The present invention relates to the production of food products, namely, to make the seasoning and transportation of such products as snacks.

Example line for the production of snacks such as potato chips, described in patent publication JP No. 4-35132, which describes a method of making condiments using cylindrical (tumbling) of the drum with holes on both ends. Namely, the drum is mounted so that the axis of the shaft is inclined at a certain angle, not horizontal, and the drum rotates around the shaft and products are fed into it through the top hole. When products hallouda due to the rotation of the drum, the drum tilt causes the movement of the articles down, and products out of the drum through the bottom hole. At the same time in the drum through the top hole serves products together with seasonings in the quantity corresponding to the quantity of supplied products. Since getting products into the drum until they exit the drum products hallouda and during this time mixed with seasonings, becoming, thus, seasoned. In addition, the proportion of spices applied to the products, i.e. the proportion of the mixture is chosen optimally, so spices are made into products just in a suitable class.

In the above-described prior art drum set the priority before weighing device in the course of the stream, and products made using drum seasonings accordingly serves the weighing device. In this case, portions of the products made in the drum spices served in a weighing device continuously so that the weighing device, there are no shortage of products. In accordance with the speed of the weighing device or the operating speed of the packaging device located after the weighing device in the course of the stream, the group of products that have been seasoning, continuously out of the bottom holes of the drum, and the group has not yet seasoned products and seasoning continuously go through the top opening of the drum. In other words, in this case groups of products continuously pass through the drum, down from the front end of the drum to the back, in the course of the stream, the end. In addition, the quantity of seasoning corresponds to the number supplied in the drum of the products and the quantity supplied seasonings increases with a larger number of supplied products and decreases with a small amount of supplied products, i.e. the quantity of spices is set in such a way as to always maintain a predetermined optimum mixing ratio.

In this regard, since the product continuously into and out of the drum, which is the introduction of flavourings, the number of products that are in the drum and the time during which each product n is located in the drum, are not permanent. Sometimes the number of items in the drum is reduced or the period of stay of the goods in the drum increases, thus resulting in obtaining products with a large number made seasonings. In addition, sometimes the number of items in the drum is increased or the period of stay of the goods in the drum is reduced, thus resulting in obtaining products with fewer made seasonings. In the above publication States that changing the duration of the process of making seasonings is provided by regulating the angle of inclination of the drum. However, this result is averaged for a group of products; when using the drum mentioned construction it is practically impossible to adjust the time of the making of spices for each individual product in the drum. Because the drum is so designed that there is a possibility of free exit of products from the bottom of the hole at any point in time, some products are guaranteed to come out earlier, while other products are guaranteed to come later. As a result, for example, products that come out of the dryer before, have a shorter stay in the drum, i.e. the process of making seasonings (the time of contact of the products with seasonings) is shortened. On the other hand, when the quantity is the creation of products, remaining in the drum is reduced by products released from the drum before, the ratio of seasoning is increased, and, consequently, the introduction of spices is enhanced.

In other words, when using the tumbling drum of the prior art, having a cylindrical structure with openings at both ends, as indicated above, the ratio of the supply of products and seasonings (mix ratio) supported above the optimal value, if the total flow speed (transport speed) of the individual product groups to take as the average speed of the product. However, the individual products of the group are essentially inevitable some irregularity in making condiments, when some products seasoned stronger and others weaker. Therefore, the prior art does not provide a uniform Deposit of spices in each product specified in optimal proportions.

One of the objectives of the present invention is the uniform introduction of spices in each product specified in optimal proportions, making condiments products during transportation without making any product seasoning too large or too small quantities.

Device for making seasoning according to claim 1 of the formula of the invention is a device for transporting products from the input part to which podiums the product, to the discharge side while making condiments products, and containing the means of transportation and means for supplying seasoning. Means of transportation takes each group of items filed in the input part, section and transports each group of products to the discharge part. The means for supplying seasoning delivers the seasoning in each group of products.

According to the invention, the group of products submitted in the input part, and seasoning, served with means for supplying spices are combined together in a single group and can be transported to the unloading part separately and in isolation from other groups of products. In other words, in the period from the date of receipt of the product groups and seasonings until and until they are discharged, the output products from this group and enter new products impossible. After the group of products and seasoning entered into the device to make seasoning (regardless of the order in which they are served, they do not leave the device for making spices and new products and spices are not added, even partially, in the course of their transportation. Products and seasoning, initially filed with the device to make the seasonings in a separate group, are transported to the unloading part while maintaining the specified state. Therefore, the period of stay within the device to make condiments, i.e. the duration of the process of making seasonings (the time of contact of the products with seasonings), is the same for each product in the product group and the feed rate and the ratio of products and condiments are supported at the same level. Therefore, in each individual product condiment can be made the same, without making too big or too small. In addition, each single product condiment can be made the same in optimal proportions, if the group of products and seasoning originally filed in the above-described optimal proportions.

Device for introducing seasoning to claim 2 is a device according to claim 1 in which the means of transportation has multiple partitions, the distribution section. Partitions are provided and are located between the input part and the discharge part. In addition, the means of transporting transports the product group, by moving partitions from the input part to the discharge part of a group of products placed in the partition.

Because according to this variant, the product is transported by moving the partitions, the device for making condiments simplified. In other words, the products are isolated and placed in a section separated by a partition, and this partition is moved by moving partitions with isolated group of products between them, thereby protractor the I group of products to the discharge part. Thus, partitions simultaneously perform two combined functions of separation and transportation, simplifying the design of the device for making condiments.

Device for making seasoning according to claim 3 of the formula of the invention is the device according to claim 2, in which the means for transporting includes auger, pipe and drive. Auger continues between the input part and the discharge part. The auger is installed inside the pipe. Drive auger rotates around the axis. In addition, the auger has a helical blade, which forms a set of partitions. A partition is a space, distributed spiral blade in the pipe.

In this embodiment, the construction means of transport is an additional option for execution, in which the movement of the partitions is achieved by rotation of the screw. In other words, the spiral blade of the auger forms a set of partitions and multiple sessions (the number of which depends on the number of turns of the helical blade), a split spiral blade and formed in the axial direction inside the pipe. When a group of products and seasoning comes in a section, they are separated and isolated from other groups, they are grouped together as a separate group, with output from the group's existing products and the entrance of new products excluded, while the protractor is the WHC. In addition, when the screw is rotated around the axis of the pipe, the rotation of the spiral blade moves partitions and sections together in axial direction. In this case, the direction of movement from the input part to the discharge part is determined by selecting the direction of rotation, thereby allowing to transport groups of products from the input part to the discharge part of an isolated group of products.

In addition, many sections can be formed by using only one set, including auger and tube, and many groups of products placed separately in each section, can simultaneously be transported to the unloading part for each other.

Device for making seasoning according to claim 4 of the formula of the invention is the device according to claim 3, in which the auger continues essentially horizontally between the input and unloading parts.

Since the auger and tube, which are relatively long objects, are mounted so that they continue essentially in the horizontal rather than the vertical direction, in the present invention the height of the device to make the seasoning is kept small. In this embodiment, the group of products supplied to the device to make the seasoning is distributed in a thin layer in the horizontal direction and does not form dense skoleni is, seasoning sufficiently in contact with the product in the product group, thereby introducing seasoning to a sufficient degree. On the contrary, since the tumbling drum used in the field, transporting products through their free fall and slide down under the action of gravity, this reel will not be able to perform the function of transportation, if it is set horizontally, and therefore, inevitably you want to install the drum with some inclination. In the height of the drum in the vertical direction is increased and the product within the product group can hardly be outside (on the surface) this group, thereby impairing the uniformity of entering seasoning.

Device for making seasoning according to claim 5 of the formula of the invention is the device according to claim 4, in which the section is a space below the rotating shaft of the screw.

Inside the spiral space of the present invention uses the space below the rotating shaft of the screw as a partition, which takes a group of products and seasoning, separately from other groups of products, taking into account the fact that each of the individual spaces, separated by the spiral blade is not closed, but these spaces are mutually connected in a spiral; and that group of products and seasoning snaplive is carried out in the lower part of the inside of the pipe; that group of products and seasoning is limited to the spiral blade at least in the area below the rotating shaft of the auger, and may not move neither backward nor forward between adjacent sections.

Device for making seasonings according to claim 6 of the formula of the invention is the device according to claim 4 and claim 5, additionally containing a discharge orifice, and means to rotate the pipe. The discharge hole is provided on the outer surface of the pipe in the unloading part. The means of rotation of the tube causes the tube to rotate around the axis. Additionally, the means of rotation of the pipe controls the unloading of product groups through selective installation by rotating the pipe, the discharge aperture in the bottom position for the rash of products and other items.

In the present invention the discharge hole formed in the pipe, in which is mounted a screw, and the pipe is driven into rotation, thereby controlling the unloading of a group of products made by seasoning by changing the position of the discharge hole. Therefore, you can optionally switch between discharge (skin rash), as auger and tube are located approximately in a horizontal direction, and the product is poured from the device to make condiments, when the discharge opening is at the bottom, and the lack unload position, different from iznaga), for example, performing the function of the synchronized bunker. In addition, since this structure is integrated into the device to make condiments, it is more compact than separately provided regular synchronized bunker.

In addition, when the product is transported with the rotation of the screw, the group's products in adjacent sections, safely reaching the unloading part, unfortunately, will be continuously discharged without any pause, if the discharge hole constantly at bottom. On the contrary, according to the invention, each group of products in related sections isolated by switching the discharge aperture between the unloading position (lower position) and other regulations (regulation no unloading), for example, by switching the discharge aperture at the position in the absence of discharge, when the next section reaches the unloading part, allowing you to unload groups of products, separated from adjacent groups of products, from the device to make condiments on one group at one time. Accordingly, the present invention allows, for example, to unload the product from the unloading part, while maintaining the number of products supplied in the input part.

Device for making seasonings according to claim 7 of the formula of the invention is the device according to claim 4 or claim 5, updat the further contains an inlet opening and means of rotation of the pipe. The inlet is provided by the presence on the peripheral surface of the pipe in the front part. The means of rotation of the pipe rotates around the axis. Additionally, the tool by rotation of the pipe controls the flow of product groups, selectively setting by rotating the pipe inlet in the top position for passing products and other provisions.

When the product is transported with the rotation of the screw, there is a possibility that the products will be separated spiral blade when it is sequential pass over the inlet, if it is constantly at the top (because the auger and the tube continues approximately in the horizontal direction, there is a possibility of falling asleep groups of products in a device for making condiments at any time through the inlet, if it is constantly at the top). If this occurs, a single group of products intended for placement in a separate section, unfortunately, will be divided blade and placed in two adjacent sections, disrupting the regulation of the size of the group of products in each section.

The device according to the invention prevents such erroneous submission of product groups with its division into several adjacent sections. This is achieved by switching the inlet between the feeding position (the upper position is s), and other provisions (non-supply), for example by switching the inlet position to the lack of supply, when the spiral blade of the next section closes the inlet.

Device for making condiments of claim 8 of the formula of the invention is the device according to claim 4 or claim 5, additionally containing a discharge orifice, and means to rotate the pipe. The discharge hole is provided on the peripheral surface of the pipe in the unloading part. An inlet opening is provided on the peripheral surface of the pipe in the front part. The means of rotation of the tube causes the tube to rotate around the axis. Additionally, the tool by rotation of the pipe at the same time manages the uploading and submission of product groups by selective installation of the discharge aperture in the bottom position for a rash of articles and other provisions, as well as selective installation of the inlet in the top position for passing products in other provisions.

This option simplifies management by rotation of the pipe for discharging the groups of products according to claim 6 of the claims and the supply control groups of products according to claim 7 claims through joint changes the position of the discharge and inlet openings (simultaneously).

Device for making seasoning according to claim 9 of the formula of the invention is a device on the ohms according to any one of claims 1 to 8, further includes a stirring device. This device mixes the product group and seasoning in the process of their transportation to the discharge part.

Under this option, the group of products supplied to the device to make condiments, mixed seasoning during transportation, thereby guaranteed seasoning product group. In this case, since the group of products and seasoning mix in each section in a state in which they are combined into a single group, every single product is guaranteed flavoured without breaking existing products or without new products or spices in this group.

Device for making condiments of claim 10 of the formula of the invention is a device according to any of claims 4-8 claims, further containing a means of mixing. This tool randomizes the group of products and seasoning in the process of transporting groups of products made with seasoning to the discharge part. The mixing tool includes a comb provided on the spiral blades. The tool performs mixing mixing of group products and condiments in the lower part of the pipe by impact on the group of products and seasoning specified by the comb during the rotation of the screw. The means of rotation of the screw reduces the rotation speed of the screw, when the comb performs at asanee impact.

This option provides a means of mixing for the variant in which the means for transporting includes auger and mixes product group and seasoning in a lower part of the section by exposing them to a comb provided on the spiral blade of the auger. As a result of this impact of the product over and achieve the same pripravljena products without any unevenness between different products, or even different areas of a certain product. In addition, since the mixing of group products and condiments is slow, achieves a more uniform introduction of spices without any unevenness. Additionally, the present invention avoids such problems as tossing products comb at high speeds and movement of products in the adjacent section.

Device for making spices in claim 11 of the formula of the invention is a device according to any one of p-8 claims, further containing a means of mixing. This tool randomizes the group of products and seasoning in the process of their transportation to the discharge part. The mixing tool includes a comb provided on the spiral blades. This tool performs mixing of group products and condiments in the lower part of the pipe by impact combs on the group of products and seasoning PR is the rotation of the screw. The means of rotation of the screw reduces the rotation speed of the screw, when the comb does this impact. The tool tube rotation changes the position of the discharge and inlet sinhronizovano with the decrease in the speed of screw rotation using the rotation of the screw, when the comb does the mixing.

This option also uses the tool of rotation of the pipe to change the position of the discharge and inlet by rotation of the pipe. In the present invention the position of the discharge and inlet openings is changed synchronously with the change of rotation speed of the auger to perform mixing. As a result, it is enough to change the position of the discharge and inlet openings with low speed (rotating pipe). You can easily change the direction of rotation of the pipe on the opposite, and you can also start the rotation is stopped pipes with little effort.

The weighing device is in the process prior to depositing the seasoning in product group device for making condiments, and supplies the weighted products to the device to make the seasoning.

In this embodiment, the product to make condiments device according to the invention pre-weighed weighing device. Accordingly, the dressing does not stick to the weighing device, facilitating cleaning. In addition, by changing the form of products and condiments you can exclude such an operation, as the removal of spices stuck to the weighing device during manufacture of the previous products. In particular, if the weighing device is large, a unit equipped with a variety of bins and trays, the beneficial effect of minimizing or exceptions specified cleanup operation is particularly significant.

The system of food production on p formula of the invention is a system for p, in which the means for supplying seasoning delivers the seasoning in a group of products based on the weight of the products of the weighing device. For example, the means for supplying seasoning regulates the amount of seasonings, based on the weight data items.

In this embodiment, the seasoning on the W in number, the appropriate number of items in the group submitted to the device for making condiments; if the number of products in this group is large, then the amount of seasoning is great, and if the number of products in this group is small, then, accordingly, the amount of seasoning is also small. Thus, supported a predetermined optimum value and each individual product in each group or each partition seasoned properly.

The system of food production on p formula of the invention is a system for p, optionally containing a packing device. This device is in the process carried out after depositing the seasoning in product device for making condiments, and packs the products unloaded from the device to make condiments. In addition, the weighing device determines the weight of the products in one packaging, parts of the product weight for a package in multiple product groups and supplies them to the device to make condiments.

DESCRIPTION of the WEIGHING DEVICE

The weighing device 10 is well known combined device for weighing. Namely, it includes a feeding mechanism that is similar to belt conveyor, bucket conveyor (not shown), which feeds many of the products on the distribution table 11, where products are distributed and served in a set of storage bins 13...13 many of the feeding devices 12...12, and then weighed many of the weighing hoppers 14...14. Next, each weighing result is used in calculations, after which the products are discharged from the weighing hoppers 14...14, the respective optimal combinations and going in a synchronized hopper 16 to the tray 15. At the right moment synchronized hopper 16 is opened (for example, at the time, during which, as described earlier, only the first section #1 device 20 to make seasonings communicates with the inlet port And located in the upper position of falling asleep) and the product is filled into the device 20 to make the seasonings on the receiving tray 17. The weighing device 10 measures the weight of a packaging and packing device 30 (e.g., net weight 100 grams) and delivers the goods with a weight of one package in the device 20 to make the seasonings in a separate group of products.

A BRIEF DESCRIPTION of the mouth of THE STS MAKE SEASONINGS

The device 20 to make condiments includes screw 23, having a spiral vane 21 and the shaft 22 of the screw; and a pipe 24, in which is mounted a screw 23. Auger 23 and the tube 24 continues horizontally. The front end part of the pipe 24 (relative to the direction of flow of the product) is located directly below the bin 17 and corresponds to the input part for the products. The rear end part of the pipe 24 (relative to the direction of flow of the products) is located directly above the packing device 30 and corresponds to a discharge part for discharging the products.

The device 20 to make the seasoning further comprises means 40 for filing seasonings. The tool 40 supply of spices includes nozzles 41, 42 located in the Central part of the tube 24 in the longitudinal direction. The nozzles 41, 42 are connected with an air compressor 44 through channel 43. Powdered seasoning stored in the tank 45, measured by a screw feeder 46 and is introduced through the channel 43. Powdered seasoning entered so fond of compressed air and sprayed from nozzles 41, 42 in the pipe 24.

DESCRIPTION PACKAGING UNIT

Packing device 30 is a well-known vertical machine that produces packaging cushion type. In other words, it makes the bag by folding the strip packing is of material (not shown) in tubular form around a vertically positioned pipe 33 forming device 32 simultaneously with the pulling strip down using straps 34, 34, forms a longitudinal weld seam device 35 of the longitudinal weld, and then forms a transverse weld seam device 36 of the transverse welding. Then the space between adjacent transverse joints, i.e. the inner part of the bag, is filled with a group of products made with spices, poured from the device 20 to make the seasonings through the receiving tray 31 into the tube 33, thus completing the manufacture of the product (in this example, the bag filled with snack).

DETAILED description of the DEVICE FOR MAKING CONDIMENTS

The device 20 to make condiments, shown in enlarged view in figure 2, is installed, for example, on the platform 20A. The pipe 24 is installed with the possibility of free rotation around the shaft on a pair of supporting elements 25, 25. The supporting elements 25 are designed so that they support tube 24 using rollers 25A...25A, as shown in Figure 3. Cross-section of the inner peripheral surface of the pipe 24, which is in sliding contact spiral vane 21 and the outer peripheral surfaces which are in contact with the rotating rollers 25A are round. The pipe 24 is made of polymer with high transparency (for example, acrylic plastic).

As shown in figure 2, the helical blade 21 in this embodiment has a few turns in a spiral (eight times in the example shown in F. the Data2), all the expressions with the same step. As a result, the helical blade 21 provides many partitions arranged horizontally inside the pipe 24, and the set of partitions of adjacent partitions and arranged horizontally. Of course, the helical blade 21 just screw divides the space inside the tube 24. Every part of the space, separated helical blade 21 is not closed, but is associated with adjacent areas of the spiral. However, as the group of products and seasoning going on the inside bottom of the pipe 24, the helical blade 21 separates the group of products and seasoning at least in part below the shaft 22 of the screw so that the group of products and seasonings can't move back and forth in the related section. Therefore, within this spiral space part, which is located below the shaft 22 of the screw, can be used as a partition containing a group of products with seasoning and separates it from other groups of products and seasonings. In this case it is better to avoid placing in sections product group in number, fill the section above the shaft 22 of the screw, as products that are above the shaft 22 of the screw will pass through the helical space and, unfortunately, to move in adjacent sections (both forward and backward relative to the direction of flow of the product).

Section and appear and disappear at both ends of the spiral blades 21. For example, as shown in figure 2, the end part of the spiral blade 21 from the upper side relative to the flow of products is located below the shaft 22 of the screw and, therefore, the section is created in the rear end part of the spiral blades 21 (relative to the direction of flow of the products). However, when the rear end part of the spiral blade 21 is located above the shaft 22 of the screw, this part of the spiral blade 21 and the partition is not created. When the screw 23 is rotated 180°, the situation reverses. In the present embodiment of the invention recurring sections marked positions, counting from the rear in the direction of flow of the products: the first section (#1), the second section (#2),..., and the sixth section (#6) (Fig).

The first section is the section in which the first is the group of products in the device 20 to make the seasonings from the weighing device 10 through the output tray 17. On the peripheral surface of the pipe 24 has an inlet And in the field opposite the receiving tray 17, i.e. in the input part. As shown in figure 4, the inlet And is not located directly above the shaft 22 of the screw at the time of filing products, and offset to the side of the first section. In addition, the rear end part of the receiving tray 17 is not located directly above the shaft 22 of the screw, and offset to the side of the first CE is tion. Furthermore, the receiving tray 17 is inclined to the side of the first section. Thus, the group X products supplied from the weighing device 10 through the receiving tray 17, guaranteed to fit in the first section, as shown by the arrow AR4 and does not penetrate into the spiral space, located in front of the stream of products. The receiving tray 17 is attached to the platform 20A of the fixing element or the like (not shown).

In the third section and the fifth section of the nozzles 41, 42 are served powdered seasonings. End portion of the nozzles 41, 42 are installed in the sealing elements 24A, 24A, located vertically on the peripheral surface of the pipe 24, as shown in Figure 5. The nozzles 41, 42 are thus attached to the pipe 24. The nozzles 41, 42 are additionally supported by a bracket (not shown), the reinforcing support. As shown by the arrow AR5, the nozzles 41, 42 in the present embodiment, spray powder seasoning, directing a large part in the direction of the area closer to the inner peripheral surface of the pipe 24 than to the shaft 22 of the screw. The nozzles 41, 42 is sprayed powdered seasoning in an amount corresponding to the size of the group of products that are placed separately in each section (in this example, it corresponds to the size of one pack of the packaging device 30). Thus, the feed speed and soothes the tion products and seasonings in each section are specified in optimal proportions. In addition, since the size of one packing packing device 30 is set in advance, and the amount of powdered seasonings, proportional to the number of products is a preset value.

The sixth section is the section in which the group of products with seasoning is unloaded from the device 20 to make the seasoning in the packaging device 30. The discharge hole is provided on the peripheral surface of the pipe 24 in the region opposite the receiving tray 31 of the wrapping unit 30, i.e. in the unloading part. As shown in Fig.6, the discharge hole In the unloading of the goods is located directly underneath the shaft 22 of the screw. In addition, the upper end part of the receiving tray 31 is also located directly underneath the shaft 22 of the screw. Thus, a bunch of products located in the lower part of the inner side of the tube 24 forms a single group X products and unloaded from the device 20 to make the seasonings in the packing device 30 in a short period of time.

As shown in figure 2, two motors 26, 27 are provided on one end of the pipe 24 (on the back end in the example shown in figure 2). The first motor 26 rotates the auger 23. The output shaft of the motor 26 is directly connected with the shaft 22 of the screw. The rotation of the first motor 26 and the screw 23 in a clockwise direction, as shown in figure 2 with the rear (downstream side (the direction AR1 figure 3-6), causes the rotation of the helical blade 21 in the same direction AR1, moves together all sections (#1 - #6) from the rear flow side to the front side and transports a group of products and seasoning, placed in each section, from the input part with the hole And toward the discharge portion with an aperture Century

The second motor 27 rotates the pipe 24. Gear 27A mounted on the output shaft of the motor 27, is coupled with a toothed wheel 27b of larger diameter mounted on the outer peripheral surface of the pipe 24. Rotation in normal and reverse directions of the second motor 27 rotates the pipe 24 with the inlet and discharge opening In the clockwise (in the direction AR2 in Figure 3-6) or counterclockwise (in the direction of AR3 in Figure 3-6), as shown in the front (on the stream).

As shown in figure 2, the spiral blades 21 in the sections from the third through the fifth provided and installed comb (agitating member) 28. Comb 28 is moved together with the helical blade 21 as a single node and performs a rotation around the shaft 22 during the rotation of the screw 23. As a result, when the comb 28 passes under the shaft 22 of the screw, she interacts with the group of products and spices in the bottom of the sections with the third (#3) on the fifth (#5) inside the tube 24. In addition, as shown by the solid line in Figure 5, the group's products and seasoning are pushed rowed ncoi up along the inner peripheral surface of the pipe 24 and thus mixed. The group's products are distributed in a thin layer on the inner peripheral surface so that each individual product included in the group's products is on the surface and well mixed with seasonings. As a result, each individual product evenly flavoured without any deviations.

The OPERATION of the DEVICE FOR MAKING CONDIMENTS

Below is illustrated the operation of the device 20 to make the seasonings with reference to Fig.7 and Fig. 7, the horizontal axis is time, and indicates the value of the angle of rotation of the screw 23. For convenience in describing the position in which the comb 28 is located directly underneath the shaft 22 of the screw, is taken as 0° (the position shown by the solid line in Figure 5). Forward from 0° the horizontal axis represents the rotation angle θ in the direction AR1. As follows from this figure, the interval from 0° 360° represents one turn of the screw, in which each section (#1 - #6) advances one step. In addition, the length of the horizontal axis and the angle θ turn of the screw are not proportional, but the length of the horizontal axis and time proportional (proportional).

First, the screw 23 rotates continuously in the direction AR1. However, there are moments in which the speed of rotation during one rotation (transport speed) is high, and the moments when it is I who is low. Namely, the rotation speed of the screw 23 is reduced, when the comb 28 acts upon a group of products. Thus, the mixing operation is always performed slowly and group X products evenly flavoured without any deviations. Additionally, it allows to prevent the product was captured, broken, crumbled, etc. comb 28. In the present invention the speed of rotation of the screw 23 is reduced in the range of 0°-120° the angle of rotation of the auger. The only reason for reducing the speed of rotation of the dies 28 until it will not rise above the shaft 22 of the screw (up to 120°), is to prevent the upward stroke of the comb 28 by products and unwanted transfers of products through the helical space in the adjacent section. However, the installation period, during which the speed of rotation of the screw 23 is reduced, can respectively change depending on group size X products, etc. for Example, may reduce the speed of rotation from the point at which the angle of rotation of the auger is about -60° (300°), thus softening the blow with the initial contact of the dies 28 with the group's products.

On Fig shows a scheme of work for one rotation of the screw 23, i.e. the period of time for each section (#1 - #6) advances one step. Diagrams (a), (b), (c) and (d) on the same Fig. 8 image is jut moments in which the angle of rotation of the auger is 0°about 45°about 120° and about 360°, respectively. On Fig(a) the inlet And at the top (at this time the hole And is in a state of sleep products, shown in Figure 4). In addition, the discharge opening In the bottom (at this time, the hole is in position rash products shown in Fig.6). However, Fig(a) the filing group (X1) products in the first section (#1) through the inlet And is already completed and unloading groups of products made by the seasoning of the sixth (#6) section through the discharge hole has also been completed.

At this point the inlet And is located between the upper parts of the spiral blades 21 that separates the front part and the rear part (in the direction of flow of the products) of the first section (#1), and does not act on the upper part of the helical blade 21 with either the rear or from the front side (in the direction of flow of the products). In other words, we can say that the inlet And is connected only with the first section. Consequently, the group's products from the output tray 17 of the weighing device 10 is not transmitted through the helical blade 21 and not divided in several sections. Additionally, the discharge opening In the discharge also is located between the lower parts of the helical blade 21, which separates the PE enyu part and the rear part of the sixth section (#6) and does not act on the lower part of the helical blade 21 with no back, neither from the front side. Preferably the discharge opening is not at least from the rear. In other words, although the discharge hole is communicated with the sixth section, we can say that it is not communicating with the fifth section. Therefore, only the group X6 products will be discharged into the receiving tray 31 of the device 30 of the packaging without mixing with a group of X5 in the fifth section.

In the state shown in Fig. 8(a), the groups X1-X5 in sections with the first (#1) on the fifth (#5) is separated from other groups of products and transported to the front stream side of the device. However, the sixth section is moving empty even further forward for unloading part. When the angle of rotation of the auger is 0°begins feeding powdered spices from the nozzles 41, 42. As shown in Fig.7, the supply of seasonings lasts as long as the angle of rotation of the auger will not be about 60°.

In addition, when the angle of rotation of the auger is 0°as in the state shown in Fig 8.(a), the pipe 24 starts to rotate in the direction AR2. As shown in Fig.7. this rotation continues until the angle of rotation of the auger reaches 120°. Additionally, the speed of rotation of the pipe 24 at this point is the same as the speed of rotation of the screw 23 (i.e. low). Namely, the screw 23 and the pipe 24 jointly rotate with the same speed in one the m direction AR1, AR2, i.e. synchronized by the angle of rotation of the auger from 0-120°. As a result, the inlet And the discharge hole and the nozzles 41, 42, combined with the pipe 24, are slowly moving in the direction AR2, as shown in Fig(b) and (C). At this point, the comb 28, combined with the screw 23, is also moving in the direction AR1. On Fig(b) and (C) the inlet and the nozzles 41, 42 has moved to the opposite side of the pipe 24 and is not visible. For clarity, the position of the inlet And, when the rotation angle of the screw is about 45°shown with diagonal lines in figure 4. Additionally, the position of the discharge openings when the rotation angle of the screw is about 120°shown with diagonal lines in Fig.6. In addition, the position of the manifold valve 28, shown in dotted lines in Figure 5, is a position in which the angle of rotation of the auger is about 90°and arrow AR5' shows the direction of the spray powder seasoning nozzles 41, 42, when the rotation angle of the screw is about 30°.

As shown in Fig and 2, the rear edge relative to the flow side (the side of the fifth section of the discharge aperture In runs diagonally along the line of the spiral blades 21, as in the sixth section is completely missing the bottom due to its alignment with the discharge opening, and thus the whole group is 6 products are guaranteed to be unloaded from the sixth section. In this situation it does not matter, even if the front edge downstream of the discharge openings In stands on the spiral blades 21. In addition, the discharge hole is moved synchronously with the same speed and in the same direction as the helical blade 21, and the result is kept constant and the relative position between the discharge hole and the spiral blade 21 shown in Fig(a), even Fig(b) and (C). In other words, even while the discharge hole is moved in the direction of AR2 in the range of the angle of rotation of the auger 0-120°discharge hole is not beyond the helical blade 21 with its rear flow side and not reported from the fifth section. Therefore, as shown in Fig(b) and (C), even if the fifth section (#5) suitable to the discharge side of the device (above the receiving tray 31 of the wrapping unit 30), the group X5 products in the fifth section (indicated by symbol (F) at this time is not unloaded.

Then, when the angle of rotation of the auger is within 120-360°the speed of rotation of the screw 23 is returned to the normal (high) speed transportation, as shown in Fig.7. On the other hand, the pipe 24 starts to rotate at high speed in the reverse direction AR3 when the angle of rotation of the auger reaches 120°and returns to the state shown in Fig(a), when the and the angle of rotation of the screw is approximately 220-230° . In other words, the distance that the tube 24 is rotated in the direction AR2 is equal to the distance which the pipe 24 is rotated in the direction of the AR3. As a result, the inlet And returns to the upper position sleep products, the discharge hole In the returns to the lower position rash products, and the nozzles 41, 42 are returned to the upright position. Then the tube 24 remains stationary as long as the angle of rotation of the auger reaches 360° (i.e. before the beginning of a new cycle). The position shown in Fig(a), during such a stop, additionally, the positions shown in Fig(d), Figure 2 and Figure 4-6) is designated as the position of the turn (rotation) of the pipe.

When the tube 24 is returned in the switching position of the screw 23 has yet to complete one rotation. Therefore, in the input portion of the device, the rear part of the spiral blades 21 (the wall with the rear side of the first section) passes the inlet And at the discharge part of the front part of the spiral blades 21 (the partition between the fifth and sixth sections) passes the discharge hole of the Century, Therefore, in respect of the filing of the group's products, if the group's products will be sleeping at this time of the weighing device 10 in the device 20 to make the seasoning, then the entire quantity of the products of group X will not fit entirely in the first section following the cycle, but some of the undesirable products is mixed with the first section of the previous cycle (the second section of the next cycle). Further, when the tube 24 is returned to the position of the inclusion, submission of the group's products from the weighing device 10 is suspended. As shown in Fig(d), directly before the auger 23 will complete approximately one turn, synchronized hopper 16 of the weighing device 10 is opened, synchronized to fill the partition, which should be the first section (#1) in the next cycle (Fig.7). In this state, shown in Fig(d), the inlet And located in the upper position of sleep, is located between the front and rear walls of the first section #1, as Fig(a).

On the other hand, in relation to the discharge of the group's products made with seasoning, the following object unloading (F) already reaches the discharge openings of the discharge starts from the moment when the tube 24 is returned to position on (referring to Fig.7). Download group F products made with seasoning lasts as long as not fully formed sixth section (#6) (until the angle of rotation of the auger reaches 360°). However, the speed of rotation of the screw 23 during this interval returned to normal speed, transport, i.e. the transport speed of the group's products took the scarfing. In addition, the discharge opening In the bottom position rash widely open to all sixth section and the whole group F products poured without delay as a separate group in the packing device 30 in a relatively short period of time.

Therefore, during the period of time until the pipe 24 is stopped in the position on (when the angle of rotation of the screw is approximately between 220-230° 360°), the inlet And is in a state of sleep products, and the discharge hole is in position rash products. On the contrary, during the period of time until the pipe 24 is rotated in the direction AR2 or in the direction of AR3, the inlet And is in a state of lack of supply, and the discharge hole is in position in the absence of discharge. Thus, submission (receiving) group X products before making condiments and unloading of the group's products after making condiments, simultaneously controlled by simultaneous movement of the inlet and discharge openings, respectively, the rear and front ends of the device.

In addition, having in mind the possibility of reducing the load of the second motor 27 or simplify the control of the second motor 27 is an approach, in which the return pipe 24 in the position of the inclusions can be site is titanium return pipe 24 by increasing speed in the direction AR2, without changing the rotation in the reverse direction AR3. In other words, the pipe 24 is rotated a full spin in one direction AR2, as the screw 23. However, in this embodiment, a long, thin nozzles 41, 42 are provided right on the peripheral surface of the pipe 24 and continue in the radial direction. Accordingly, in fact, continued rotation of the tube 24 in the same direction is problematic because it requires a lot of space around the device 20 to make the seasonings, and there is the additional possibility that the channel 43 between the nozzles 41, 42 and an air compressor 44 may swing back and forth and experience heavy loads. However, if, for example, a nozzle for depositing the seasoning is embedded in the peripheral surface of the shaft 22 of the screw, belonging to the third and fourth sections, it is no longer necessary in a long, thin nozzles 41, 42, vertically on the peripheral surface of the pipe 24, the above space requirements are reduced and restrictions on channel 43 is also reduced. Also it becomes possible to continue the rotation of the tube 24 in the direction AR2.

FEATURES of THIS VARIANT EXECUTION

Here are the features of this variant of the invention. First, the device 20 to make the seasoning on this version of the Britania transports products submitted from the weighing device 10 from the input part to the discharge part in the process of making condiments products. Namely, the device 20 to make seasonings makes a seasoning in group X products, measured weighing device 10, during its transportation to the packing device 30, which is a reasonable approach without any loss.

In addition, the group of products supplied in the input part, and seasoning, served means 40 filing seasonings, are grouped together in the form of separate groups X and transported to the unloading part separately and in isolation from other groups of products. Therefore, products and seasoning not come out of the group X in the device to make condiments, even partially, until they are transported, and new products and spices are not added to the group X. Therefore, the period of the products inside the device 20 to make condiments, i.e. the duration of the process of making seasonings (the time of contact of the products with seasonings), is the same for each product in a separate group of products, and the proportion between products and seasoning supported in group X on the same level with the flow and mixing. Accordingly, each and every individual product can be evenly flavored without making too big or too small amount of seasoning. For example, the each individual product can be evenly seasoned in optimal proportions, if the products and seasoning initially served in the group specified in the optimum ratio. Moreover, it is ensured regardless of the sequence of supply of products and seasonings in a group.

In addition, since the floating partitions are used to separate and transport each group of products, the device for making condiments simplified. In other words, the product is separated and placed in sections, separated by partitions, and the partition is moved by moving the partitions, thus conveying the group's products in the discharge portion separated from the other. In other words, partitions simultaneously perform two functions - separation and transport.

In addition, a number of spices, served medium 40 filing seasonings may vary according to group size X products by means of the weighing device 10, and not be a constant, predetermined value, that is, seasonings served more when products are served more, and seasonings served less when products served less. In this case, a given optimal proportion is maintained constantly and taste precisely regulated for each group of products in each section and for each product.

In addition, since the rotation of the screw 23 causes movement of partitions, set pereg rodoc and the set of sections are moved together in the axial direction only due to the rotation of the screw 23 around the axis inside the pipe 24. In addition, all sections are secured together through the use of a single node of a screw 23 and pipe 24 and, respectively, simultaneously and in parallel can be transported several groups X1-X6 products separately placed in each section to the discharge part, one after the other. In this embodiment, the set of partitions, respectively, separated by a spiral blade 21, sequentially moves from the inlet portion to the discharge portion when using the conveyor type. For each individual partition does not require a separate means of transportation; all that is necessary is to ensure that rotation of one of the screw 23, so design accordingly simplified.

In addition, since the screw 23 and the pipe 24, which are relatively long objects continue in the horizontal rather than the vertical direction, the height of the device 20 to make seasonings remains small. In addition, the group's products are supplied to the device to make seasonings, spread a thin layer in the horizontal direction and does not form dense aggregations, seasoning sufficiently in contact with the products in the group's products, and thus achieved a satisfactory pripravljena.

In addition, in this embodiment has a discharge opening In the pipe 24 and the pipe is 24 rotates, controlling the unloading of a group of products made with seasoning, by changing the position of the discharge openings In, for example, performing the same function as a synchronized bunker. In addition, since such synchronized hopper forms a single unit with the device 20 to make seasonings, this device becomes more compact than in the case of a separately provided regular synchronized hopper (e.g., synchronized hopper 16 of the weighing device 10).

In the same way, by having the inlet And the pipe 24 and the rotation of the pipe 24 is provided by the supply control groups of products in a device for making condiments by changing the position of the inlet of A. Therefore, are excluded from such problems as, for example, the filing of a group of articles from the weighing device 10, when the inlet And passes through the partition (spiral vane 21), thus mistakenly feeding the product into the device 20 to make the seasonings in junk time. As shown by the diagonal line in figure 4, according to the invention the upper part of the pipe 24 is blocked when the inlet And is in a position of lack of supply, thus eliminating the problems of undesirable feed products in the device 20 to make condiments, even if, for example, at this point the product is usapayday from the output tray 17.

In addition, simultaneous control of feeding and unloading of the goods by turning the tube 24 allows to avoid unnecessary complications control the rotation of the pipe 24.

In addition, the group's products in the device 20 to make the seasoning, mixed with seasoning in the process of transportation, reliable seasoning product group. In this case, since the product and seasoning mix in each section in the state in which they are combined in a separate group X, every single product is firmly flavoured without breaking existing products or introduce new products in this group.

In this case, since the group of products and seasoning, located in the lower part of the section, mixed comb 28, items are reversed and results in an even introducing seasoning without any deviations when comparing individual products when comparing different areas of a certain product.

Additionally, since a change in the position of the holes And, synchronized with decreasing speed of rotation of the screw 23 in the implementation of mixing, it allows you to change the position of the holes And, at low speed (the rotation of the tube 24 in the direction AR2), and the rotation is stopped pipe 24 in the direction AR2 may be started with little effort.

In addition, since the pipe 24 is made transparent (for example, as delovogo plastic), you can watch the situation inside the pipe 24 or the device 20 to make condiments. The result can determine the current processing status and you can find out whether the treatment correctly or has failed. In addition, if the supply of the product groups and supply seasonings are made by hand, when the supply of products and seasonings can visually observe the mutual position of the screw 23, the spiral blades 21, each partition #1 - #6, etc.

On the other hand, because the weighing device 10 is provided in front (downstream) device 20 to make dressings and packing device 30 is provided after (downstream) of the device to make the spices, as the distinctive features of the whole system of production is that the spices do not stick to the weighing device 10, thus reducing cleanup costs. In addition, when changing the type of product and seasonings you can eliminate the cost of removing the spices stuck to the weighing device 10 during production of the previous product. In particular, if the weighing device 10 is large, the combined device equipped with multiple bins 13, 14, 16 and trays 15, 17, the benefits of reduction or exclusion of the cleanup costs will be significant.

The SECOND VARIANT of the INVENTION

The first is Ariant carries out the processing of group products in one package, measured weighing device 10 in the form of a separate group. In other words, the entire volume of the group's products, measured weighing device 10 (in one package), is served in a separate section of the device 20 to make condiments, transported, seasoned and moved to the packing device 30. On the contrary, in the second embodiment of the invention, the group of products in one package, measured weighing device 10, purposefully divided into several subgroups, and such separated subgroups products are presented in separate groups in the partition device 20 to make condiments, transported, seasoned and placed in a packing device 30. However, as described below, because you want to combine several sub-groups into a single group (one package) when it is moving in the packing device 30, the rotation of the tube 24 (controls the separation of the supply and discharge of product groups) runs all the time when it takes several divided sections, and not by the passage of each individual partition.

Figure 9 shows the weighing device 10 used in the second embodiment of the invention. A distinctive feature of this option is that the output tray is an inner and outer double structure 15A, 15b (two tray structure). In the first embodiment, the one is under includes articles on the entire volume of a single package and, therefore, you want every time to perform the separation of the discharge time when the achievement of separate discharge openings. On the contrary, in the second embodiment, since the product on the volume of a single package split and served in several sections, this option performs the separation of the discharge on-time every time are two sections, for example, if the product is separated and fed into two sections. Additionally, if one section is the volume of one packaging, the volume of product groups in this section may be identified, for example, as the weight of the produced packaging (in other words, it provides a means of determining the size of the group of products). However, when the separation and feed in a few sections, the size of the group of products supplied in the appropriate section, some way must be determined by different methods. In the second embodiment is used for this purpose weighing device having two tray design, as shown in Fig.9. Trays 15A, 15b, respectively, equipped with synchronized hoppers 16A, 16b, each of which pours products in total output tray 17. The weighing hopper 14 has two gates, each of which is selectively opened when the discharge products. For example, if you open the inner gate 14a, items can be collected in one of sinhronizovan the x bins 16A, using an internal collecting tray 15A. On the contrary, if you open the outer gate 14b, the product can be collected in another synchronized hopper 16b, using an external collecting tray 15b.

The weighing device 10 selects the combination forming the weight of a package (for example, 100 grams) and, from this combination generates two combinations weighing 50 grams. In future articles in the weighing hoppers 14, according to one 50-gram combinations, unloaded, or internal or external collecting tray, 15A or 15b, and articles in the weighing hoppers 14 corresponding to the other 50-gram combinations are offloaded to another collecting tray, 15b or 15A. Further, in each of two consecutive sections of the device 20 to make the seasoning served 50-gram weighted product groups. The tool 40 supply of seasonings gives seasonings in each section in an amount corresponding to 50-gram group of products, rather than 100-gram group of products. Based on the foregoing, the second embodiment of provides a means of determining the size of the group of products.

In this case, the group's products is divided into small subgroups, more suitable for making condiments and mixed with the seasoning. Additionally, since the size of one group of products, separated and transported by the device 20 to make the Oia seasonings, may be small, not limited to a weight of one pack of the packaging device 30, the product can satisfactorily mixed and probavlyatsya small subgroups, even if, for example, the weight per packing packing device 30 is large.

In addition, since the present system of production of the product is configured in such a way that the packing is done immediately after making seasonings, unloading of goods from the device 20 to make condiments must be performed so that one group of products weight per package would be uploaded as a separate cluster. In addition, between clusters should contain a large interval (separation or distinction). Otherwise, the product may be captured in a horizontal welds in the packaging device 30. In addition, when the discharge flavored products from the device 20 to make the seasonings in the packing device 30 is separated, for example, in the form of two sub-products, as described above, the two split groups of products are unloaded sequentially, and then enter the time interval separating the current section and the head section, the following amount of products in one package. Thus, supported the weight of the products in one package, measured weighing device 10, and unloaded the packaging device 30. Additionally, the time interval between adjacent volumes on separate packaging prevents products in the transverse weld seam in the packaging device 30.

The THIRD embodiment of the

In the first embodiment, it is also possible to electrically charge at least the group's products or seasoning and ensure the adherence of the seasoning to the group X products using this electrostatic function. The process of the season thus completed in a short period of time and pripravljena is more evenly without any deviations. Additionally decreases the number of remaining, not adhering to products seasonings (applying seasoning occurs with high efficiency). However, if the electric charge is reported as the group's products and seasoning, these charges should have a different polarity.

Figure 10 shows the tool 50 electric loader, which is suitable for use in the third embodiment of the invention. The tool 50 electric loader posted by synchronized between the hopper 16 and the receiving tray 17 of the weighing device 10 and has two opposite electrodes 51, 52, entered in the passage for the fall of the weighted group X products. One electrode 51 is connected to a high voltage source 53, and the other electrode grounded, yet the way forming space with an electric field between the electrodes 51, 52. The group's products discharged from the synchronized hopper 16, passes through the space with an electric field during the fall and as a result becomes electrically charged with a given polarity. Electrically charged seasoning is obtained, for example, using such tools electric loader in the passage for supplying spices (channel 43 and the like) in the tool 40 supply of seasonings.

Thus, when at least either the group's products, or the seasoning reported electric charge, it is preferable that the pipe 24 has been filled, i.e. electrical insulator. The result is prevented adhesion of electrically charged group's products and seasonings to the pipe 24 and the group's products and seasonings, therefore, well-distributed, satisfactory contact and mixed with each other. Additionally, the seasoning is not going in clumps and does not accumulate on the inner peripheral surface of the pipe 24, which prevents problems such as the formation of lumps spices, locally adhered to the product.

In this case, it is also possible to supply pipe 24 is grounded metal plate 61 (e.g., steel) near the lower part of the outer peripheral surface of the pipe, as shown in Figure 10. Electrically C is connected seasoning actively attracted to the metal plate 61 to concentrate on the lower part of the tube 24. In this case, the seasoning adheres well to the group's products, which tend to come thanks to its weight in the lower part of the tube 24, and seasoning, therefore, be used without any loss.

The FOURTH embodiment of the

As shown in figure 11 is increased, there are cases when powdered seasoning S stored in the tank 45 according to the first variant implementation, aglomerated due to pressure, humidity, etc. In this case, faults may occur in the supply due to clumping of the seasoning inside the tank 45. To prevent agglomeration, solidification and clumping of the powder seasoning can be continuously shake the tank 45, using the vibrator. However, this does not completely solve the problem, and the vibration force in turn will create problems with noise.

As shown in figure 11, the bottom surface of the tank 45 includes a sieve 45A, and a sieve of 45 ° or the body of the tank 45, and or housing 45 and the sieve 45A at the same time, make back-and-forth or circular motion, as shown by the arrow Y. In this case, the seasoning in the tank 45, which is in a powdery state, passes through the cell 45A under its own weight. Place Z contact the hull of the tank 45 and bolts 45A performs the function of a mill, crushing and pulverizing the cured seasoning in reserves is the Varos 45. In any case prevents clumping and motor-driven screw 46a feeder 46 satisfactorily retrieves the specified number of seasonings S. in Addition, the reciprocating or circular motion screens 45A and the hull of the tank 45 provides the effect, even if this movement is not performed intensively, thus avoiding the problems associated with noise.

In addition, means for introducing spices 540, 550, respectively, shall submit the same seasonings and also Pets accordingly, the supply of different seasonings. In the first case, for example, to increase the reliability of the season, in the latter case you can about what especial, for example, pripravljena with a complex taste.

A BRIEF DESCRIPTION of the PACKAGING DEVICE

Packing device 530 may be, for example, a well-known vertical device for the formation of packaging cushion type, which stretches down the packing material in the form of a tape (not shown), at the same time giving it the form of a pipe formulateed 532 on the periphery of the ongoing vertical pipe 533, and weld the packaging material in the longitudinal and transverse directions, thus forming a bag. Further, the bag through the receiving tray 531 and pipe 533 is populated by a group of seasoned products discharged from the device 520 to make condiments, thereby obtaining the final product (in this embodiment, the bag filled with snack).

DETAILED description of the DEVICE FOR MAKING CONDIMENTS

As shown in Fig in the enlarged view, the device 520 to make seasonings installed on the platform 500. The rear (downstream) part of the device 520 to make condiments provided with inlet And to supply products and input tray a, components of the infeed product groups. Front (downstream) part of the device 520 to make condiments provided with a discharge hole for discharging the products and the tray unloading 520b, constituting a discharge unit group of products.

Screw 521 has a spiral vane is A and shaft B screw and rotates in the direction of the AR14, and AR15 around the shaft V auger with motor 525 (arrow AR14 shows normal rotation, and the arrow AR15 indicates reverse rotation). Spiral vane A makes several spiral turns (5½ in this example) with the same step. Spiral vane A several forms arranged horizontally partitions the inside of the tube 522. Partitions divide the space inside the tube 522 and restrict several sections #11 - #15 (five in the present example), arranged horizontally. Spiral vane A spiral divides the space inside the tube 522, and each section #11 - #15 is not closed, but mutually and spiral associated with other sections. However, as the group of products and seasoning gather in the lower part of the inside of the tube 522, group products and seasoning in the lower part of the shaft V auger separated spiral blade A and can't move from this area back and forth in the related field. Therefore, inside the spiral space, the part located below the shaft V screw, can be used as a partition containing a group of products and seasoning and separating them from other groups of products and condiments.

If the engine 525 rotates the screw 521 in the direction of the arrow AR14 (normal rotation), all section #11 - #15 move together from the rear (downstream) side to the plumage is it (downstream) side (movement in the direction of the discharge aperture In), and groups of products placed in sections #11 - #15, is transported from the inlet And to the discharge hole of the Century, on the Contrary, if the engine 525 rotates the screw 521 in the direction of the arrow AR15 (reverse rotation), all section #11 - #15 move together from the front side to the rear side (movement in the direction of the inlet (A), and groups of products placed in sections #11 - #15, is returned to the inlet of A.

The first section #11 is the section in which first served the group of articles from the weighing device 510 in the device 520 to make the seasonings through the input tray a and the inlet (section feed products). As shown in Fig, the lower end part of the input tray a is not directly above the shaft W auger, but slightly offset from the shaft V auger. This is done because the group's products must be in the first section #11, as shown by the arrow AR11', but must not enter the second section of #12 with the front (downstream) side (see Fig).

The second section #12 and the fourth section #14 are sections in which the above-described nozzles 546, 556 serves powdered seasoning (feeding section seasoning). In addition, Fig shows the state in which the nozzles 546, 556 do not fully cover the second section #12 and the fourth section #14 (the state in which the rotation angle of the screw 521, described below, which is 0° ). When the #11 - #15 are moved from this point forward, to the front (downstream) side, the second section #12 and the fourth section #14 will be fully covered by the spray 546, 556, and powdered seasoning sprayed from nozzles 546, 556, be guaranteed to go to the second section of #12 and the fourth section #14.

As shown in Fig, sprayers 546, 556 are provided right on the peripheral surface of the pipe 522 and supported by the brackets and the like (not shown). Sprayers 546, 556 sprayed powdered seasoning as directed on the area closer to the inner peripheral surface of the pipe 522 (arrow AR16). Sprayers 546, 556 spray amount of powder seasoning, corresponding to the size of the group of products placed separately in each section, and the ratio of the number of products and seasonings in each partition is maintained in optimal proportions given.

The fifth section #15 is a section in which seasoned group of products unloaded from the device 520 to make the seasonings in the packing device 530 through the discharge opening In the tray, 520b (section unloading devices). As shown in Fig, the discharge hole is located directly underneath the shaft V auger. Thus, all group X-flavoured products, gathered in the lower part of the inside of the tube 522, quickly unloads the I of the device 520 to make the seasonings in the packing device 530.

Mixing plate 523...523 provided and installed between the partitions formed by the spiral blade A, in sections with the second #12 on the fourth #14 (in this example, the third section #13 is a section of the mixing). Mixing plate 523 is used for mixing the group's products and seasonings, located in each of the sections with the second #12 on the fourth #14. Mixing plate 523 works as a single unit with a spiral blade A and rotates around the shaft B during the rotation of the screw 523. As a result, when the agitating plate 523 passes below the shaft W auger, it comes into contact with a group of products and condiments collected at the bottom of each section with the second #12 on the fourth #14 inside the pipe 522. Next, as shown dotted broken line in Fig (for the case when the screw 521 is rotated in the normal direction AR14), the group's products and condiments are pushed upward along the inner peripheral surface of the pipe 522 and thus mixed. The group's products are distributed in a thin layer on the inner peripheral surface, and each individual product, which is part of the group's products is on the surface (of the group) and well mixed with seasoning. As a result, articles in the group X is evenly seasoned, and every single item flavoured without any deviations.

Others settled in other words, while the group's products with your seasoning is transported in the direction of the discharge aperture In the group's products and seasonings mixed plate 523, and individual items in the group X are rotated and flipped, thus excluding, for example, application of seasoning on only one side of the product. Therefore, seasoning applied to each product as a whole, guaranteed seasoning each single product without any deviations. In addition, since such mixing is performed by a plate 523 having a flat surface, the effect of mixing is enhanced, thus allowing you to spice up every single item with greater reliability without any deviations.

In this embodiment, the pipe 522 is supported with the possibility of free rotation around the axis by means of supporting elements 524...524. As shown in Fig. 17, in this embodiment, each supporting element 524 supports the pipe 522, using the roller a. Pipe 522 is cylindrical, and the inner peripheral surface which is in sliding contact with the helical blade A, and an outer peripheral surface which is in contact with the possibility of rotation with roller a, have a circular cross-section. The second motor 526 rotates the pipe 522 around the axis through the gear 527 and gears 528 (arrows AR18, AR18 is and Fig and Fig). Pipe 522 is made of plastic with high transparency (for example, from acrylic plastic), including the front and rear end sides, not just the body, so that the contents of the pipe are readily observable from the outside.

As shown in Fig, each control unit 591, 592, 593 weighing device 510, the device 520 to make seasoning and packaging unit 530 receives signals, for example, other peripheral devices and sensors, etc. posted with the rear flow side and the front on the flow side of the system 501 food production, as well as mutually exchanging signals S1-S4. For example, the device 591, 592, 593 control various actuators such as a motor which opens and closes the weighing bin 512 synchronized hopper 514, etc. in the case of the weighing device 510, engines 525, 526 to rotate the screw 521, pipe 522, etc. in the case of the device 520 to make condiments; and drive motors stretching of the belt, the cross sealer, etc. in the case of the packaging device 530.

An EXAMPLE of the OPERATION of the DEVICE

On Fig presents a time chart showing an exemplary basic operation of the control device 520 to make seasonings system 501 food production, i.e. moving one of the group's products in the discharge frequent the (screw 521 is rotated in the normal direction AR14), and its transportation to the discharge hole Century. Fig is a corresponding diagram of operations. In the General case, in response to a request from a located further downstream device 501 produce product consistently starts working devices that are located closer to the stream. Namely, as shown in Fig, if the packing unit 530 sends the signal S1 query unloading (time t1), the device 520 to make condiments, requiring unloading seasoned group of products, the device 520 to make seasonings receives this signal and after the expiry of the specified time delay (volatile), starts the rotation of the screw 521 and sends a signal to unload S2 back to the packing device 530, indicating that the group of products made with spices unloaded (time t2).

In addition to sending the response signal S2 unloading device 520 to make seasonings sends the signal S3 request the weighing device 510, requiring the submission of a balanced group of products. The weighing unit 510 receives this signal, opens synchronized hopper 514 and sends a response signal S4 supply device 520 for making condiments, indicating that a balanced group of products unloaded. In one group of products, which was suspended, but which is not yet included seasoning, passes through the inlet and on the SHS will in the first section #1 device 520 to make condiments. The word "SUBMISSION" in the area of supply of products into the hole a in figure 1 indicates the time interval during which a group of products, even without seasoning, passes through the inlet A.

When receiving the signal S1 of the request for discharge from 530 unloading auger 521 performs only one 360° in the direction of the AR14, then stops and waits for the next signal S1 of the request for discharge. In this case, the screw 521, as shown by the solid line in Fig, will be waiting with mixing plates 523...523 in position directly underneath the shaft W screw (bottom section). In other words, the screw 521 will turn from this position (Fig(a)) and will stop at this position (Fig(d)). Each number on a corner plot mixing plate 523 to Fig denotes the angle θ relative to the original position (0°), indicated by the line Fig in the direction of AR14. Obviously, if the screw 521 rotates 360°each section #11 - #15, respectively advances one step.

Screw 521 slowly turns from 0 to 120°. This interval (t2-t5) is a time period when mixing plate 523 pushes the group's products and seasoning up with the lower part of the section on the inner peripheral surface of the pipe 522, thus mixing them, as discussed above. That is they way since the group's products and seasoning mix slowly during this time, the group's products are evenly seasoning and each individual product that is more seasoned securely without any deviations. Additionally, there is virtually no risk that a mixing plate 523 will throw products at high speed and move them to an adjacent section through the helical space. In addition, this version run also eliminates problems such as shock plate 523 to products when they are mixing, which could cause cracks, chips and cracking products.

Further, a dashed line on Fig shows that the end portion of the mixing plate 523 in the direction of AR14 rotation is close to the inner peripheral surface of the pipe 522. Thus, a large number of products in the pipe 522 and sections can be processed and mixed plate without any leakage. In addition, the end part of the plate 523 in the direction of AR14 rotation is thinner than other parts. Thus in the present embodiment attenuates shock during contact of the mixing plate 523 products, enabling products are easy to slip on a mixing plate 523, thereby preventing cracking, splitting and cracking products.

D. the Executive, the broken line on Fig clearly shown that the mixing plate 523 is located between the partitions formed by the spiral blade A in such a way that it takes approximately vertical position before will be directly above (180°) shaft W due to the rotation of the screw 521. Thus, when the agitating plate 523 is located approximately vertically, all products raised agitating plate 523, fall down. Consequently, there is virtually no risk that the product mix plate 523, will stay on the plate 523, it will be moved to an adjacent section through the helical space. As a result, the speed of the mixing plate 523 (screw rotation speed 521 or the transport speed of the group's products) can be increased, thus increasing the performance of the device 520 to make condiments.

In addition, in the present example, the mixing plate 523 is located approximately vertically (see plate 523, shown in a broken line on Fig), when the screw 521 is rotated 120° (t5: Fig(C)). Namely, when the plate 523 is turned downward and it completely fell all products, screw 521 immediately goes on a high speed. Of course, the period in which the mixing plate 523 is in the upright position, and peri is d, in which the screw 521 rotates at high speed, not necessarily coincide, if the first event occurs before the latter.

Money supply 540, 550 seasonings served powdered seasoning in the corresponding period of time when mixing plate 523 pushes the group's products up from the lower part of the section on the inner peripheral surface of the pipe 522 (t3-t4: Fig (b)). The period of time during which the seasoning is sprayed, is set according to, firstly, the period of time in which the group's products under stirring plate 523, moves up and distributed in a thin layer on the inner peripheral surface of the pipe 522, thus, each and every individual product is guaranteed on the surface (of the group)and, secondly, the period of time in which the nozzles 546, 556, overlapping the second section #12 and the fourth section #14, as discussed above, and thirdly, the period of time in which spray seasoning falls approximately at the Central part of the group's products (the Central part of the section in the direction of the arrow), etc. In the present example, the sputtering begins when the screw 521 is rotated 70° (t3) (see mixing plate 523 shown in dotted lines on Fig), and the spraying is completed when the screw 521 is rotated 90° (t4).

Šnē the 521 quickly turns from 120 to 360° (t5-t6: Fig(s)-Fig(d)). Thus, the transport speed of the group's products increases, increasing the performance of the device 520 to make the seasoning. Additionally, the group's products were in the fourth section #14 ultimately reaches the discharge aperture Into and unloaded from the fifth section #15 of the device 520 to make condiments.

The following description explains the unloaded group X-flavoured products.

As described above, the group X products made with seasoning is poured from the fifth section #15 in the packing device 530 through the discharge hole C. In this case, when the package one package at one time, for each individual section should be a clear separation (separation) between the group of products that have already been dumped (unloaded), and a group of products, which must be poured (unloaded) later. Otherwise, products will be captured in the transverse weld seam in the packing device 530. This example is appropriate because at this point the screw 521 is rotated intermittently and from time t6 to time t2 of the next working cycle, transportation, introducing seasoning (spraying and mixing spices and unloading of products is stopped, and in this period of time is a clear separation between the groups of products before and after the rash and you the power of the device 520 to make condiments.

An EXAMPLE of the RECIPROCATING movement of the ARTICLES

On Fig presents a time chart in the form of a table showing a typical operation of the control device 520 for making condiments, i.e. one example of the operation in which the group X products reciprocating moves toward the discharge side and to the input of the device (screw 521 is rotated in the normal direction AR14 and in the opposite direction AR15), and then transported to the discharge part for discharging the products. In addition, for convenience, the second section #12 and the fourth section #14, which are sections making seasonings, respectively designated as the first section made of spices and a second section made of seasonings.

Next, a new group of products is served in the device 520 to make the seasonings in the first section #11, when, for example, the number of turns is equal to one (regardless of the rotation of the screw 521 in the normal or reverse direction) (character And enclosed in a circle, denotes newly submitted a group of products; such characters are used for other groups). At this time, groups D, C, B products consistently placed in sections #12 - #14, respectively, in the conveying direction forward from the rear flow side. Then screw 521 is rotated in the normal direction AR14 one turn (turn No. 2), after which it the front group In the product is unloaded from the fifth section #15 of the device. The group of articles is moved to the second section of #12, where it is sprayed seasoning (underscore symbol, And indicates that these products are made seasoning, and only a group of products in the table highlighted), producing first make seasoning. In addition, at this time in the first section #11 is not available the following group of products (section marked "..."means empty partition).

Then screw 521 is rotated in the reverse direction AR15 one turn (turn No. 3), after which the group of articles is moved back to the first section #11, and the fourth section #14 at this time is empty. In this situation, if the first section #11 is also provided a mixing plate 523 (plate 523 is not really interfere with the flow of product groups), it is more preferred because the length of stay and the time of contact groups And products with seasonings not just increased, but the group And the products are also mixed in the first section #11. In this case, the newly submitted to the device 520 to make seasonings product better to enter the dressing as soon as possible. With this in mind, the first introduction of spices produced during rotation No. 2.

Then screw 521 again rotated in the normal direction AR14 one turn (turn No. 4). The group of articles is moved again one step to the second section of #12 and then re-fed seasoning. In this in EMA the next new group of products is served in the first section #11. Then screw 523 is rotated in the normal direction AR14 one turn (turn No. 5). The front group of products unloaded from the fifth section #15 of the device. Group a products mixed with seasoning in the third section #13.

Then screw 521 is again rotated in the reverse direction AR15 one turn (turn No. 6). The group And the products back again one step in the second section #12, where it is again sprayed seasoning. Then screw 521 is rotated forward (turn No. 7), the group And the products are simply mixed in the third section #13; then screw 521 is rotated forward again (turn No. 8), after which the group And the products sprayed seasoning in the fourth section #14. Then screw 521 is rotated back (turn No. 9), resulting in group a products just mixed in the third section #13; then screw 521 is rotated forward (turn No. 10), after which the group And the products sprayed seasoning in the fourth section #14. Then screw 521 is rotated forward (turn No. 11), after which the group And the product is unloaded from the fifth section #15 of the device. This process of transporting and depositing the seasoning is the same for any other groups B, C and D products. In addition, the rotation status is No. 13 in the table corresponds to the state of the first rotation No. 1.

Thus, by turning the screw 521 twice in typically the direction AR14 and once in the reverse direction AR15 section carries out two steps forward and one step back. As a result, the group And the products (as well as in groups B, C, D) periodically served seasoning and products are mixed with seasoning for a sufficiently long period of time: (1) supply - (2) amendment seasoning - (3) transportation (or mixing) - (4) adding seasoning to (5) mixing - (6) amendment seasoning - (7) mixing - (8) amendment seasoning (9) of the mixing - (10) amendment seasoning - (11) download. In contrast, the work described above (see Fig, 8), group of undesirable products quickly out of the device 520 to make the seasoning for an extremely short period of time: (1) supply - (2) amendment seasoning - (3) mixing - (4) adding seasoning to (5) unloading.

Namely, in operations with the reciprocating movement of products, since the products of the reciprocating moves toward the discharge side and to the input of the device, in the process of transporting groups of products made with seasoning, the total length of the path of transportation of the group's products, as well as the residence time and contact time of the group's products and seasonings, thus, can be increased sufficiently. As a result, the time and duration of mixing the product with seasoning is satisfactory and guaranteed uniform introduction of seasonings without about is adowanie celenapravlennaia parts and slaboperemennykh parts. In addition, the performance of group of products and seasoning or section of the reciprocating movement is preferred because with the increase of total distance road transportation the actual distance of the route (distance along the axial direction of the screw 521 and pipe 522) does not increase and, therefore, it avoids lengthening device 520 to make condiments. As a result, there are no problems with the device 520 to make the spices, as the system 501 of food production, because they do not require large production areas.

In addition, when the reciprocating movement of the group of products of the same group (for example, A) passes through the first section making condiments #12 and a second section made of spices #14 several times in the same product group dressing can be made several times. As a result, the device according to the invention can be applied several layers of seasoning to the product group, such as, for reliable season, if, for example, the same seasoning served several times, or to provide complex taste of products, for example, when applying different seasonings. In addition, in the present example, the seasoning is sprayed each time the product passes through the partition making condiments #12, #14 (a total of five times), but it is not limited the of the present invention. You can reduce the number of shots seasonings. However, even in this case, it is preferable to introduce the seasoning in the newly filed with the device 520 to make seasonings product group as early as possible, as discussed above, and, therefore, first serve condiments must be performed when the product group for the first time moved to the section making condiments #12.

The SIXTH embodiment of the

On Fig presents the scheme of the whole system 501 manufacture products according to the sixth variant execution, and Fig shows a cross-section side view of the device 520 to make the seasonings in the system 501 manufacture products like Fig. In the present embodiment, the second section #12 and the third section #13 are sections of the filing of the seasonings, and the fourth section #14 is a section of discharge. In addition, step spiral blades A increased in sections of filing seasoning #12 - #13. In other words, while the group's products with your seasoning is transported to the discharge side of the device, the area of the longitudinal section (square, seen from above) of each of the sections #12 - #13 increases. Thus, the group's products, placed separately in sections #12, #13, are distributed in a thin layer, not forming dense clusters, and seasoning well put on every single item in the group's products. As a result, the time and duration of paramasivan the I group X products with seasoning will be the same and will increase thus more reliably ensuring uniform application of seasonings.

In addition, as shown in Fig, the increase in the area of the longitudinal section of each of the sections #12 - #13 reduces the thickness in bulk (height) of the group's products marked with this symbol L' (the thickness in the bulk of the group's products in the fifth embodiment of the invention denoted by the symbol L), and thus reduces the risk of movement of the articles in the adjacent section through the spiral space, even if, for example, products are planted mixing plate 523. Therefore, the mixing rate associated with peremestivsheesya plate 523, i.e. the rotation speed of the screw 521 may be increased, thus increasing the performance of the device for depositing the seasoning.

In addition, in the present embodiment, the mixing element is not necessarily the plate, as in previous versions of the invention (for example, this element may also be a round rod). In other words, the group's products are guaranteed to be evenly entered the dressing due to the fact that the area of the longitudinal section of each of the sections #12-#13 is increased in the process of transporting product group X with your seasoning in the direction of the discharge aperture Century

An EXAMPLE of the RECIPROCATING movement of the ARTICLES

In Fig. 23 presents the belt schedule in the form of a table, which displays a typical operation of the control device 520 to make the seasonings in the sixth embodiment, i.e. operations of the reciprocating movement of the group's products to the discharge side and to the input of the device (screw 521 is rotated in the normal direction AR14 and in the opposite direction AR15), and then the transportation of the group's products to the discharge part. In this case, the section also re-moves two steps and returns one step screw 521, producing two turns in the normal direction AR14 and one turn in the opposite direction AR15. However, compared with the fifth option perform the number of sections is reduced by one and, therefore, for a group of products (as well as other groups B, C, D products) are sequentially performed: (1) supply - (2) amendment seasoning - (3) transport (mixing) - (4) adding seasoning to (5) adding seasoning to (6) amendment seasoning - (7) amendment seasoning - (8) unloading. In addition, even with a small number of sections product group is in the device 520 to make the spices quite a long time within eight turnovers.

In this case, it is permissible not to spray seasoning each time when passing a group of products sections make seasoning #12-#13, thereby reducing the number of shots seasoning so W is, as in the fifth embodiment. However, if the number of shots seasoning decreases, the amount of money supply seasonings can also be reduced, as shown in Fig. Fig is an example of a removal tool 550 filing seasoning, located ahead of the flow of products, and use the third section #13 only for mixing. In this case, groups And products (and also for other groups B, C, D items) as one of the examples sequentially performed: (1) supply - (2) amendment seasoning - (3) transport (mixing) - (4) adding seasoning to (5) mixing - (6) amendment seasoning - (7) mixing - (8) unloading.

In addition, each of the examples follows the scheme of promotion on the two step and return one step. However, this is not a limitation of the present invention. Taking into account the number of sections, it is also possible the reciprocating movement of the product to the discharge part and the input part using other promotion schemes, such as the promotion of three steps and go back one step; the promotion of three steps and return to the two step or promotion in four steps and return to the two step and other possible combinations of these schemes.

The SEVENTH embodiment of the

On Fig presents the diagram of the system 701 manufacturing products is tov according to the seventh variant implementation of the invention. System 701 food production weights, makes seasoning packs and snacks type of potato chips and contains sequentially in the flow direction of the weighing device 710, the device 720 for making dressings and packing device 730.

The weighing device 710, for example, is a well-known combined device, measuring a few of the weighing hoppers 712...712 weight products supplied through cumulative bins 711...711, calculates combinations of each weight value, discharging the articles from the weighing hoppers 712...712, respectively, the optimal combination and collecting the product in a synchronized bunker 714 using the tray 713. Then synchronized bunker 714 is opened and collected by a separate group of products is fed from the inlet And in the device 720 to make seasonings (arrow AR21).

The device 720 to make condiments contains the screw 721, continuing horizontally, and the tube 722, in which the set screw 721. Group of products submitted from the inlet And is transported to the discharge opening In making condiments (arrow AR22), and the product made by seasoning is unloaded from the hole In the packing device 730 (arrow AR23).

The device 720 to make seasonings further provided with means 740, 750 submission PR is right. Means 740, 750 filing seasonings have sprayers 746, 756, provided and located approximately in the Central part along the longitudinal direction of the tube 722. Sprayers 746, 756 connected to air compressors 744, 754 through channels 745, 755. Powdered seasoning, stored in tanks, 741, 751, measured using screw feeders 743, 753, driven by motors 742, 752, and is introduced into the channels 745, 755. Put the powdered seasoning is fond of compressed air produced by the air compressors 744, 754, and is sprayed from the spray nozzles 746, 756 in the pipe 722. In addition, for funds 740, 750 filing seasonings Pets respectively supply the same seasonings as well as supply different seasonings. In the first case, it is possible, for example, more reliable pripravljena, and in the latter case, you can ensure, for example, well-seasoned product complex (rich) taste.

Device 730 represents, for example, a well-known vertical device for packaging cushion type, which stretches the tape packing material (not shown) down at the same time shaping it in the form of a pipe formulateed 732 on the periphery of the pipe 733 vertical and weld the packaging material in the longitudinal and transverse directions, thus forming a bag. Then this bag is through the reception of the first tray 731 and pipe 733 is populated by a group of seasoned products, unloaded from the device 720 to make condiments, thereby obtaining the final product (in this embodiment, the bag filled with snack).

As shown in the enlarged view on Fig, the device 720 to make seasonings installed on the platform 700. The rear (relative to the direction of flow of the products) of the device 720 to make condiments provided with inlet And to supply products and bin a main site feed products. Front (relative to the direction of flow of the products) of the device 720 to make condiments provided with a discharge hole for discharging products and tray a unloading components of the discharge Assembly of products.

Screw 721 has a spiral vane A and shaft B around which it rotates when engine 725 (arrow AR24). Spiral vane A has a few turns of the spiral (5½) with the same step. Spiral vane A several forms arranged in a horizontal direction of the baffles inside the tube 722. Partitions divide the space inside the tube 722 and distinguish between multiple partitions #21 - #25 (five in the present example)horizontally. Spiral vane A spiral divides the space inside the tube 722, and #21-#25 are not closed, but mutually and spiral bound. However, since the group of cookware and condiments is collected in the lower part of the inside of the tube 722, this group in the lower part of the shaft V auger separates spiral blade A and cannot move back and forth in a related field and one of them. Therefore, the inner part of the spiral space located below the shaft V screw, can be used as a section, which contains a group of products and seasoning, and separates them from other groups of products and seasonings. When the engine 725 rotates the screw 721 in the direction of the arrow AR24, all section #21 - #25 are moved together from the rear (relative to the direction of flow of the product) side to the front (relative to the direction of flow of the products) the parties, and groups of products collected in sections #21 - #25 are transported from the inlet And to the discharge hole of the Century

The first section #21 is a section, which originally served the group of articles from the weighing device 710 to device 720 to make the seasonings through the input tray a and the inlet (section feed products). As shown in Fig, the front end part of the input tray a is not directly above the shaft W auger, but is with some offset from him, as the group's products must be in the first section #21, as shown by the arrow AR21', and must not enter the second section of the #22 with the front stream side (see Fig).

The second section #22 and the fourth section #24 are section and, in which the above-described nozzles 746, 756 serves powdered seasoning (feeding section seasoning). In addition, Fig shows the state in which the nozzles 746, 756 do not fully cover the second section #22 and the fourth section #24 (the state in which the rotation angle of the screw 721, described below, is 0°). If #21 - #25 are moved from this point forward flow, the second section #22 and the fourth section #24 will be fully covered by the spray 746, 756 and powdered seasoning sprayed from nozzles 746, 756, will be securely submitted to the second section of the #22 and the fourth section #24.

As shown in Fig, sprayers 746, 756 are provided right on the peripheral surface of the pipe 722 and supported by the brackets and the like (not shown). Sprayers 746, 756 spray powder seasoning, being aimed at the region near to the inner peripheral surface of the pipe 722 (arrow AR25). Sprayers 746, 756 sprayed powdered seasoning in an amount corresponding to the amount of product groups, separately placed in each section, and the ratio of products and seasonings in each partition is maintained in optimal proportions given.

The fifth section #25 is a section in which a group of seasoned product is unloaded from the device 720 to make the seasonings in the packing device are discharge opening In the tray, 720b unloading (section unloading devices). On Fig discharge hole is located directly underneath the shaft V auger. Thus, all group X-flavoured products, gathered in the lower part of the inside of the tube 722, quickly unloaded from the device 720 to make the seasonings in the packing device 730.

Agitating plate 723...723 provided and installed between the partitions formed by the spiral blade A, with the second section #22 in the fourth section #24 (in the present description, the third section is the only section of the mixing). Agitating plate 723 used for mixing the groups of products and condiments placed in each of the sections with the second #22 on the fourth #24. Agitating plate 723 forms one whole with a spiral blade A and rotates around the shaft B during the rotation of the screw 721 (arrow AR24'). As a result, when the agitating plate 723 passes below the shaft W auger, it comes into contact with a group of products and condiments collected at the bottom of each section with the second section #22 in the fourth section #24 inside the tube 722. In addition, as shown dotted broken line in Fig, the group's products and condiments are pushed upward along the inner peripheral surface of the pipe 722 and thus mixed. The group's products are distributed in a thin layer on the inner peripheral surface and each individual item in the group is located in the outer layer and mixed with seasoning. As a result, the group's products are evenly seasoning and every single item flavoured without any deviations.

In other words, while the group's products with added seasoning is transported to the discharge hole, due to the mixing of the group's products and condiments plate 723 individual items in the group's products are rotated and flipped, thus excluding, for example, application of seasoning on only one side of the product. Therefore, seasoning can be applied over the entire surface of each product without any deviations, thus securely seasoning each single product without any deviations. In addition, since such mixing is performed by a plate 723 having a flat surface, the effect of mixing is enhanced, thus allowing you to spice up every single product more reliably without any deviations.

In the present invention the tube 722 is supported with the possibility of free rotation around the axis by means of supporting elements 724...724. As shown in Fig. 30, in this embodiment, each supporting element 724 supports the tube 722, using the roller a. Tube 722 is cylindrical, and the inner peripheral surface which is in sliding contact with the helical blade A and external accessories the emergency surface, which rotates in contact with the roller a, both have a round cross-section. The second motor 726 rotates the tube 722 around the axis through the gear 727 and gears 728 (arrows AR26, AR27). Tube 722 is made of highly transparent plastic (e.g. acrylic), including not only the body, but the face side, front and back, so its contents can be observed from the outside.

As shown in Fig, each control unit 791, 792, 793 weighing device 710, device 720 to make condiments and packaging unit 730 receives signals, for example, from various other peripherals and sensors, etc. posted from the back and the front (relative to the direction of flow of the products) sides of the system 701 food production, as well as mutually exchanging signals S1-S4. For example, the control unit 791, 792, 793 control a variety of actuators, such as the engine, the opening and closing of the weighing hopper 712, synchronized bunker 714, etc. in the case of the weighing device 710, motors 725, 726 rotation of the screw 721, pipes 722, etc. in case of device 720 to make the seasonings and the drive motor is pulling the belt, the cross sealer, etc. in the case of the packaging device 730.

The EXAMPLE PROCESS CONTROL

Fig is temporary, grafico is, showing a specific example of the control device 720 to make seasonings system 701 food production, and Pig is a working chart. In the General case, in response to the request signal located further down stream products device, the system 701 production begins consecutive work earlier, relative to the direction of flow of the products, devices. Namely, as shown in Fig, if the packaging device 730 sends the signal S1 query unloading (time t1), the device 720 to make condiments, requiring unloading seasoned group of products, the device 720 to make seasonings receives this signal and after the expiry of the specified time delay (volatile), starts the rotation of the screw 721 and sends a signal to unload S2 back to the packing device 730, indicating that a group of seasoned products unloaded (time t2).

Further, in addition to sending an answer signal S2 unloading unit 720 to make seasonings sends the signal S3 request the weighing device 710, requiring the submission of a balanced group of products. The weighing unit 710 receives this signal, opens synchronized bunker 714 and sends a response signal S4 feed device 720 to make condiments, confirming that the weighted product group unloaded. In the group of products that has been weighing the Shen, but which is not yet included seasoning, passes through the inlet and flows into the first section #21 device 720 to make condiments. The word "SUBMISSION" in the area of supply of products into the hole And Fig specifies the time interval during which it is not yet seasoned group of products passes through the inlet A.

When the signal S1 of the request for discharge from the device 730 unloading auger 721 performs one rotation 360° in the direction of the AR24, and then stops and waits for the next signal S1 of the request for discharge. In this case, the screw 721, as shown by the solid line in Fig, will be waiting with the agitating plate 723...723, located directly underneath the shaft W screw (bottom section). In other words, the screw 721 starts rotation from this position (Fig(a)) and will stop at this position (Fig(d)). Each numerical value in the column angle plate 723 on Fig shows the angle θ rotation from position 0°specified line on Fig in the direction of arrow AR24. Obviously, if the screw 721 rotates 360°each section #21 - #25, respectively advances one step.

Screw 721 slowly turns from 0 to 120°. This interval (t2-t5) is a time period when the moving plate 723 pushes the group's products and condiments up on the lower part of the section on the inner peripheral surface of the pipe 722, thus mixing them, as discussed above. Thus, since the group's products and seasoning mix slowly during this period, the group's products evenly seasoned and each individual product that is more seasoned securely without any deviations. In addition, there is virtually no risk that the agitating plate 723 is to throw items at high speed and move them to an adjacent section through the helical space. In addition, the present embodiment of prevents problems such as shock interaction agitating plate 723 products, causing cracking, splitting and cracking products.

The dashed line on Fig shows that the end portion of the agitating plate 723 towards AR24' rotation is close to the inner peripheral surface of the pipe 722. Thus, in the pipe 722 section may be provided and mixed with a large number of products without any leakage. Additionally, the end portion of the agitating plate 723 towards AR24' rotation thinner than its other parts. This embodiment of weakening blow at the beginning of the contact agitating plate 723 products, enabling products to easily climb up on the plate 723, thereby preventing cracking, splitting and breaking what steli.

Additionally, the broken line on Fig shown that the agitating plate 723 is located between the partitions formed by the spiral blade A in such a way that it takes approximately vertical position before will be directly above (180°) shaft W due to the rotation of the screw 721. Thus, when the agitating plate 723 is located approximately vertically, all products raised agitating plate 723, fall down. Consequently, there is virtually no risk that the products, due to their mixing plate 723, will be fascinated by this plate and move to the adjacent section through the helical space. As a result, the speed of the mixing plate 723 (screw rotation speed 721 or the transport speed of the group's products) can be increased, thus increasing the performance of the device 720 to make condiments.

In addition, in the present example, the agitating plate 723 is located essentially vertically (see plate 723, shown in a broken line on Fig), when the screw 721 is rotated 120° (t5: Fig(C)). Namely, when the agitating plate 723 is facing down and all products with it fell the screw 721 immediately goes to high speed. Of course, the period in which the agitating plate 723. Lorena vertically, and the period in which the screw 721 starts to rotate at high speed, should not necessarily be the same, if only the first event occurs before the latter.

Money supply 740, 750 seasonings served powdered seasoning in the relevant period of time, when the agitating plate 723 pushes the group's products up from the lower part of the section on the inner peripheral surface of the pipe 722 (t3-t4: Fig (b)). The period during which the seasoning is sprayed, is set according to, first, time, during which the group's products under agitating plate 723, pushed up and distributed in a thin layer on the inner peripheral surface of the pipe 722, thus placing in the outer layer of each single product, secondly, the time during which the spray 746, 756, overlap section with the second #22 on the fourth #24, as discussed above, and, thirdly, the time during which the spray seasoning gets down about the Central part of the group's products (the Central part of the section in the direction of the arrow); etc. In the present example, the sputtering begins when the screw 721 is rotated 70° (t3) (see the agitating plate 723 shown in dotted lines on Fig), and the spraying is completed when the screw 721 is rotated 90° (t4).

Screw 721 is rotated 120 is about 360° (t5-t6: Fig(s)-Fig(d)). Thus, the transport speed of the group's products increases, increasing the performance of the device 720 to make condiments. Additionally, the group's products, which was in the fourth section #24, ultimately reaches the discharge aperture Into and unloaded from the fifth section #25 device 720 to make condiments.

The following description explains the unloaded group X-flavoured products.

As discussed above, the group X flavored product is poured from the fifth section #25 in the packing device 730 through the discharge hole C. In this case, when the packaging of a package of each individual partition, there should be a clear separation (separation or separation) between the groups of products that have already spilled and unloaded, and groups of products that need to sleep and be discharged the following. Otherwise, products will be captured in the transverse weld seam in the packing device 730. This working example is appropriate because at this point the screw 721 rotates periodically and from time t6 to time t2 of the next working cycle, transportation, introducing seasoning (spraying and mixing and unloading of products is stopped and at this time there is a clear separation between the groups of products before and after the rash and unloading and the device 720 to make the seasoning.

Additionally, as shown by the symbol α Fig, auger device 721 720 to make seasonings stops and is waiting at an angle 0°in which the rear relative to the direction of flow of the edge of the discharge openings is at least a specified distance down the stream than the spiral blade A on the border between the fourth section #24 and section #25 unloading of products. Thus, even if the screw 721 begins to turn at the time t2, the fourth section #24 will not immediately be communicated with the discharge hole Century. in Other words, the moment in which the group's products in the fourth section #24 begins to sleep and be discharged from the discharge aperture, lag time from the time t2 (see Fig(b)). In this example, when the screw 721 rotates approximately 110° (between the moments t4 and t5), as shown in the plot unloading of products from the hole In on Fig, the fourth section #24 begins to communicate with the discharge hole and the group's products in the fourth section #24 begins to sleep and be discharged from the discharge openings Century the supply of spices through the spray 756 in the group's products in the fourth section #24 have been completed and almost the entire volume of goods seized agitating plate 723, again falls back in the fourth section #24 (i.e. paramasivan the e completed). Therefore, the problem does not exist if the group's products in the fourth section #24 begins to be discharged, when the screw 721 is rotated approximately 110°. Thus, the time delay early discharge group X flavored products reduces the total unloading time group X flavored products as possible. In the so-called tail of the group's products during their rash through the pipe 733 packaging unit 730 is reduced, it also reduces the number of problems associated with getting products in a transverse weld seam.

A SECOND EXAMPLE of a PROCESS CONTROL

Fig is a temporary schedule showing one specific example of the control device 720 to make seasonings system 701 food production, and Pig is a working chart. In the present example, the tube 722 is also rotated synchronously with the rotation of the screw 721. Between the moments t2-t5 tube 722 is rotated with the same speed as the screw 721, and in the same direction. As a result, the discharge hole In the material rises, maintaining their positional relationship with a spiral blade A, and, as shown by the symbol β Fig(C), the group's products will not sleep even when the fourth section #24 is located above the tray 720b unloading.

Then between t5-t6 screw 721 is rotated vysokoskorostnie, and the tube 722 is rotated in the reverse direction AR27. Thus, within a short period of time section of the unloading devices #25 communicates with the discharge hole and the whole group X flavored products quickly unloaded from the device 720 to make condiments packaging device 730. Thus, the beginning of the unloading of the group X flavored products is delayed even more and the total unloading time group X flavored products is very short. As a result, the tail group of products becomes the shortest and decreases the problem with hit products in the transverse weld seam.

The EIGHTH embodiment of the

In Fig. 35 shows a diagram of the entire system 701 manufacture products according to the eighth variant implementation of the invention. On Fig shows a side view in cross section of the device 720 to make condiments provided in the system 701 of food production, like Fig. Fig is a working diagram showing one example of operations of the control device 720 to make condiments, such Fig.

In the present embodiment, the second section #22 and the third section #23 are sections make the seasoning, and the fourth section #24 is a section of discharge. In addition, the distance between the partitions formed by the spiral blade A, increases the raised sections in submission seasonings #22-#23. In other words, while the group X-flavoured products, is transported to the discharge hole, the area of the longitudinal section (square, seen from above) of each of the sections #22-#23 increases. Thus, the group's products, separately located in sections #22, #23, are distributed in a thin layer without the formation of dense aggregations and every single item in the group's products are well seasoned. As a result, the time and duration of mixing of group X products with seasoning will be satisfactory and thus reliably provides more uniform introduction of spices and do not form parts of the products, flavored too strongly or too weakly.

In addition, as shown in Fig, the increase in the area of the longitudinal section of each of the sections #22-#23 reduces the thickness in bulk (height) of the group's products, as shown by the symbol L' (the height of the group's products in the seventh embodiment, denoted by the symbol L), and thus decreases the possibility that the product will move to the adjacent section through the spiral space, even if, for example, products are planted agitating plate 723. Therefore, the speed of the mixing plate 723, i.e. the rotation speed of the screw 721 may be increased, thus increasing the performance of the device for making condiments.

In addition to the, in the present embodiment, the agitating plate 723 is not necessarily a plate, as in the previous embodiments of the invention (for example, it may be a round rod). In other words, the group X products securely and evenly seasoned only due to the fact that the area of the longitudinal section of each of the sections #22-#23 is increased in the process of transporting product group X with any seasoning to the discharge hole of the Century

Therefore, as shown in Fig(b), the distance between the partitions formed by the spiral blade A, #25 unloading products narrows and the group X products, pour from the discharge aperture, decreases, as a consequence, as far as possible, shortening the tail of the group's products and reducing the risk of product cross is welded seams.

In other words, this version of the invention is a device 720 to make condiments, which transports the group's products, supplied from the input part (hole) to the discharge part (hole) when adding seasonings, and contains a means of transportation, which takes each group X products fed into the input part, section, and transports each group's products to the discharge part, and means 740, 750 for serving condiments in each group X products. Means for transporting includes screw 721, which lasts approximately horizontally between the input part and the discharge part, the tube 722, in which the set screw 721, and the drive 725, which rotates the auger around the shaft 721 W auger. Section is a space separated spiral blade A screw 721 in the tube 722, and the step of spiral blades A separating section in which the group X products made with seasoning, narrows at the place of unloading (#25 in the example).

The TENTH OPTION

Typically, auxiliary items, such as coupons, put in a bag made Packed device 730 according to a seventh variant of the invention, to facilitate the sale of products. Typically, the attachment of such products in the packing is done, for example, by attachment of auxiliary products into the receiving tray 731 the pipe 733 synchronized with the eruption of the group's products in the device 730 packaging. However, due to differences in the weight of products and auxiliary products their rate of fall is different, that it is undesirable in the production of high-speed as possible problems, such as getting ancillary products in the transverse weld seam. In addition, there are cases in which, for example, auxiliary items stuck inside the pipe 733, do not fall in the required manner and do not mix with the product group. Therefore, it is preferable to provide a hole for supplying auxiliary products in the specified area of the pipe 722 device 720 to make condiments. Thus, this device provides an introduction seasoning in group X products fed into the input part (the hole), and this group is transported to the discharge part (hole), while serving ancillary products. Thus, facilitated the introduction of ancillary products that are reliably mixed with product groups, and error when submitting becomes unlikely that improves performance.
