Products such as dried herbs can be sprinkled with even precision on to the top of produce using Saturn's Sprinkler. The sprinkler head is mounted over its own integral conveyor.
The machine uses an interchangeable, grooved roller that is driven by an inverter controlled, electric motor, which is mounted on the bottom of a hopper, containing the product to be sprinkled. The principle sees the roller rotate, sprinkling onto the product on the transport band. The application rate is regulated by adjusting the speed of rotation of the roller, using the digital potentiometer in the control cabinet. The grooves in the roller are machined to the granular size of the product being sprinkled. Where different granular sizes of products are to be used, interchangeable application rollers may be required for each product.
