Spacers and transport rails
Fruit bars and granola bars are made from a chewy, sticky mass. The shaped dough is cut into long strips and then divided into portions. The bars are sealed in foil and then conveyed to the outer packaging process. Frequent interruptions occur in the production flow during cutting, transporting and portioning, as the cut strips either stick to one another or the individual fruit bars adhere to the transport rails. This results in machine downtime and production time losses.
Coating the spacers and rails with ChemCoat® significantly improves the production flow. The optimized nonstick properties prevent the dough strips from sticking together. The improved sliding properties reduce frictional resistance and allow the fruit bars to slide effortlessly along the track to the packaging station. Interruptions for cleaning or removing jams can be avoided. Optimizes production times and considerably reduces production costs.
