SEALER SALES VIDEO SERIES: Band Sealer Maintenance – Changing Sealing and Drive Belts

Daily maintenance or replacement of parts for your band sealer will keep your machine in its optimal condition.   Our first video in our Band Sealer Maintenance Video series will discuss how to change the sealing and drive Belts.

Both sealing and drive belts are consumable items and we recommend changing the belts from time to time. Sealing belts should be changed when the band sealer begins to display “spotty” sealing and/or the user notices that there are “burnt” or worn out areas. Drive belts should be replaced when the belts break or become badly cracked.

Vacuum Sealers Explained

Vacuum Sealers remove oxygen from a package prior to sealing the bag.  By removing oxygen from the package, vacuum sealing can extend the life of a food package or prevent rust of industrial items.  Some vacuum sealers also provide gas purge/gas flush which can flush your pouch with nitrogen to ensure the complete removal of any oxygen in your pouch.   Barrier type of bags must be used to ensure a proper vacuum…some sealers such as the external vacuum sealer require special channel or embossed bags in order to vacuum and seal.  There are three major categories of vacuum sealers:  external vacuum sealer, nozzle vacuum sealer, and the chamber vacuum sealer.  We carry vacuum sealers in all three categories.  Click here for our vacuum sealer product line.

External Vacuum Sealers
In an external vacuum sealer, your product remains outside of the vacuum sealer and a vacuum pump extracts air from a small vacuum cavity.  See our WVT-455T video for an example of how this sealer works.

Bag Type:  Only embossed/channeled bags can be used

Process:  Air is extracted through the ridges on the pouch after the machine’s lid is closed over the bags’ end

Pros

  • Inexpensive

Cons

  • Embossed pouches more expensive than standard vacuum pouches
  • Not practical for higher volume user
  • Slower than commercial vacuum sealers

Nozzle or Snorkel Vacuum Sealers
In an external vacuum sealer, your product remains outside of the vacuum sealer; a nozzle draws air out of the bag and retracts so the bag can be sealed. See our Value Vac video for an example of how this sealer works.

Bag Type:  Standard
Process:  Air is extracted by means of a retractable nozzle which is placed in between the vacuum pouch.  Bag conforms around product as air is extracted
Pros
Fast and light vacuum
Best for fresh vegetables and other “crushable items”
Gas flush option allowing perishable items to be sealed
Cons
External compressor may be required (our SINBO household vacuum sealer does not require an external compressor)
Chamber Vacuum Sealers
In a chamber vacuum sealer, the product is placed completely in a machine before sealing.  See our picture of the TC-280F.
Bag Type:  Standard
Process:  Product is placed in the chamber and the lid is closed.  A vacuum pump extracts air from the chamber; when the air has been extracted, the sealer will then seal the bag.  Air allowed back into the chamber and the vacuum sealed product can be removed
Pros
Highest possible vacuum pressure
Identical vacuum extracted each time
Best for liquids and/or grains
Gas flush option allowing perishable items to be sealed
Cons
Usually larger machine so occupies more space

Determining the Right Band Sealer

When should you buy a band sealer?  If you are finding that a hand or foot sealer cannot meet your production needs, a band sealer may be the right option for you.  Band Sealers will seal and convey your bags via constant heat. Take a look at our video of how a band sealer works.

However, before deciding on a band sealer, ask yourself the following questions:

Q:  Do you already have your bag?
A:  Make sure you have your bag before looking at sealers.  The bag material will determine what sealer will work.

Q:  Should you purchase a band sealer?
A:  Our band sealers can seal materials 3mil-10mil meaning band sealers will seal just about any thermoplastic material including PE, PPE, stand up pouches, gusseted bags (used for coffee and tea), and moisture barrier bags.  Because bags are placed on a conveyor system, the width of the bag does not matter. If you are looking for increased efficiency in your packaging process, then we recommend looking into a band sealer.

Q:  What is the difference between a horizontal and vertical model?
A:  Vertical band sealers typically seal small solid products (ex:  powders, grains, coffee) and liquids.  In addition, if your customer will be packaging his/her product using a stand up pouch, a vertical band sealer will work best.  Horizontal models work best when you can lay flat your pouch.

Q:  Do you want any printing on your bags?  Dry-coding vs. embossing?
A:  Our band sealers have the ability to emboss or dry ink code bags. Embossing continually embosses characters directly on the bag.  Embossing shows up best on foil bags. Dry ink coding prints using a roller with heat activated ink transfers.

Q:  Is there a preference of production running right to left or left to right?
A:  Our band sealers can seal in a right to left direction or left to right direction.  Choose the right sealer based on your preferences.

How to Use the SINBO (DZ-280/A) Vacuum Sealer

The SINBO Vacuum Sealer is the ONLY household vacuum sealer using standard vacuum bags (not the FoodSaver type of bags).   Follow our easy steps below to achieve the best vacuumed product.  We also have a video demonstration you can watch.

Step 1.  Turn the Power Switch Off.  Open the top cover by lifting the lid.  If the lid is locked, push down on both left and right corner spots marked “lock” (part #1) to release the cover.
Step 2.  Test the Seal Process.  Practice a few seals before beginning the vacuum process to determine the time setting needed.  We suggest starting at either 3 or 4.  Note that after sealing a few packages, you may have to drop your setting down by 1 or 2 settings as it will take less time to seal additional bags.
Step 3.  Start the Vacuum Process.
(a) Extend the snorkel (nozzle) (part #4) by pulling the snorkel slide (part #2) forward until it locks into place.
(b) Close and lock the cover by pushing down on the right and left side locks (part #1).  You should hear a “click” when the lid is locked.
(c) Turn on the power switch and the vacuuming process will begin.
Step 4.  Start the Sealing Process – “Double Press Method”
(a) After you are satisfied with the vacuumed bag, momentarily push down on the seal bar (part #4) and release.
(b) Quickly push down again on the seal bar with even pressure until the seal light flashes and you hear a beep indicating the seal is complete
Note:  We suggest the “double press method” for attaining the best seal as this prevents trapping the snorkel in the sealing area.  We want to ensure the snorkel fully retracts.
(c) Push down on both the locks until the cover releases and remove your bag.
Step 5.  Repeat for Additional Bags.  To seal your next bag, turn the power switch off and start at Step 3.

TIPS FOR BEST VACUUM

  • Make sure the product in the bag is placed evenly throughout the bag – best placement is in the center of the bag (this will help ensure your product is not blocking the snorkel.
  • While vacuuming the bag, you may need to rub the layers of the bag between your fingers if the bag is blocking the snorkel
  • Note:  You will notice a change in vacuuming noise when the snorkel is blocked

QUICK POINTS TO REMEMBER

  • When the SINBO vacuum sealer gets too hot from over usage, you will hear a warning sound and the seal will become irregular.  Turn the sealer off and allow the sealer to cool.  The warning sound is to protect the machine from overheating.
  • Do not try and extend the snorkel when the cover is down
  • Keep the bag from blocking the snorkel
  • Snorkel must fully retract before sealing the bag
  • Turn off the machine before starting the next bag
