During the last 35 years, we have had the opportunity of visiting many bakery facilities. As we discussed these visits, a common thread appeared. There was a general lack of understanding on how the various components of the oven combustion system interacted.
About this time one of the major bakery companies asked us to produce a seminar for their key bakery employees which would provide the basic information on the design and proper operation of the oven combustion system. In the following pages we have tried to do just that.
II Burner Technology
III Air Gas Mixers
IV Gas Flow & Control
VI Combustion Air Blowers
VII Air Control Valves
VIII Temperature Control
IX Oven Efficiency
As you can see from the outline, we will review each of the major combustion system components and also some related topics such as safety, efficiency and a brief overview of the OSHA code. This seminar is our attempt to present to you how the combustion system components work together to provide a reliable, controllable, safe baking environment.
This illustration is intended to provide you with an overview of the essential components in your oven. It is important that you understand that each item is interrelated and how the function of one interacts with the others. Obviously, sizing is important so that each component of the system is compatible with the other. When you look at your oven, we want you to see it as series of components that have been engineered to provide a system for you........Flame Seminar
