Continuous Mixers: Continuous mixing offers customers a number of advantages over batch mixing depending upon their products, processes, recipes, and other factors. The biggest advantage in all applications is the ability to produce more consistent dough and, therefore, a more consistent finished product. Exact Mixing Continuous Mixers come in all sizes, from 50 to 10,000 kg/hour, and are available based primarily on dough moisture levels or dough mixing stages.

Sheeters: Thomas L. Green has been a trusted partner to the biscuit, cracker and snack crisps industries for over 125 years, supplying innovative, reliable, and cost-effective sheeting equipment. Our 2-Roll, 3-Roll and 4-Roll Sheeters produce hole-free sheets of uniform density to ready the dough for forming, lamination or further reduction. Consistent sheet thickness is controlled by the distance between the rolls that compress the dough (which is adjustable).

Extruders: The Reading Pretzel Low Pressure (LP) Extruder enables customers to create a variety of structural, flat and filled extruded and co-extruded shapes and sticks.It was recently redesigned with augers that deliver more product flow with less work. Our Filled Stick Extrusion System creates sticks filled with soft fillings, such as chocolate, peanut butter or cheese, and the Fried Snack Extruder creates fried snacks such as potato rings, potato sticks, and ethnic noodles.

Rotary Moulder: The Thomas L. Green Rotary Moulder efficiently produces high definition, three dimensional shapes by pressing dough into a die roll. Operator controls are intuitive and allow for complete automation of the moulding process.

Ovens: The Thomas L. Green PRISM OVEN has been trusted in the biscuit, cookie and cracker industry for more than a century. A flexible single-pass baking platform, it is designed to enhance product consistency. The Reading Pretzel SPECTRUM OVEN® offers the same flexibility as the PRISM OVEN for baking pretzels, bread snacks, baked crisps and potato snacks.
