A classic with state-of-the-art modular technology and the undisputed favorite among bakeries: the deck oven. Bakers who have invested in a HEUFT thermal oil deck oven quickly discover that they have acquired a device that sets new quality standards for all future components. Be it crispy rolls, well-baked bread or juicy sponge cake: Bakeries can implement their recipes perfectly, including kneading process, preparation, proofing and cooling. As the baking atmosphere can be precisely adjusted, every product is baked to perfection. Fast heating up and lowering of the baking temperature, as well as optional turbulence operation allows bakers to intervene quickly should production conditions change. The VULKAN thermal oil deck oven is not only highly efficient but also extremely versatile, catering for large batches as well as step-by-step loading of individual trays, tins and loose goods. That is why artisan bakers dedicated to quality opt for VULKAN thermal oil deck ovens.
The VULKAN thermal oil deck oven bakes everything to measure: uniform browning, juicy crumb, crispy crust. Each product is given the desired character. Ideal for the baking process is the rich steam that is available at all times. Like the deck oven itself, the steam generator is heated by thermal oil, guaranteeing quick wetting of the entire surface by steam without overheating. A HEUFT multi-deck oven is completely unimpressed by how densely the oven is loaded. No matter whether you load individual hearths or use the full capacity, the result at the end of the baking time is always identical. The thermal oil oven also scores in terms of comfort. Up to four optionally available pull-out decks facilitate the baking process and make loading easy. The touch screen control is also simple and intuitive to operate. Even in the basic version with manual loading, the VULKAN thermal oil multi-deck oven is equipped with a programmable logic controller as standard.
The HEUFT VATO deck oven with automatic loading is the ideal solution for all bakeries that offer a broad range of products. Built with up to 12 hearths and individual baking surfaces of up to 60 m², it enables parallel baking of large quantities of different products. The VATO is available with multiple temperature control zones. All baking processes are coordinated by modern control technology that ensures perfect timing. Laborious and time-consuming loading processes so typical of deck ovens are a thing of the past. The CONCORD® loader/unloader operates at breakneck speed. The loading system moves horizontally and vertically in front of the ovens, making work much easier. Although the CONCORD® works very fast, it handles all products with great care. Even frequent product changes do not pose any problems for the CONCORD®, and preparatory work such as placing, cutting, docking, wetting, etc. do not cause it to stop. VATO and CONCORD® – a team with enormous clout and countless options.
Every bakery is different and therefore has very specific needs when it comes to ovens. Businesses that produce large quantities of pan bread, tray-baked goods or special breads are best served with a VULKAN thermal oil deck oven with pull-out decks (hearths). Trays and tins can be placed directly on the baking plate. The pull-out deck plate is ideal for loose goods: The deck automatically extends and fully automatically retracts after loading at the touch of a button. This loading and baking method is facilitated by thermal oil technology. Pull-out decks are of course also the ideal solution where manual intervention is required during the baking process, for instance to cut pound cakes or stipple tray bakes. They make such manual processes not only faster, but also safer and much easier.
I bake traditionally on stone, just like I used to, but with the latest technology at the highest level – No compromises!
My customers love the great crust from our Heuft thermal oil ovens, and my bakers love the ease of handling.
No oven in our bakery is as flexible or performs as well as our Heuft Thermo-Roll.
Baked directly on stone, finished with turbulence – simply irresistibly good!
The best decision!
Thanks to our Heuft ovens, our Weckle are juicy and crusty – Just like the old days.
