Vacuum-pouch sealing

April 3, 2007




Meat and cheese processors and others requiring automated vacuum-pouch sealing can use Multivac’s B400 belted chamber system, which features a hygienic design with vacuum ports built into the lid and retractable side skirts for easy cleaning. The height-adjustable seal bars are water-cooled and bi-active, making the system suitable for shrink-bag applications. Stacked vacuum pumps and a built-in booster pump assure quick air evacuation, says the company.
