Innovative Oven Technology

The biscuit, cookie and cracker industry has trusted Thomas L. Green ovens for more than 120 years. The PRISM OVEN is designed to enhance product consistency. Features include:

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

When your product line involves pretzels, bread snacks, potato chips and other crisp baked snacks, the flexible Reading Pretzel SPECTRUM OVEN® offers the same flexibility as the PRISM OVEN and features:

  • Radiation, convection and conduction heat transfer options
  • Repeatable control of time, temperature, humidity and type of heat transfer
  • Separate heating zones for more precise control
  • Stainless steel interior construction

A separate optional Multi-Pass Dryer provides faster oven speeds, greater production throughput, and more process control. The Dryer efficiently reduces product core moistures, improving overall quality and storage characteristics.
