Sovol 3D Sealed Vacuum Storage Kit: High-Quality Filament Storage Option

Sovol 3D Printer Filament Storage Kit 

This system works great for storing filament and have a one-way valve for removing the air that looks like it’s just a sticker but holds the vacuum just fine.  Almost all filament is hygroscopic, so if you 3d print and don’t have a dry cabinet/room you should grab a box of these.  They simply work and will reduce the humidity in your stored filament.  

Features:

  • Sovol 3D Printer Filament Storage Kit protects your filament from moisture.  
  • Bag size: 30*34cm. Only Fits 1kg filament or smaller.
  • Each durable vacuum compression bag has a heavy-duty valve and double seal zipper for airtight protection.
  • Bags are clear to promote easy monitoring of the humidity indicator cards.
  • The humidity indicator cards can be reused.
  • Package includes – Hand Pump × 1, Vacuum Bag × 10, Sealing Clip × 1, Desiccant × 10, Humidity Indicator Card × 10

It is an inexpensive solution to protect my spools of filament. I have tried many different products to store my 3D printer filaments to avoid damage from humidity.  These products including zipper-seal bags such as freeze bags, plastic food storage containers, camera dry cabinets, and containers that are made specifically for filament.  Most work, but often they are expensive and do not allow for efficient storage of the rolls.

I purchase this product and thought I would give it a try after seeing it on Amazon.  It arrived at my house in 3 days thanks to Amazon Prime and a slight delay due to adverse weather. The packaging was perfect.  The silica packs will need to be dried once you receive them but all you to do is pop them in the oven.

Sovol 3D Printer Filament Storage Bags

Quality:  The bags fit a full-size filament spool and fully seal easily.  The zippers are easy to close.  The vacuum pump has good suction and the bag vent works.  As with most bags, you might have to reposition the vent a few times. 

The Value

Value: Great value for the money.  The vacuum seal bags are the easiest and most cost-effective solution I have found so far. Just add a silica desiccant pack and you are good to go.  They simply just work.

The Pump

I consider myself pretty experienced with 3D printing. I am on a mission to find the best quality products I can find. This one of the most cost-effective and high-quality products I have purchased.  

Rating:

  • Quality: 5/5
  • Price: 5/5
  • Ease of use: 4/5 
  • Overall: 4.5/5

CONCLUSION:

The SOVOL bags and pump seem to be of good quality.  I recommend this to other 3d Printer Fanatics.  Now, I might design an adaptor to allow me to vacuum the air out with my Dyson vacuum.  I willed and 96 hours and counting….it maintains the vacuum so far.
