A well-known convenience food processor needed to apply egg glaze on their Yorkshire pudding to ensure a tasty looking side dish. Over the years they perfected their egg glazing recipe to very specific requirements: Maximum 2gr. of glaze per pie at a temperature between 5 and 8°C.
To do this they were using a spinning disc system to apply the glaze on the puddings as they arrive on a moving conveyor in rows of 6. Unfortunately this system was using a recirculation process that heated up the glaze. It was adding temperature to the egg wash quicker than they could process, resulting in ingredients being scrapped. Furthermore the system they were using wasn’t accurate enough to guarantee a maximum of 2gr. per pudding. Clearly, this solution was no longer sustainable.
To solve the problem the food processor started looking for a consistent and accurate method of applying the egg glaze so their requirements would be met. This way they could improve the quality of their pudding and reduce scrap.
