Ed Tostenrud, General Manager
Trident has been using FPS breaders for nearly six years to create Panko-coated products for a variety of high-profile QSR, club store and retail customers. We have confidence in FPS products ourselves, and one of our largest customers specifically calls out the use of the FPS Compact Breader in the creation of the fish portions it serves. FPS’s augerless design preserves the texture and appearance of the delicate Panko crumb. That same predictable performance has freed Trident’s own R&D staff to develop products using coatings that simply weren’t feasible before. With no hydraulics, FPS equipment is a huge improvement over systems we’ve used in the past.
Brakebush Brothers, Inc.
Brakebush operates FPS’s Compact Breader in 15-hour stretches, three days per week, while processing up to 10,000 lbs. of marinated wings per hour. For this particular product, we use the Compact Breader in the pre-dust position, but because of the machine’s augerless design, we have also used it successfully with ABC and J-Crumb. The Compact Breader is easy to move, clean and operate.
