Precision spraying

For food processing, building materials manufacturing and any other industry looking to save resources and improve product quality, precision spraying systems are a simple yet highly effective solution for coating, moistening, and lubricating applications where expensive compounds or ingredients need to be sprayed directly onto a process target.

The FlexFlow™ control system is the simplest means of controlling automatic nozzles to achieve extremely precise spraying. Click the FlexFlow icon below for details. Read on to discover the benefits of FlexFlow™ systems in food and industrial manufacturing operations.

To discover the different nozzles which can be paired with FlexFlow and the relative merits of each, watch the videos below or watch our full precision spraying video series.

Precision spray control for food processing

Precision spray control systems can provide even spray coverage with minimal waste. They deliver optimal spray performance for applying flavours, coatings, mold inhibitors, antimicrobials, preservatives, release agents and moisturisers with exceptional accuracy.


  • Control a wide range of flow rates
  • Guarantee an even and uniform application rate that connects with conveyor line for automated speed adjustments
  • Reduce consumption of expensive coatings
  • Reliable spray dosing provides an accurate calorie count
  • Reduce overspray waste and improve product quality
  • Exact target coatings secure a clean and safe environment
  • Promote increased production
  • Reduce maintenance and downtime

Types of food processing operations examples

  • Application of antimicrobial agents for food safety
  • Application of preservatives and mold inhibitors to help extend shelf life
  • Application of egg wash
  • Coat bottles to minimise scuff damage
  • Apply water to balance moisture loss from the freezing process
  • Apply coatings and release agents to pans, cookie sheets, and conveyors to prevent sticking
  • Apply flavours, oil, and butter to enhance the appearance and improve the taste of products
  • Apply viscous coatings like syrups and glaze

Precision spray control for industrial manufacturing

FlexFlow Spray Systems provide solution confidence for precise applications of resin, wax, water, and release agents during manufacturing of, for example, engineered wood production. It addresses problems involving overspray or underspray to ensure production efficiency for chips, mats, cauls, or belts. 


  • Ensure precise application and reduce waste
  • Integrate tonnage or line speed to maintain uniform coverage when variables change
  • Reduce the use of expensive resins, waxes, or release agents by applying the exact volume required
  • Apply the optimal amount of surface moisture to increase production by decreasing time in the press
  • Confidently transition to running full polymeric MDI (methylene diphenyl diisocyanate) products with non-stick press protection
  • Eliminate compressed air from most pre-press and wax operations

Types of food processing operations examples

  • Apply PMDI (polymeric diphenylmethane diisocyanate) or LPF (lignin-phenol-formaldehyde) resin in the blender
  • Apply slack wax, tallow wax or e-wax in the blender
  • Add surface moisture before pressing boards
  • Apply mixed release agent on mats, cauls, or press belts when using PMDI resins
  • Mark nail lines on OSB (oriented strand board)
