PLP SYSTEMS has developed a new continuous coating series MTX, this machine has been developed from a decade’s experience of the MT series, it’s an evolution focusing on hygiene and retention time. With 3 models MTX30, MTX50 and MTX100, able to cover all ranges of production capacity from 1 to 20 ton/h.
The Pet food industry requires a high-level hygiene standard in order to ensure the quality and safeness of their products. For this reason, equipment should be designed to avoid black spots where the dirt could build up causing a possible source of salmonella and other bacteria’s and moulds. MTX series coaters are designed in accordance to this standard and it’s possible to integrate a CIP Clean In Place for an automated cleaning procedure.
Retention time is also an important point that has been implemented on the MTX series and can also be performed on the standard MT series. Some special devices called ISD internal shaft dampers have the scope of pushing back the product with a significant retention increase.
The other implementation is called ARV01.This unit has the scope of blocking the product on the output discharge by an automated flap that is autoregulated by the level of product inside the machine. This is very helpful especially when the production line is designed to have a wide range of production, for example from 3 to 8 ton/h and on the lower capacity the ARV01 makes the difference.
