Ease of Process Management and Maintenance

PLC-controlled baking processes benefit from easily-accessible stored product recipes and implementation of product change-over using via the HMI touch screen interface.
Maintenance is improved by the PLC's capability to monitor and diagnose problems so that predictive maintenance can be performed minimizing process downtimes and loss of product.
Advanced process diagnostic tools can include process parameter trending and alarm histories.

PLC control upgrades are available to replace old and antiquated system control panels.

Burners are high capacity ribbon burners utilizing natural, propane, or manufactured gasses. Burners are available in various lengths and ribbon configurations with capacities from 200 to 3,000 BTUs per inch of burner flame space.

In addition to standard ribbon burners, multi-zone burners feature a manifold assembly that enables you to adjust and balance the lateral heat across the oven zone.

Complete burner assembly can include the following:

  • Heavy pipe ribbon burner
  • Multi-zone Lateral Heat Adjustment Assembly
  • Burner Head plate assembly with:
    • Igniter locking collar
    • Flame observation port
    • Headplate gasket
  • Air/gas mixer
  • 2-Way Orifice Cock
  • Burner mounted igniter “S” bracket
  • Igniter
  • Drip shield(s)

SmartBake® Rectification Ignitors:

Rec Ignitor

The SmartBake® rectification ignitor is designed to provide highly reliable ribbon burner ignition when used with a DSI system on both existing and new direct fired ovens. It is simple to install and adjust. Your (Ignitor?) settings and positioning are maintained through all oven operating conditions.

The rectification ignitor is constructed to spark to itself, direct fuel to the burner’s ignition point and facilitates rectification burner flame status monitoring. The SmartBake® rectification ignitor’s design allows independent adjustment of the ignition spark gap and provides a favorable flame rectification environment through all burner firing rates.

Rec Ignitor

Benefits and Features:

  • Easy to view and adjust ignitor positioning and spark
  • Less susceptible to graphite lubrication contamination
  • Gimbaled mounting fixture maintains burner ignitor spacing as the burner bows with heat
  • Long service life ignitor material
  • Constructed to allow ignitor assembly thermal expansion and contraction
  • Standard Rajah ignition cable connectors
  • Fits most oven ribbon burner application
  • Fits all traditional Baker-Perkins and APV style head plates
  • Fits left- or right-hand ovens
