At the IBIE show in September, Delta, BC-based Unifiller plans to launch several new pieces of equipment that are exclusively designed for supermarket and commissary bakeries and delis that supply supermarkets, said Sonia Bal, the company’s director of global marketing.

One of those pieces of equipment is the Uni-Sprayer, a unique portable spraying and flocking solution that eliminates the need for environmentally dangerous oil spray cans and can handle a variety of applications, with the most basic being spraying oil onto pans for easy pan release. 

The machine is ideal for spraying simple syrup or milk onto cake layers, egg wash onto bread and pastries, and flocking condiments like ketchup, mustard, or mayo onto bread, wraps and more.

Other features include:

  • Food grade light and flexible braided hose
  • Interchangeable tips for different products and patterns
  • Handles particulates up to 1mm with optional flocker nozzle
  • 5 US Gallon (19 L) pressurized tank
  • Mobile frame with enclosed pneumatics
  • Air filtration system
  • Use with or without atomizing air

Unifiller will also be launching its Service App - Total Care, a system that will integrate automation and cloud connectivity to ensure a higher degree of responsiveness, metrics tracking and product standardization for the company’s customers while putting them in touch with key resources at the touch of a button.

At IBIE, Bakon will launch “a few new innovative and sustainable products,” said Luc Imberechts, owner of Torrance, Calif.-based Bakon Food Equipment, and it will showcase its new website to support its Blue Swell Initiative.
