Pastry Pie Shell System

Pastry pie shell systems are very popular for meat and fruit pies in the frozen pie industry. At Raque, our meat and fruit pastry pie shell systems produce top-notch Double Crust Pies! These pies make both top and bottom crusts, as well as High Rim Pies that have a formed shell. Also, this kind of pastry pie shell system can produce pastry shells in large volumes, speeding up your pie production process!

A large volume High Rim Pie Production System discharges pastry pie shells to await our piston filling system conveyors.

Crumb Pie Shell Systems

Another popular crust we deal with is the crumb pie shell crust, which is used to make delicious cheesecakes. Our cheesecake and crumb pie shell systems create pies with a bottom crust (or shell) made from crumbs, such as graham crackers. Our pie production systems can be customized to produce crumb shells that allow the crust to rise on the sidewall or rest flat in the package, depending on what your organization prefers.

An Intermittent Motion Crumb Shell System compresses graham cracker crumbs into shells for cheesecakes and cream pies.

Piston Filling Systems

Here at Raque Food Systems, not only do we build customized machinery that creates shells for pies, but we also manufacture piston filling systems that fill pie shells! Our piston filling systems have always been the most accurate and reliable method to dispense fluids and semi-liquid product. The rotary plate filler can deposit shell crumbs, fruit, etc. Meanwhile, our topping units can distribute layers of nuts, shredded coconut, and other pie toppings.

In this piston filling system, custom dispenser nozzles create pie toppings that look like they have been hand-piped by a master baker.
