A new seasoning line can cut product damage by up to 60 per
cent compared to traditional vibratory methods, claims the
manufacturer.

Heat and Control's Revolution system is designed specifically for packaging and on-machine seasoning processes. Heat and Control said its system is supplied complete with a feed conveyor, a drum, seasoning feeder, and Flex-Wall seasoning hopper and feeder, and controls. The system's foundation is the FastBack horizontal motion conveyor, the company stated. "It's slow-forward fast-back motion cuts product breakage up to 60 per cent compared to vibratory conveying,"​ the firm claimed. "Seasonings remain on the product and do not build-up in the conveyor pan."​ Instead of dropping delicate baked products and snacks into a separate tumble drum, the Revolution system slides them into a revolving drum that is integrated into the FastBack conveyor and flush with the bottom of its pan. "By eliminating the traditional tumble drum, Revolution eliminates a major product drop and excess product breakage,"​ Heat and Control claimed. "The complete system requires less length and height so it takes less space in the packaging line."​ The company's Excaliber feeder then meters seasoning into the drum where special flights mix seasoning and product. The Revolution drum can be removed by loosening a single clamp, allowing workers to exchange it with a clean one. The drum can also be cleaned away from the processing line. The Excaliber and seasoning hopper liner can also be removed without tools for cleaning or rapid exchange. "Changeover time is minimal and reduces the possibility of cross contamination and allergen problems,"​ Heat and Control claimed. Precise product feed control, which is unaffected by product density or bed depth, is maintained by the FastBack horizontal motion conveyor and a product measuring system. "Seasoning feed automatically adjusts to match changes in product flow, improving coating uniformity and reducing seasoning waste,"​ Heat and Control claimed. Processors can chose to add on options components, including a pivoting base that provides greater access to the drum. An upgrade to the Auto Feed Adjust allows the line's weigher to control product feed, eliminating over-filling or starvation of the feed, the company claimed.
