Food and catering
Filtermist International has been selected to supply Spray-on Technology Ltd with oil mist collector units for the company's new top-of-the-range food spraying machine. Each 'Ecodisc Midi' is fitted with 24 separate disc sprayers and a stainless steel Filtermist FX4000.
Spray-on Technology manufacture a wide range of machinery for an international customer base. The machines apply different coatings (releasing agents, fats, oils and flavours etc) directly onto food products and into baking trays; typical applications include bread, pizzas, poultry, biscuits, cakes and confectionary.
The company uses two main principles of operation to apply the coatings; spinning discs, which evenly coat the entire food product, and spray nozzles for directional coatings. Both methodologies create airborne mist that needs to be removed for hygienic and cross contamination reasons.
The Filtermist collector units use centrifugal impaction to remove the residual mist and ensure the machines don't become sticky or gummed-up with the old coatings. Internal vanes are rotated at high-speed to impact against the mist droplets, condensing them back into a liquid as they are drawn through the collector unit and safely deposited into waste outlets. The collectors are manufactured in stainless steel for easy cleaning and extreme anticorrosive properties. collection airflows range from 180 m3/hour up to 2750 m3/hour.
"Filtermist took great care selecting the right collector unit for each application and they have been totally reliable from day one."
Filtermist worked closely with Spray-on Technology to determine the correct collection levels for each type of machine.
