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 crumb.

Product examples

Meat, Fish, Poultry, Potatoes or vegetable products like Schnitzel (flat whole muscle products), Nuggets Burgers, Fish Fingers, Croquettes and YOUR PRODUCT.
