US bakery equipment manufacturer Radio Frequency Company (RFC) has introduced a lower cost version of its post-baking dryer, the Bantam-Series Macrowave, aimed at smaller bakeries.

Its original Macrowave post-baking dryer was aimed at large wholesale producers of biscuits and crackers on lines producing 2,727kg to 3,409kg of product an hour.

However, this did not make economic sense for bakery lines producing smaller quantities of products.

The Bantam-Series Macrowave is designed specifically for up to 1m-wide bands producing 1,364kg an hour or less. The new system requires no external plant cooling and no heavy-duty electrical supplies.

With far fewer components and a simple, yet robust design, the capital and maintenance costs are said to be greatly reduced.

This equipment is capable of boosting throughput capacities by 30% or more, while also eliminating checking and over-colouring problems, claims RFC.
