Provers

The first prover accepts dough pieces from the rounder and relaxes them to preserve their shape and provide a well-controlled feed to the moulders.   Removing stress from the dough ensures that it can be moulded without tearing and will prove and bake evenly.

First provers have a maximum output of 9,200 pieces per minute; a proof time range between one and 30 minutes; and a piece weight range from 200 to 2,200 kg.

Formers

The Baker Perkins Multitex4 sheets and moulds dough pieces for pans / tins. Gentle handling enables dough quality to be maintained while reducing the use of costly yeast and improvers. The dough is subjected to controlled, even tension, so it proves evenly and fills the pan well to give an attractive appearance and good crumb structure.

Weights range from 200 to 2,100 gram, and output is up to 6,000 pieces per hour, depending on weight.
