Batter application is important for perfect coated products. The GEA OptiCoater, batter applicator, uses a four-layer batter curtain. This gives full coverage of the top of the products with a small dip construction for the bottom. You can fine-tune the process to suit your application by changing the position of the batter curtain and belt speed. This will give you ideal adhesion for breading. Easy operation. Robust design. Highly reliable. Proven worldwide.
The main product applications for GEA OptiCoater are: poultry products (boneless and bone-in), pork cutlets, meat replacement products and vegetables. This efficient and accurate batter applicator can also marinate pork tenderloins and spare ribs. Everything at high capacity.
High quality products with guaranteed even batter pick-up
Maximum production uptime
A self-emptying drain underneath the batter applicator gives extremely short changeover times. Engineers can open the blower easily for inspection and cleaning without additional tools. There are no hoses between the pump and curtain, just quick-release pipes. These have no loose parts and give maximum access and clear inspection. The gas, spring-loaded belt construction gives full and easy access to all the machine interior surfaces.
A conveyor belt carries the product through a four-layer curtain of batter to ensure full coverage of the top. A small dip construction coats the bottom of the product. Alternatively, you can use a bottom flow box to ensure irregular products are coated completely. The conveyor belt speed can be adjusted by a frequency converter. An adjustable valve in the supply line sets the correct quantity of batter. A specially designed hygienic blower removes excess batter on the upper product side. A scraper or an additional bottom blower pipe removes excess batter from the bottom surface. The bottom blower pipe is optional depending on the application. The blower volume and frequency can be adjusted to suit the application.
