Automatic sourdough production
SOK Suur-Savo bakery in Mikkeli installed a state-of-the-art raw ingredient dosing system for dough and sourdough production.
With the Powder Technic Fermatic sourdough system, sourdough production and dosing is controlled and monitored by automation
Sourdough is produced fully automatically with three 5 m3 sourdough containers and the Powder Technic Fermatic sourdough system™ control automation system. The timing of sourdough production is set with a user-friendly timer menu. After making the settings, the system automatically doses the water and dry ingredients needed for the sourdough. Sourdough mixing and down times are easy to set in the Fermatic sourdough system™ programme memory.
Dosing automation controls and monitors dosing actions
In accordance with the product recipes, the recipe dosing system doses 10-15 pcs of 300-litre raw ingredient batches an hour. The active dosing accuracy maintenance automation monitors dosing accuracies and raw ingredient stock levels. Dosing actions and raw ingredient consumption reports for a desired time period are saved in the system and can be used for a variety of purposes.
"Based on the feedback we've gotten from bakeries, we've made the recipe automation and user interface so user-friendly that anyone can set up a dough production run, even if they don't know a thing about computers. This makes it easier to adopt a new system and allows for a seamless transition to the new equipment," explains Jukka Kousa of Powder Technic Ltd.
Stable dough quality and better work ergonomics
" We are happy with the sour dough system supplied by Powder Technic. It allows us to keep our product quality stable and it has helped the work of our bakers" says SOK Suursavo Bakery's production manager Rauno Heikkinen.
