Banner-Day Bakery Solutions

U.S. Patent No. 8,747,103


Banner-Day, a leader in oven performance optimization, developed Far Side Sensing®, which provides reliable flame detection on ribbon burners at the end of the burner opposite the ignition source.


As the next step in flame detection, Far Side Sensing® complies with regulations in locations that require opposite side flame sensing, such as Canada, Europe and now in the United States meeting the new NFPA 86 Standard.

Meets NFPA 86 Standard

The value of this feature for bakers in locations requiring opposite side flame sensing is that they can now fulfill this regulatory requirement and implement long desired improved temperature and lateral heat provisions in their ovens. This is an important advancement as it enables bakers in the United States, Canada, Europe and other markets to upgrade their existing ovens to meet NFPA 86, CSA Code B149.3-00 Section A.4.6.12(a) and clears the way for implementation of measures to improve their bake productivity.  B-D is uniquely positioned to provide this advanced opposite side sensing solution for bakery ovens to meet these global regulations.

Far Side Sensing® is a versatile burner enhancement with a robust design that can be incorporated into both OEM ovens and upgrade installations with existing or planned DSI systems and oven automation projects.

• DSI system is a prerequisite to the installation of Far Side Sensing®
• Requires no additional oven modification when replacing or upgrading existing burners
• Easy to install
