Table-Top Modified Atmosphere Packaging Machine for start-up companies looking to extend shelf-life of food products. This entry level MAP machine is capable of producing up to 8 containers a minute with a residual oxygen level of 0.1%. The maximum container size is 9 inches by 7 inches by 4 inches tall or 6 inches in diameter by 4 inches tall for round containers. This is the lowest cost Modified Atmosphere Packaging Machine of this type on the market with prices starting at $20,870 including 1 set of custom tooling to match your container size. Some of the features on this machine include:
Modified Atmosphere Packaging Bag or Pouch Sealer this machine is fully programmable for precise vacuum and gas flushing of food products, medical devices or electronic parts. If the product is packed in a pouch or bag and needs the residual oxygen removed this is the lowest cost machine available for this application. The Semi-Automatic Modified Atmosphere Packaging Pouch Sealer shown on the right which is capable of up to 10-15 pouches per minute.Semi-Automatic Modified Atmosphere Packaging Bag/Pouch Sealer Special Features:
Single Station Modified Atmosphere Packaging Machines are free-standing but portable single station Modified Atmosphere Packaging systems that will produce from 6 to 20 trays per minute with a residual oxygen level of 0.05% on most products. The total maximum sealing area 14.5 inches by 11 inches by 12 inches tall or round containers up to 7 inches in diameter. These economical systems are ideal for small companies, R&D and trial/test products.Single Station Modified Atmosphere Packaging Machines Special Features:
Watch this video of a Modified Atmosphere Packaging Equipment including a MAP Gas Flush Pouch Sealer, a Rotary Modified Atmosphere Packaging Machine and a In-Line Modified Atmosphere Packaging Machine.
This video shows how Modified Atmosphere Packaging Equipment works: The food is packed in to a APET, CPET or PP tray or bag and either conveyed or manually placed into the flushing/sealing area of the Modified Atmosphere Packaging Equipment. Once in the seal area, if the package is a tray it either receives a lid or a film barrier ready for sealing. In some cases a vacuum is applied to the bag or package and then in both cases a specifically chosen MAP gas flushes the headspace area of the tray or bag. The package now has a Modified Atmosphere and the film, lid or bag is quickly sealed before a significant amount of the gas is lost.
Rotary Modified Atmosphere Packaging Machine is for more automated MAP applications. The Rotary MAP Machine can be outfitted with automatic container feeding, filling and finished package rejection options for production speeds up to 45 trays per minute with 0.05% residual oxygen. These modified atmosphere packaging machines can be used for producing packaged meat, fish, fruit and vegetables, ready to eat meals, salads, sandwiches, pasta, baked goods, cakes, cookies, pastries, dairy products, cheeses, yogurt, creams, dry goods, nuts, dry fruit, powders, spices, mixes salad dressings and sauces.Rotary Modified Atmosphere Packaging Machine Features and Options:
High-Speed Inline Modified Atmosphere Packaging Machine is a high-speed Modified Atmosphere (MAP) Packaging Machine with single or dual infeed for maximum production speeds. With this High-Speed MAP Machine it is possible to produce up to 80 modified atmosphere packages per minute! This machine has improved residual oxygen reduction levels down to 0.05% while also reducing MAP gas consumption and eliminates the need for mechanical vacuum assistance so food products are not damaged during the MAP process
High-Speed Inline Modified Atmosphere Packaging Machine Features:
Automatic Bagging Machine with Modified Atmosphere Packaging this is a continuous motion bagging machine that runs gusset, pillow, flat bottom, zipper, side gusset, and stand-up bags and is ideal for powders, granular and liquids at speeds up to 40 bags per minute. The open/inline design allows the operator to see all the stations while standing at the touchscreen HMI. This makes product changeover, servicing and adjustments easier and faster. The open concept design, both front and back, the unit is easy to set-up, operate, clean, and service. The smooth mechanical camshaft driven mechanism provides consistent movement of bags with no risk of de-synchronization
Automatic Bagging Machine with Modified Atmosphere Packaging Features:
Vertical Form Fill Seal Machines with Gas Flush for producing products in pillow pouches or bags. These bagging machines are designed for high-speed packaging applications. We have Vertical Form Fill Seal Machines that will make pouches from laminated lay-flat roll-stock as small as 1 inch wide and 2 inches tall, all the way up to 12 inches wide and 16 inches tall.
