processing companies use chamber machines for
products that are big or irregularly shaped, or as
backups for their high-volume packaging equipment - even as test machines in their R&D labs."
Meat processors taking advantage of vacuum
chamber packaging technology experience a number of benefits. First, they will achieve extended
shelf life with the use of vacuum packaging and
modified atmosphere packaging. There is also
the benefit of a low cost of entry. ou can start
vacuum packaging for ust a few thousand dollars
- and pouches cost pennies each," Spencer says.
The systems are also very easy to use, Spencer
adds. Simply set a few parameters - such as
desired pressure and seal time - and close the
lid. That's it. And to top it off, the machines are
extremely versatile. If it fits in the chamber, it
can be packaged, with no tooling changeovers.

e haven't needed to have it serviced
