Packaging Liquids

When packaging moisture-containing products, such as soups and sauces, it is important to closely monitor the vacuuming process. The moment bubbles are formed or the product starts to bubble, you should immediately proceed to the next step in the cycle. See Proceeding to the Next Step in the Cycle on page 19.
By letting products cool down sufficiently prior to starting the vacuuming process, a higher vacuum can be achieved.

When packaging moisture-containing products, it is important to run the pump cleaning program at least once a week. When moisture-containing products are vacuumed on a daily basis, it is recommended to run the pump cleaning program at the end of the day.
