Different types of Biscuit Making Machinery

Biscuits are manufactured with the help of various types of machinery. Some of the Biscuit Making Machinery includes-

Dough mixer

Dough mixer is used for kneading dough of large quantities. The dough mixers are electrical appliances and consist of various controls, timers to suit the needs of the user. These dough mixers have some special features like the center of the bowl consists of a kneading bar, bowl reverse, low speed, high speed which can be combined in a single program. There are various types of dough mixers which include vertical detachable bowl mixer, horizontal high speed mixers, Z blade twin bladed horizontal high speed mixer etc. The various sizes of the mixers include continuous mixers, automatic small batch mixer etc.

Rotary Moulder

The machine which uses short dough to fabricate biscuit dough pieces is known as a rotary moulder. The dough is used to force into molds which are completed with name, patterns, docker holes and type. The knife is used to scrap off the excess dough bearing upon the mould and then the dough piece is extracted onto a web of cotton fabric or cotton canvas. Short dough are used to sheet, gauge and cut with a cutter of embossing types. The advantages of rotary moulder are-
  • There lies no need to support and form a dough sheet.
  • Cutter scrap dough is not there which can be recycled.
  • Control and difficulties of gauging are

Dough extrusion machine

Dough extrusion machines consist of a hopper present over the two rolls system which is used to force the dough into a balancing or pressure chamber beneath. The rolls can run intermittently or continuously and are capable of reverse motion of short period which makes the pressure chamber base nozzle or suck buck at the die and relieve the pressure. The dough is forced intermittently or continuously out of the pressure chamber.

Biscuit baking oven
 
Biscuit baking ovens are available in different designs. A tunnel oven is used to bake most of the biscuits. Some ovens are there which are static and the trays of dough pieces are put into the oven manually and after a suitable time interval these are removed.  The ovens are made up of various independently controlled and heated zones.  There are 3 or 4 zones in a typical configuration. The provisions of zones provide different heat applications, temperatures and extraction conditions which are provided when biscuits are baked from dough pieces.

Biscuit sandwiching machines

Biscuit sandwiching is the secondary process of biscuit manufacturing. Creaming machines operate on the stencil principle. These machines are intermittent in action which facilitates the biscuit location underneath the stencil so that the biscuit is filled with the stencil hole and when the biscuit is removed to the topping station there the top of the biscuit is used for sandwiching by pressing another biscuit on top of the cream. Multi-nozzled depositors are also used for cream application of biscuits besides stenciling. A wide conveyor is used for sandwiching of cake batter type. The head of the depositor is lowered which travels in continuous motion with the biscuit. Suction systems are present which deposits cream where necessary which is adjusted by the depositing pipe pressure and individual nozzle construction.
