Turnkey Production Systems
RBS manufactures and installs complete turnkey production systems that feature the latest technology and can help customers efficiently and profitably produce baked snacks.
The modern, high volume Cracker System, for example, 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.
The Multi-Crisp Baked Snack System enables you to produce a variety of wheat, potato, multi-grain and corn masa flour crisps on one flexible system. The system can produce between 250-1000 kg/hr of finished product, depending on the number of oven sections after the dough sheeting equipment.
Continuous Mixing Solutions
Our Exact Continuous Mixers come in all sizes, ranging from 50 to 10,000 kg/hour, and are available based primarily on dough moisture levels or dough mixing stages, for example:
- Exact MX Continuous Mixer is our most versatile mixer and can be used for a wide range of products including cookies, snacks, pizza, batters, icings, and pastes.
- Exact EX Continuous Mixer is an excellent choice for low-absorption, stiff, wheat-based doughs, such as crackers, bagels, pretzels, pizza, sweet goods and pet treats.
- Exact HDX Continuous Mixer is well-suited to ultra-high absorption doughs for buns, breads, rolls, English muffins or tortillas.
- Exact FX Continuous Mixer is a high-intensity mixer that can be used to produce potato-, corn- and rice-based products and specialty baked snacks, such as fabricated potato chips.
The Reading Pretzel SPECTRUM OVEN® offers radiation, convection and conduction heat transfer options in a single modular design, making it ideally suited for balanced and consistent baking of extruded pretzels and snacks, baked snack crisps from potato, wheat, multi-grain or corn masa flour doughs, and pet treats.
The Thomas L. Green PRISM OVEN has been trusted in the biscuit, cookie and cracker industry for more than a century. The flexible single-pass baking platform offers Direct Gas Fired (DGF) Zones, Emithermic (Radiant / Convection) Zones and Convection Zones.
