Soft Dough Biscuits

1. High Speed Mixer

Dough is mixed with a unique, shafless mixing blade that ensures good dispersion of ingredients. Mixed dough is automatically discharged into a dough feed system or tub. In many facilities, the mixer is located on the floor above the main line: mixed dough is discharged into the dough feed through a floor chute.

2. Rotary Moulder

Specialist dies and rolls set the product size, shape, weight and thickness, as well as imparting the manufacturer’s unique design or branding.

390 & TruClean™ Rotary Moulders - produces a full range of soft-dough moulded biscuits and sandwich cookies.

Series2 Rotary Moulder - produces soft-dough moulded biscuits and sandwich cookies at high outputs in environments where close control of size, weight and texture are essential.

3. TruBake™ Convection Oven

Baking is achieved by jets of hot air directed onto the product from plenum chambers above and below the band. The air is heated by a single burner in each zone and, once spent, is recirculated with a proportion being exhausted to maintain bake chamber humidity. High pressure in the plenum chambers ensures even distribution of air across the band, providing an even bake.
