Can You Vacuum Seal Liquids In A Bag?

Chamber Vacuum Food SealerA customer recently asked me if it was possible to vacuum seal liquids in a bag for storage, mailing and retail purposes. The customer informed me that they thought it would probably make a huge mess. I let the customer know that it was not only possible, but a lot of people do it. I’ll explain.

To begin with, chamber vacuum sealers are frequently used to package liquids. Not only does it not make a mess, but it is also extremely easy to do. The end results look great and are completely airtight.

Our main chamber vacuum sealer manufacturer, Minipack, manufactures a special stainless steel angled base designed to keep a bag, containing liquids or powders, upright and supported during the sealing process. If you are ordering a machine, be sure to let us know that you are using it for liquids. This adjustable angled base can be later purchased if you already own a Minipack chamber sealer.

Trying to vacuum seal liquids using an external sealer, or a flat base chamber sealer, can produce some pretty messy results. If you already have a chamber sealer, and don’t have an angled base, you may still be able to vacuum seal liquids by using plastic blocks to support the bag during the sealing process.

Not all liquids, however, can be vacuum sealed. We had a customer a few months back ask us if we could vacuum seal wine. We had them send in some samples and we tried packaging the wine in some special Mylar vacuum seal bags. After a few days the carbonation caused the bags to expand to an unstable state. You will not be able to safely vacuum seal any carbonated liquids.

So why do people vacuum seal liquids? For one, it is fairly cheap compared to other containers. Secondly, because air is removed, the shelf life is significantly extended. Vacuum sealing liquids is also great for storage purposes.

You can find our entire selection of chamber vacuum food sealers here. Feel free to call us at 1-800-658-8788 to speak with one of our vacuum sealer specialists. They will be able to answer any questions you may have about vacuum packing liquids.
