Conveyor ovens have revolutionized the way we cook our food. These incredible inventions are used in countless industries, from commercial bakeries to fast-food restaurants and even manufacturing plants. But how do they work? What is their secret behind producing delicious, perfectly cooked food every time? In this blog post, we will delve into the working principle of these ovens and explore why they are such an essential part of modern cooking technology.
What is a conveyor oven and how does it work?
A conveyor oven is a type of industrial oven that uses a conveyor belt to move products/food items through the oven. Conveyor ovens can be used for a variety of applications, including drying, curing, and baking. They offer a number of advantages over other types of industrial ovens. They are more efficient than batch ovens, meaning they can cook large quantities of product in a shorter amount of time. They are also more consistent in terms of cooking, as the product is moving through the oven at a constant speed and temperature. This means that there is less chance for variation in the final product.
Conveyor ovens come in a variety of sizes and configurations to suit different needs. Some common features include variable speed controls, temperature controls, and exhaust fans. The working principle of a conveyor oven is pretty simple: it consists of a conveyor belt that moves food through an oven chamber. These ovens use friction-driven mesh-belt conveyors that rely on friction between the drive drum and the belt. The food is placed on the conveyor belt, which then moves it through the chamber, where it is cooked by hot air circulating around it. Hot air is produced by heaters and distributed with the help of a fan.
