Bakery & Dough Proofing Equipment
What is Proofing?
In baking terminology, proofing refers to the final rise of shaped bread before baking, which is a specific rest period in the process known as fermentation. Commercial bakeries use proofing systems to maintain baking schedules and deliver consistent products. Proofing technology is used to control the speed and qualities of fermentation.

Rack Retarders lend themselves well to certain specialized products and processes. Bagel lines require long time periods for retarding and proofing. The slow moving rack system is a natural for these applications. Continuous flow of dedicated pan/carrier are necessary requirements for this equipment. Works well in a fully automated line but can also be used with manual loading and/or unloading.
Proofer Loaders and Unloaders come in a variety of styles. Loaders are available in our standard pusher style configuration or as a lug style loaders to accommodate space constraints. We also provide Proofer Elevators and Lowerators for split level applications like unloading on a different floor of a multi-story building.

Proofing Support Equipment
Peel Board Cleaners lend themselves well to certain specialized products and processes. Bagel lines require long time periods for retarding and proofing on peel boards. The peel board cleaning system is a natural fit for these applications. Continuous flow of dedicated peels are guaranteed for automated lines, an automated cleaning system is a necessary requirement. Our inline peel board cleaning works well in a fully automated line but can also be used manually.
