Is it possible to extend the shelf life of red meat? Now yes! Henkelman is the first manufacturer to develop the Red Meat program for this purpose. This program prevents droplets from forming on the product as well as leakage of liquid from the product.
Red meat contains quite a lot of water. The combination of water and protein is called myoglobin, which gives the meat its red color. When meat is placed in a low pressure chamber during the vacuum cycle, moisture is released from the meat. There may also be bubbles of gas escaping from the meat. The Red meat program avoids this.
How it works?
Before sealing the vacuum bag, a small amount of air is injected into it. This stops the formation of bubbles in the meat juice. After that, the vacuum bag is sealed. This function can significantly improve the quality of vacuum packaging.
Bi-active sealing designed for vacuum packaging of food and non-food products
A vacuum packer with bi-active sealing working with aluminum bags or bags of extra thickness (more than 180 microns). These types of vacuum bags are the most difficult to package. As a result, the need for bi-active sealing is becoming an essential requirement.

The most popular Henkelman sealing systems. This simple solution offers significant advantages of vacuum packaging.
Comparison of a round seal string and a double sealing system
Most vacuum packers available on the market are equipped with a double sealing system with two flat strings for double joint. Compared to this system, the cut-off string option offers better hygiene, as the operator can easily remove the excess part of the bag and the packaging looks much more aesthetically.
Henkelman Convex Sealing Machine
Helps to achieve the best packaging results. Flat strings, the most common in vacuum packers, crushing of the product residues between the two sides of the bag, which can losing vacuum. Henkelman convex sealing reduces this risk due to higher pressure in the sealing joint
The Henkelman inclined insert plate offers convenience if you want to package liquids or powders, such as soups, sauces and flour. Because the vacuum bag can be positioned in the chamber at a certain angle, the product stays precisely at its place.
Available in different sizes and suitable for all models.
Polyethylene inserts in the vacuum chamber are standard on each machines and serve to optimize the duration of the work cycle and adjust the position of the package inside the chamber. For two-chamber models, possible to produce special inserts for the cover to save time and reduce gas consumption by reducing the volume of the vacuum chamber.
