Shaffer is the leading expert in replacement bowl design and installation in the industrial baking industry. Our engineering, manufacturing, and service staff all have hands-on experience designing, building, and installing bowls for Shaffer, BEW, BP, Peerless and AMF brand mixers. Not sure when a mixer needs a bowl replacement? If you are experiencing bowl jacket leaks, bowl structural failures or need to change the type of refrigeration being used, it is time to replace the bowl. Mixer bowls take a lot of abuse and cooling jackets will wear out over time, especially when mixing low absorption products. When a bowl is about ten to fifteen years old, we often see the need for it to be replaced.
New bowls can be manufactured in approximately twelve to fourteen weeks from the time of order. Bowls equipped with the VerTech® Refrigeration Jacket offer bakeries peak performance and efficiency, with the most effective and energy efficient bowl cooling available. Once replacement bowls have been manufactured and delivered to your facility, our team can perform an on-site bowl replacement in an average of two to three days, depending upon factors including: size of the mixer, accessibility to the mixer, if the mixer or surrounding equipment needs moved, and the downtime schedule of the bakery. Agitators, shaft seals, and bowl tilting mechanisms can also be replaced at this time. “Making the most of this downtime will prove extremely advantageous in the years to come,” states Joe Spaugy, Aftermarket/Technical Sales Manager for Shaffer.
