Baker Perkins has upgraded its 590 heavy-duty rotary moulder to a TruClean™ design to comply with the latest industry standards on hygiene.
The TruClean 590™ is primarily used for rotary moulding large, difficult products, particularly pet foods, and is stronger and more powerful than a standard rotary moulder to cope with the extra work required to form these products.
TruClean™ criteria include accumulating the minimum amount of debris, good visibility into all areas, and being able to clean the machine easily and effectively. Three specification levels allow the machine to meet the hygiene requirements and cleaning methods of individual customers.
The TruClean 590™ rotary moulder is ideally suited for products that are difficult to make on a conventional moulder. Pet food products are often large and thick, made from developed dough and include abrasive ingredients such as bone meal.
They require tight control of process parameters to maintain quality; heavy-duty construction and components are necessary to handle them at high speed. The moulding roll and feed roll are large diameter and the knife assembly robust and fully adjustable, horizontally and vertically, during operation.
The TruClean 590™ provides the high levels of efficiency and reliability with low running costs common to all Baker Perkins’ machinery High efficiency and precise weight control minimize waste; ease of cleaning, ease of use and fast changeover reduce downtime and labour.
Baker Perkins holds a unique position in the baked pet food and treats market as the only company capable of supplying complete production lines, from mixing through to baking.
The TruClean 590™ rotary moulder is part of the complete array of Baker Perkins forming equipment for cookies, crackers and biscuits which has been upgraded in order to lower costs and improve hygiene, while maintaining outstanding levels of quality.
Other Baker Perkins rotary moulders include the standard TruClean™ machine, which handles a wide range of moulded and sandwich cookies and the Series2, designed to cope with higher outputs.
Every aspect of the TruClean™ machines has been reworked to meet or exceed the rising hygiene standards expected by the industry and demanded by regulators. All are in accordance with the GMA’s 10 Principles of Equipment Design, and other relevant industry guidelines. At the same time, all incorporate the accuracy, reliability and easy-to-use standards associated with previous generation Baker Perkins machines.
