European Standard





Language in which you want to receive the document


1.1 This European Standard specifies safety and hygiene requirements for the design and manufacture of intermediate provers with powered moving pocket carriers as described in Clause 3 and used in the food industry, pastry-making, bakeries, etc. for giving a resting time to dough between different phases of the process.
This European Standard deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to the installation, adjustment, operation, cleaning, maintenance, dismantling, disabling and scrapping of intermediate provers with moving pocket carriers when they are used as intended and under conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer (see Clause 4).
Noise is not considered to be a significant hazard by intermediate provers. This does not mean that the manufacturer of the machine is absolved from reducing noise and making a noise declaration. Therefore a noise test code is proposed in Annex A.
1.2 The following machines are excluded:
- independent automatic loading system not integrated with the machine;
- experimental and testing machines under development by the manufacturer;
- retarder and final proofer.
1.3 This European Standard is not applicable to intermediate provers with moving pocket carriers which are manufactured before the date of its publication as EN.
