The alco-Breading-Machine Type APT


The alco-Breading-Machine, type APT, is designed to coat products with dry crumbs or powder. The machine can handle a wide variation of crumbs which flow by gravity in the circulation hopper (if not desired, see Preduster ABM). This allows other applications such as:

  • coating with bread crumbs, e.g. breaded products
  • coating with spices, e.g. barbecue products

The speed of the screws (vertical = circulation, horizontal = lower bed) can be adjusted by a frequency drive (except the smallest version APT 250). This guarantees an optimal flow and gentle treatment for each type of cru
