Oven Performance Optimization & Upgrades
- Performance Optimization
An oven is the most costly item in a pet food line: maintaining or upgrading to optimum levels makes a substantial contribution to plant profitability and effectiveness. Baker Perkins has a programme of services to enhance oven efficiency, and add the latest technology upgrades to installed equipment.
We hold full records of all Baker Perkins, APV Baker and Werner Lehara ovens. We take complete responsibility for oven audits and upgrade programmes, from discussions and proposals through process engineering and upgrade programmes to re-commissioning. OEM components match the original or updated specification to ensure maximum performance.
Ensuring an oven functions to its optimum settings pays dividends by maximizing product quality and productivity, and minimizing production and energy costs. Baker Perkins’ unrivalled baking capabilities have been exploited to develop programmes optimizing performance to and beyond the original specification
Energy audits and consumption reduction
As energy costs climb, so does the value of operating an oven at the most economic energy level. We have developed energy audit and consumption saving programmes that will shrink fuel bills. We also offer upgrades bringing additional power savings.
Control system upgrades for ovens
Applying PLC technology to an oven brings control benefits that can provide payback in less than a year. Superior process control ensures consistent application of optimal oven settings, leading to reduced downtime, energy, waste and labour.
Line capacity increases
Baker Perkins expertise can squeeze extra capacity from an existing line, or add significantly to throughput by extending the oven. We specify and engineer bespoke solutions that match each individual system and output requirement
Flexiflame ribbon burners for Direct Gas Fired ovens
The Flexiflame burner maximizes heat balance across and down DGF ovens. This ensures an even bake, and avoids scrap. The burners are compatible with new and existing ovens and commonly used fuels. They can be retrofitted easily to existing ovens. A survey can be arranged through the Customer Services department to assess individual requirements.
Recirc oven door upgrade kits
Large aperture doors offer ready access for easy cleaning, inspection and maintenance. Maximum insulation means minimal heat loss, improving baking uniformity and increasing energy efficiency.
