Finally got a sealer
    #3731188 - 02/04/05 05:38 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

Got a nice 8" impulse sealer off ebay brand new 30 bux.

I was wondering what number to set the dial on for sealing autoclave bags?

You mean like for the temp?
I'm sure it would vary from modl to model right?

It all really depends on the quality of your element and teflon screen. For the bags that mycosupply sells, usually a setting of 4 - 5 works nicely. I have heard that you should set the dial to the same thickness (mil) as the bag you are using.

I always used a vacuum sealer that had a sealing over ride, I believe 1 click per
mil on bag thickness is what those things are suited for, start on 2 and adjust up
or down, it shouldnt take more than 5 seconds to seal

Yeah, you should hold it down for about 4 - 5 seconds AFTER the light goes off to allow the seal to cool down.

Ok so when I seal I do not want to seal so much that the excess gets chopped off? The setting goes from 1 to 8.

If you do not know the thickness of your bags (check supplier's website or call), and/or do not have the manual for your sealer indicating correct settings, here is an idea:

Look at however your supplier did the BOTTOM of the bags...see the texture/look of it? Your heating element might not be as wide, or may be wider. Either way, try and match up the consistency of the seal - odds are how wide the seal actually turns out is going to be different due to different sealer models.
Peace

-edit: dur, you have to have a practice bag. start at the bottom and work your way up, messing with your settings (1-8 usually)

I know what strikes me as odd about this. It is totally unnatural. The whole idea is just totally backwards.

So are historians going to look back at 'The Great Cake Eaters'? Damn. That was a backwards step in the evolutionary process. We left Shroomheads in the dust. Welcome to the new age of Vermheads.
