The Mistcoater Advantage
The Mistcoater uses spinning disks instead of spray nozzles for applying liquids to dry solids in a continuous flow process. The unit prevents clogging with liquids that have suspended solids such as slurries and solutions with a high percentage of sugar or salt.
- There are no spray nozzles that can clog
- Multiple liquids can be applied through one inlet point
- Less head pressure required of liquid pumps due to the lack of liquid inlet restriction
The Mistcoater Process
The product to be coated enters into the machine and falls onto a rotating “dry disk”. The material falls off the dry disk in a cascading helical pattern. Simultaneously, the liquid is pumped onto spinning disks located in the center of the cascading product. This liquid is atomized and applied to the falling dry material. Internal scrapers prevent product build up on the walls of the coating chamber.
