Power Dough Feeder
Power Dough Feeders are self-contained dough feed systems commonly used for feeding soft dough into wirecut machines or rotary moulders. They take bulk dough from the mixer and deliver an accurately metered, consistent feed of kibbled dough to the forming machine
Power Dough Feeders are directly coupled to the mixer and accept full mixes of dough directly into the receiving hopper. This has a slow moving full-width conveyor belt in the bottom that feeds the bulk dough into a pair of feed rolls that breaks up and partially sheets it. The dough pieces are then fed onto an inclined conveyor that takes them to the hopper of the forming machine
When used in conjunction with a Baker Perkins HS Mixer, the dough is transferred into the Power Dough Feeder without any manual intervention. Sensors in the forming machine hopper monitor dough level, enabling the control system to adjust the speed and, if necessary, stop the Power Dough Feeder. In this way a consistent head of dough is maintained in the hopper which helps to achieve accurate dough piece weight control.
Hygienic and Easy to Clean
Hygienic materials are used throughout and there is excellent access for cleaning. The bottom conveyor can be completely withdrawn from the machine and mounted on its own wheeled frame so that it can be removed from the production area for thorough cleaning. The sides of the hopper can be removed, leaving the frame completely exposed and accessible from both outside and inside.
