Banner-Day Bakery Solutions

U.S. Patent No. 8,747,103


Banner-Day, a leader in oven performance optimization, developed Far Side Sensing®, which provides reliable flame detection on ribbon burners at the end of the burner opposite the ignition source.


As the next step in flame detection, Far Side Sensing® complies with regulations in locations that require opposite side flame sensing, such as Canada, Europe and other markets.

The value of this feature for bakers in locations requiring opposite side flame sensing is that they can now fulfill this regulatory requirement and implement long desired improved temperature control and lateral heat provisions in their ovens. This is an important advancement as it enables bakers in Canada, Europe and other markets to upgrade their existing ovens to meet CSA Code B149.3-00 Section A.4.6.12(a), and clears the way for implementation of oven automation measures to improve their bake productivity.

Banner-Day anticipates similar regulatory opposite side sensing requirements to be imposed on the U.S. market in the future. Banner-Day is uniquely positioned to provide an advanced solution to meet these expected U.S. market regulations when imposed.

Far Side Sensing® is a versatile burner enhancement with a robust design that can be incorporated into both OEM ovens and upgrade installations with existing or planned DSI systems and oven automation projects.

• A DSI system is a prerequisite to the installation of Far Side Sensing®
• Requires no additional oven modification when replacing or upgrading existing burners
• Easy to install
