Advantages of Continuous Mixing
- Improves reliability and repeatability
- Creates consistent bun and roll shape
- Eliminates surface imperfections
- Accommodates “within spec” flour variations
- Maximizes water absorption—reduces cost of ingredients, improves yield
- Eliminates dough contamination
- Quick and easy sanitation
- Reduces labor and peak energy demand
- Eliminates mixer loading errors
- Easy to learn and operate
- Allows consistent time between mixing and further processing
- Dough exits the mixer in usable sized loaves
Continuous Mixing for Bread & Roll Production Lines
Continuous Mixing is the process of continuously metering ingredients directly into the mixing chamber and generating a continuous stream of mixed product at the exit of the mixer. The mixing may be done in stages to ensure all ingredients are properly incorporated.
Exact Mixing has specifically developed the HDX Continuous Mixer for ultra-high absorption, highly developed dough, including breads, hamburger and hot dog buns, hard rolls, English muffins, tortillas, multi-grain products, and other similar products.
This High Development Continuous Mixer is designed to manufacture highly developed dough at low temperatures. The HDX Mixer, a 2-stage system, mixes all ingredients into a uniform mass with a twin-screw mixer in the first stage. In the second stage, the dough is kneaded to the proper development level with a single screw mixer.
The HDX Mixer provides precise and uninterrupted ingredient metering to the mixer and eliminates the chance of contamination because the dough is never exposed to the environment. This mixer offers dough production rates from 1,500 to 10,000 kg/hour.
Explore whether your process is a good fit for continuous mixing with our Continuous Mixing Calculator. If you would like to see your products being mixed in a continuous process, we encourage you to visit our Science & Innovation Center in Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania, where pilot versions of all types of Exact Mixers are available.
What is the Cost of a Continuous Mixing System?
Continuous Mixing Systems are almost always initially higher in cost than batch mixers. This is because the raw materials that enter the Continuous Mixer have to be metered, which requires ingredient feeders.
On the other hand, cost of operation and ownership is almost always less expensive than batch mixing. Continuous Mixing payback opportunities come from increased yield, increased throughput, increased consistency, reduced manpower, reduced downstream handling equipment, and reduced energy.
If your industrial bread and roll manufacturing process involves a traditional batch mixer, you may be interested in Continuous Mixing equipment from Exact Mixing. With our equipment and expertise, we can help you reduce labor, cut costs, improve consistency and simplify your mixing process.
