The benefits of a Henkelman for you
Robust quality & optimal hygiene
Henkelman machines are specially developed for the food production industry. The machines are easy to keep clean and require very little maintenance, which guarantees continuity. All machines are certified to meet CE or UL/CSA requirements and meet all European and North American requirements in terms of safety, health and environmental protection.
Flavor and weight retention
Vacuum-sealing food products reduces the growth of bacteria and therefore extends the shelf life without having to add preservatives. Fish products that are vacuum-packed retain their weight, flavour and aroma. This also prevents dehydration, freezer burn and mould. Your fish has a longer shelf life compared to refrigeration and retains its quality when frozen.
Optimal storage & transport
Vacuum-packed and sealed products can be stored and transported hygienically. As your product is perfectly packaged, it is possible to store different packages together. This optimizes both storage space and transport.
Best vacuuming machines for fish
Salt corrodes certain materials. If you work with salty products, such as in the fish industry, you need a stainless steel vacuuming machine. The Henkelman range includes various machines that are made entirely from stainless steel.
Professional presentation by using a Diptank
Shrink packaging results in a more tightly packed product with a smoother surface. This improves the presentation and aesthetics of your product. In combination with a Henkelman vacuuming machine, a dip tank results in sleek, professional packaging using shrink-wrap technology. Products are vacuum sealed in special shrink-wrap bags and then briefly immersed in warm water.

Frequently asked questions
Yes. For an optimal packaging result but you should take into account that the selected program settings are optimal for all products.
You can vacuum pack fish with all Henkelman vacuum packing machines. Our most popular vacuuming machine for packaging fish is the Marlin 90. This is because of its specific dimensions. The Marlin is also made of stainless steel and has a plastic lid. Stainless steel is an ideal material for packaging salty products, simply because salt corrodes other materials.
Yes. The robust construction of the Polar makes these vacuum packing machines suitable for industrial use.
In general, foodstuffs should not come into direct contact with aluminium. As products are packaged in a vacuum bag, the product will never come into direct contact with the aluminium of the chamber. This means that a Falcon vacuum packing machine can be used in (kitchens in) the food industry.
Henkelman automatic vacuum packing machines can be fitted in a line with other machines. However, they do not exchange data or communicate with other machines.
