Advantages of Continuous Mixing
The Continuous Mixing process eliminates the problems associated with batch cycles and produces a consistent product all day, every day. It can accurately deliver raw materials to the mixer at rates high enough to meet the demand of your mixing process.
There are many benefits of Exact Continuous Mixing systems, such as:
- Produces a steady supply of uniform dough with consistent finished product weight, size and texture
- Precise and uninterrupted ingredient metering to the mixer
- Quick and easy changeovers
- Dough is evenly hydrated
- Dough leaves the mixer in usable size loaves without the need for additional equipment
- Eliminates dough variations caused by the batch process
- Eliminates chance of dough contamination
- High production rates with one mixer
- One mixer can feed multiple lines
- Clamshell design makes it easy to sanitize, maintain, clean and inspect
- Automation reduces labor costs
- Smaller footprint than batch mixers, which saves space, money and energy
- Based on higher dough production rates of 2,000 or more pounds/hour, the cost is equal to or less than the cost of a batch mixer
Exact Continuous Mixers come in all sizes, ranging from 50 to 10,000 kg/hour, and are available based primarily on dough moisture levels or dough mixing stages. We offer Continuous Mixing solutions for a wide range of products, including:
Bakery Goods: Bakery products, such as bagels, pizza, cookies, pie crusts, pocket sandwiches, breakfast biscuits, pastries, pet treats and more, are produced in our EX Continuous Mixer. It is designed specifically for mixing these low- to mid-absorption, fully developed doughs.
Crackers: Consider the Exact EX Continuous Mixer for your cracker products and the low absorption, very stiff dough. The thorough mixing action quickly develops a mass and evenly blends the leavening agents into the dough for a uniform piece size after the oven.
Wheat-Based Snacks: The EX Continuous Mixer is also ideal for wheat-based snack products where dough moisture levels range from very low to very high, including bread snacks, pretzels, bread chips, rye chips, sushka, and similar applications.
Buns, Breads & Rolls: Exact Mixing offers the HDX Continuous Mixer which is designed specifically for mixing ultra-high absorption, highly developed dough, such as for breads, hamburger and hot dog buns, hard rolls, English muffins, tortillas, multi-grain products, and similar products.
Crisp Products: The Exact FX Continuous Mixer is designed specifically for products where critical moisture levels determine final product texture, such as baked potato chips, stackable potato chips, rice crisps, corn chips, veggie chips, potato snack, multigrain chips, and more.
Fillings, Icings & Batters: Exact Mixing offers the MX Continuous Mixer which is designed specifically for mixing high-fat, high-solid products, such as icings, batters, peanut butter, muffins, pie fillings, cake-style donuts and other fat/sugar mixtures. Solid ingredients are quickly blended into solid fat to form a uniform mixture without creating excessive heat.
