Continuous Mixing for Crackers

RBS has recently developed continuous mixing for the snack cracker industry. The Exact EX Continuous Mixer uniformly mixes products with a variety of dough moisture levels, reduces lay time, eliminates dough troughs, and reduces labor and energy, thanks to full automation.The EX Mixer offers dough production rates from 100 to 10,000 kg/hour.

Sheeting & Laminating Solutions

The 2-roll, 3-roll, or 4-Roll Sheeter produce a hole-free sheet at a uniform density, critical to automated packaging systems after the oven. The thickness of the sheet is controlled by the distance between the rolls (which is adjustable). The rolls compress the dough into a single sheet with consistent characteristics and thickness.

Also consider the Thomas L. Green Servo-Cut Sheet Laminator or In-Line Laminator to accurately cut, stack and deliver sheets of dough for unique product textures. The precise and gentle placement of cut sheets provides uniform dough density at both the edges and center of the finished cracker sheet for consistency. Dough sheeters may be installed to the side, or directly above, the Laminator for a compact and efficient production layout.

Baking Solutions for Crackers

Bakers in the cracker, cookie, and biscuit industries have relied upon the Thomas L. Green PRISM OVEN for over 125 years. The flexible single-pass baking platform is designed to enhance product consistency. Features include:

  • Direct gas fired (DGF), convection, and Emithermic (radiant / convection) baking zones
  • Repeatable control of time, temperature, humidity and type of heat transfer
  • Better baking efficiency with uniform quality, color, taste and texture

The PRISM OVEN is available as an individual piece of equipment or as part of Reading Bakery System’s modern, high volume Cracker System, which enables you to create straight sheeted, dual sheeted, and laminated crackers. Sheeting systems can range from 600mm to 1.5m in width, and production volumes range from 200-5500 kg/hr depending on oven length, width and product type.

Maintain the best possible oven conditions by monitoring performance with the industry standard SCORPION® 2 Data Logging Measurement System. This powerful tool provides valuable data by measuring temperature, air velocity, heat flux, and humidity in real-time, enabling our customers to optimize the conditions they need to produce the very best biscuits.
