Cookie Baking

The Thomas L. Green PRISM OVEN is a flexible single-pass baking platform that offers both recirculation and convection baking zones for cookies, crackers or biscuits for balanced and consistent quality, color, taste and texture.

Make the most of both zones with product development and “cooking” in the recirculation zone and efficient moisture removal and coloring in the convection zone. Customers appreciate the oven’s capacity for repeatable control of time, temperature, humidity and type of heat transfer.

To explore the capabilities of the PRISM OVEN, visit our Science & Innovation Center, a fully equipped, licensed research and development facility which offers a complete process line where customers can duplicate conditions they might encounter in full-scale production.

For flexibility and easy product changeovers, we offer a 600mm wide x 10.5m long PRISM OVEN that is capable of baking a wide variety of products. The oven features two convection oven zones with electric radiant elements.

After baking, the product is transferred to a 600mm wide x 3.7m long dryer that can be configured as single or multi-pass. The Oven and Dryer are individually controlled using a remote OIT control station.

For measuring and recording the type of heat required to bake a product, visitors to the Science & Innovation Center have access to the Reading Thermal SCORPION® Data Logging Measurement System. The system senses and records conditions in processing ovens, such as airflow, humidity, heat flux and temperature. It’s an excellent tool for analyzing the product baking curve and useful for scaling up products from the Innovation Center to the conditions of a full-scale production system.

Our experienced engineers are on hand to help you discreetly test new machinery and processing techniques; validate new ingredients; conduct shelf-life studies; research profitable innovations in mixing, forming, baking and drying; and produce market samples for evaluation and testing.
