Efficient batter usage

The GEA WetCoater works effectively with a minimum quantity of batter in the machine. This means only a small amount of batter is used to start the machine and while changing to a different batter. This also ensures even product coverage by keeping the temperature of the batter under control.

Even batter coverage

When the products leave the machine, excess batter is blown off and returned to the process . The air supply and air distribution to the top and bottom is adjustable. Even coverage is guaranteed by efficiently changing the position and angle of the blower.
