Foot Sealers

Foot sealers give you a hands-free way to seal bags for commercial food packaging. A foot pedal control allows the operator to use both hands to handle the bag while sealing it. They’re a versatile, convenient option for small to medium-sized businesses.

You can be confident buying a foot sealer machine from us because we back it up with a range of parts including everything from replacement heating elements and temperature controllers to sealing elements and cutting wires.

What are foot sealers used for?

Foot sealer machines are often used for fresh produce. With both hands free, operators can handle and position the produce in the bag while achieving an airtight seal. They’re also good for meat, dairy products, and frozen foods such as fruit, vegetables, seafood and pre-cooked meals.


What is a foot sealer?

A foot sealer is a type of heat sealer that is operated by foot pedal control. It is designed to seal bags or pouches by applying heat to create a secure seal along the opening. The foot seal machine typically consists of a heating element and a lower sealing bar that holds the bag in place during the sealing process. By using foot pressure on the pedal, the user activates the heating element, which generates heat to seal the bag.

What do you use a foot sealer machine for?

A foot sealer machine is used for sealing bags or pouches by applying heat to create a secure seal. It is used to ensure an airtight and tamper-evident seal on various types of packaging materials such as plastic bags, foil pouches, or laminated films.


How do foot seal machines work?

Foot sealers use one of two sealing mechanisms: impulse or constant heat. Impulse sealers generate heat through an electrical impulse, while constant heat sealers maintain a continuous heat supply. 


Do you sell a range of foot sealer machine sizes?

Yes, we offer a range of impulse and constant heat foot sealers in various sizes.

If you’re sealing a thicker material or bags with gussets, our machines come with serrated or meshed jaws to provide a stronger seal. We also have double impulse sealers that feature a top and bottom seal element to weld the bag evenly.


All of our models create consistent, secure, and airtight seals to maintain product freshness and prevent leakage.


Is temperature control important on a foot-operated heat sealer?

Temperature control is important for achieving the right seal quality. Our foot sealers offer adjustable temperature settings to accommodate different packaging materials, precise temperature control, and quick heat-up times.


What are foot sealers constructed from?

Our foot sealers are all high quality. You’ll find stainless steel or heavy-duty metal components which offer resistance to wear and tear. And our models have comfortable foot pedals that allow for easy operation without excessive strain or fatigue.


What sort of safety features should I look for in a foot-operated heat seal machine?

Look for enhanced safety features which may include safety shields, heat-resistant handles, and emergency stop buttons, depending on the model.
