Baker Perkins makes barrel liners easier to replace
Because it has made barrel liner replacements easier to fit, Baker Perkins has reduced the cost of replacing the liner on its MPF food extruders by as much as 50%. It also enabled only one section to be replaced, reducing the cost, complexity and downtime needed. The savings are achieved by replacing the original 1-piece liner with a backing block and a liner comprising a number of individual inserts. Like previous liner replacements, this is a high-precision operation requiring specialist equipment and is best carried out by the company’s factory-trained engineers. However, subsequent liner replacements can be undertaken by processors’ own engineers in a fraction of the time, saving both cost and plant downtime.
