Wasting costly coatings?
November 1, 2011
A frozen pizza producer needed to improve precision when applying oil to dough prior to baking. The goal? To achieve a consistent calorie count and minimize oil waste. This processor installed an AutoJet® Spray System with PulsaJet® automatic spray nozzles. Operators simply select the oil application rate on the control panel – based on the recipe – and choose which nozzles to activate in order to cover the width of the dough being processed. During operation, when line speeds change, the spray controller also ensures the proper volume of oil is uniformly applied to the dough. This processor reduced oil waste and saved as much as $38,000 per year and also saved on conveyor belt replacement. Calorie count for the pizzas can now be validated.
