|Publication Date:||1 October 2005|
|ICS Code (Plants and equipment for the food industry):||67.260|
This European Standard applies to the design and manufacture of fixed deck oven loaders used in the food industry, bakeries, pastry-making, etc. These machines are used to place dough pieces on each deck of fixed deck ovens and to remove the baked products from each deck.
This equipment may be:
- semi-automatic (some movements powered, some movements requiring manual power).
The European Standard covers technical safety and hygiene requirements for the design, installation, adjustment, operating, cleaning and maintenance of this equipment.
This European Standard deals with the significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to fixed oven deck loaders, when they are used as intended and under conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer (see Clause 4).
Noise from fixed deck oven loaders is not considered to be a significant hazard. That does not mean that the manufacturer of the machine is absolved from reducing noise and making a noise declaration. Therefore a noise test code is given in Annex A.
The following equipment are excluded:
- experimental equipment and equipment under development by the manufacturer;
- loaders for conveyor ovens;
- loaders integral to the oven;
- fully automated fixed deck oven loaders.
This European Standard in not applicable to fixed deck oven loaders that are manufactured before the date of publication of this European Standard by CEN.
