Tna introduces the tna intelli-flavĀ® 2 flavoring system for flavored products as a completely integrated component of the new tna rofloĀ® 3 gateless and fully reversible transfer and distribution conveyors for the snack food industry. The tna intelli-flavĀ® 2 flavoring system patented software measures flavor rates and product flow to monitor and self-regulate the correct feed-rates for consistent product flavoring. By proportionally distributing product/flavoring to the feeder/flavoring system while controlling the load balance, the flavor drum maintains maximum flavoring runtime and minimizes under or over-flavoring. The consistent application and delicate handling also results in minimal flavor wastage and less product damage.

When the product flow rate changes, tna intelli-flavĀ® 2 issues a corresponding change in the flavor rate ensuring the correct ratio of flavor to product is delivered. Settings are retained as a recipe on a touchscreen for simple operation and repeatability.  A quick-change, lightweight polymer drum and gateless conveying pans require no tools, making changeovers and cleaning even quicker. The tna intelli-flavĀ® 2 flavoring system can be used in combination with virtually any distribution and packaging system and when fully integrated with the tna rofloĀ® 3 distribution system and tna robagĀ® 3, the operation is even further simplified.

tna rofloĀ® 3 is the world's first totally reversible, gateless transfer and distribution system. Linear servo-driven, horizontal motion and modular components permit bi-directional feed capabilities. Production systems with multiple products that would normally require a series of dedicated lines, can now be serviced by one tna rofloĀ® 3 line, reducing capital outlay by up to 40 percent. Using technology coined the "switcheroo," each modular stainless steel pan component is capable of up and down tilt and can reverse feed direction independently. This ground-breaking agility means that the tna rofloĀ® 3 conveyor is not locked into a fixed feed direction and can be configured into endless combinations.

The tna rofloĀ® 3 also uses "erector" technology to lift a selected modular stainless steel pan component, which creates complete physical separation of lines and completely eliminates the possibility of cross contamination of product between the pans on multi-product lines ā€“ a must where allergens are concerned. The pans also offer a no tools, quick release feature to further improve segregation\sanitation.

tna rofloĀ® 3's efficient and sustainable design is also underpinned by an absolute minimal use of moving parts - tna even removed the traditional discharge gates, all of which maximizes uptime and drives maintenance costs even lower.
