Flavourings are commonly mixed with a carrier oil to improve handling and application during the manufacturing process. Flavours are not restricted to simple liquid additives but can also include powders, providing they dissolve completely.
The key requirements associated with successful application of flavourings are:
• Blockage Free Application Process
• Controlled Deposition Rate
• Consistent Batch to Batch Performance
• Quick Changeover of Flavours
• High Yield Rate
Applying flavour requires the control of the deposition rate. The process should also be replicable between batches to ensure product consistency. However, balance and finesse are also important qualities to discuss, since some flavours impart a stronger impression than others. Nozzles and spray guns simply block and production downtime increases exponentially.
Saturn Spraying Systems’ range of spinning disc machine is ideal for the process of applying flavour. The DiscMaster™ and DiscMatic™ machines are virtually blockage free and are able to apply just the right amount of flavour in a consistent and replicable way time after time.
