Gas Fired Oven

Reading Bakery Systems supplies world’s finest commercial gas fired oven systems to biscuit, cookie, cracker, pretzel, potato chip, bread snacks, and pet treats manufacturers around the globe.

We offer two primary oven brands – Thomas L. Green and Reading Pretzel – and can help you customize a commercial oven system to meet your unique production requirements. By incorporating our decades of experience with advanced materials and technology, our goal is to help customers solve their production challenges.

When purchasing commercial ovens, there are a number of factors to consider, such as fuel efficiency, production capacity, ease-of-use, floor space, cost-effectiveness, and whether the oven will improve performance and function and help you produce snack foods that conform to your precise specifications.

The Thomas L. Green PRISM OVEN is a single-pass baking platform designed to enhance consistency and deliver uniform quality, color, taste and texture for cookie, cracker and biscuit production. It offers direct gas fired, convection, and combination radiant/convection baking zones. Customers appreciate its capacity for repeatable control of time, temperature, humidity and type of heat transfer. And an extremely cost-effective system can be created with a combination of radiation, convection heating and conduction.

With the Reading Pretzel SPECTRUM OVEN®, customers who produce pet treats, pretzels and baked snack crisps benefit from an extremely flexible platform that offers a variety of heat transfer combinations in one modular design. The single-pass convection baking platform features operator-controlled air temperature, circulation speed, exhaust, and moisture removal for reliable, consistent baking. A kiln or dryer module may be combined with an oven module to create a space-efficient two-pass baking chamber.

Reading Bakery Systems strives to deliver energy efficient ovens by utilizing heat exchangers that use pre?heated exhaust air in convection baking zones; fuel flow meters to record fuel usage and identify opportunities for improvement; oven belts with lower mass densities; and downtime software during idle oven periods when no product is being processed.

Oven Performance

Maintain optimal process conditions by monitoring oven performance with the unique SCORPION® 2 Data Logging Measurement System. It is a powerful diagnostic and evaluation tool that contributes valuable data by measuring temperature, air velocity, heat flux and humidity in real-time, and allows our customers to create the conditions required to produce the very best end product. The SCORPION® 2 system is a baking industry standard.
