Peanut Butter And The Flat Nozzle

So, the call came in about mid-morning – an operator at a facility that fills plastic jars with peanut butter needed help with an application…

And I almost got stuck thinking about peanut butter. I like food, and peanut butter is near the top of my list. I’ve seen it successfully applied to cheeseburgers, and the peanut butter & bacon sandwich is even a breakfast staple in some of the Boy Scout groups I’ve been involved with. Crunchy or creamy, peanut butter rules.

Never underestimate the power of peanut butter...or bacon...to improve the quality of any sandwich.

Never underestimate the power of peanut butter…or bacon…to improve the quality of any sandwich. And together, they’re unbeatable. Just don’t ask your cardiologist.

Now, I’m a pro, so I didn’t allow this digression to supplant the attention I was giving the caller. The application was simple enough: the nozzle feeding the jars retains a small amount of the product at the tip, which drips off when it’s good & ready, thank you very much. This is oftentimes when the jar is in motion, so this little glob falls right onto the rim of the jar, causing issues with the protective seal, and a continuing mess as this jar with peanut butter on the outside of it travels down the line.

I recommended a Model 1126SSW 316SS 1” Flat Super Air Nozzle, with Swivel Fitting. They can install this to blow precisely where the air flow can direct the last bit of peanut butter from the fill nozzle into the jar, eliminating the mess, and any chance of a faulty lid seal.

The Model 1126/1126SS 1″ Flat Super Air Nozzle is ideal for high velocity, forceful blow off applications
