Viscous, non-pumpable materials like heavy liquid batters, tempura, and marinades can be applied to your product particularly well with the dipper. The products sit in between an upper and lower belt and are guided through a bath of coating media, e.g. a BBQ marinade or tempura batter. By means of an adjustable blower system, the excess coating material can be removed. That way, you get a product according to your taste.


Our dipper will gently apply heavy coating materials to your products. 

Perfectly suitable for:
BBQ products, tempura coated products, fried fish, nuggets and vegetables
