Continuing its commitment to providing food processors with single-source support and helping expand its selection of coating systems and seasoning applicators, Heat and Control, Inc. purchased Spray Dynamics, Ltd.

Heat and Control, Inc., Hayward, Calif., a leading manufacturer of food processing and packaging equipment systems, purchased Spray Dynamics, Ltd., a St. Clair, Mo.-based builder of applicators for oils, seasonings, vitamins, tack and release agents, chocolate, yogurt and candy coatings, antioxidants, polishing wax and anti-clumping agents.   

“Spray Dynamics is a leading innovator of equipment for the controlled application of liquid and dry ingredients,” notes Tony Caridis, president of Heat and Control. “We have successfully partnered on projects over the years and found their equipment to be an excellent match with our own FastBack on-machine seasoning systems and individual in-kitchen flavoring applicators.”

“Heat and Control’s goal is to provide the best single-source support to our customers,” explains Caridis. “The Spray Dynamics line will enhance the versatility of our seasoning applicators, while giving our customers a greater choice of coating systems to meet individual product requirements.”

Spray Dynamics has built equipment since 1952, and has served the snack food industry since 1970. Heat and Control, founded in 1950, provides machinery and controls for food processing, seasoning, conveying, inspection and packaging.

Adds Caridis, “Considering our combined longevity and expertise, food processors can feel confident we will continue to provide them with the most efficient equipment and technical support possible.”
