The UK bakery market is worth nearly £4 billion and is one of the largest markets in the food industry. That equates to a total volume of approximately just under 4 billion units; the equivalent of almost 11 million loaves of bread and cakes sold every single day.
The use of chain in the bread and cake bakery industry is widespread. Filling, proving and fermentation, cooking, accumulating, wrapping, and packing – just some of the processes that use attachment chains. Sizes of chain typically range from 3/8” to 9” pitch, the cake enrobing process for example uses woven wire chain belting where chocolate is poured.
The selection of materials is important, in some cases stainless steel – in some carbon steel – in others plastic. Complying to the most stringent hygiene regulations, FB attachment chain also meets the demands that extreme temperature fluctuations and exposure to cleaning products place on it to ensure a precision performance.
