VPLS sprayers use proprietary dispersion drums to atomize and distribute liquid across the band. The speed of rotation controls the particle size and a variable speed pump controls the application rate. They are highly tolerant of particles in the liquid stream whether this is salt or product debris or suspended seasoning in slurries. They are direct drive to minimize bearings, seals and wearing components.
Depending on the application, there are several different versions including oil, high solids and very low flow. The dispersion drum has liquid distributed in the inner cavity by an inlet tube to create a wide spray pattern perpendicular to the belt and product travel. The raw spray pattern is modified by internal shrouding to create a uniform distribution across the band. This pattern is consistent over a wide turn-down on the pump speed.
Dispersion drums are flexible for a wide range of liquid applications and flow rates. Distribution uniformity is excellent to provide greater control and less product loss due to over application.
