Biscuit Forming Solutions

Our Thomas L. Green brand has been supplying commercial biscuit equipment since 1893.

For hard biscuits, the Thomas L. Green 3-Roll Sheeter generates a consistent dough sheet ready for further thickness reduction or lamination. Gauging Stations then ensure a gentle reduction in sheet thickness by a 2:1 ratio prior to shape forming. Dough flow is accurately controlled to maintain dough density, laminations and finished product weights.

If your production involves high definition, three dimensional soft biscuits, the Thomas L. Green Rotary Moulder features an interchangeable die roll made of engraved brass that can be supplied with segmented rings for multiple shapes. Operator controls are intuitive and allow for complete automation of the moulding process.

Distinct shapes can be formed by the Thomas L. Green Rotary Cutting Station which accurately and continuously cuts product shapes out of a single dough sheet. An integrated conveyor system moves product through, and is pressured against, a rotating die assembly. Operators can adjust the pressure on the dough sheet during operation to ensure a thorough cut and consistent piece production.

Biscuit Baking Solutions

The Thomas L. Green PRISM OVEN is ideal for biscuit, cracker and cookie production with a single-pass baking platform that’s designed to enhance consistency and deliver uniform quality, color, taste and texture.

The PRISM OVEN offers direct gas fired (DGF), convection, and Emithermic (radiant / convection) baking zones, and each zone is available with a variety of options that will create a cost-effective system with a combination of radiation, convection heating and conduction.

The oven is valued worldwide for repeatable control of time, temperature, humidity, and type of heat transfer, and its capacity for improving the uniform color, taste, texture and quality of products.
