Carbon Steel Bakery Belts for Continuous Ovens

Bakery Belts

Bake Oven Bands

PACE SBS can supply steel belts capable of withstanding the high loads of mechanical and thermal stress typically occurring during the production of baked goods. Carbon steel bake oven belts are subjected to frequent temperature changes and a high number of load cycles, steel belts made in Berndorf always perfectly retain their shape and flatness. As the central element of the belts, the special carbon steel we use, is subjected to an elaborate tempering process during production, which gives the belts the tensile strength and surface quality required for their demanding applications in continuous ovens.

Allowing for operating temperatures of up to 400 °C | 752 °F, CARBO 13 has proven to be the material of choice. Its dark surface also absorbs heat, saves energy and ensures consistent product quality. Falling into the two categories of smooth and perforated endless belts, Berndorf belts are a possible alternative to wire mesh belts.

The abrasion-resistant and easy-to-clean steel belt surfaces show that the conversion of the belt to steel can bring many advantages. PACE SBS complements their products with an extensive set of services: From steel belt installations, repairs and inspections of belts and systems to the planning of new installations to upgrades of existing machines.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are bakery continuous oven belts made from?

Continuous oven belts used in bakery equipment are typically made from materials that can withstand high temperatures and provide durability for continuous use in industrial baking processes. The specific materials can vary depending on the manufacturer and the intended application, but some common materials used for bakery continuous oven belts include:

➢   Stainless Steel: Stainless steel is a popular choice due to its resistance to corrosion and ability to maintain its strength and shape at high temperatures. It is often used for baking bread, pizza, and other products.

➢   Wire Mesh: Wire mesh belts are commonly used in conveyor ovens for baking products like cookies, biscuits, and pastries. They provide good airflow and heat distribution.

➢   Teflon (PTFE): Teflon-coated conveyor belts are suitable for applications where non-stick properties are required, such as baking items with high sugar content like pastries and cakes. Teflon provides a smooth surface that prevents sticking and eases product release.

➢   Carbon Steel: Carbon steel belts are used in some industrial baking applications due to their durability and strength. However, they are typically coated with a heat-resistant material to prevent rusting and sticking.

It's important to note that the choice of material depends on various factors, including the specific baking process, the type of products being baked, and the desired characteristics of the continuous oven belt, such as non-stick properties and heat resistance. Manufacturers may also use combinations of these materials or add coatings to achieve the desired performance and longevity for their oven belts. The selection of the appropriate material is crucial to ensure the quality and efficiency of the bakery's production process.

What are the key benefits of continuous oven bands for the bakery industry?

Continuous oven belts are an essential component in the bakery industry, and they offer several key benefits that help streamline the baking process and improve product quality. Here are some of the key benefits of using continuous oven belts in the bakery industry:

➢   Consistent Baking: Continuous oven belts provide a uniform and consistent heat distribution throughout the baking process. This ensures that baked goods are evenly cooked, reducing the likelihood of undercooked or overcooked products.

➢   Increased Productivity: Continuous oven belts allow for a continuous and automated baking process, which can significantly increase production efficiency. They enable bakeries to bake large quantities of products in a shorter amount of time compared to batch baking methods.

➢   Versatility: These belts are adaptable to a wide range of bakery products, including bread, pastries, cookies, and cakes. Adjustments can be made to the belt speed, temperature, and other parameters to accommodate different recipes and product types.

➢   Energy Efficiency: Continuous oven belts are designed to maximize energy efficiency. They often feature insulation and advanced heating elements to reduce energy consumption while maintaining consistent baking temperatures.

➢   Space Optimization: Continuous oven belts are space-efficient, as they can be designed to fit into tight spaces within a bakery facility. This helps bakery owners make the most of their available workspace.

➢   Reduced Labor Costs: Automation provided by continuous oven belts can reduce the need for manual labour in the baking process. This can lead to cost savings in terms of labour expenses.

➢   Improved Product Quality: The consistent and controlled baking environment provided by continuous oven belts helps maintain product quality. This includes uniform colour, texture, and taste across batches.

➢   Customisation: Manufacturers often offer customization options for continuous oven belts, allowing bakeries to tailor the equipment to their specific needs and product requirements.

➢   Hygiene and Sanitation: Many continuous oven belt systems are designed with food safety in mind. They are often easy to clean and maintain, ensuring that baked goods are produced in a hygienic environment.

➢   Quality Assurance: Continuous oven belts can include monitoring and control systems that allow bakeries to track and adjust baking parameters in real-time, ensuring product consistency and quality.

➢   Scalability: Bakeries can scale their production capacity by adding additional oven belts or expanding existing ones, making it easier to meet growing demand.

In summary, continuous oven belts are a crucial component in modern bakeries, providing consistent baking results, increased productivity, energy efficiency, and improved product quality. Their versatility and customization options make them an asset for bakeries of all sizes.

What products are most often produced on carbon steel oven belts?

Carbon steel oven belts are used in a variety of industrial baking applications due to their durability and strength, but they are often coated with a heat-resistant material to prevent rusting and sticking. The choice of coating can influence the types of products that are most often produced on carbon steel oven belts. Here are some products that are commonly produced using carbon steel conveyor belts with appropriate coatings:

➢   Biscuits and Cookies: Carbon steel belts with a food-grade coating, such as Teflon or silicone, are used for baking biscuits and cookies. The non-stick properties of the coating ensure easy product release.

➢   Crackers: Crackers are often baked on carbon steel belts with non-stick coatings, as they help prevent sticking and ensure even baking.

➢   Tortillas: Carbon steel conveyor belts with heat-resistant coatings are used in the production of tortillas, as they can withstand the high temperatures required for this process.

➢   Pizza Crusts: Carbon steel oven belts with suitable coatings are used to bake pizza crusts. The coating helps achieve the desired texture and prevents sticking.

➢   Pretzels: Pretzels are often baked on carbon steel belts with non-stick coatings, ensuring uniform browning and easy removal.

➢   Bagels: Bagels may be baked on carbon steel belts with appropriate coatings to achieve the desired texture and appearance.

➢   Bread Rolls: Some types of bread rolls are baked on carbon steel belts with heat-resistant coatings to ensure even baking and prevent sticking.

➢   Flatbreads: Flatbreads like pita and naan are baked on carbon steel belts with heat-resistant coatings to achieve the necessary crispness and appearance.

It's important to note that the choice of conveyor belt material and coating can vary depending on the specific requirements of the bakery and the type of product being produced. The goal is to select the combination that provides the best performance in terms of even baking, non-stick properties, and durability for the given application. Additionally, regular maintenance and cleaning are essential to extend the life of the carbon steel oven belts and maintain product quality.
