A beltless applicator of particulate materials includes a differential-impulse linear conveyor that has a horizontal pan carrying a bed of particulate materials and food products spaced along it. Particulate materials are supplied from above to coat the food products as the pan conveys them to a subsequent treatment station. Hammer-like tamping of the products ensures good adhesion of the coatings. Excess particulate materials are recycled.
