      Description

      This pocket is designed to fit Proofers made by Dutch company Elcee (LC), its frame dimensions are 210 x 185 mm.

      Execution.
      The pocket consists of a plastic frame and a polyethelene mesh.
      The open mesh provides excellent air permeability around the dough.
      The pockets’ design provides enhanced and superb cleaning results.

      Available colors.
      This Nylon Basket can be ordered in standard white frame, combined with white mesh.
      Other options are a blue colored frame, combined with either white or with blue mesh.

      Metal Detectable.
      In addition to the afore mentioned versions you can order the nylon basket with a blue colored, metal detectable frame, combined with white or blue colored mesh.

      Compound.
      The compound developed for the production of the frame contains several additives that provide a durable pocket.
      One of the additives is a UV Blocker, blocking the UV radiation from the UV-C lamps installed inside the proofer.
      The UV Blocker delays the process of the resin becoming brittle over time, and extends the life time of the pockets’ frame.
      Another additive ensures that the color remains as it is, it avoids the color from fading.

      Cleaning.
      The pockets are easy to clean with a simple, mild cleaner.
      Our advice is to do this regularly, preventively.
      A mild cleaner can simply loosen the dirt after which it can be rinsed off.
      Clean the pocket before the contamination sits too long, it becomes too hard or had too much time to soak into the plastic.
      In terms of a mild cleaner, we refer to a solution of green soap, or with the daily cleaner used in the kitchen.

      Bringing the cleaning liquid up to temperature supports the effect of the cleaner liquids.
      Note: the temperature may not exceed 55-60C because the mesh may shrink under the influence of too high temperatures.

      What is the difference between Basic and Plus materials?

      The frames of all our pockets come in two different plastic compositions:

      1. Basic Material
      2. Plus Material

       

      Basic Material is a plastic that has been specifically developed for its application: to come into direct contact with moist and oil film containing dough pieces. The plastic feels a bit “greasy” which in daily practice means that contamination adheres less easily to the frame’s surface. Because it adheres less strongly, any contamination at the same is easily removed.
      The resin is executed with a standard UV stabilizer which makes it resistant to the impact of UV beams of the UV lamps.

      For Plus Material the same base resin is used as for Basic Material, however, now several additives have been added. Like Anti-microbial that prevents bacteria from growing on the frame’s surface.
      In addition, an extra UV stabilizer that enhances the resin’s ability to withstand the impact of the UV lamp beams. The additive package is kept stabile by adding other additives that for instance avoid the white colored frame from turning yellowish after years of usage.
      The UV stabilizer extends the life time of the pocket, the Anti-microbial provides a clean and hygiene product.

      When chose for Basic or for Plus Material?

      (Semi) Industrial exploitation – Basic Material
      When a pocket is going to be used in a (semi) industrial environment, the pocket is used intensively [contamination vs cleaning liquids] and more frequently (mechanical [drop of the dough ball in the mesh] than in an artisan environment. In this situation the mesh, the weakest part of the pocket, will be the part that wears and tears first. That determines that a pocket needs to be replaced.
      If pockets do not meet a life time of 1- 2 years we advise to choose for the Basic material option.
      The Plus Material additive package only shows its presence after 6-8 years of usage, and when the mesh tears within a 1 – 2 year time frame you will not benefit from the package and thus not from your investment in a higher product price.

      Artisan exploitation – Plus Material
      If the pocket is used in an artisan environment the pockets are used only a couple of times a day. The mechanical and chemical exposure is significantly lower, however, longer because there is no reason to replace the pocket because the mesh remains undamaged. In this situation the additive package proves his presence: the pocket is being exposed to UV light for a longer period of time. Identical to the situation with contamination adhering to the frame. The additive package enables you to work with the pocket for years and years.
      In this situation the choice must be the Plus Material.

      Note concerning the available colors of the frame
      Basic Material: standard available in White, Blue and Yellow. However, for orders just as low as 500 pcs the frame can be made in any custom color.
      Plus Material: standard available in White, Blue and Yellow. Other custom colors become available with volumes starting from 5000 pcs.
      When you are considering a custom color please contact. We’ll be glad to prepare an offer based on your specific requirement.

      Metal Detectable
      This version comes in Plus Material only.

      Food Grade Materials
      Both compounds for Basic and Plus Material obviously are made of Food Grade plastics, certified to come into direct contact with food stuffs.
      This also applies to the meshes and felt used in our pockets and trays.

      Which types are available and where do they differ, what is their application

      Our pockets are offered with different kind of inlays: meshes and felt:

      1. Open Mesh type, code 95020. Available in White and Blue.
      2. Fine Mesh type, code T200. At this moment available in white only.
      3. A mesh type between meshes 1. And 2: code T420. At this moment available in white only.
      4. Needle Felt. Available in white finish.

       

      Ad 1. All our larger sized pockets are executed with code 95020 mesh. Due to the configuration of yarn diameter and mesh width the mesh is fine enough to avoid the dough from sinking inside the mazes during proofing time, causing the dough to stick to the mesh. At the same time the mazes are that wide that air circulation is optimized, and therefore proofing is perfect.

      This is our standard mesh type, executed in white colored yarn, used in all our larger pockets.
      In addition, we offer a Blue version of this mesh. In the unthinkable situation that fibers come lose from a broken yarn, a blue fiber will be found more easily than a white fiber simply because no other ingredients in bakeries are blue-colored.
      Since blue is an uncommon color for dough / bread pieces many items in bakeries are already, where possible, made in blue colored materials.
      Upon request from our customer base we recently introduced the blue mesh option.

      Ad 2., 3. and 4. These inlay materials are mainly used in our smaller pockets (or cups) that are mounted in Kaiser and other small bread intermediate proofers.
      Fully dependent on the type of dough and the proofing/resting time inside the pocket you can choose from one of these options.

      Food Grade Materials: All four products obviously have Food Grade approval and are certified to come into direct contact with food stuffs.

      Increased volume for extended proofing time
      Note: It can happen that for some reason you need or would like to extend proofing time. Longer proofing implicates a larger dough ball volume which requires a pocket’s mesh to give room to this increased dough volume.
      For these situations we offer all our larger pocket models in a “deeper mesh” execution.
      Please contact us in case you have a requirement for a deep-mesh pocket.
      Already available for, for instance a Gefra, Ter Haar, De Ridder, Van Dijk, H2A intermediate proofer.
