High capacity proofer with minimum floor space requirements for pans and peelboards.


When the pans with product leave the make-up area, they are transferred into the proofer. After a pan/board or group enters the CapStep, it is raised upward. When the pans/boards reach the top of the upward section, they are transferred to the downward section of the proofer by a transfer conveyor equipped with paddles. When the transfer is complete, the downward section is lowered one level. This process continues until the pans/boards reach the discharge conveyor of the CapStep Proofer.

The pans / boards are supported by extruded anodized aluminum angles that are equipped with UHMW wear guides. The angles are fastened to heavy-duty chains. The whole system is PLC controlled and includes all the required safeties.
