Apples and windjets

Fruit and vegetable processors need to ensure that their produce has been thoroughly dried before packaging to avoid damage to the packaging and also to prevent possible food safety concerns. The longer that wet produce remains boxed or bagged before being put on the shelves, the higher the chance for bacteria to grow and affect the safety of the product.

Air nozzles are a suitable choice for drying operations as they are able to convert a low-pressure volume of compressed air into a targeted high-velocity concentrated air stream. The WindJet AA727 air nozzles generate an efficient and controlled flat fan air pattern for uniform spray distribution. The air nozzles are designed to maintain spray pattern integrity, which results in produce being able to be dried quicker and more uniformly.

The air nozzles utilise compressed air and when used in place of open pipes to dry produce, the company says they can reduce air use by 25% to 35%, leading to savings for the operator. In addition, the WindJet AA727 air nozzles reduce noise levels, making them a safer option for workers to be around. Depending on the initial air pressure, perceived noise levels can be reduced by up to 60% it is claimed.

If processors require an air curtain for their operations, the WindJet AA727 air nozzles can be placed side by side. For applications that require a spray bar, it is possible to mount a set of the air nozzles to fit the desired spray bar length.
