Blog: Avoiding the low-cost moulder trap
An upgraded bread dough divider with improved scaling accuracy, already amongst the world’s best, was introduced by Baker Perkins at Gulfood in Dubai, February 25 to 28, 2013 (Sheikh Saeed Hall – UK Pavilion). The Accurist2.1™ retains all the features that enabled the original machines to offer a unique combination of sustained scaling accuracy and gentle dough handling.
Mixing and forming systems from Baker Perkins enable high-outpit plant bakeries to meet increasing market demand for high quality premium bread. The equipment range includes Tweedy™ mixers, Accurist 2.1™ dividers and Multitex4™ moulders, all designed to handle the dough gently and carefully.
The Accurist2.1™ features an innovative Intelligent Dough Weight Control system which reduces the average dough piece scaling weight by adjusting the divider in real time to compensate for changes in dough density. The system reacts to the gradual changes that occur over the life of a batch as well as the sudden changes that occur when a new mix is dropped into the divider.
Working in conjunction with feedback from the checkweigher, the system maintains dough piece weights within tighter limits reducing giveaway and enabling the target weight to be reduced.
The Accurist2.1™ also includes a new oiling system with improved performance. An upgraded filtration system keeps the circulating oil clean while a new pumping and dosing arrangement ensures it is delivered accurately and consistently. Improved oil pathways in the ram provide reliable distribution enabling the divider to run for extended periods.
Maximum output has been raised from 9,000 to 10,800 pieces per hour. Plants up to this capacity can now run with one divider, rounder and intermediate proofer instead of two.
Additional improvements include a new lightweight die which reduces running costs by extending the cleaning interval, reducing oil consumption and having a longer life.
