Abstract: A cooking installation includes a cooking chamber, at least one conveyor belt positioned in the cooking chamber and following a spiral path of vertical axis, to receive food products and drive them from an inlet opening to an outlet opening of the chamber, a heat exchange circuit having a bundle of pipes disposed as a spiral inserted within the conveyor belt and divided into several portions involving different vertically superposed zones of the cooking chamber and connected together in parallel, and to a heat control unit for generating a heating fluid, a unit independently regulating the flow rate of the heating fluid within the portions of the heat exchange circuit, and a management and control unit for the thermal circuit and for the system driving the conveyor belt.
Abstract: A belt of a chain conveyor wherein the belt is composed of transverse bars, containment sidewalls, slide guides and drive chains, each chain being formed by a succession of modules, each one composed of an appropriately shaped link for fixing, without preventing axial rotation thereof, the transverse bar which forms the support surface for the products and for engaging the mechanical drive members, made in a form which has a lateral appendage shaped according to a profile suitable for engaging the motor members.
Abstract: A chain conveyor comprising a conveyor belt having first and second lateral link chain and cross bars connecting the links of one chain to the corresponding links of the other chain. The conveyor belt is supported by the first and second lateral chains which slide along first and second longitudinal slide elements attached to the support structure of the conveyor. The first and second longitudinal slide elements are arranged below respective lateral chains of the belt and each has a flat surface of longitudinal sliding for the lower edges of the vertical links of the belt so as to allow the links to perform also transverse movements. First and second lateral support elements are also provided, each of which can be engaged by a facing engaging surface of the conveyor belt and is arranged distanced from the respective engaging surface of the belt in such a way as to allow the longitudinally sliding conveyor belt to perform also transverse movements.
Abstract: A chain conveyor, wherein the annular elements of one of the chains are connected to corresponding annular elements of the other chain by means of cross bars directly supported and guided by longitudinal slide elements arranged parallel along the path of the belt; elements are also provided for the lateral centering of the belt, arranged on one side of at least one of the chains of the belt along all or part of the guide path, in particular along curved sections and at drive devices of the chains of the belt.
Abstract: Chain conveyor (11) with a drive device (16) comprising a toothed wheel (39) designed to engage with a chain (18) of the chain belt in a conveyor system (10) and the toothed wheel (39) is arranged so as to be coplanar and between the lateral chains (18, 19) of the belt, underneath the plane defined by the cross bars (20) connecting the chains (18, 19).
