Habasit Cleanline Range Copes with Sticky Dough

Introduction

  • Customer background
    The company is engaged in the manufacture of long-lasting cakes and biscuits, as well as in the production of salty pretzels, aperitif snacks and nibbles.
     
  • Challenge
    Manufacturing efficiency suffered from unsatisfying release properties which led to unacceptable product loss. TPU belts showed transversal cracks, and felt belts became fatty and scruffy.
     
  • Recommended products
    Belts from the Habasit Cleanline range, coated with Polyolefin

Measures
All the belts were replaced by CNB-5E from the Habasit Cleanline range as a first approach. The CNB-type is very suitable for sticky dough, but it proved not to be the ideal solution for this specific kind of dough.
The definitive solution was found when Habasit Cleanline type CNW-5E was tested and it found to fit all the customer's machines. There are no cracks on the surface anymore, and the release behavior is excellent.

Benefits
This case proves that Habasit's Cleanline belt types have excellent release features and offer important advantages:
• Excellent release of products
• Hygienic solution
• No surface cracks on belts
• Reliable performance
• Higher production
