Özköseoğlu has recently added innovative, visual and functional ovens and auxiliary equipment that are mostly needed by its customers to its product ranges with intensive investments in research and development. We do not only design ovens needed by the customers. We also add energy-saving furnaces which will contribute to the national economy to our product ranges.
With our half-century experience in the sector, we have produced our rotary oven approved by TUBITAK in 2016. In order to receive superior quality and product baking results in taste, the furnace equipped with cutting-edge technology provides both excellent baking performance and energy conservation at 30 percent thanks to its high-performance oven firebox.
Being capable of providing steam in high amounts and shorter times with heat recovery system, the oven provides an opportunity to bake high-quality products at high efficiency, but lower costs thanks to its powerful steam system. New generation Gold series rotary-rack bread oven is an ideal choice for places requiring big production capacity such as patisserie, bakery, restaurant, central manufacturing, hotel, etc. It prevents steam leakage thanks to its special door insulation. In addition, it has indirect heating features and it operates with forced air circulation system and is equipped with the steam system, so it provides the best baking conditions for bakery products.
GREENHOUSE GAS EFFECT MINIMIZED
Cost increases in especially energy resources affect the costs of fuel which is one of the production items. Producers have been directed to produce more efficient products consuming less fuel. As Özköseoğlu, our project “Energy-Saving Oven” started two years ago in this scope has been completed by our R&D department and approved within the scope of the project we conducted with TUBITAK.
With our products consuming less fuel we have just produced, we not only reduce the costs of our customers, but also minimize the greenhouse gas effect with environment-friendly products by reducing the amount of hot gas releasing from oven stacks.
We have started a campaign of replacing older ovens with newer ones. This will not only ensure lowering fuel costs with energy-saving products, but also be a solution to the problems of our customers with older products. Considering wearing, deficient insulation, a malfunction in the drive systems, increasing maintenance costs and damages to parts of machinery removed as a result of underperformance which is the most important one in older ovens over time, enterprises cannot be aware how much expense they make while working in a busy pace. As Özköseoğlu, we are proud to see that our older products produced within our 55 years of history in the sector are still being used. Feedback from our customers shows us that reliability of our brand is increasing day by day. High commitment of our customers makes us work harder to create innovations with a high motivation every day.
