FAQ: "Which vacuum sealer seals liquid"? All chamber style vacuum sealers, where the bag is placed inside a chamber will seal a bag filled with liquid. The liquid will stay in the bag. The reason for this is the atmospheric pressure is being removed from the chamber so there is no pressure on the bag.
With the suction style vacuum sealers like the Vacupack Elite, atmospheric pressure is pressing on the outside of the bag pushing the liquid with the air removal. To get a good seal the unit must have an excellent heat bar. The heat bar must become hot enough to seal the bag while liquid is running over it, cooling it off. The Vacupack Elite has the best of the best, a crimping heat bar. The heat bar actually stops most of the water in place while sealing. This type heat bar is far superior to the extra wide heat bands or tiny skinny strips of most units. Care must be taken not to over flood the unit. Although protected with a very tall port and water trap there is no need to carelessly flood the unit. Bags of soup and excessive full bags of water should be prefrozen.
