Durable Rotary Pump

This rotary vane style pump is designed with the finest in materials to allow for a long service life in even the busiest of commercial kitchens. The JetAire pump system keeps your best steaks marinated, your vegetables prepared for sous vide cooking, or your key ingredients preserved to an exceptional degree for longer periods of time, and can stand up to heavy-duty use in your kitchen.

Gas Flush

This model comes with a gas flush system that preserves the color and texture of certain foods and minimizes the potential for crushing by creating a protective cushion of inert gas. It's a great way to extend the life of your goods but where it really shines is on foods that can break or lose their shape under compression. Soft fruits and brittle products like dried foods, chips, and pasta can be crushed under a full vacuum cycle - the gas flush lets you stop that process short so that your items are sealed but still enjoy a longer product life due to the gas mixture.

Customizable Settings

With 10 custom programs you can select the perfect soft air setting capable of adjusting vacuuming, sealing, cooling, and gas insertion times, depending on what food you're sealing.

Removable Seal Bar

The 16" heat seal bar is protected with a silicone pad and is fully removable for easy cleaning and food safety.

Included Maintenance Kit

This model also comes with everything that you'll need from a maintenance perspective to maintain optimal performance of your machine.

Customer Q&A Ask a Question

How do high altitudes affect the vacuum sealing process?
A vacuum sealer’s performance varies with respect to location. At higher altitudes, where air pressure is less dense, vacuum sealers are unable to remove as much air from the sealing process. High-pressure conditions are an important factor in the proper functioning of the sealer’s compressor, and without enough pressure, you may notice a weaker vacuum.
How do I determine if a vacuum machine bag will work on my machine?

If you have a chamber-type machine: Buy a chamber-type bag (mesh-less design). The open end of the vacuum bag must be the same size or shorter than the seal bar on your machine, and the bag must also fit inside your machine’s chamber.

If you have an external-type machine: You must buy an external-type, or "out of chamber" bag (mesh design). The open end of the vacuum bag must be the same size or shorter than the seal bar on your machine.

All of our vacuum machine bags list how large the open end is, and whether you can use them with external or chamber machines, in the content.

Do I need anything additional to install the gas flush system on this vacuum packaging machine?
Unless the description states otherwise, most vacuum packaging machines with a gas flush system will require a gas cylinder and a regulator / hose to connect it to the machine. These are purchased separately from the machine and should be installed by a qualified technician to ensure safety. Check your product's literature for any specific setup requirements and settings.

Hamilton Beach PrimaVac Vacuum Sealers

Learn all about the PrimaVac line of in-chamber vacuum packaging machines from Hamilton Beach Commercial!

The PrimaVac line of in-chamber vacuum packaging machines from Hamilton Beach Commercial has been engineered to help you capture freshness, preserve quality, maximize speed to table during peak hours, and infuse maximum flavor into your menu. Traditional applications for vacuum packaging include extending shelf life, reducing storage space, maintaining food safety and portion control, and sous vide cooking. But the true versatility of vacuum packaging is only limited by your imagination. Chefs around the world are using vacuum packaging for infusing, marinating, pickling, and even curing in just about every type cuisine you can imagine. From appetizers to entrees, and desserts to cocktails. Hydroshock herbs and fresh greens to maintain their color. Infuse fruits and vegetables with flavor before cooking. Or pickle them in hours instead of days. Create custom house cocktails by infusing liquors and simple syrups or changing the textures of fruit to create distinctive garnishes. As with all Hamilton Beach Commercial products, PrimaVacs are designed to stand the test of time with repeated use. The rotary vein design of our jet air vacuum sealing pumps combine with the smooth contoured stainless steel chambers to produce a perfect vacuum quickly while the double-wired seal bars finish the job. The seal bars easily remove for quick and easy cleaning. For added peace of mind, all PrimaVacs are approved to the latest UL and CE standards and are NSF Certified. Each PrimaVac comes with standard features that others consider premium options. Including 10 customizable programs to fit most processing tasks, as well as adjustable soft air and variable cooling times, enabling minute adjustments to achieve optimal results. To get you started, a filler plate, seal bar maintenance kit, starter oil, and all the tools you need are included with your unit. All PrimaVacs come standard with a 2-year warranty and you can always rely on our world-wide network of service centers. There are only two factors to consider when deciding which PrimaVac is right for you. One is gas flush and the other is volume, or how much you need to process and how quickly. The gas flush feature is specifically designed for packaging delicate ingredients and is available only with the PrimaVac 406. By replacing oxygen with inert gas, gas flush helps preserve the color and texture of certain foods and minimizes the potential of crushing fragile contents by creating a pillow effect. In addition, the 406 features a 406mm, 16" seal bar, a jet air pump capacity of 24 cubic meters per hour in the 120 volt version, 20 cubic meters per hour for the 230 volt model, and the largest PrimaVac chamber available. The PrimaVac 406 is available for large volumes and is capable of packing two pouches at the same time. If gas flush is not a priority and a more modest volume will work, then the PrimaVac 305 will cover an array of applications. It features a 305mm, 12" seal bar and incorporates a jet air pump with a 12 cubic meter per hour capacity in the 120 volt capacity and a 10 cubic meter per hour capacity for the 230 volt model. It can easily handle 1 gallon pouches or larger. If space is a limitation and your primary purpose is menu development or small portions, the most compact option is the PrimaVac 254. It features a 254mm, 10" seal bar and 8 cubic meter per hour jet air pump in both the 120 volt and 230 volt versions, and the most compact PrimaVac chamber. PrimaVac pouches are designed for a variety of applications and work with all other chamber sealer brands. NSF Certified, PrimaVac pouches come in an array of sizes in 3 mil and 4 mil thicknesses to handle the most difficult ingredients. Pouch quality and durability are critical so we designed each with multiple layers of FDA Approved materials. From a strong, oxygen-blocking nylon layer outside, to a flexible, yet puncture-resistant polyethylene layer inside, PrimaVac pouches are safe, strong, and ideal for just about any vacuum sealing applications. Take vacuum packaging to the next level with PrimaVac from Hamilton Beach Commercial. Built for durability and consistency, think beyond basic applications and use PrimaVac to bring your culinary vision to life. Now that's more good thinking from Hamilton Beach Commercial.
