Automated Dough Trough Tilter / Dumper Helps Solve for Safe and Efficient Cleaning Challenges

This automated dough trough dumper was designed for a baking industry manufacturer that needed a solution for safe and efficient sanitation of their dough troughs as well as a safe way to make repairs to them.

This dumper was designed to have a full rotation of 135° for normal sanitation requirements. In addition to this full rotation we incorporated another set point to allow for the maintenance group to work on repairing damaged caster assemblies. Due to the very close proximity of not only sanitation staff but also maintenance staff we incorporated additional locking components for the dough trough itself as well as operational safety locks and safety switches. These additional safety devices were integrated into the controls system to prevent unsafe operation of the dumper.

A footprint of 14.5 ft. x 6.5 ft. and a capacity of 3,000 lbs., this equipment is custom designed for both in-line and off-line applications.
