Leak-free packaging that maintains product quality
Whether for food preparation, laboratory work or industrial use, vacuum packing liquids offers many advantages. As pressure in the chamber reduces, so does the boiling point of the liquid, which means you need a machine that detects boiling point. This ensures that all liquids are properly packaged and that they retain their quality. It also prevents contamination of the pump. If you want to package soups, sauces, cocktails or other liquid products, choose a Henkelman chamber vacuuming machine with the liquid control option. This gives you endless possibilities.
Which liquids can be vacuum packed?
Advantages of vacuum packing liquids
Extended shelf life
Vacuum packing removes virtually all the oxygen from the packaging. This helps minimise exposure to oxygen which reduces oxidation and spoilage. This extends the shelf life of the liquid.
Maintain freshness and flavour (nutrition)
The absence of air in the packaging minimises the chance of bacterial growth. This preserves the flavour and freshness of liquids, which is especially important for drinks, sauces and soups.
Optimised storage and transport
Removing air from the packaging reduces the size of liquid packages. This more compact size means that you need less space to store and transport your products.
For certain liquid products such as syrups, vacuum sealing offers the benefit of minimising crystallisation. This means that each product retains its flavour and quality.
Conservation of nutrients
When vacuum packing nutrient-rich liquids, the absence of oxygen slows down the breakdown of nutrients.
Vacuum packing liquids
Stops the vacuuming process when evaporation is detected. This prevents contamination of the chamber, oxidation of the pump, and dehydration and loss of weight
Advanced Control System (ACS)
Advanced full color operating system with 20 pre-programmed or user-configurable programs and extra functions for optimal user-friendliness.
Inclined insert plate
Positions the vacuum bag at an angle. This makes it easier and more efficient to vacuum pack fluids and powders.

If you need advice on which machine best suits your needs and your budget, we are happy to help you make the right choice.
Frequently asked questions
Pressure in the vacuuming machine decreases during the vacuuming process. This also lowers the boiling temperature of any liquids present in your product. When the vacuum chamber reaches a pressure that results in a boiling temperature that is lower than the actual temperature of the product, the liquid present will boil.
No. The vacuuming process stops when a product boils. This may mean that the intended final vacuum pressure is not achieved. You do not have to discard your products, but the shelf life of your product may be reduced.
That depends on the product. There is hardly any effect on pure liquids such as water. Is liquid part of your product or is water incorporated into the product? Then it is possible that the water will evaporate when it boils. This can dry the product out. A composite product containing liquid can also curdle.
There are several settings you can adjust to change the cycle speed of our automatic vacuum packing machines. These may also have an effect on the final packaging result.
