Title
(EN) VIBRATORY ARTICLE COATER AND METHOD
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL D'ENROBAGE D'ARTICLES PAR VIBRATION
Abstract
(EN)
A vibratory coating apparatus (10) and method may be used to coat articles, such as chocolate pieces (11), with discrete coating materials (13). The coating apparatus (10) features a feed bowl (20) with an attached ramp system (22). The feed bowl (20) and ramp systems (22) are mounted upon a vibratory drive assembly (14) which imparts a vibratory motion, at a predetermined frequency, to the bowl (20) and ramp system (22). The vibratory motion causes agitation of the chocolate pieces (11) and coatings (13), and causes the coated chocolate (11) and loose coatings (13) to migrate up the ramp system (22), and out of the coating apparatus (10).
(FR)
Un appareil (10) d'enrobage par vibration peut être utilisé pour enrober des articles, tels que des morceaux de chocolat (11) avec des matières d'enrobage (13) individuelles. L'appareil d'enrobage (10) comprend une cuve d'alimentation (20) à laquelle est fixé un système à rampe (22). La cuve d'alimentation (20) et le système à rampe (22) sont montés sur une unité motrice vibratoire (14) qui confère un mouvement vibratoire, à une fréquence prédéterminée, à la cuve (20) et au système à rampe (22). Le mouvement vibratoire provoque l'agitation des morceaux de chocolat (11) et des enrobages (13), et fait monter par le système à rampe (22) les chocolats enrobés (11) et les enrobages libres (13) pour les faire sortir de l'appareil d'enrobage (10).
