Banner-Day

Banner-Day is a specialist in oven performance, combustion, automation and SmartBake® control systems for the baking industry. Grounded in combustion engineering and design, with over 120 years of combined engineering and design experience, Banner-Day possesses an intimate knowledge of the complete workings of bakery ovens and the baking process.

Bakers that are frustrated with ovens that bake poorly, are unreliable, inefficient, unsafe and waste energy will find that Banner-Day can help improve oven performance through oven assessment and recommendations that can include oven repair, implementing an oven automating oven control solution, that will increase oven productivity and safety while reducing energy consumption and emissions. Banner-Day understands and appreciates the unique environment associated with baking, where bakers are dealing with dynamic fresh products and have limited opportunity to produce and maintain inventory. It is this unique circumstance that demands flexible, tight and precisely controlled oven temperatures, reliability as well as consistency throughout the baking process.

Increased Pipe Heating Performance & Reliability

Materials flow easily through a Banner-Day TraceFREE® Electric Impedance Pipe Heating system. The heating system is engineered by Banner-Day so the piping system itself is the actual heating element, heating pipes made from stainless steel, carbon steel, galvanized steel or exotic piping and tubing, as well as the material flowing through them.

The impedance system heats the pipe and material flowing through the pipe under several circumstances: heat piping and solid material from ambient to the desired temperature; gradually increase the temperature of the product as it moves through the pipe; and, maintain a constant temperature as the product flows through the pipe.

TraceFREE® Systems are built to NEC and IEEE standards, the electric Impedance heated pipe transport system is designed with low voltage energy source that preheat and maintain temperatures from ambient to temperatures over 1400°F. Tight temperature tolerances are kept by means of digital temperature control.

With limited preventive maintenance requirements, the reliability and dependability of the Banner-Day TraceFREE® Electric Impedance Pipe Heating system ensures a stable and minimal life cycle cost on the overall system.

Banner-Day Provides Improved Product Quality and Consistency

  • Precise Heat Flux / Temperature Control

  • Consistent Bake Profile by Product
    • Precise Control by Recipe
  • Minimize Lateral Color/Bake Variations

  • Minimize Flash Heat
    • Eliminate Temperature Override

  • Correct Balance of Top and Bottom Bake
    • Reduce Stand-by Loses

  • Coloraider Profile to Match Bake Profile
    • Facilitates Product Change Over
    • Consistency

 

Critical to the Banner-Day / Customer relationship is not how much the bakery spends, but rather how well they spend it. Banner-Day focuses on the “how well” – balancing capital spending with the customer‘s demand for quality and performance requirements. The value of Banner-Day’s engineering services and integrated oven control solutions is in the ability of the bakery to expand capacity and enable them to offer new, higher quality and higher value products. This can be done through a retrofit process to upgrade the bakery’s existing ovens or by specifying Banner-Day when designing a completely new oven. In the latter case, Banner-Day will work with you and your used oven equipment supplier or OEM to ensure you achieve the oven performance you demand.

Understand Baking Processes -
SmartBake® An Intelligent Way to Bake!

Ovens with “constant spark” ignition systems require manual shutoff of the gas cock at each individual burner prior to purge, and manual opening of the same cocks to light the oven following purge. Further, each individual burner must be visually checked to confirm that the burner is lit. Banner-Day’s SmartBake® system automates oven ignition and significantly reduces operator labor required to light and monitor the oven. Oven burner status can be verified at the SmartBake® system HMI touch screen.

Banner-Day understands processes and engineers equipment and systems to optimize results. This is critical in increasing product quality, reducing the total cost of ownership and providing the opportunity to reduce product and operating costs.
