Coating food using electrostatics

Spice Application Systems Ltd (SAS) specialises in using electrostatic technology to apply flavourings, coatings, powders, additives, vitamins, spices and oils to a wide range of food and pharmaceutical products.

We have our own test facilities onsite and access to laboratory tests in one of the UK’s leading universities.

SAS’s equipment has already been installed by many of the world’s leading food processors across North America, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia and Oceania. (See our distributors).

In today’s health conscious environment, where application levels for oils, fats and sugars need to be tightly controlled, the accuracy of SAS’s equipment enables you to see exactly how much is being applied at any one time. Suitable products include, but not limited to, breakfast cereals, cheese, confectionery, meat, vegetables and pet food.
