Suction Vacuum Sealer vs Chamber Vacuum Sealer

Suction Vacuum Sealer vs Chamber Vacuum Sealer

“a slight difference in a vacuum sealer can alter the outcomes of your endeavors…”

If you are in search of a vacuum sealer, you are likely looking for the perfect one that ensures your packaging needs are met. The simple fact is that a slight difference in a vacuum sealer can alter the outcomes of your endeavors just as certain jars or containers function more appropriately for storing different foods. Awareness of these differences is vital. Today, we will provide an educated explanation of the difference between a suction and chamber vacuum sealer machine regarding function, affordability, durability and vacuum draw based on pump type, and more!

Suction Vacuum Sealer vs Chamber Vacuum Sealer

Suction Vacuum Sealer

Suction vacuum sealers are commonly referred to as suction, edge, or external vacuum sealers. The names comply when considering the sealing process. To vacuum seal use an edge vacuum sealer, place the item in the bag then enclose the open end of the bag on the seal bar. It then sucks the air from the open end of the bag and seals the bag closed. In some cases, customers will use a roll form of this product. In these situations, the user needs to seal one end, then insert the product, and then seal.

Vacuum Sealer (CLOSED)

Chamber Vacuum Sealer

To vacuum seal using a chamber vacuum sealer, slide the open side of the pouch into the pouch clips in the chamber, close the lid, and all three cycles will transpire automatically.

Now, when a vacuum is applied to a liquid, it will experience a cold rapid boil. What is a cold rapid boil? Let’s start by defining boiling. Boiling is the transition state of liquid turning to gas when it reaches the same atmospheric pressure being exerted on the liquid (1). As atmospheric pressure drops, the boiling point decreases accordingly.

For example, at sea level, with an atmospheric pressure is 29.92 Hg the boiling point is 212 °F. At an elevation of 2000 ft, the atmospheric pressure is about 27.82 Hg, decreasing the boiling point to 208 °F. Imagine what the boiling point reaches if the pressure nears 0 Hg as occurs using an oil pump!

When the rapid boil begins, this is your sign that maximum draw has occurred. Use the skip function to bypass the remainder of the cycle time as the liquid may climb out of the pouch if the rapid boil continues. Set one of the programs to those observed cycle times for your next pouch and you’re all set to save time and limit waste!

JVR Vac100 - Chamber Vacuum Sealer

Suction Vacuum Sealer

Due to its external vacuum process, a pressure imbalance is produced between the outside and inside of the bag. This can cause a siphoning effect when sealing foods containing liquids. So for items such as sauces or marinading meat, the pressure imbalance may pull those liquids towards the machine causing the liquids to either enter the machine or create a faulty seal allowing air back into the bag which defeats the purpose of the vacuum.

Consequently, external vacuum sealers can vacuum seal any dry, solid, or frozen food, but not liquids.

Some companies may suggest freezing the liquid before vacuum sealing, yet this prolongs the food storage process.

Vacuum Sealer (OPENED)

Chamber Vacuum Sealer

Alternatively, due to the enclosed chamber of the chamber vacuum sealer, the pressure is equally distributed between the outside and inside of the bag within the chamber promoting the liquids to stay in place inside the pouch.

Therefore, the chamber vacuum sealer machine can seal liquids with complete assurance as the siphoning effect does not apply!

JVR Vac110 - Chamber Vacuum Sealer, chamber vacuum sealers

Taking into account durability, vacuum draw, and noise pollution, a chamber vacuum sealer machine with an oil pump takes the gold!

It is important to consider that not all chamber vacuum sealers contain oil-lubricated pumps. Therefore, if you want these benefits, confirm the vacuum sealing machine holds an oil-lubricated pump.

Oil vs Dry Pump - Timeline

Click image to enlarge

The Benefits of an Oil-Lubricated Pump Explained

1) Increased Durability

The durability of an oil pump is unmatched due to its ability to expel moisture. The heat created when in operation allows for any moisture to separate from the oil. Moisture bypasses the filter and is vaporized out of the machine while the oil returns to the pump for reuse.

How does this prolong the life of the pump? Moisture would corrode the materials within the pump. Since the oil pump dispels the moisture from the machine, this demotes the chance of internal corrosion. With this feature, the pump can service you for over 10 years with proper maintenance!

Additionally, the transfer of heat energy allows these vacuum sealers to run without needing a break due to overheating. In contrast, an external vacuum sealer machine will need time to cool as the heat is consistently building up without being transferred as another energy source.

JVR Vac110 - Chamber Vacuum Sealer

2) Increased Quality

Vacuum packaging is well-known for its effectiveness because the less contact with oxygen the product has, the longer it can go without spoiling. Oil-lubricated chamber vacuum sealers pull the most air by up to 19.8% more than dry piston pumps found in suction vacuum sealers allowing for the least contact with oxygen or moisture in the air!

How do oil pumps outshine dry piston pumps this drastically? The vanes within the oil pumps are designed to spin in a cyclical motion that barely slides by the pump’s housing by thousandths of an inch. The proximity of the rotary vanes to the housing creates a strong suction allowing for great vacuum power.

The vacuum produced by this mechanism greatly surpasses the 80% removed by dry piston pumps in edge sealers by up to 19.8% – you do the math! Talk about no freezer burn, longer shelf life, and even more flavorful sous vide cooking!

Recall that not all chamber vacuum sealers contain oil pumps. Dry piston chamber vacuum sealers can remove around 90% of air which is still a stretch from reaching the astounding minimum of 99% drawn using a chamber vacuum sealer geared with an oil pump!

3) Decreased Noise Pollution

No one would like to risk their sense of hearing due to prolonged use of their vacuum sealers. Oil pumps create 20-30 dB less noise than any other dry piston pump vacuum sealers. Specifically, the 85-95 dB of noise created by dry piston pumps is compared to the volume of a vacuum cleaner which is only a few dB short of the level considered to cause hearing loss after sustained exposure. Conversely, our JVR Vac100 is as quiet as 65 dB when in operation which is compared to having an average conversation!

To read more about the benefits of an oil pump, feel free to read our article here.

The price of external vacuum sealers may only be a couple hundred at the initial purchase. Yet, limited pump durability eventually requires multiple purchases over time easily making these far more expensive in the long term.

In addition, external vacuum sealers such as Food Savers require the use of embossed bags called vacuum sealer bags. These are more expensive than the chamber vacuum pouches only compatible with chamber vacuum sealers.

“…JVR Industries will always remember him as the one who paved the way for our company and for chamber vacuum packaging in North America.”

John V Radziwon - Former Owner Passes Away

Remembering John V Radziwon

On March 19th, 2024, John V Radziwon, the founder of JVR Industries, passed away at the age of 84. John was beloved by many, accomplished much with his life, and was well known for his humor. Although his origins and life were based in Western NY, John loved to travel and make friends around the world. But we here at JVR Industries will always remember John as the one who paved the way for our company and for vacuum chamber packaging in North America.

JVR and Kodak Sealers

John R. (founder of JVR) and Rob E. (Current President) at a 1998 trade show showcasing the products that helped protect Kodak’s film from light with the help of the Sipromac chamber vacuum sealers.

We would like to take the time to celebrate John’s life. He was a generous & comical individual with many accomplishments.
His presence will forever hold a special place here at JVR.

A few of John’s Major Accomplishments

John began his career by working for Jaccard Corporation. He used this opportunity as a stepping stone to the meat industry as well as the distributor network. From there he expanded his horizons to be the successful businessman who founded JVR Industries. Furthermore, John was one of the first to introduce chamber vacuum packaging to the North American market. John started importing the German line of LacoVac chamber vacuum packaging machines in the mid to late 1970s. These high-quality machines would be some of the first chamber vacs to hit the North American market. Some of these units are still being used today by our loyal customer base! John always searched to make new connections and friends across the industry, further expand his knowledge, and provide opportunities to ensure JVR Industries long-standing success in the vacuum packaging world & beyond.

VST50 - Vacuum Tumbler Overview

Basic Overview of the VST50 – Vacuum Tumbler

“Expedite your marination process by upgrading to a VST50-vacuum tumbler that provides precision and efficiency.”

VST50 - Vacuum Tumbler

 

Marinating large amounts of meat is sometimes challenging. Generally, the procedure goes something like this – You add fresh cut meat into a large bowl along with an immaculate marinade mix of soy sauce, possibly some ginger, and spices like salt and garlic to taste. Following several hours, you retrieve the marinaded meat from the fridge for cooking only to find all the marinade has pooled to the bottom of the bowl. What you thought was marinating meat did not, in fact, marinate. In other cases, you had to wait 24 hours for a full marinade on your beef products. Time is the essence when you are doing mass deep tissue marination of food for resale.

Eliminate this frustrating outcome with a VST50-vacuum tumbler that provides a transforming experience for marination. Increase the output and decrease the time for marination to incomparably improve the procedure for commercial-grade results.

 

Expedite your marination process by upgrading to a vacuum tumbler that provides precision and efficiency that does not result from solely placing a bowl of contents in the fridge to sit. A vacuum tumbler simply does the work of marinating meat for you.  With a drum capacity of 50 lbs., the unit provides ample room to marinate any desired combination such as chicken with a soy sauce-based marinade, or fish with a citrus juice-based marinade in bulk with little effort on your part. Get deep tissue marination results in a fraction of the time!

 

Because of the constant churning of the tumbler, the marinades will evenly contact all meat surfaces even in bulk amounts for the full duration of marination time. Additionally, what changes the game to create a robust explosion of flavor is the vacuum system. The vacuum pulls air out of the drum which causes the meat contents to expand and allowing the marinade to reach every surface of the meat to bring out more flavor where even the most basic ingredients can be a tasty meal. The pull on the meat produced by the vacuum also benefits in transforming even tougher cuts, delivering a tender texture full of flavor.

VST50 - Vacuum Tumbler

 

Removable Baffles: Effortless removal makes cleaning easy and ensures sanitary use.

Moisture Collection Reservoir: Functions to collect liquids in order to protect the vacuum oil pump.

Adjustable Tumbler Time: The unit is shipped with set intervals from 0-4 hours. If you require different time intervals, no worries! The times are adjustable via installed dipswitches to match the precision of your marinating process! If interested, then contact the JVR Industries service department for detailed instructions.

50 lb. Drum Capacity: Provides ample space to marinate meat in bulk!

Analog Gauge: This provides an easy way to check the pressure of the amount of vacuum you require.

Stainless Steel Construction: Ensures sustainability, ease of cleaning, and resists corrosion.

Oil Lubricated Vacuum Pump: Longer life span, quieter operation, and pulls higher vacuum than dry piston pumps.

These vacuum tumblers are constructed carefully to provide ease of operation, therefore providing you with simplicity to acquire the desired results.

Prepare the Unit for Loading

Upon unpackaging, place your unit on a flat, solid surface with space to work around it. You will find an unattached component on top of the unit. This is the moisture collection reservoir and does not come preinstalled. It functions to prevent liquid marinade from getting sucked back into the vacuum pump, and, as a result, protecting the oil pump from damage.

 

How to Install the Moisture Collection Reservoir

To install the reservoir, first, locate the screws on the back of the unit opposite the control panel and confirm the screws have not loosened during shipment. The screws can be secured by lifting the cover and tightening them from the inside of the unit. Secondly, connect the hose found on the unit by simply pushing it onto the quick disconnect fitting found beside the screws. Initially, you will feel a click, but this does not ensure a secure seal until you hear a second click. Lastly, line up the holes found on the back of the reservoir to the screws on the unit, insert the screw, and slide down to attach.

VST25 or VST50 - Removable Baffles Shot

 

As stated, this tumbler has the capacity to hold up to 50 lbs. of meat! The following steps will take you through how to load your drum for marination.

1) Step #1 – Lift the drum off the rollers and place it upright onto a flat, stable surface.

2) Step #2 – Remove the lid. Unhook the three clasps by lifting the levers and displacing the clasps.

3) Step #3 – Confirm the fins inside the drum are tightened to prevent loosening while tumbling.

4) Step #4 – Load chicken, beef, or any other meats along with a marinade into the drum.

5) Step #5 – Reinstall the lid and ensure it is centered by feeling around the perimeter.

6) Step #6 – Lastly, reinstall clasps (meant to temporarily secure the lid until the vacuum is applied).

 

The vacuum system is made easy with only a couple of steps to follow! The system is designed to be applied either with the drum upright or set back onto the unit. We recommend getting into the habit of applying the vacuum with the drum upright in case you happen to forget to secure the clasps.

Before beginning, check to ensure the canister on the moisture collection reservoir is tightened by twisting the canister until secure. Additionally, ensure the oil is filled by simply looking through the sight glass.

Now follow these easy steps!

.

1) Step #1 – Locate the suction cups on the hose hung on the back of the unit as well as the hose from the top of the drum lid.

2) Step #2 – OPEN the valve on the hose entering the drum.

3) Step #3 – Turn ON the vacuum system using the switch on the control panel.

4) Step #4 – Press the suction cups together for a few seconds until they hold independently.

5) Step #5 – Monitor the pressure using the gauge located on the control panel.

6) Step #6 – Turn OFF after the vacuum reaches the desired vacuum.

7) Step #7 – BEFORE disconnecting the hoses, CLOSE the valve on the hose running to the drum to ensure air does not leak out.

8) Step #8 – Disconnect the hoses.

9) Step #9 – Finally, reinstall the drum back onto the unit (make sure the drum reaches the very back to the stops).

You are now ready to begin the tumbler cycle for marinating!

 

In order to prepare the tumbler cycle to marinate meat, locate the control interface at the front of the unit. You will find these three main controls.

 

On/Off Switch

Tumble Time

Speed Control (Potentiometer)

 

Set these controls to the desired settings to perfect your recipe. Then switch the ON/OFF switch to ON, and stand back for the marinating process!

 

JVR Industries also carries the TM series tumblers distributed by Promarks. JVR Industries has been partners with Promarks for about 20 years and can ensure the unit is constructed carefully to offer the utmost quality for our customers.

How To Prevent Freezer Burn - VacNews Article

How To Prevent Freezer Burn

“Chamber vacuum sealing removes 99.8% of air to ensure that no chance for freezer burn is possible!”

How To Prevent Freezer Burn - VacNews Article

Preventing freezer burn is something we all want to achieve in our households.  Most everyone has experienced the unpleasantness of grabbing a package of pepperoni out of your freezer, anticipating a nice homemade pepperoni pizza. To your dismay, the whole bag of meat that has been freezing for longer than you had anticipated has turned a strange brown color and you know from experience it does not taste good! This is a frustrating place to be and we would like to address this first-hand.

Today, we are here to help you with the question of how you can stop this situation from happening to you if you are looking to freeze meat or any other products. Based on experience, we have found that if you invest in the right materials, damage due to freezing your product will become the least of your worries. We will walk you through a discussion of how freezer damage occurs and how JVR Industries provides the soundest way to affirm that you can freeze any of your products without forming freezer burn for an unbeatable range of time!

What is Freezer Burn - VacNews

Freezer damage usually occurs around a couple of months into freezing a product and can be spotted by the appearance of discoloration, pink striations, or ice crystals forming on the body surface of a freezing product. If you happen to not take a close enough look, you will assuredly notice the bland taste once you bite into the gritty or toughened texture of the product that had been freezing.

Freezing a product for too long without proper precautions can cause frozen spoilage. This will take effect prominently on the color, taste, texture, and aroma of the food you freeze.

Now, it is often the myth that freezer-damaged food is unhealthy to eat. This is not necessarily the case and it does not contain bacteria. With this in mind, you might be able to feed freezer-burnt meat to your animals, but to the human species, we can certainly agree that consuming this is not preferred.

What is Freezer Burn - VacNews

Food damage due to freezing occurs as a result of a process called desiccation meaning the removal of moisture. The atmosphere within a freezer is dry due to the moisture freezing. If the freezing product is exposed to this dry atmosphere, the water particles within the product want to escape to compensate for that lack of moisture. The escaping water particles end up freezing on the surface of the product to create ice crystals upon contact with the freezing temperatures and a discolored appearance as the moisture is pulled out and freezes. Generally, the slower the product freezes, the larger the water particles grow. Consequently, the bigger the size of the water particles escaping, the more cell membranes within the product break causing alterations in smell, look, and taste.

Multiple protocols exist to avoid freezer damage. We have seen that some of the most common include ensuring the temperature in the freezer is even colder than freezing temperature to minimize the amount of time it takes for the product to freeze, limiting the number of times the freezer is open which decreases the temperature causing the freezing product to thaw then have to freeze over again, and packaging food to freeze in a plastic zipper bag or storage container.

Although these protocols may be effective for a time, how would you directly address the reason freezer damaged food occurs? The answer is simple! We have found that chamber vacuum sealing is the most effective and efficient way to ensure your product does not come into contact with the dryness in the freezer, and therefore, eliminates the need for the moisture to escape the product. Chamber vacuum sealing removes 99.8% of air to ensure that no chance for freezer burn is possible! As a result, the product will maintain its moisture and not go to waste.

JVR Vac100 - Chamber Vacuum Sealer | best chamber vacuum sealer for home use
JVR Vac100 - Chamber Vacuum Sealer

Chamber vacuum sealing your product before freezing takes out up to 99.8% of the air out of the pouch ensuring the product has the least possible contact with the dry atmosphere in the freezer. While the vacuum sealer pulls close to all the air out, it also creates an airtight seal eliminating the possibility of any entering or leaving the pouch. With minimal contact and no possibility of it leaving or entering, the product is allowed to hold its moisture and maintain optimal quality!

Plastic zipper bags and storage containers may store your product for a shorter range of time. Still, the amount of space that is left within the packaging is outstanding compared to what is accomplished by a chamber vacuum sealer. This substantial difference causes a much greater risk of freezer damage using alternative options for freezing products.

Standard plastic zipper bags are not capable of being used for vacuum sealing in addition to being permeable due to the materials used to manufacture them. The likelihood of air seeping into the bag and, further, causing freezer damage is possible. Vacuum sealing using a pouch guarantees an airtight seal and eliminates that chance allowing you to freeze your product knowing the chance of freezer damage is at the minimum.

JVR Industries stands out from our competitors as we have specialized in the vacuum sealing industry since 1972. That is over 50 years of experience!

Our company prides itself on carrying chamber vacuum machines that produce results to stand out from our competitors. The chamber vacuum machines we carry, such as the Vac100 and Vac110, pull around 99.8% of air from pouches before sealing!

Considering the amount being pulled during vacuum sealing, this allows for minimal contact with the dryness within the freezer. Accordingly, the product maintains its moisture in contrast to alternative packaging options!

How To Prevent Freezer Burn - VacNews Article

We’ve Experienced & Experimented With Products In-House To Confirm!

Many of us own our own vacuum sealers and have seen the difference firsthand! Our years of service in the vacuum packaging industry have also provided lots of data and experience with freezer burn. Lastly, we recently tested our Vac100 in-house by freezing various products! Currently, we have salmon and soup that has been freezing for 2+ years. Both have no sign of freezer damage to date! They look as fresh as the day we sealed them.

What About An External Vacuum Sealer?

Some companies may suggest the alternative of using edge, suction, and external vacuum sealers. Still, these cannot vacuum seal liquids and they remove 19.8% less air than a chamber vac with an oil pump. The chamber vacuum sealers we provide have the option to package any products containing liquids or any amount of moisture that is not provided by an external vacuum sealer. If you freeze products containing liquids, a chamber vacuum sealer is ideal.

360 West Magazine - Vac100

If you are looking to order a chamber vacuum sealer to utilize these methods, we have just the product for you! JVR Industries carries top-notch chamber vacuum sealers, such as the Vac100 or Vac110, that we have continually ensured are more than fit to produce the results you need to efficiently and effectively seal your products for freezing!

To access all cycle times hit “SETTINGS” one time. You should see the LED near VACUUM on the control panel. Now, hit “INCREASE” or “DECREASE” to adjust the VACUUM cycle time.

To access the next cycle time, simply hit “SETTINGS” two more times to bypass the GAS cycle and enter the SEALING cycle. Gas is put on every control panel because of the gas option potential, but all of the units do not have a gas option installed. (We do not sell a gas flush option on the Vac110. Only models above the Vac110 have this option.) Now, hit “INCREASE” or “DECREASE” to adjust the VACUUM cycle time.

Select “SETTINGS” one more time to access the COOLING cycle time.

The chamber inside the Vac110 is slightly uneven so some factors should be considered for effectiveness of the seal.

Step 1: Set the mouth lids evenly and firmly over the mouth of the selected quantity of Mason jars.

Step 2: Screw the band on ONE thread of each jar in order to keep the mouth lid in place. If the band is too tight, then the sealing process will be altered.

Step 3: Place jars upright in the center of the chamber.

Easy! Close lid of the chamber and the process will begin automatically.

Following sealing, a dimple should form on the top of the mouth lid. This shows the process has created an airtight seal. You can further confirm a fully sealed mouth lid by attempting to lift lid or tip the can upside down.

Test Dimple Vac110

If no dimple forms, this suggests you have a failed seal. Feel free to then repeat the process after confirming the mouth lid is on evenly over the mouth of the jar. Please do bear in mind that mouth lids can distort after a vacuum sealing in a Vac110 chamber vacuum sealer. If you suspect distortion, we suggest getting a new lid.

There you have it – yet another use the Vac110 can provide to make life a little simpler and more efficient in just a couple easy steps!

Following sealing, a dimple should form on the top of the mouth lid. This shows the process has created an airtight seal. You can further confirm a fully sealed mouth lid by attempting to lift lid or tip the can upside down.

If no dimple forms, then repeat the process after confirming the mouth lid is on evenly over the mouth of the jar. Please bear in mind that the mouth of the mason jar does need to be free of dust and debris, If the lid has been used before, the lid is most likely distorted from any previous vacuum cycle and this is why we suggest replacing them.
