Automatic dosing of liquids
The automatic dosing of liquid is performed by the Watermatic™ and Fluidmatic™ dosing units, which are connected to the PLC control raw ingredient system.
The Watermatic is a compact dosing unit for the dosing of water. The water being dosed is run from the Watermatic directly into the dough hopper to an accuracy of 1 decilitre and at the desired temperature.
Fluidmatic for syrup
Syrup is dosed by weighing with the Fluidmatic™.The Fluidmatic is comprised of a fluid container set on scale sensors and an integrated dosing pump, which pumps the precisely weighed fluid into the dough hopper.
Liquid yeast dosing
Powder Technic engineered a special system for making of liquid yeast from solid yeast. The system inluded a yeast dissolving and dosing tank and a smart PLC control for the liquid yeast production and dosing.
Fully automatic sour-dough production
With Powder Technic's sourdough system, sourdough production and dosing is controlled and monitored by automation. Sourdough is produced fully automatically with three sourdough tanks and the Powder Technic control automation system. The timing of sourdough production is set with a user-friendly timer menu. The production of sour dough is fully automatic and PLC controlled resulting to a steady quality and remarkable labour cost savings.
