29. OPERATING PROCEDURE - Continued
Divider. Start the molder and divider at the same time. Running the divider without operating the molder
causes dough pieces to pile up at the head of the molder.
(a) Start divider by pushing magnetic starter (1) to ON position.
(b) Set upper divider flour duster (2) in operation and adjust per para. 2-9. C. (6) below for proper dusting of
divider conveyor belt (3).
(c) Remove dough from dough trough and place dough in divider hopper (4).
(d) Adjust drop off gage (5) to guide dough pieces into center of divider conveyor belt (3).
(e) Check weight of each dough piece with scale (6) as each piece drops from divider pocket in dough box
cylinder (7). Control weight with cylinder screw knob (8) by turning clockwise to decrease and
counterclockwise to increase dough piece size. Adjust until divider is measuring and cutting off uniform
dough pieces of correct weight. Spot check remaining dough pieces and make further adjustment as
(f) When dough is divided, push magnetic starter (1) to OFF position.
(a) Start molder by pushing magnetic starter (9) to ON position.
(b) Set sheeting roll flour duster (10 in operation.
(d) Adjust molder sheeting rolls for proper flattening of dough pieces by controlling space between lower
rollers with wheel (13) and upper rollers with wheel (14) to increase dough piece size by turning clockwise
and turning counterclockwise to decrease dough piece size. Adjust wheels together for proper operation
(e) Adjust end dough guide to properly steer dough piece around conveyor pulley onto pressure board.
(f) Adjust pressure board with control knobs (15) (right hand) and (16) (left hand) to regulate length of loaf
issued from molder. Use pressure board dials (17) (right hand) and (18) (left hand) for indication of loaf
length issued. As dial pointer moves right, loaf length increases; as pointer moves left, loaf length
decreases. Adjust side dough guides to form a properly formed loaf.
(g) Check molded dough pieces and throw back into divider hopper (4) any defective pieces.
(h) When dough is molded, stop molder by pushing magnetic starter (9) to OFF position.
