NEW: Flour-free bread dough forming system

Baker Perkins introduced a new bread dough forming system at IBIE in Las Vegas in October. A key feature is flour-free operation that eliminates dust from this part of the bakery, with a reduction in operational, cleaning and maintenance costs, and the elimination of cross-contamination risk.

 

The system comprises divider, rounder, flour free conveyor/resting system, and a Multitex4™ moulder. The system was shown with a Baker Perkins Accurist2.1™ ram-and-knife divider and conical rounder, but is equally compatible with an extrusion divider and bar rounder.

No flour dusting is required on any part of the process. Even the stickiest dough pieces are prevented from adhering to the rounder, conveyors and moulder by a combination of process conditions, equipment design and choice of materials. Not only does this reduce ingredient, cleaning and maintenance costs, it also removes a hazard from the bakery atmosphere.

 

Baker Perkins’ Multitex4™ moulder handles the dough pieces very gently, which gives bakers precise control over the final structure of the loaf. This gentle handling preserves the cell structure developed in the mixer, so the dough proves and bakes well to achieve the required shape, volume, colour and softness while using less yeast and improvers. With the same recipe, these quality characteristics may be improved.

Hygienic operation and rapid repeatable changeovers contribute to exceptionally high operational efficiency. Production costs are further reduced because the gentle handling eliminates the sticking and smearing that lead to jams and means that a lot less cleaning and maintenance are necessary.
