Laboratory testing of LEO prototypes

After one year of activity, the LEO project is entering a new phase of development. The two batch ovens (deck and convection) built by Ramalhos and the conveyor oven developed by Ircon are transferred respectively to ONIRIS and SP for laboratory testing.
This task will be supported by the preparatory works done during the first year of project, including the protocol for energy savings, the bread recipes and to some extend the sensory analysis. The partners will have four (4) months to work on the prototypes and their reference ovens. In addition of preparing the in-situ testing within professional bakeries, these activities will allow the research partners to write scientific articles.
During this period ONIRIS and SP will closely work together and bilateral visits will be organised to utilise their respective experience and competences:
  • - Erik Baderstedt and Haris Hondo from SP will visit ONIRIS and the bakery BPA on 17 February 2015, to work on the batch oven prototypes.
  • - Alain Le Bail from ONIRIS will visit SP on 16 March 2015, to work on the conveyor oven prototype.
