The Junior, but in fact also the
'Senior', recipe weigher works as follows. The weigher asks
for a recipe to make. This can be done through entering the
recipe's number or selecting the recipe from a list in the
recipe weigher's memory. After a recipe has been entered,
the amount to make has to be entered. This amount can be:
After RTS Project had developed the Dough
production system, the question arose quickly for
a low cost recipe weigher, the Junior Recipe weigher.
This junior weigher is available in two models:
- Linked to an existing scale.
The accuracy depends on the scale to which the
recipe weigher is linked.
- Linked to a stainless steel plateau.
The accuracy is 60kgx2gr, or 35kgx1gr or
Furthermore the Junior is
obtainable in plastic and stainless steel.
The picture above shows the
weigher, linked to an existing scale. The picture at
the bottom of this page shows a stainless steel
Junior weigher linked to a stainless steel plateau.
What is the purpose of a recipe weigher?
constant quality of products
can not be forgotten any more
- Weigh the
exact amounts of ingredients
- Calculate the
exact amount of ingredients
- Less skilled
personnel can make recipes
- Save data of
- Save amount
of ingredients used
- Amount of end product,
for example loafs
- Amount of baking
- Amount of doughs
- Amount of bags of
flour that need to be used
This amount can relate
to 'backing trays' for one recipe and to the amount of 'doughs'
for ther other. After this entry the recipe weigher
calculates the amount needed of each single ingredient in
the recipe. Next, the recipe weigher shows the ingredient to
weigh and the target amount on the display. At the same
time, the actual weight is shown on the display. LED
indicators are used to show over, under or correct weight.
The recipe weigher will only continue to the next ingredient
if the target weight has been reached within the acceptable
tolerances. These tolerances are internally known by the
recipe weigher, per ingredient.
In this way a recipe
can hardly ever fail any more and no valuable production
time is lost. Another advantage is the lesser lost of wasted
|On the right hand
side the Junior recipe weigher is shown in stainless
steel and stainless steel platform. A major advantage
of this scale is that is has a greater accuracy than
the Junior linked to an existing scale. In this
configuration, there is no need for two scales to
weigh the 'bulk' ingredients and the 'little'
