Screening fresh-baked brownie goodness
A bakery installs a circular vibratory screener in a production line to improve product quality and production capacity.
Greyston Bakery produces various gourmet sweet baked goods at its 23,000-square-foot facility in Yonkers, N.Y., specializing in brownies that are sold as desserts and used as inclusions by ice cream manufacturers. To make the brownie inclusions, the bakery cuts fresh-baked brownies into small pieces and then sends them through a screener to remove any oversize chunks before conveying the onsize pieces to a packaging area. In early 2009, an ice cream manufacturer contacted the bakery about having the brownie inclusions cut into smaller pieces for a new product it planned to make. To accomplish this, the bakery needed a screener that could accurately screen the small brownie inclusions at the required throughput rates.
