Coating

Kuipers offers our customers the latest coating machine design for automatic and continuous coating. The equipment allows the finest covering of peanuts by gradually adding the powder mix in 9 steps. Our unit can be customized for various powder mixes and adapted to the local market’s requirements.
From the peanut dosing system, a pre-set volume of raw or predried nuts are supplied into the first compartment of the coating unit. Good rotation of the product is essential to form the coating layer, therefore, instead of sliding, the peanuts are forced to rotate inside.

The product is transported compartment by compartment allowing gradual development of the layer. Each compartment has individual water spray and powder supplies with adjustable intervals. The time interval between the transfers as well as the water spray and powder supplies are controlled. Consequently the PLC controls the interchange of the water spray and the powder supply in relation to each other. This forms an even, fine coating.

Kuipers coating machine is unique as it allows automatic and continuous coating. It is important to note that when coated the peanuts become buoyant, thus the fryer design needs to be carefully checked. Our coating machines can process up to 300 kg per hour depending on the coating structure. If the capacity required is larger, various coating machines can be used simultaneously.

Flavoring

To obtain the desirable flavor, spreading and even surface coverage all around the product, we apply our special shape mixing drum, combined with an accurately controlled dosing system for salt and/or flavor.

Inside the rotating drum a high speed spreading system spreads the flavor in a cloud over the product. Electrically the flavoring system has its own control board.

A direct electrical connection will be made to the production plant so that the centralized computer system assures proper functioning and adjustments during processing. All these systems are mounted in one
single main frame on wheels.

The system consists of:

1. Rotating mixing drum

2. Salt/flavour dosing system

3. Salt/flavour spreading system

Flavoring

This installation is designed to cover the peanuts with a layer of liquid dough or ”batter”. The thickness of this layer depends on the composition and water content of the ‘’batter mix’’. The battered peanuts will then be fried in oil, therefore must be supplied directly into a special type peanut fryer which includes specific provisions inside the oil bath to transport the swimming product in a pre-set frying time. The process is automatic and continuous. The end product, the battered nuts, can be adapted according to the customer’s requirements, for example flavouring could be added. Kuipers battering unit can produce up to 400 kilograms of end product per hour. Final capacity may vary depending on the batter type and the desired thickness of the layer. We recommend raw peanuts with skin for better results.
