Efficiently Combine Liquid & Dry Ingredient Streams Quickly & With Little Temperature Gain
The Exact Mixing Hydrobond Technology brings liquids and a dry ingredient stream (typically flour) together quickly, with little temperature gain. It can be used with a continuous mixer to make the mixing process more efficient or with a pre-hydration system to mix flour, minors and water directly into a brew holding tank. This system speeds up the continuous process allowing for the use of a shorter mixer, which means a smaller footprint lower equipment costs, and lower energy costs.
HOW IT WORKS
- Dry materials are added between the housing wall and the turning shaft. Blades attached to the outside of the shaft are used to divide the dry stream into individual particles.
- Liquid ingredients travel down through the shaft and exit through holes near the bottom. The shaft is turning rapidly, so the liquid is slung from the shaft and forms a disk in a horizontal plane.
- The individual dry particles fall through the horizontal plane.
- The hydrated mixture discharges out the bottom of the shaft and is fed into the continuous mixer or brew system.
