BS EN 454:2014

Food processing machinery. Planetary mixers. Safety and hygiene requirements

Status : Current, Under review   Published : November 2014



1.1 This European Standard specifies safety and hygiene requirements for the design and manufacture of fixed bowl planetary mixers with a tool having a planetary movement by using two parallel axes. The capacity of the bowl is greater than or equal to 5 L 1) and less than or equal to 200 L.

These planetary mixers are used separately in the food industry and shops (catering, bakery, pizza, pastry and confectionary industry) for mixing, kneading and emulsifying/whipping food products (e.g. cocoa, flour, sugar, oils and fat, eggs, and other ingredients). These machines are fed by hand and sometimes during operation without stopping the machine.

Processing is carried out in cycles of variable duration. It can be either manually or automatically controlled, in individual cycles or on a cycle repeat basis, etc.

This European Standard deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to the transport, installation, adjustment, operation, cleaning, maintenance, dismantling, disassembling and scrapping of planetary mixers, when they are used as intended and under the conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer(see Clause 4).

1.2 This European Standard does not deal with the following machines:

  • catering attachment for planetary mixers (see EN 12851);

  • continuously fed machines;

  • dough mixers (see EN 453);

  • whipping mixers which contain no parallel axes;

  • stirring machines;

  • experimental and testing machines under development by the manufacturers;

  • machines used in other industry, for example: meat industry, candy industry, pharmaceutical industry, chemical industry;

  • domestic appliances.

1.3 This European Standard is not applicable to machines which are manufactured before its date of publication as a European standard.
