Best Cleanroom Vacuum Sealers w/ Gas Purge for Medical Packaging

AmeriVacS CAVN Cleanroom Medical Vacuum SealerWhen it comes to packaging products such as medical tubing, tape and other medical supplies, it is helpful to use a vacuum sealer that is designed for use in a clean room. For many of these packaging applications, a gas purge system is required to keep things as sterile as possible. At ABC Office we recently added several new vacuum sealers (found here) that are cleanroom safe, many of which include a gas purge. I would like to explain how these work and point you to a few models.

When medical supplies, devices and accessories are being packaged, cleanliness is an absolute must. Tubing, tape and supplies have to be sterile for the safety of the patient. For this reason, there are many vacuum sealers designed to be used in a particle-free clean room. These sealers are clean, sterile, don’t produce particles, are electrostatic safe and comply with the strictest cleanroom requirements. They are also designed to work in a temperature and humidity controlled environment.

I mentioned earlier that many people like to package medical devices, supplies and accessories with a gas purge system. So how does this work? A gas purge flushes the bag being sealed with an inert gas and removes life-giving oxygen, which can sustain the life of a lot of nasty bacteria and other things you don’t want on your medical instruments. The inert gas is almost always nitrogen.

Most cleanroom vacuum sealers include a foot pedal. The seal created is usually around ¼” thick, which is more than enough to maintain a solid seal. Most of these vacuum sealers allow you to adjust the seal time, volume removed / added and much more.

Before I list some of our new clearoom vacuum sealers, which include a gas purge, I would like to point out our entire selection of external bag sealers here.

I am going to sort these vacuum sealers by price:

  • AccVacs E 1000G (found here) – This sealer includes a gas purge system and a built-in compressor. It can handle bags up to 10″ wide. It is clean room compatible and includes an electronic footswitch. This is one of the most affordable options we offer.
  • AccVacs E 1500G (found here) – This machine is very similar to the above-mentioned machine, but has a 15″ wide sealing width. This is more than enough sealing length for most medical bag packaging needs. It produces a ¼” seal and is clean room compatible.
  • AccVacs E 2000G (found here) This clean room safe vacuum sealer has a 20″ sealing length and is available in a white unit and a stainless steel unit. As is the case with the above two mentioned models, this sealer has a retractable nozzle and digital smart controls.
  • Mighty Mutt MPV-18 (fond hear) – This clean room ready vacuum sealer has been around for years and is a time-tested classic. It has a 17.5″ sealing length and produces a 0.25″ seal. This sealer is tough.
  • AccVacs E 2500G (found here) – If the above mentioned vacuum sealers are just too small for your packaging needs, consider this model. It has an extremely wide 25″ sealing length while still providing a gas purge ability, ¼” seal and clean room compatibility. This sealer works great on a table.
  • AccVacs E 3000G (found here) – This massive 30″ vacuum sealer is excellent for packaging medical supplies, tools, devices and accessories in bulk. It can be used with huge bags and is still clean room compliant. It is fast, effective and still produces a nice ¼” seal along the entire width of the bag.
  • AmeriVacS AVN Series Sealers w/ Gas Purge (found here) – These AVN sealers are designed to be plugged into an existing compressor or compressed air outlet. These sealers are nice because they are very quiet and come in sealing widths ranging from 20″ all the way up to 50″!
  • AccVacs E 3500G (found here) – This sealer is available in a standard gas purge version and in a touch screen version with gas purge. This is the largest AccVacs brand sealer available that is clean room safe. This sealer is 35″ wide. If you need something bigger, you will need to go with the AmeriVacS AVN.
  • AmeriVacS CAVN Series Sealers w/ Gas Purge (found here) – These sealers are available in either a 20″ or a 30″ design and include built-in compressors and gas purge systems. These sealers are designed for commercial / industrial use on a daily basis and are some of the heaviest-duty clean room compliant vacuum sealers we offer.
