Working principle
A conveyor belt submerged the product by an adjustable top conveyor to ensure they are completely dipped in tempura or batter. The design of the top and main conveyor is such that no product transfers take place inside the machine. This ensures maximum flexibility
for products and reduces the damage of products to the bear minimum. Frequency converter can adjust the conveyor belt speed. Adjustable bottom layer former for optimum bottom coverage for difficult -hollow- products. A special designed hygienic blower blows off excess tempura or batter on upper product side, where as excess tempura or batter on the bottom is taken off by a scraper or an additional bottom blower pipe. Blower volume is frequency controlled and can be adjusted to suit the application.

• Submerges the product by an adjustable top conveyor
