friendly and less expensive. They are ideal for light-duty commercial use.
Chamber vacuum sealers are more expensive but best for sealing large batches of products. If you often buy ingredients in bulk to save money, you need a chamber machine. These vacuum sealers have one or two chambers where the sealing is done. The machine uses pressure to pump the air out of the bag. The oil pump speeds up the sealing process. They work faster and last longer. Plus, they can seal almost any food item, liquid or solid. With advanced adjustable settings, you can use them for marinating and sealing dishes for sous vide cooking.
