Solutions for vacuum packaging

Vacuum packaging is an efficient way of extending the shelf life of food products and of protecting products from external elements. Henkelman supplies vacuum chamber packaging solutions for numerous industries and various kinds of products. 

Who can use vacuum sealing?

Vacuum sealing is an interesting option for every company that wants to package small to medium-sized food and non-food products. The extensive Henkelman range of single and double chamber vacuuming machines offers a variety of packaging solutions, regardless of the industry you work in. With so many optional extras and accessories, you can design each machine to fit seamlessly into the packaging process on your work floor.

Top six reasons to vacuum pack:


Extends the lifespan of fresh products

Minimizes (food) waste

Airtight packaging, free of contamination and moisture

Prevents cross-contamination and increases food safety

Protects against dehydration, freezer burn and mold

Generates a package with a professional appearance

Can every product be vacuum packed?

From marinated fish to whole salmon or meat on the bone. And from cut vegetables, soup and coffee to electronic chips, clothing, banknotes or other non-food products. With a Henkelman machine you can vacuum pack a wide range of products. 

How does vacuuming work?

Vacuum means ‘without air’. A vacuum chamber machine removes 99.8% of the air from the chamber and package. It then seals the packaging airtight. Vacuum packaging also protects against contamination and moisture and ensures volume reduction, process optimization and fraud prevention.

Frequently asked questions



Why vacuum pack?

Vacuum packing results in a longer shelf life. This is because the oxygen is removed during the vacuuming process. This slows down the ripening process. The vacuum bag also gives your product air and liquid-tight protection against external factors. 


For how many hours can a Henkelman vacuum packing machine be used?

This depends on the model vacuum packing machine. According to our guidelines, a table top model can be used for 5 hours a day. For floor models and double chamber vacuum packing machines, this is 8 hours per day. It is important that there is sufficient ventilation around the machine to prevent overheating. Some machines can also be upgraded with a heavy duty option, making them operational for up to 20 hours a day.
