Re: [Killietalk] Sealing Kordon bags
After a bit of fiddling, I have come to the conclusion that it is easier
to seal with a timer-driven heat sealer. IDK if the Harbor Freight one
has that or not. [We folks in the boonies don't have the urban
advantages that you Rocky Mountain denizens seem to have. No WalMart, no
Costco, no Harbor Freight. :-)]
We are trying to seal a bag with no air, so the liquid must cool the
melted plastic if there isn't a second or two of cool down before
pressure is released. It is also nice to have the sealed region 1/8" or
more wide for safety.
My problems in getting reliable seals from the old-style "Seal-A-Meal"
were the combination of no timer and a very narrow melted region. I
probably could have made it work, but, when packing fish, I'm usually
rushed, and I'd bet I would have had some leakers. The AIE unit is about
as close to "idiot proof" as it gets for sealing wet stuff.
BTW, I think my sealer was about the same price, including shipping.
