Greatly reduce the amount of powder, seasonings, flavorings, and spices required to evenly coat food products like peanuts, cashews, chips, snacks, candy, cereals, cheese, and pet food using electrostatic technology. Apply powders, coatings, flavorings, vitamins, spices, and oils evenly to a wide range of food, pharmaceutical, and chemical products.

Electrostatic seasoning systems evenly coat food and pharmaceutical products with seasonings and flavorings. Apply 15-45% less powders, flavors, coatings, vitamins, spices, and oils to a wide range of products. Design and implement a complete system that is manufactured to food-grade industry standards.
Seasoning Cashews and Other Nuts Using an Electrostatic Coating System
Dramatic Reduction in Seasoning and Powder Usage!
Electrostatic Seasoning vs. Other Powder Technologies:
Accurate dosing of seasonings into a tumbling drum, easy cleaning, reliability
Feeder used to dispense seasonings into a tumbling drum
Food production facilities use vibrating feeders (a.k.a. vibratory pan feeders -or- scarf feeders) for dispensing seasonings and spices directly onto the surface of food products as they tumble in a drum. This process is referred to as enrobing. The feeder can also meter seasonings precisely into a blended seasoning batch, or as an application of toppings and coatings in downstream processing equipment.
Stainless steel IBC container loaded onto discharge station above bag packaging equipment
Trying to decide between bulk bags vs. IBC containers for your food grade packaging plant? Stainless steel IBC containers, or intermediate bulk containers, are easier-to-use, clean, and add into existing operations at food and beverage processing plants.
The simplest version of a stainless steel IBC system would include a set of IBCs and a discharge station. These would replace traditional bulk bag unloaders and bulk bags, or FIBCs.
Commercial producers seasoning tortilla chips and potato chips can benefit greatly from the use of electrostatics to evenly apply dry spices, powders, seasonings, and oils. This type of seasoning system provides up to 98% coating efficiency of all chip products, while using 15-45% less dry powder seasonings. It also dramatically reduces the amount of airborne dust and seasoning, which results in a much cleaner working area, cleaner seasoning drum, and less line contamination.
Seasoning tortilla chips and potato chips tumbling in rotating drum
With this type of electrostatic seasoning and coating system, the customer was able to produce seasoned nut and seed food products in one day instead of seven. It also greatly reduced production costs associated with the previous system, providing a quick ROI. It can be retrofitted to existing seasoning equipment and systems.

Apply many different types of seasonings such as ranch, bacon ranch, salt and pepper, parmesan and pepper, buffalo flavored, BBQ, cinnamon, churro flavored, salt and vinegar, sweet and salty, and wasabi. These types of custom seasonings can be applied to nuts, seeds, popcorn, cheese, chips, and other snack food products.
Dill pickle seasoning being applied to cashews using electrostatic coating process
Using an electrostatic coating system can greatly reduce starch powder build-up on cheese processing lines while reducing airborne powder. This will significantly reduce the amount of waste powder during the coating process.
We accurately control the amount of powder (starch) discharged onto the shredded cheese. This feeding system is designed to atomize dry spices, starches, cellulose powders, and other anti-caking agents as they are applied to the shredded cheese rotating in the food coating drum. Located at the discharge of the dosing feeder is a negatively charged electrostatic field to create an electrostatic charge in the powder. This negatively charge field is pointing toward the cheese rotating in the drum. The starch is then attracted to the positively charged cheese rotating in the drum.
Apply seasoning, spices, sugar and other coatings to peanuts and snack products using electrostatic technology for up to 45% seasoning reduction. It has been used with peanuts, cashews, macadamia nuts and many other types of fragile snack products like chips, pretzels, pastas, rice, cheese and more.
This type of spice application system can be installed on new or existing machines and systems.
