Wafers & Snacks

Proven experience in formulating different batter recipes  

The repeatability of the characteristics of the wafer and snack batter throughout the year and in different geographical areas is of fundamental importance. Slight variations in the composition of the flours or differences in the temperature of the external environment could, however, compromise the finished product. Moreover, the frequent changes of recipe with different ingredients, depending on the type of batter to be produced, increase the cleaning operations necessary on the machinery. 

The Piovan Group offers solutions that guarantee the repeatability of the characteristics of the final product all year round through maximum accuracy and flexibility. The plants, in fact, can be realised with gravimetric loss-in-weight dosing, where each dosing unit is dedicated to a single ingredient. This technology allows precise dosing in any working condition.
Adding the ingredients individually, in the correct order and in a controlled manner to the liquid mixture being formed guarantees the 
maximum quality of the final product. Piovan also offers the possibility of pre-mixing the ingredients before dissolving them in the dough.
A correct dosing process greatly reduces the need to clean production line machinery. The Group's dosing units are however designed to be extremely easy to clean without the need for dedicated technical assistance.  
 

In-depth knowledge of all processes and consolidated experience, combined with a widespread technical assistance service, allow the Piovan Group to guarantee constant proximity to the customer at a global level. 

ACCURACY
FLEXIBILITY
CLEANING
Storage, transport, loss-in-weight dosing and mixing are some of the food ingredient processing phases in which Penta and Fea, the Piovan Group companies specialised in automation systems for the processing of food ingredients, are able to operate.

Flour cooling

Electrostatic coating

Electrostatic coating

UNIFORM COATING BY ELECTROSTATIC CHARGE
Piovan Group has patented electrostatic coating, a state-of-the-art technology for the application of food powders on sweet and salty products. This technology ensures maximum adherence and uniformity of application of powders and particles on all sides of the product.  

Sieving

ROBUST, EFFECTIVE AND EASY TO INSPECT SIEVES
Industrial sieving of food ingredients is essential to ensure the quality of the finished product. This process ensures the correct size of the product in transit and eliminates any contaminants or impurities larger than the sieve drum screen itself.

Dosing

Dosing

ACCURATE DOSING AND EASY CLEANING
In food ingredient handling processes, accurate dosing of powders and granular products is essential. Piovan Group designs a range of loss-in-weight dosers that guarantee absolute dosing precision thanks to a spherical arc. These dosing machines provide, with reference to the relevant recipe, the correct quantity of raw material that can be mixed or directly discharged into the primary operating machines. It is also possible to create a premix between different ingredients, through continuous dosing.

Supervision and Process Control

PLANT MANAGEMENT AND SUPERVISION SYSTEMS
As in other industrial sectors, as well as in the food sector, to guarantee maximum production efficiency it is necessary to have complete control of the process, in all its phases.

Dehumidification

CLEAN, DRY AIR FOR FOOD PRODUCTION
In the food industry, constant monitoring of the relative humidity level of the air is essential to ensure the highest quality of the finished product. Dehumidifying the ambient air with the highest degree of hygiene is crucial for the transport and storage of ingredients such as flour, cocoa, milk and flavourings. With particular reference to hygroscopic substances, it is essential that the product humidity is as desired for production under all environmental conditions.

Transport

Transport

DENSE AND DILUTE PHASE TRANSPORT WITH PRE-MIXING OPTIONS
Piovan Group industrial conveying systems are developed according to engineering design standards for a hygienic and safe process. These solutions are specifically designed and manufactured for the handling of food powders and viscous liquids, including flour, sugar, cocoa, honey, starch and inclusions. Specifically, the Group's conveying systems also allow ingredients to be pre-mixed during their handling.

Mixing
