Product Review: VacMaster VP210 Dry Piston Pump Chamber Vacuum Sealer
The VacMaster VP 210 chamber machine provides a solution to the problem posed by vacuum packaging machines currently on the market: how to draw liquids and liquids rich foods. The current machines on the market are suction machines, which means that the air is sucked out of the vacuum bag and then the bag is sealed. However, with air, liquids are also sucked out of the bag, leading to partial or broken joints. The VP210 chamber machine uses a different technology to eliminate this problem. When sealed with our chamber machine, the sealed vacuum bag is placed inside the chamber of the machine, and the lid is closed. Then, the air is sucked out of the entire chamber, not just the bag, allowing the air pressure inside and outside the bag to remain equal and the liquids stay in the bag. The bag is then sealed and the air is released into the chamber. In addition, the chamber machine can reach a higher vacuum level. Most vacuum machines reach a vacuum level of 24-26 hg, while chamber machines are able to achieve a vacuum level of 27-29 hg.
Using advanced chamber technology, the VP210 is able to vacuum seal bags with liquid content unlike standard vacuum sealers. Rather than simply sucking the air out of the pocket, this chamber machine draws air from the entire chamber, so the liquid stays inside the bag and is sealed.
A front digital control panel with four touch buttons provides the user with simple and easy operation of the machine. The pressure gauge gauge allows easy and convenient monitoring of the pressure level.
The single retractable 10-inch seal bar with double seal wire allows you to seal bags up to 10-inches wide and 13-inches in length, making this machine geared for a wide variety of pouch sizes. The pump is a 2-cylinder dry rocker piston pump, which makes the unit maintenance-free.
It is a costly and cumbersome machine, but packed in quality to justify its size and cost.
