When you’re considering different ways and machines that will seal your product into packages, one such machine to consider is the vacuum sealer. Depending on what you are selling, you may want to get all of the excess air out of the package before shipping, either due to the potential for spoilage or simply taking up excess space that could be better utilized. If you’re on the fence between a vacuum sealer and another way of sealing your packages, consider the benefits of purchasing a used vacuum sealer from High Performance Packaging.
Remove Air Entirely or Replace with Inert Gas
Depending on what you’re packaging, it might be more beneficial to have the package completely devoid of extra air—thus the packaging sealed tightly around the product. The alternative to this option is using a gas flush option, which replaces the air in the package with an inert gas, so that your product is oxygen free, yet the contents are not sucked down with pressure or crushed by the packaging. For example, many food products like potato chips are packaged in this manner.
Preserve Products for a Long Time
When perishables are packaged, they either have a relatively short shelf life, or they are vacuum packed. Vacuum packaging food products like cheeses, tofu, meats and more can extend the length of time they are safe to eat, since they are not exposed to any air. Vacuum sealing protects against bacterial growth and molding, and keeps food fresher longer. If you’re not packaging food, vacuum sealers are still a great option to consider. They prevent the product from bouncing around within a package that has a lot of air in it, which can cause damage or breakage. Using a vacuum sealer can ensure that your package not only stays safe, but that you can pack more of them into one box for shipping. Save money on shipping and preserve your products while keeping them safe and securely sealed by using a vacuum sealer.
