Nut & Sugar Sprinkling
Granular products such as sugars, nuts, dried herbs, breadcrumbs and various seeds, such as poppy, sesame and cracked wheat, 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 sprinkler uses an interchangeable, grooved roller which is driven by an inverter controlled, electric motor. The roller is mounted on the bottom of a hopper, into which the granular material to be sprinkled is placed. As the roller rotates, granular products in the hopper, are gravity fed to engage with the grooved roller. The grooves picks up granuals and rotates through 180 degrees. The granular products are now free to drop by gravity onto the products directly underneath the roller.
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 accept 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.
