Many materials are difficult to spray due to high viscosities or because they do not flow or are solid at room temperature. Spraying Systems Co. offers automated systems intended to heat and regulate the flow of these materials, without which it would not be possible to generate an adequately atomized spray. Typical applications include:
- Heated chocolate and other ingredients in the food processing industry
- Heated materials in the pharmaceutical industry to achieve specific material properties
- Heated cleaning materials in tank cleaning applications
Our typical testing process for heated materials usually includes a rheological assessment of the material pre/post heating, heated system settings optimization and conveyor testing for proper target coating.
