Automatic Coating Pan

Automatic coating pan for coating with sugar syrup, sugarless solution, chocolate or fat mass. The coating vessel itself is a horizontal cylinder supported on 4 free running shaft wheels.The pan is driven by a teethed belt all around the external perimeter. During coating the level of product inside is low and spread out wide so that the product dries faster and undergoes less friction and pressure during the coating process. Uniform air distribution along the coating pan ensures even exposure of the product to air and since a nagative pressure is maintained inside, no dust escapes. Inside the coating pan, special nozzles spray the coating solution onto the products. Aroma, colour, capol and powder additives can be applied through additional devices. During the entire coating cycle, no operator is needed. The machine has fast cycle times for example approx 4 hours for a 30% suga shell, including polishing. The polishing cycle takes place automatically after the coating cycle has finished.

Generally these coating pans are delivered turn key and complete including side equipment, depending on the application, such as syrup cookers, dissolvers for sugarless solutions, dust collection and air suction systems, syrup tanks, chocolate tanks, powder distribution systems, automatic loading and unloading systems and CIP systems. The dedicated air handling and drying unit is one important ancillary machine forming part of the total supply.
