HOME BUILT NITROGEN FOOD PACKAGING SYSTEM
By: Millwright

This system was developed as an alternative to vacuum packaging and is derived from several methods either currently or no longer available from other sources. All components that need to be purchased are available  through industrial supply outlets. Some components can be fabricated using items that most of us have lying around the shop already.

Our system cost under $200. This cost was divided between 2 households. Vacuum pumps can get expensive. A hand pump will work fine; all it has to do is remove the air trapped in the bag and contents. We got lucky and found ours at a discounted price. The following itemized list gives each component name, description, our source and vendor part number if applicable:
