  • Recipe Driven Operation: This feature eliminates day to day, week to week, and month to month product variation due to improper machine set-up.   The automatic pressure control feature provided in the main processing stations, utilizes variable frequency drives to control the speed of the pump impellers to regulate spray pressure.
  • Bar Code Reader: The bar code on the product is tied to a recipe thus ensuring the operator processes the product correctly.
  • Data Collection and Archiving:  Gives real time and historical feedback and analysis.  The data is time and date stamped and can be searched by time and date and/or product code.
  • Remote Access via the Internet: Process Engineers can remotely create and share recipes between multiple facilities, as well as view the status of and operate machine controls using any internet capable device.  The machine can be accessed for diagnostic reasons or to implement programming enhancements.
