What is the Difference Between Batch and Continuous Mixing?
Batch mixing is a process in which ingredients for a single batch are loaded (either at once or in a pre-defined sequence), mixed, and discharged from the mixer before introducing another batch. The time between batches often results in inconsistencies due to processing variations and controlling mechanisms.
In comparison, 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. This results in even dough hydration, better integration of minor ingredients, and eliminates the dough variables caused by batch mixing. One mixer can feed multiple lines and can be operated with less labor and energy than batch mixing.
Proven Continuous Mixing Applications
Cookies, Snacks, Fillings: Our most versatile mixer, the MX Continuous Mixer, is designed for mixing a wide range of products, including cookies, snacks, cake-style donuts, batters, icings, pastes, peanut butter, pie fillings, and other fat/sugar mixtures. Solid ingredients are quickly blended into solid fat to form a uniform mixture without excessive heat. It is also used for products where inclusions are a large portion of the recipe. Inclusions can be added near the exit of the mixer to obtain a uniform mix with no damage.
Buns, Bread & Rolls: Exact Mixing offers the HDX Continuous Mixer, explicitly designed for mixing ultra-high absorption, highly developed dough, such as for bread, hamburger and hot dog buns, hard rolls, English muffins, tortillas, multigrain products, and similar products. This two-stage system mixes all ingredients into a uniform mass in the first stage with a twin-screw mixer, and then, in the second stage, kneads the dough to the proper development level with a single-screw mixer.
Crackers & Wheat-Based Snacks: Many products can be produced in our EX Continuous Mixer, including crackers, bagels, pizza, cookies, bread snacks, pretzels, rye chips, sushka, pie crusts, pocket sandwiches and pastries, pet treats, and other low- to mid-absorption, fully developed doughs. It uniformly mixes products with various dough moisture levels, reduces lay time, eliminates dough troughs, and reduces labor and energy thanks to full automation.
Crisps & Chips: 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 snacks, multigrain chips, and more. A high-speed mixing shaft lifts powdered ingredients into and through atomized liquids sprayed into the mixing chamber.
