Topping system – PCM Dosytop

PCM Dosytop is the ideal system for coating and applying viscous and/or heterogeneous ingredients to various culinary preparations.

The technology of the PCM dispensing system will be chosen according to the manufacturing process: Dosys™ pumps will be used for discontinuous dispensing while for a continuous process, progressive cavity pumps Moineau™ will be chosen as dosing pumps.

The equipment is completed by nozzles well adapted to the product to be dosed, providing the customer with a fully automated, consistent, reliable and accurate system. In addition, the PCM dispensing station can be equipped with a cleaning system in place, ensuring strict hygiene conditions at each production start or ingredient change.

This product is 3A and FDA certified, guaranteeing compliance with very strict hygiene standards.

Example of realization

PCM DOSYTOP 4 HEADS - Topping of chicken or tuna mix preparation on breads

Process

  • Doses from 28 to 60gr/bread [0.06 to 0.13 lbs]- machine cadence: 3500 breads/h
  • Manual loading of the customer preparations directly on the hoppers
  • Automatic product priming to the conditioning nozzles
  • Automatic dose adjustment through recipes management
  • Top dosing when the cells detect the presence of bread
  • Simultaneous topping of the mix preparation with 4 heads
  • Manually vertical and lateral adjustment of conditioning nozzles
  • Detection of low tank level for hopper loading or end of production
  • Cleaning in place (excluding hoppers) with CIP collector to be positioned at the nozzle outlet

Construction

  • 2 x 50L [13.2 usgal] loading tanks with covers
  • 1 dosing unit equipped with 4 Dosys™ technology pumps
  • Brushless actuator enabling automatic recipes management
  • 1 topping station with 4 whole way suckback nozzles (diameter: 20 mm [0.79 inch])
  • Nozzles and handwheels plate for manual adjustment of nozzle positioning
  • 316L stainless steel priming and CIP return collector
  • 1 electrical panel

PCM DOSYTOP 14 HEADS - Jam topping on rectangular shortbreads

Process

  • Product doses: 7gr/biscuit [0.015 lbs]- machine cadence: 450 to 850 biscuits/mn (60 topping/mn max on 14 biscuits rows)
  • Product viscosity: from 200 000cpo to 350 000cpo
  • Drum unloading (customer product) to the feeding system tank
  • The feeding system supplies a transfer pump and limits the incoporation of air into the high viscosity customer preparation. The transfer pump feeds the overall topping system which is equipped with 14 dosing pumps.
  • Topping synchronization with the conveyor movement (belt speed)
  • The dough pieces are detected by rows. The topping is triggered by the presence of the dough piece.
  • Jam topping on 14 dough pieces simultaneously
  • Cleaning in place of the overall system (feeding/transfer/topping systems)

Construction

  • 1 Viscofeeder equipped with a 500L tank [132 usgal] and a feeding pressure controller
  • 1 Moineau™ technology transfer pump (integrated into the feeding system)
  • 1 316L stainless steel feeding collector with 14 heads
  • 1 topping unit including 14 Moineau™ dosing pumps
  • 14 nozzles specifically designed for the topping on biscuits
  • 1 conveyor tracking system using Brushless technology and detection cells
