“…Vac110 is a powerhouse machine, while the Vac310s boast extreme production output.”

Today, we are going to cover a hot topic: “What chamber vacuum machine is better for my packaging needs? The JVR Vac110 or Vac310?”

Today in the Vac110 and Vac310 comparison, we will cover every little specification and subtle difference between the two vacuum packaging units to ensure you are selecting the right unit for your scenario. To determine the best vacuum sealer that fits your needs, review some important differences and similarities between these units below.

Vac110 and Vac310 Comparison

Unlike most vacuum sealers, the JVR Vac110 and Vac310s stand apart from the competition. They may be tabletop units, but they certainly deliver speed, durability, and efficiency. The Vac110 is a powerhouse machine, while the Vac310s boast extreme production output. While both chamber vacuum sealers are capable of vacuum sealing a variety of food items, they deliver different benefits to users.

Vac110

The Vac110 is considered a powerhouse chamber vacuum machine because the vacuum pump has a flow rate of eight cubic meters per hour. A third of horsepower makes this unit quick and powerful. To put these figures into perspective, it takes just under 30 seconds for 99% of the air in the chamber to be evacuated. If efficiency and speed are most important to you, this unit will certainly deliver and make vacuum-sealing bags a breeze. This vacuum sealer is perfect for home use while still promoting high-frequency packaging.

Vac310

The Vac310 (1 Bar) and Vac 310 (2 Bar) vacuum sealers have a vacuum pump flow rate of 20 cubic meters per hour, in addition to 1.25  horsepower. These extremely powerful units can evacuate 99% of the air in the chamber in under 20 seconds. If high product output is essential to you, the Vac310s will most definitely deliver.

The Vac110 weighs 77 pounds, and the Vac310 (1 Bar) and Vac310 (2 Bar) each weigh 145 pounds. All three chamber vacuum sealers cannot be easily moved or transported at such a heavy weight. However, the great news is, we sell a stainless-steel cart that can hold the Vac110 making transportability a breeze. The bottom shelf of the cart can be used to store replacement parts and is a great place for vacuum bag storage. However, the Vac310s would certainly require more than one person to move or transport.

Retort capable refers to the ability of a seal bar assembly to seal up to 7mil mylar bags or retort pouches.

Vac110: Retort capable when using the retort bar assembly. Specifically designed with a concaved v-type seal wire to concentrate more heat toward the seal. 

Please note: JVR Industries does not advise sealing retort and mylar pouches with the standard seal bar assembly of the Vac110. Doing so will deplete the heat strip and seal bar tape at a much more rapid pace.

Vac310 (2 Bar): NOT RETORT CAPABLE. Why not? The Vac310 (2 Bar) has the same power output as the Vac310 (1 Bar) however, the power is being split between two bars instead of one.
