Food Coating Nozzles

Apply thin fluid coatings to food products during the production process


BETE offers a wide selection of nozzles which are useful for coating products in the food industry. BETE coating nozzles are designed to spray evenly with no dripping, whether they are applying a thin egg wash coating or spraying a thick glazing onto a product. BETE engineers have decades of experience in recommending custom coating spraying solutions for all types of food processing systems, such as conveyor coating and drum-mixing systems. A wide selection of direct pressure nozzles and air assisted nozzles, combined with pneumatic control options, allows BETE to tailor a solution to your needs. Regardless of whether you are dispersing liquid ingredients into a coating pan, spraying glazes, oils, bakery release agents, applying a syrup solution to a product travelling on a conveyor, or dosing a batch with spice-flavored oil, BETE has a nozzle to provide even spray coverage with minimal waste.

Selecting a Food Coating Nozzle:

Important factors to consider:

  • Available / required flow rate
  • Available pressure drop (∆P) across the nozzle
    • ∆P = supply pressure at nozzle inlet - process pressure outside nozzle
  • Viscosity and thickness of coating spray media
  • Required evenness / thickness of coating
  • Continuous or intermediate operation
  • Available nozzle mounting positions
  • Minimizing over-spray
  • Materials
  • Our experienced engineers can help determine which nozzle will perform as required with your design details

Common Food Coating Nozzle Uses and Industries:

  • Spraying egg wash or glazing coatings
  • Coating dough to aid crust formation during baking
  • Applying flavorings, preservatives, dyes, or disinfectants
  • Spraying glazes and other solutions onto food products
  • Dosing specific amounts of product
