TMB Baking – Stoneheart™ and Bassanina Tubix™ Gas Deck Ovens

When bakers want the overall performance of a gas deck oven with the thermal mass of masonry and concrete foundation and concrete reinforced walls, but have less space and budget than required for the TAG oven, then the Stoneheart™ (by Verona Forni) or Tubix™ (by Bassanina/Forma) hearth oven is the answer. These ovens are manufactured to our specifications in Italy by two leading oven manufacturers.

Features

When bakers want the overall performance of a gas deck oven with masonry and concrete foundation and concrete reinforced walls, but have less space and budget than required for the TAG oven, then the Stoneheart™ (by Verona Forni) or Tubix™ (by Bassanina/Forma) hearth oven is the answer. These ovens are manufactured to our specifications in Italy by two leading oven manufacturers and offer the following features:

  • Four baking decks, each with two baking chambers per deck (8 or 12 baking chambers/oven)
  • Baking chamber window width of 600mm (23.6”)
  • Hearth stone depths from 1600mm (63”) to 2400mm (94.5”), covering the gamut of baking capacity requirements for retail and small wholesale bakeries
  • Vapor tube diameter of 27mm, which is the standard European size dimension
  • Either a single steam generator per deck (Model Stoneheart™ 12XXS or Tubix™ 420 – located in the base of the oven) or two steam generators per deck on each side (Model Stoneheart™12XXD). The later provides instant and evenly distributed steam to each baking chamber loaded with dough, upon demand, but does require a wider footprint
  • Masonry and concrete construction in the base, with concrete placed in the walls of the oven for increased heat retention (energy savings) and thermal mass for quick recovery than all-steel oven construction during and between bakes
  • Ample use of high-temperature insulation for zero-clearance rating on sides and back of oven (though some clearance is required to construct the oven)
