Marko Leber, Global Product Manager for food belts, talks with Joanie Spencer, Commercial Baking‘s editor-in-chief, about the benefits of IPCO’s high-powered laser cleaning technology for bake oven belts.
About Laser Cleaning:
Bake oven belt cleaning is a maintenance task that can’t be neglected. Burnt on baking residues not only lead to a less than perfect end product but can also result in a build-up of potentially harmful acrylamide.
Traditional cleaning methods usually involve the application of chemicals, dry ice, baking release agent or detergents. All involve a great deal of manual input and usually require the shutdown not only of the line in question but also all nearby ovens, making it a dirty, time-consuming and costly process
