The first took place in when the son of Jacob Perkins — Angier March Perkins — began to construct a baking oven. The reason behind this venture was a simple geographical one. A new bakery opened up next door to his premises in Francis Street, to the north of Regent Square, and the owner asked Angier, as an engineer, to install the necessary equipment.

The first took place in when the son of Jacob Perkins — Angier March Perkins — began to construct a baking oven. The reason behind this venture was a simple geographical one. A new bakery opened up next door to his premises in Francis Street, to the north of Regent Square, and the owner asked Angier, as an engineer, to install the necessary equipment.
See also History of A. Despite some difficulty in finding other customers, Angier Perkins decided to go ahead with this line of business and it paid its way without bringing in much profit. Most of the ovens were bought for baking bread for the army at home and overseas, more than seventy per cent of sales being to the military authorities.
In these early days of oven manufacture, Perkins helped to feed more soldiers than civilians. The second seminal event was the patenting by Joseph Baker in Canada inof a small combined flour scoop and sifter for use by housewives. The success of this invention led to Joseph travelling to England in to seek new markets for his product.
This resolved many of the oven heating problems, providing a steadier heat then was possible with wrought-iron tubes. Two rows of tubes, independent from each other, traversed the whole length of the oven, one row above the loaves, the other below the bread plate.
All protruded slightly downwards form the baking chamber into the furnace. Each tube was, in effect, an individual boiler, its upper part filled with high-pressure steam. These ovens, with their steady heat that could bake Paper bakery after batch of loaves, cakes and pastry, were sold to some of the most important bakeries in the country.
Stopped-end steam tube ovens were developed to become, in later years, the mainstay of Baker Perkins. Stopped-end tubes were still being produced at Westwood Works nearly one hundred years later.
See The Experimental Department. The tubes were taken to the air-raid shelter near to the Pattern Shop, See Westwood Works in WW2 — Air Raid Sheltersthermocouples were placed along the length and one end placed in a gas burner before vacating the area very quickly.
Yes, the tubes, on occasion, did blow up! Perkins Ovens Loftus Perkins went on, into design a horse-drawn steam oven to feed troops on the march. The late s saw a concerted effort to increase oven sales with letters to potential customers all over the world, extolling the virtues of the design — "freedom from sulphur, gas and dirt of any kind; continuous baking and uniformity in the loaves; adaptability of the ovens for high-class confectionery since the heat could be so easily regulated; etc.
See also Before Westwood. One of the products sold was the Wieghorst oven, imported from Hamburg, and advertised as being a great improvement on the Perkins ovens.
Pfleiderer, a man of great charm and persuasive ability, did much to keep the products of the company in the public eye at a time when there was much talk of the unsavoury places where bread was made and the unhygienic methods used. For confectionery, there was a sponge divider, cake mixer, sponge whisk, hot plate, peel cutter and ice freezer.
Also describe the difference between the various sorts of ovens — peel, drawplate, etc. Talk about the development of ovens up until this time The Pointons and the Dough Divider At about this time another very important character came on the scene.
A description by the son, John Pointon, of how the machine was developed can be found in The Pointons. It is no exaggeration to say that with this machine, which he followed by designing other innovative dough handling devices, John Pointon laid the foundations for the long-term success and prosperity of Baker Perkins.
Indeed, if it were possible for John to visit the modern Baker Perkins factory in Paston, Peterborough, he would have no difficulty recognising the bread forming equipment made today, the basic principles of which John established in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
Ihlee now considered that a union of the two firms would benefit both businesses. It was a newcomer to the scene, F. Ihlee — an able engineer, shrewd businessman and a natural leader - who steered the business through the next series of traumatic events - the move from London to Peterborough in and the fierce local antagonism towards the company, which existed at the start of World War One See History of Perkins Engineers.
With no suitable premises available in the vicinity, Ihlee was forced to seek a solution in an area where wages and general expenses were less and were there was room for expansion. After a long search, he settled on a ten-acre plot close to the London to Scotland railway line on the west side of Peterborough.
The deal with the Church Commissioners was settled on 22nd December and construction of the new Westwood Works was begun in — see www.
We now return to developments by the Baker family. The sifters were made in different sizes and with different attachments for handling other products — jellies, catsup, and homemade wines - and for washing dried currents and dried fruits.
