- 4. Machines - How many packages a minute can be made with a vacuum pack machine?
Most Henkelman chamber machines offer a rate of 2 cycles a minute.
This depends on the product (dry or liquid, hot or cold), on the ratio of the volume of the chamber to the volume of the product, the vacuum level to be achieved, the reinjection or not of gas, the seal time sufficient for the material of the bag, the capacity of the vacuum pump.
It is possible to carry out several packaging processes per cycle with a longer seal bar, or a configuration with several seal bars or even with double chamber machines (the second chamber is loaded while the cycle is done in the first, then vice-versa)
- 5. Applications - Why vacuum pack?
Vacuum packages are done to protect the products. For food products, vacuum packing helps to extend the shelf life by 2 to 6 times longer than in standard cold chamber storage conditions. For industrial products, vacuum packaging enables the products to be protected during storage and transportation but also saves on the space taken up and avoids fraud. In catering, vacuum packaging enables you to perform sous-vide cooking.
