Dahls’ Bageri, one of Sweden’s best-known bakeries, chose Powdea as the supplier of the dosing system for its new bakery. Powdea delivered the project together with its Swedish partner Panea
Powder Technic supplied a complete dosing system to Dahls Bageri’s new bakery in Gothenberg, Sweden. With the dosing system, Dahs is able to automate is dough preparation on two production lines.
100 metres long pneumatic conveying line
The main components of the dough,such as flour are dosed from silos that were placed inside the finished product warehousing area. The dough production area is over 50 m away from the silos. ” The challenge in this project was the conveying distance of nearly 100 m from silos to mixers. We used a special conveying method and our patented cyclone filters to ensure high conveying capacity and dosing accuracy of approximataly 200 g. ” says Powdea’s CEO Tuomo Kousa
Powdermatic ™ I200 for accurate and automatic dosing of small ingredients
The dosing of small ingredients was automated with a Powdea Powdermatic ™ I200. The Powdematic ™ dosing unit consists of 10 dosing hoppers that dispense the ingredients accurately weighed onto a pneumatic conveyor that transports the ingredients to the mixer bowl.
Liquid dispensing fully automatic with Fluidmatic ™ equipment
The liquids needed for the dough, such as oil, margarine and syrup, are automatically dispensed into the mixer with the Fluidmatic ™ according to the recipe. The unit consists of a support frame for liquid containers and pumps for pumping liquids into the mixer. The correct amount of liquid is weighed accurately.
Accurate dosing with recipe dosing controller and logic control
The dosing of the ingredients is automatic and controlled by a recipe controller. The dosing process is controlled and monitored by the Siemens S7 PLC.
Powdea Dosing Controller was integrated with the PCS Winbag ERP program
The recipe controller was integrated with the PCS winbag ERP, that in use at Dahls. The recipe controller sends dose reports and ingredient consumption information to PCS for quality control and easier inventory.
