Lye unit with retracting belt

Great pretzels can be a real sales hit - and if the production volume increases with the demand, our lye unit with retracing belt with a capacity of up to 350 trays per hour quickly comes into view.

The mobile caustic tank including the caustic surge unit can of course be decoupled from the transport system in just a few steps. This ensures the best possible accessibility for cleaning and maintenance work.

If, by the way, staff should be short of time or busy with other things, this lye unit can be further automated step by step so that at the end you only have to supply the front docking station with racks full of non-lyeeded products and pick up the racks with the lyeed products again at the other end.

Erfahrung vom Bäckermeister:
Zeit bringt Geschmack, erfordert aber auch einen besonnenen Umgang mit den meist empfindlichen Teigen. Beste Erfahrungen habe ich dabei mit dem Zuführband gemacht – schonend und effizient!
