The seasoning drum tumbler also called a snack food flavoring machine is mainly used for the mixing of seasoning powder with raw materials in the later stage of food processing. Its application range includes seasoning for various fried foods, pasta snacks, puffed snacks, etc. There are two common food seasoning machines, the octagonal seasoning machine, and the continuous seasoning machine. The commercial seasoning machine has a high degree of automation and uniform mixing. It is the ideal equipment for the food processing industry. In actual use, how do we use and maintain it correctly to maximize the effect of the seasoning machine and prolong the service life?
Operation and maintenance of octagonal seasoning machine
The structure of the octagonal mixing machine is simple and practical. The barrel is made of stainless steel octagonal design, which avoids the disadvantages of the ball-shape mixing barrel not turning over and uneven mixing, and can make the food material and the required seasoning sufficient blended in a short time. The mixing is even, and the food materials are automatically tilted and sent out of the barrel.
What are the operating procedures of octagonal seasoning equipment?
Step 1: Before starting the seasoning drum tumbler, a detailed inspection should be done to see if there is any looseness in the fastening parts. Check whether the power cord is damaged. Whether there is any foreign matter in the barrel. Check whether the use voltage meets the requirements and whether the machine is grounded.
Step 2: Put the flavoring machine down and turn it on. After the machine runs safely for one minute, shut down and put in the required mixed seasoning ingredients.
Step 3: After working for a period of time, observe whether the required seasoning materials are evenly stirred and meet the requirements. If so, turn off the machine. Push the control rod at the back of the machine to tilt the barrel forward and pour out the material.
Key issues related to maintenance of the octagonal seasoning drum tumbler
- When the industrial seasoning machine is running slowly or weak, please check the tightness of the V-belt.
- After the machine has been used for a period of time, please check the bolts of the fasteners. If they are loose, please tighten them.
- If the bearings of this machine have been used for 6 months, please fill in new lubricating oil.
Guide to use and maintain the continuous seasoning machine
Continuous seasoning machine is used for continuous seasoning during food production. This equipment has an inclination-type seasoning drum, which automatically controls the speed and material capacity. This type of seasoning drum tumbler can be used alone, and it is also suitable for various production lines.
How to operate the continuous flavoring machine?
Before turning on the switch, check all the transmission parts, bearings, etc., and they should be normal and reliable before starting the machine.
Startup and observation
Connect the equipment to the power source, start the drum motor, and the drum will slowly start to the normal speed. Check the state of all operating parts. If the material speed is too high, you can turn the knob of the inverter to the left. If the material moves forward in the drum too fast, the inclination of the drum can be reduced, and too slow can increase the inclination of the drum.
The raw materials that need to be stirred for seasoning are continuously fed into the seasoning machine with a conveyor or manually from the inlet end.
Starting powder spraying function
Turn on the powder-spreading motor to spray the seasoning evenly in the drum; during the working process, the powder-spreading box should always keep the seasoning, and if the seasoning is found to be insufficient, add it in time.
Shut off the machine and start the discharging function. The flavoring machine rotates reversely to automatically send the finished materials out of the cylinder.
How to correctly maintain the continuous seasoning drum tumbler?
- All feet must be adjusted well during installation to ensure the stability of the machine.
- The screws on the machine must be tightly connected.
- When using the equipment, adjust the drum speed. After the speed is moderate, the knob of the frequency converter can be adjusted.
- During debugging, the inverter should be accelerated from the slowest slowly, and it is strictly forbidden to increase the speed at once.
- Chains and gears need to be lubricated with oil regularly. The lubrication frequency is recommended once every 1-2 months.
