Mighty Mutt MPV-18 Vacuum Sealer Review

Wednesday, July 10th, 2013

Mighty Mutt MPV-18 Impulse Vacuum SealerIf your business is in need of an industrial quality impulse vacuum sealer, the Mighty Mutt MPV-18 (found here) is certainly an option to consider. It has been around for years, is made in the USA, is a well-known brand and is commonly used for packaging anything from medical supplies to food. With all the vacuum sealers out there, is this particular one the right choice for you?

The Mighty Mutt MPV-18 falls under the category of external vacuum sealer because it the bags are always outside the machine during the sealing process, unlike a chamber sealer. The advantage to this is that there are no height restrictions. With a wide 17.5” sealing width, the Mighty Mutt can be used to vacuum seal and package a wide variety of products.

This vacuum sealer also falls under the category of impulse sealer. Impulse sealing is a technology that doesn’t require any warm-up time prior to use. The sealing wire heats up and quickly cools down with every use, also making it very safe to use. The MPV-18 seals bags shut using a ¼” (6mm) flat band seal, which is more than enough sealing width for most packaging applications. A footswitch makes hands-free operation extremely easy.

The Might Mutt uses what’s known as a retractable nozzle system (made of stainless steel). When the top of the bag is inserted into the sealer, the nozzle slips inside the bag. This nozzle is what actually removes the air from the package. Once the designated amount of air has been removed, the nozzle will actually remove itself, allowing the bag to be sealed shut. The stainless steel nozzle is extremely easy to clean and far more durable than the plastic nozzles found on many competitors’ machines.

One thing that really sets the Mighty Mutt apart from the competition is the use of the Venturi Vacuum. This type of vacuum is a Seco Gramatech exclusive. Unlike other pumps, it uses no moving or electrical parts. This makes the machine extremely quiet, much more so than the competition. This also helps to improve the compressor life and improves the cycle rate of the machine. If you have ever seen this machine in use, you will be surprised to see just how fast the air is removed from the bag.

This sealer is very easy to set up. It includes dials that allow you to adjust things such as the dwell, vacuum, seal and gas settings. It can be fitted with an optional internal compressor, single stage gas flush, bi-active seal system and it can be fitted for use with an optional 220V electrical system.

Weighing it at about 60 pounds, this vacuum sealer can be used on most workbenches, counters, tables or desks. It is designed to be fast, simple to operate and can be used just about anywhere. This machine is ideal for packaging medical supplies, parts, tools and even food.

Be aware that this vacuum sealer does require an external air compressor to operate.
