Are you a producer of precision instruments, for example, bearings?
If you work in these business fields, there’s a great chance that you are using vacuum packaging machines for the packaging of your products.
The double chamber vacuum packaging machine, however, is one type of these vacuum packaging machine that is rather popular in all over the world.

Understand the concept of vacuum packaging

Vacuum packaging is a technology to remove air from containers, for the purpose of prolonging the product’s shelf life, saving space for storage and shipping. KANGBEITE PACKAGING has initiated an article for an overview of vacuum packaging, please read the article for more information of vacuum packaging.

What is double chamber vacuum packaging machine?

Double chamber vacuum packaging machine is a type of vacuum packaging machine that has 2 vacuum chambers and 1 chamber lid for faster packaging speed. The chamber lid can be moved manually or automatically, so the two vacuum chambers work in turn to improve packaging efficiency by 50% more than a single chamber vacuum packing machine.

What are the advantages of double chamber vacuum packaging machine?

As an equipment for vacuum packing, double chamber vacuum packaging machine has many advantages, which make it super popular in the packaging field.

  • Space-saving. A smaller double chamber vacuum packaging machine DZ400 DZ500 DZ600 needs only around 1m³ space. Larger machines, DZ800, DZ900, DZ1000 need 2m³ – 3 m³.
  • Fast speed. KANGBEITE double chamber vacuum packaging machines are equipped with BUSCH or China brand vacuum pump 100-200m³/h, which guarantees fast vacuum and seal speed, 3-5 cycles/minute
  • High vacuum quality. Good vacuum pump equals good vacuum quality. For food & non-food products that require high vacuum degree, you should choose vacuum packing machines with better vacuum pumps.
  • Wide application range. Most products that require vacuum packaging can be packed by this machine. Check here for a list of products that can be vacuum-packed.
  • The machine can vacuum pack packages of many sizes. Though the total length of the package is limited by the sealing bar length, the vacuum packing machine can vacuum and seal plastic bags of many sizes. For example, a standard DZ600/2S, the sealing bar length is 600mm, the distance between the sealing bar is 490mm so you can pack any sizes of packages within the scale.double chamber vacuum packing machine dz600/2s
  • Easy to install. In fact, all you need to do is connect the electricity correctly. Compressed air is required for double chamber vacuum packaging machines with automatic swing chamber lid.
  • Easy to operate.  Simply set up the vacuum time, sealing time to a proper value in the control panel. Check this video for the operation of the machine.
  • Easy to maintain. Clean the machine every day after work. The Surface is made of SUS304 stainless steel, so it’s very easy to clean. Also check the oil of the vacuum pump often.

What are the limitations of the double chamber vacuum packaging machine?

  1. Packaging size limitation. The vacuum and sealing process is completed in the vacuum chamber, the size of which is fixed when produced. So the package size is restricted by the chamber.
  2. Not enough automation grade. For every double chamber vacuum packing machine, you need 1-2 operators to put the bags into vacuum chamber, and take the completed packages out of the vacuum chamber. We recommend the belt type continuous vacuum packaging machine as an alternative if you prefer a more convenient operation.
  3. Packaging speed limitation. The machine is not fast enough for the massive production capacity of vacuum packaging. Compared to the thermoforming vacuum packaging machine, you only need 1-2 operators to complete 20-50 thousand packs per 8 hours. But with the double chamber vacuum packaging machine, you’ll need more than 1 set of machines and more operators.

Specifications of double chamber vacuum packaging machine

  1. The machine is made of SUS304 stainless steel for the longest service life
  2. You are always allowed to customize a double chamber vacuum packaging machine that fit your needs
  3. What’s the meaning of the machine code, DZ500/2S, DZ600/2S, DZ600/4S, DZ800/2S?
    Prefix DZ is a series code of double chamber vacuum packaging machines, this code might be different in different factories.
    The number 500/600/800
    etc means the length of sealing bar is 500/600/800 mm, for example, you can have a customized machine with sealing bars length 650mm, then you can name it DZ650;
    The code 2S/4S means the sealing bar quantity in ONE chamber. For example, DZ600/2S, means there are 2 sealing bars in ONE chamber, total 2*2=4 sealing bars in the machine, the length of each sealing bar is 600mm; DZ600/4S, means there are 4 sealing bars in ONE chamber, total 2*4=8 sealing bars in the machine, the length of each sealing bar is 600mm

  6. Vacuum pump specifications:There are options of BUSCH vacuum pumps and China brand vacuum pumps, the prices of the machines are different accordingly. You can always contact us for a quotation including all the options.
  7. Power supply specifications: You might be worrying about the power supply specification of your factory not be compatible with the machine’s requirement. It’s not necessary! Just tell me the power supply specifications (Voltage, Frequency, 3 Phase) and we’ll make the machine compatible.

How to determine the size of the machine to purchase?

  1. You need to know well about your package sizes, the length, width, and depth or thickness.
  2. Beware of your requirement for output capacity.
  3. Know the specifications of your products: it’s a solid product or liquid type of product?Do you need the final package shape like rice brick?
  4. Example: for normal solid products, size 20*25cm, the vacuum bag opening (the side to seal) length is 20cm. You can put 6 bags in a chamber of DZ600/2S double chamber vacuum packaging machine, and 8 bags in a chamber of DZ800/2S machine.

  7. Example: Big packages like whole chicken, whole durian fruit, you need double chamber vacuum packaging machine with a deep cavity.Whole frozen durian vacuum packing machine

Is this machine able to print date information?

Yes. There are a  bunch of small numbers molds, from 0 (zero) to 9. If you need to print date information in the bag, just use the small number molds as different combinations to form the date you need, put them in the sealing silicone stripe. The date printing is completed during the heating and sealing period.

Why should you buy the double chamber vacuum packaging machines from KANGBEITE PACKAGING?

Question: There are thousands of factories producing double chamber vacuum packaging machines in the world, what makes KANGBEITE PACKAGING outstanding?

Answer: Well, we understand when you search in the market, you’ll find that for a same size double chamber vacuum packaging machine, there are so many price differences, some over $10000, and some only a few hundred US dollars, while all of them have the same look.

  1. Multivac, Vacmaster machines are very expensive, because the labor cost is high in their factories, and fees for distribution is very high. If you want alternative double chamber vacuum packaging machines of Multivac quality but lower price, give KANGBEITE a try.
  2. Our machines are made of real SUS304 stainless steel, thickness 4 mm, so they are robust and don’t rust as those cheap machines. Cheap machines may claim using SUS304, but in fact, they are using SUS202. A machine rust easily not only shortens its service life but also cause contamination to the foods.
  3. Or maybe they are using thinner SUS304 sheets, 2mm or 3mm, while ours are 4mm thickness. The thicker steel sheet makes the machine more robust, more stable, and has better vacuum sealing quality.
  4. Each sealing bar’s temperature is controlled independently. This feature decreases the risk of short-circuit, gives the sealing bars longer service life to up to 6 months.
  5. Waterproof design to protect the machine in humid environment.
  6. Top grade vacuum pumps. Our machines use Busch or China made top quality vacuum pumps. Another important factor is the vacuum pump capacity, we use industrial-grade large vacuum pump for best vacuum quality and fasted packaging speed.

Well, if I purchase this double chamber vacuum packaging machine, how should I use it?

  1. Install: Be sure to install the vacuum packing on flat ground. Put the machine in somewhere safe from fire/ dust, and have enough space for ventilation.
  2. Connection: Connect with electricity supply with compatible specifications.
  3. Check the user manual. Please download the user manual here —double chamber vacuum packing machine user manual
