Food processing machinery - Bowl lifting and tilting machines - Safety and hygiene requirements

This European Standard specifies safety and hygiene requirements for the design, installation, operation and maintenance of lifting and tilting machines used, in bakeries, for lifting and/or tilting a container or a machine with non removable bowl containing dough or pastry and for tipping the contents at the top end of the stroke.
The lifting and tilting machines can be stationary or movable and are designed for semi-manufactured products (mixtures of flour, water and other ingredients) or raw material (flour, mixtures etc.). The direction of lifting can be vertical, inclined or combined and follows a track fixed by mechanical guides, or articulated arms.
This European Standard deals with the significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to lifting and tilting machines, when they are used as intended and under conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer (see Clause 4).
This European Standard does not deal with the hazards due to the mixing or other function of the bowl (for dough mixers see EN 453).
The following machines are excluded:
- experimental and testing machines under development by the manufacturer;
- domestic appliances;
- automatic mobile equipment, for example bucket trucks;
- lift trucks;
- automatic devices working in automatic production lines (where the initiation of the movement is not due to an human action).
This European Standard does not deal with powered equipment that may be provided to assist the mobility of mobile bowl lifting and tilting machines.
When drafting this European Standard, it has been assumed that the machines are not intended to be cleaned with a water jet.
Noise is not considered to be a significant hazard by lifting and tilting machines for bakery. This does not mean that the manufacturer of the machine is absolved from reducing noise and making a noise declaration. A noise test code is therefore given in Annex A.
This European Standard is not applicable to lifting and tilting machines for bakery which are manufactured before the date of publication of this European Standard by CEN.
