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.
