Commercial Bakery Oven Humidity Monitoring Systems

It’s no secret that the right mix of ingredients and environment is key in baking. But what happens when baked goods aren’t coming out just right? For commercial bakers, oven humidity monitoring systems are vital in attaining those perfect desserts and breads. These advanced technologies monitor and adjust the atmosphere within an oven, allowing businesses to get consistently high-quality results every time they bake – drastically improving product quality while significantly reducing potential risks like food spoilage or contamination.

Reading Thermal provides superior commercial bakery oven humidity monitoring systems designed to create your oven’s most precise thermal profile. Our oven humidity monitoring solutions are built to meet the highest safety and efficiency standards, with advanced technology that automatically monitors the temperature, humidity levels, and other environmental conditions. Our system is ideal for optimizing your baking environment, ensuring each batch of baked goods comes out perfect with the precise amount of moisture and evenness in-line with your baking standards while meeting FDA and FSMA compliance.

Precise Measurements with the SCORPION® 2 Digital Humidity Sensor

Moisture content is a critical element to monitor, adjust, and control during the baking process. Too much moisture and the baked goods will become too dense or soggy. Too little moisture and the final product may be dry or crumbly. Maintaining the ideal moisture content levels throughout your commercial ovens can be difficult. That’s why Reading Thermal uses the SCORPION® 2 Digital Humidity Sensor as part of our Profiling System, providing accurate measurements of:

  • Dew Point Temperature
  • Absolute Humidity
  • Relative Humidity

Advantages of the SCORPION® 2 Digital Humidity Sensor

The SCORPION® 2 Digital Humidity Sensor is the successor to the older Analog Humidity Sensor, providing even greater precision and sensitivity for accurately monitoring your oven environments. By utilizing Reading Thermal’s technology, you’ll gain numerous benefits that will help your bakery  succeed, including:

  • Compatible with existing SCORPION® 2 Data Loggers
  • Anti-Saturation Technology™ allows measurements in steam conditions
  • Unaffected by combustion gasses in the baking chamber (DGF Ovens)
  • Single sensor for low temp (%RH) and high temp (Absolute Humidity) applications
  • % Moisture by Volume, Air Temp, Dew Point Temp, and %RH displayed
  • Dew Point measurements from 32°F (0°C) to 212°F (100°C)
  • Relative Humidity measurement from 0% to 100% RH
  • Two product probe inputs for product core temperature measurements
  • Document humidity during Kill Step Validation
  • No preheating required
  • No special thermal barriers needed
  • Increased dwell time
  • Free software upgrade
  • User-friendly ready light
  • Compatible with 32mm tall systems

Humidity is a complex baking parameter to control without compromising the quality of your products in the process. But with the right technology, you can monitor and adjust your oven environments to consistently produce delicious baked goods. You’ll be better equipped to control and standardize your humidity settings across all production lines with multiple oven models for better, more consistent products.

Reading Thermal’s superior bakery oven humidity monitoring systems provide precise measurements, improved product quality, and safety compliance, all while helping businesses save time and money. With our SCORPION® 2 Digital Humidity Sensor integrated with your commercial oven profiling system, you’ll get the most detailed thermal profile for producing high-quality baked goods every time.
