Liquid products flavors or additives - PCM Additive station

PCM Additive Station is an ideal equipment for aromas and other liquid additives.

The PCM Additive Station is a pumping equipment of single or multi-flavours or liquid additives with drum suction lance. The flavour or additive dose is injected upstream from mixing step into the transfer piping of the main product.

Compact and easily integrated to existing facilities, the PCM additive station can be synchronized either by the conditioning and packaging machines, or depending on the main product flow. Equipped with stainless steel suction rod with low level detection probe to control the end of the tray, the additive station answers perfectly to users looking for safe and accurate dosing process within their complete production chain.

In West Africa, a palm oil manufacturer picked the PCM additive station to dose vitamin A into the bottles of oil. Before PCM, the vitamin additive was mixed with the oil in vats, which required large quantities of vitamin to make sure each bottle contained the required dose. By switching to PCM in-line dosing, the company now uses 50% less additive.
