The CAP station can either gas flush or vacuum seal the bag or do both. The assembly includes a 10 CFM vacuum pump with a filtering device to capture any floating product, and a single or dual snorkel which plunges into the bag and activates the process. Once the snorkel retracts, the bag is stretched to avoid any loss of atmosphere and is quickly sealed. Oxygen residuals are consistently maintained at less than 2%. Bag sizes can range up to 12 in. wide x 18 in. long. Bag features include; zippers, carry handles and gussets.
