Versatile Topping Applicator Maximizes Performance

Columbus, Ohio - Grote's AP Series Waterfall Topping Applicator automatically and evenly applies a wide variety of toppings including shredded cheese, dry ingredients, and individually quick frozen (IQF) meats and vegetables onto pizza crusts, French bread or bagels. With its cantilevered frame and open channel-welded construction, the AP Series applicator offers superior sanitary design and maximizes performance.

Built for the most demanding food processing environments, the AP Series applicator is manufactured of rugged, corrosion-resistant stainless steel and utilizes FDA compatible thermoplastics in all food and splash zones. Available in three standard widths (20", 30" and 40"), the hopper and pass-through conveyor belts are easily removable in less than five minutes for daily cleaning. Both conveyors include stainless steel bearings, motors and gearboxes as standard features.

The waterfall topping applicator offers several innovative design features which optimize efficiency and performance. Grote's unique hopper rake system utilizes round tines to deliver better product distribution and less product damage over a wide range of toppings. In addition, the flinger wheel offers compound adjustability for superior trajectory control of toppings over the full range of IQF products.

For maximum efficiency, Grote offers an optional three belt return conveyor system to recapture, recirculate and reload excess topping ingredients into the hopper. Other options include an adjustable height rake assembly with indicator scale and single point adjustment, and automatic hopper level control.
