(re)-sealing spawn bags
    #4196908 - 05/19/05 08:25 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

how do you guys seal your spawnbags? do you use a sealer? i am interested in hearing of other ways besides that.. ohmatic's spawnbag pictorial showed using autoclavable tape.. that seems like a good idea but i dont really know where to get that or what it is.. is anyone else doing things similiar?
thanks

A good impulse sealer is the optimal sealing tool. They an have adjustable heating element, from 0 to 10.... to adjust for differing bag thickness. The heat seal element on a good impulse sealer is anywhere from 1/16th to 3/16th of an inch wide. Which makes for a solid seal that will not fail.

Food saver type sealers make a seal the width of a fine thread & often fail. Trying to use an iron - doesnt work well.

I have used autoclave tape too, it is like masking tape but produces black stripes on it when the product is sterilised, mine turned black after simple steaming. 3M make it though it may be hard to get in a normal shop.
Heavy duty tapes may work too.
