The technological process of rusk production
The dough is fed into the batcher, from where equal partsare fedby an inclined conveyor into the extruder’s hopper. The extruder forms a dough ribbon, which is rolled on a multiroller, after thatit is fed to a forming machine by a conveyor with a knife mechanism. The forming machine forms several doughstrands of a given diameter out of dough ribbon. The dough pieces of a given length are cut off by the guillotine and placed on the trays, which are automatically fed for stacking by the machine of trays feeding from the storage.
Baking trays with dough pieces of rusks are placed on trolleys manually and put in proofing cabinets for passing the technological stage of proofing, after which the trolleys with trays are installed in rotary ovens for baking. Then trolleys with baked rusk plates are placed in a separate roomfor cooling and staling. Ready rusks are manually removed from the baking trays and fed to the cutting machine, after which the production of rusks is carried out automatically.
The cutting machine cuts the rusksto the slices of a given width. Cut rusks are fed to a drying-roasting oven, in which the final preparation of rusks takes place. After leaving the oven, the rusks are fed into the drum, at the entrance of which the oil spraying unit and the batcher of bulk additives are installed. Inside the drum a uniform distribution of spices or other bulk additives throughout the products is made. After cooling, the finished product is conveyed to the packaging.
