ViscoTec was nominated and awarded – the company receives the silver medal for the Hygienic Dispenser. These Dispenser is based on the proven endless piston principle (progressive cavity technology) and focus on the highest hygienic and cleaning requirements. The Hygienic Dispenser enables the high-precision and gentle dosing and filling of very small quantities of liquids or highly viscous pastes in the food industry. Automated solutions with the dispenser can be realized with robots or other systems. With the small and compact design of these kind of progressive cavity pumps, chocolate or sugar coatings can be applied to baked goods, for example. At Anuga FoodTec, ViscoTec shows its latest product: An even smaller dispenser with a minimum dosing quantity of approx. 0.06 ml and an accuracy of +/-1 %. The optional adjustable suck-back guarantees a clean process without dripping and with perfect thread break. This enables several applications in a wide variety of food processes.
