Measuring Temperature in Industrial Ovens

Industrial ovens are an important part of the production process in many bakeries, used to quickly bake a variety of products. But these complex pieces of machinery require precision and consistency when it comes to their temperature range, as even a slight fluctuation can have major implications for product quality. That’s why having a reliable way to measure and control the temperature in order to ensure accuracy is key. The ability to measure temperature in industrial ovens, especially if you’re working in an environment where you have multiple ovens from multiple manufacturers, is crucial to understanding how to standardize your oven environments to produce the same quality of baked goods across multiple lines.. 

Fortunately, Reading Thermal has developed a comprehensive solution for measuring temperature in industrial ovens that can help bakeries produce premium products consistently. With decades of experience under our belts, Reading Thermal has garnered a reputation within the baking industry for manufacturing quality baking oven measuring and monitoring solutions that are reliable and easy to use. Our products are designed to provide the necessary accuracy, precision, and consistency that bakeries need to ensure product quality. We also offer a wide range of temperature measuring solutions tailored specifically for industrial ovens, allowing bakeries scale production up without compromising the integrity and quality of their products.

Temperature at Product Level

Baked goods are influenced by a number of different factors throughout the baking process: heat flux, humidity, air velocity, timing, and temperature across a line’s entire width and length. In order to produce consistent, high-quality baked goods, it’s essential to have control over all of these variables. Precision is key, especially when analyzing conditions at product level.

Having a clear vision of temperature at product level tells bakers a lot of valuable information about the holistic baking process and the final outcome for their baked goods. It provides insight into important aspects such as:

  • Fermentation
  • Product swelling
  • Moisture evaporation
  • Flavor development
  • Surface coloring
  • Product shrinkage
  • And more.

Too much temperature will lead to overcooked and burnt products. Too little temperature leaves the results half-baked. Baking requires critical attention to detail to ensure that all products yield the same results, and one of the easiest methods for determining how consistent a batch is is by measuring temperature at product level along the entire production – side-to-side and end-to-end.

Ovens are prone to variances along the production lines themselves, resulting in non-uniform batches due to hot or cold spots along the band. By utilizing Reading Thermal’s SCORPION® 2 Temperature Sensor Array with your industrial ovens, you can produce an accurate graph displaying temperature across the entire width and length, giving bakers a more informed view of what’s happening inside their ovens. 

This helps identify any potential spots that might be running too hot or cold and can help bakers make corrections early, creating a higher quality end product. Our sensors are also designed to withstand high temperatures and harsh environments, which can often be the case in an industrial bakery setting.

By leveraging Reading Thermal’s technologies for measuring temperature in industrial ovens, bakeries can better regulate and control their baking conditions to produce consistent, high-quality products- every time. With our solutions, you can rest assured that your products will always turn out perfect.
