Advanced technology

Minimal crumb breakage

Every aspect of the CrumbMaster’s design is aimed at generating as little mechanical stress on the crumbs as possible. Slides transport the crumbs without the use of conveyors or screws and a special frame design avoids crushing the crumbs.

Patented crumb divider

To achieve a consistent composition of the coating, and avoid uneven coating of products, the CrumbMaster includes a patented sieve system. However, by exchanging divider plates it is also possible to apply different crumb compositions to the top and the bottom of the breaded products.

Optimum coating adhesion

A conveyor belt carries the products to be breaded through a bottom layer of breading, while the top coating is applied from a hopper above. An extra-long breading bed, together with an adjustable pressure roller, ensures optimum coating adhesion. At the end of the process, excess crumbs are blown off and returned to the circulation system.
