The DiscMaster™ Spraying System

 

 

The DiscMaster™ series of Spraying Machines have been designed as the versatile system of choice for small to medium scale business. It provides the important economies of scale and manufacturing flexibility that such operations demand. High operational up time is achieved by the blockage resistant spray delivery system, which coupled with easy maintenance access, minimises downtime and delivers a quick ROI for business managers. Transportable on castors for easy relocation within the factory, it can be used as either a stand-alone offline unit or integrated into a small production facility.

Configured during manufacturing to provide Top, Top & Sides or All Over Full Spray Coverage, these machines utilise the same proven spinning disc spray technology, previously associated with professional level equipment. For operation at temperatures other than ambient, the heating/chiller packs can maintain the unit at the appropriate temperature for either heated or chilled spraying operations.

Operationally, the DiscMaster™ offers repeatable precision in the application of spray material, previously unavailable at this investment level. Precision Inverter/Motor Control Systems provide digital control to the Spinning Disc Speed, Pump Speed and the Conveyor Speed, allowing full control over the droplet formation and deposition of the spray material. Recording the setting of the digital potentiometer for each of the key control systems provides a unique digital signature for each machine set-up. Product changeovers can be quickly accommodated by entering the signature code into the machine for the appropriate machine configuration. The precision accuracy inherent in the system ensures it correctly returns to an identical set-up as the last batch of that particular product. A proportion of the pump output is returned directly to the reservoir tank, which provides:

  • Improved precision in the control of the spray application rate
     
  • Continuous re-circulation which inhibits the separation of emulsions
     
  • Enhanced temperature stabilisation of the spray material

Operational Benefits

System Construction

Built as a single integral unit with removable access panels and stainless steel pipe work, the DiscMaster™ is designed for ease of cleaning and maintenance. When configured for both top and bottom spraying the minimum working height of the conveyor belt will be 1050 mm. The Standard Disc Motor supplied is an IP66 Stainless Steel which provides a high level of water protection with an excellent cosmetic finish. It allows for easy cleaning as well as ease of maintenance

The width of the machine can be selected to suit either the application or the existing conveyor belt width. The machine series can accommodate line widths from 300 mm to 700 mm. The maximum number of spray heads on the top is four with two spray heads fitted underneath.

The standard length of the machine is 1000 mm, but the in-feed and out-feed can be extended as required to meet system installation requirements {see 'Extended Conveyor' section below}. Conveyor belts can be either stainless steel wire enrobing for loose product or chain drive for trays. The maximum belt width available with the DiscMaster™ series is 700 mm.

System Configuration Options

System Materials

The machine is constructed in stainless steel grade 304, with pipework in 316-grade steel. All components in direct contact with the material being sprayed and the product are stainless steel or other food quality materials. The design ensures all areas of the machine are fully accessible for cleaning and every effort is made to ensure the hygiene aspects of the machine are to the highest possible standard.

System Electrical Requirements

These machines require a single phase mains power connection for operation, the equipment will be configured to work with the standard single phase voltage systems in the country of operation. Note: If a Temperature Control System is integrated into the unit then a 3 phase supply will be required.

UK Power Requirements: 240V Single Phase 50Hz & Earth
