Do you eat your schnitzel plain or prefer it breaded? With our battering machine, you’ll apply different liquid coating materials to the food to be processed and get, for example, crispy schnitzel and succulent mozzarella sticks that way. 

Battering is mainly used in combination with predusting/flouring and/or breading. The process is most frequently used to apply an adhesive layer for the subsequent breadcrumbs. Through the use of powerful pumps, it is possible to process both thin and thick batterings. The wet panade also serves as a carrier of salts, spices, and flavorings, making your product tasty and succulent.

So many possible uses: With our battering machine, liquid materials of various viscosity can be applied to your products. The top-performance pump system coats schnitzel, fish sticks, etc. completely and evenly on all sides with batter or light marinades. Excess coating on the top or bottom of the product can easily be removed through an adjustable blower system and integrated material return system. That way, our battering machine also saves resources. 

Perfectly suitable for schnitzel, mozzarella sticks, fish sticks, cordon bleu, plant-based food, vegetables, and other special applications.
