Heat Regulation

Pie makers have been heating die sets since there creation, whether it was by warming it in the oven before starting production or later using gas elements. In the modern day electric elements are more commonly used.

Dies were heated prior to use in order to help prevent pastry and dough mixes from sticking to the die during pressing. John Hunt has a number of heat regulation options:

The Simmerstat,

A Simmerstat is effectively a timing device that will turn the current of electricity supplied to the heating element on and off at intervals relevant to the setting selected. A simple dial numbered 1-5 where selecting 1 will have the shortest period of power and 5 would be constant. Your ideal setting will be personal to your setup, process, and environment and will be found through a little testing. The Simmerstat is a simple, cost effective way of regulating the heat supplied to your die so that you can press continuously for longer periods.

Setting up your Simmerstat? 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

The Digital Thermostat,

Some machines are fitted with a digital thermostat. This device will maintain the die at a constant specified temperature, to within an accuracy of a couple of degrees. It is fully adjustable so that you can select the temperature most appropriate to your pastry/dough mix. All Automatic & Semi-Automatic machines are fitted with these as standard.

Setting up your Thermostat? 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
