Air Release

Air Release is a system that helps both, lifting of products and where applicable base ejection.

 

When pastry is placed in to a container it is full of small pockets of air. These are forced out of the container during the blocking out of a base. Due to the air being removed this effectively causes a vacuum within the container "sucking" it to the die. It was widely believed that deep, straight sided containers were the worst affected. Whilst this is true most containers will see an improvement with the use of air release. Foils can become distorted should a vacuum be generated and tins can suffer from lifting and require additional help to be freed, knock-off pins are present on most dies and will aid in pushing the container free as well. The air is passed through a brass air valve in the centre of the die.  

The Mini Compressor

 Manual Machines Only

The Mini Compressor system is a silent running table top compressor that plugs in to the electric supply via a single phase socket. It is then connected to the blocking die directly through an air line which feeds from the compressor. Once connected the mini compressor should be turned on, it will then become fully functional. The unit cannot generate more than 2.5bar -3bar which means it will never generate too much air supply to cause problems and therefore doesn't need regulating. Any form of air supply will be sufficient, you are only looking to replace the air forced out during the pressing process.

The Mini Compressor is not compatible with Base Air Ejection Systems.

Setting up your Mini Compressor? See our Instruction Manual here.

If you are having problems, with set-up, finding your ideal setting or suspect a fault turn off the power supply and contact: 01204 532 798

Air Compression Fittings

Manual Machines Only

It may be necessary, or you may choose to have Air Fittings attached to your machine instead. You will need to connect your own compressor to the fittings on the side of the machine via the universal connection at the rear of the fittings. Once connected to the die, using the regulator you can set the air pressure, anything from 1,5 bar - 3.0 bar will give the right results.

This is the set up required for base air ejection.

Automatic and Semi-Automatic machines have there own air fittings as standard.

Setting up your Air Release? See our Instruction Manual here.

If you are having problems, with set-up, finding your ideal setting or suspect a fault turn off the power supply and contact: 01204 532 798

See the videos below when setting up your device.

Base Air Ejection

Manual Machines

Some containers, particularly those with no "flange" or lip. will be difficult to remove from the base and will require Base Air Ejection, this runs off the Air Compression Fittings detailed above and can be adjusted via a thumb screw to increase and decrease air flow based on the size and weight of your product. This system increases production by making it easier for the operator to remove the product from the machine once pressed.

Automatic and Semi-Automatic machines have there own air fittings as standard, though base air ejection may be additional.
