Biscuit & Snack Food Products Applications
Oil & Salt Coating
Oil & Salt coating of Biscuits and Snacks is easily accomplished with Saturn’s DiscMatic™ Slurry System. As with the application of flavours, spices and seasoning, a base layer of oil provides the medium for the additive to form a simple slurry mixture. This is a particularly efficient and effective way of applying your coating as in one step it reduces the number and expense of the processing equipment and improves the adhesion and distribution of the particulate over the food product.
The technology available to apply this slurry spray is limited almost entirely to spinning disc spraying with its virtual blockage free performance since nozzle appliances spectacularly fail in this area.
Saturn Slurry machines use hygienic stainless steel pumps, absent from potential blocking points and no mating surfaces to crush and damage the product. Some types of pump throw the particles outwards causing them to stick to the chamber walls, which can create blockages and crush the particles, which, in the case of herbs etc., can change the flavour of the particle.
Saturn’s DiscMatic™ Slurry Variant System demonstrates the key features required to satisfactorily handle and apply particulates in solution.
