Peerless is making changes to meet the market demand. Change is good and keeps things progressing. So with that said, we changed our product offering and lead the way with innovation, sanitation and durability with three new advanced ideas the market is needing.
1.) Peters Sandwiching machines have been simplified with the addition of a servo driven system. This system allows for easy integration with many packaging systems. The servos are positioned on the non-operator side of the machine which allows for easier maintenance access, too.
2.) KleanVue Mixers, the “New Kid On The Block” is making waves in the market for its innovative tubular frame design allowing for the ultimate in sanitation for open frame mixers. The inter-locking tubular design increases frame strength and the placing all the drive and tilt mechanisms on the same side reduces the need for safety guarding on both sides of the mixer.
3.) Hallmark is back on the floor and is perfect for the baker with small batches but demand high performance.
These new changes will help the baker and manufacturing plant with the demands of todays market. Peerless is dedicated to meeting the needs of our customers with superior service and unmatched reliability. See our website or call us for more information.
Time is precious, especially to bakers. The smallest problem can cause valuable lost time in production and that equals = MONEY. Plan a strategy that will help prevent breakdowns and ensure your productivity will keep going. Here is a list of monthly preventative measures for high-speed mixers you can do to help maintain production and prevent costly repairs in the future.
Agitator-High Speed Roller Bars–Re-torque bolts. Replace as needed.
Agitator-High Speed Roller Bars –Check for side-to-side motion.
Agitator Shaft Bearings Check for undue noise, vibration, excessive heat.
Bowl Mounting Re-torque all bolts.
Canopy–Check flour gate system.
Canopy–Inspect all seals for damage or wear. Replace as needed.
Hydraulic Tilt Cylinders–Manually grease rod ends.
Motor Coupling–Check rubber element. Check set screws.
Refrigeration System–Check for refrigerant leaks.
Refrigeration System Replace refrigeration hose (DX only).(Yearly)
Bowl Side Seals–Check for adjustment and wear.

Here at Peerless, we highly recommend a PMP or Production Maintenance Program. This program offers inspections to your machine in a 6, 12, 24 and 36 month interval. Our technicians will inspect, repair, calibrate and document machinery performance, as well as provide technical training to operations and maintenance personnel.

I like to go out and visit customers pretty regularly so that I can see first hand, how our equipment works in the field, how customers use and maintain the machines and what processes our customers use to make their own products with our equipment. It is always interesting to see how large (er, giant) bakeries work.
Recently, I visited the “World’s Largest Bakery” – it was massive. They produce a lot of food, in an exceptionally clean environment. I was very impressed. But, the best part of the tour was walking into a large open room where they do all their mixing and seeing 10 (yes – that’s right 10!)Peerless mixers in a row mixing product to support a HUGE portion of the bakery. Hence the title of this post…
The Peerless brand stands for premium quality equipment that is depended upon by large and small bakeries alike. Peerless stands for equipment that “Just always works”. Peerless stands as a brand offering uncompromising service. Peerless stands as a trusted partner to our customers.
Interesting question – eh? An adult brown bear typically weighs about 1,400 lbs and a Peerless HS16FD can easily accommodate a dough ball that weighs 1,400 lbs! Now, that’s a lot of bread dough!
But, that’s EXACTLY what this mixer was made to do! It’s on its way to Georgia to make potato bun and bread dough. This HS16FD is a truly robust mixer. This unit has solid stainless steel base plate, solid stainless steel columns, a heavy-duty stainless unibody frame, a stainless steel bowl sheet, bowl ends, canopy and a stainless steel agitator, shaft and breaker bar…. (are you beginning to see a trend?)
The heavy-duty body, that is almost entirely stainless steel construction, was built to last. This high-quality mixer weighs in at OVER 20,000 LBS in weight! And, all the stainless steel on this mixer makes it almost sparkle too! Not only is it the workhorse of the bakery… it will be the prettiest machine there!
At Peerless, we pride ourselves on working with our customers to understand their business needs and to manufacture equipment that meets their needs. Here’s a story from bakingbusiness.com that talks about how Pepperidge Farm project managers learn from other sister plants and then implement a new double bread line smoothly. It also features some very nice mentions of their incorporation of Peerless High Speed, Horizontal Mixers into their Bread Lines. The article also talks about utilizing our bread handling equipment to automate some pieces of their new Bread Line as well.
