With VS9X vacuum chamber belt machine, Sealed Air is raising the bar in productivity, hygiene, maintenance and performance monitoring. The sealing bar length of up to 1,200 mm is the key to high capacity. A speed-controlled integrated vacuum booster pump enables fast cycle speeds, leading to three vacuum cycles per minute. Production efficiency goes hand in hand with the sector’s highest demands for food safety. All-round machine access, including chamber actuation allowing a 400 mm chamber opening allow effective, thorough cleaning. Closing the loop to cost-saving, resultant easy maintenance means reduced downtime. This machine comes in two versions, one with a standard infeed conveyor and the other with an integrated buffer conveyor for further labour cost reduction and easy line or automation integration. Both are compatible with all sealed Air bag packaging innovations, including easy opening systems. The storage of 15 recipes in the machine’s memory facilitates fast setting changes via a touch-screen. Food safety and shelf life extension are added to the equation during the vacuum packing thanks to consistently excellent seal quality provided by the UltraSeal microprocessor controlled sealing system and extended shelf life due to an advanced Vacuum Control System (VCS).
