Sprinkling, Spreading & Depositing

Vibratory Sprinklers can be used to apply toppings to a full width slab, or interchangeable laned guides can be fitted to guide your toppings to the right lane spaces, significantly reducing wastage. Our Depositor add-on allows you to drop a batch of you topping onto indexing conveyors, further reducing waste.

Key benefits

Podmores Sprinklers & Depositors have been specially developed to help you achieve your quality and topping requirements with minimal operator assistance. Featuring an easy to operate touchscreen HMI you can simply adjust and save the perfect setting for your needs.
