TruClean™ Gauge Roll
TruClean™ Gauge Rolls achieve and maintain the desired thickness of a sheet of biscuit dough. This is a key function in the forming and cutting process for cracker biscuits and hard sweet biscuits. Repeatable precision is matched by low operating costs, with labour, waste and maintenance kept to an absolute minimum. They are designed to meet the latest industry requirements for hygienic operation.
Low cost of ownership
The new design uses a proven process to ensure reliable operation, low waste and accurate performance. Features that contribute to precise weight control and reliable sheet handling have been enhanced.
Easy to operate
A clear and intuitive touch screen HMI includes indication and setting of all the main running adjustments. This is located on the machine to enable operators to see the effects of their adjustment on the dough sheet as they make them. The gauge roll is fully integrated into the line speed control system, which automatically cascades changes back down the line to maintain smooth operation.
Easy to clean and maintain
Three important principles form the basis of TruClean™ design: reducing accumulation of unwanted materials; improving visibility and access for cleaning; and simplifying the removal and replacement of components and assemblies without the need for tools or technicians.
Reduced waste, minimum downtime
These improved gauge rolls feature an arrangement of flanges, scrapers and take-off conveyors that reduce waste by fully supporting the dough sheet throughout. Positively-tracked cartridge take-off conveyors require no tracking adjustment and can be quickly removed from the machine for easy access and minimum downtime.
TruClean™ performance and choice
The radical TruClean™ approach to hygienic design is setting new standards. Less time spent cleaning means lower costs and faster changeovers. TruClean™ machines retain all the best-in-class process parameters and benefits of previous generation Baker Perkins equipment, including outstanding reliability, performance and ease of use.
Two levels of sanitation are available for every machine in the TruClean™ range. This allows customers to choose the one that best matches the sensitive cross-contact risks they face and the cleaning protocols they use.
