Podmores have constructed a system
perfectly suited to flavouring snack food products, especially preparing
potato chips for rotary flavour coating. The de-oiling and flavour feed
vibratory feeder based system remains an increasingly popular method of
preparing products by first shaking them over an angled vibratory
feeder fitted with screens to remove excess oils from the cooking
process with flavours being added by the separate feeder situated
The feeders load the de-oiled product
and flavours into a rotary mixer and has been commissioned for a 100kg
throughput per hour which easily meets the customer's criteria -
substantially higher rates were achieved in testing.
The entire unit was constructed out of 304 stainless steel because of
the food hygiene requirements of this job and was made to measure to fit
around the customers’ existing machinery.
Andrew Gough, Managing Director at
Podmores, said: ‘Podmores have been a dominant force in the food and
drink machinery market and this is a perfect example of an international
customer recognising that we have the ability to meet the exact
requirements they needed. This tried and tested automated system enables
the customer to easily manage their flavouring process and requires
minimal human attention throughout’.
This bespoke system was specially designed for this application but
similar systems can also be developed to handle products for the
