New and standard on ACS!


The Jars function is a standard function on the ACS panel. It is used to vacuum seal jars or food containers in seconds with only a single push of a button. Just place the jars or food container with lid in the chamber, select the Jars function and close the lid. With this function, every single jar is being sealed at a maximum end vacuum of 99.8% during a shortened cycle, since the phases of the heating of the seal bars and Soft Air are being eliminated. All these parameters are programmed in the software settings of the ACS control for a fast, safe and secure vacuum seal! You can also read our blog for more info.

Marinating is a standard function on the Henkelman ACS. It is used to create better marinated food products. Just put the marinated product in the vacuum chamber and start the vacuum packaging cycle. Thanks to the smart software that generates a pulsating movement of air, the structure of the product is opened. This enables the marinade to maximally penetrate the product. The marinade is being absorbed in minutes instead of hours.

Tenderizing is a standard function on the Henkelman ACS. It is used to keep the vacuum chamber under a certain level of vacuum for a period of time, with a maximum of 30 minutes. The continuous pressure difference between the cells of the product and the pressure in the chamber, will cause the cell structure to lacerate. Breaking down cell structure creates a more tender product. It is used for aero chocolate and bamboo.

Red meat

Red meat is a standard function on the Henkelman ACS. By means of small and fast injections of air, the Red meat function stops the degassing of the meat moisture during the seal phase. This prevents the formation of air chambers in the vacuum package. Create a significant improvement of the quality and the shelf life of red meat.

With Sequential vacuum the air is extracted, the cycle is paused, the air is extracted again, the cycle is paused again, and so on. Up to a maximum of 5 steps. Especially suitable for products that contain a lot of air, like pate, mousse and cheese.
