We offer a full line of mixer models and sizes with production volumes that range from 50 kg/hour to over 10,000 kg/hour that can help you reduce labor, cut costs, improve consistency and simplify your mixing process.
Comparing Batch and Continuous Mixing
- Bulk delivery of materials: The delivery systems used to deliver bulk materials to the mixer are exactly the same for batch and continuous mixing, but adding raw materials to a continuous mixer is more accurate than with a batch mixer in nearly every case.
- Measuring of materials into the mixer: Additional weighing equipment and controls are often required to get the “proper size” batch of ingredients to the batch mixer. With a continuous mixer, all metering is done at the mixer itself. Metering directly at the mixer leads to more automation, greater accuracy, and a significant cost savings over the long term.
- Mixing: Studies have shown that continuous mixing eliminates the problems associated with batch cycles and produces a consistent product all day, every day. In terms of cost, batch mixing is slightly less expensive than continuous mixing at the lowest production rates (500 to 1500 pounds per hour). At higher rates, continuous mixing is less expensive, and the savings increase as production rates increase.
- Dough exits mixer in usable size loaves: Batch mixers make large “batches” of dough. Manufacturers need additional equipment to resize the batches. This can cause time delays and unnecessary exposure to the environment where contamination can occur. Continuous mixers produce a continuous stream of dough that can be sliced automatically into loaves by the mixer.
Continuous Mixing for Rolls & Bread
The Exact Mixing HDX Continuous Mixer specifically to manufacture ultra-high absorption, highly developed dough, such as for breads, rolls, buns, English muffins, tortillas, and multi-grain products, at low temperatures.
This High Development Continuous Mixer manufactures highly developed dough at low temperatures. A two-stage system, it is designed to mix all ingredients into a uniform mass in the first stage with a twin-screw mixer. In the second stage, the dough is kneaded to the proper development level with a single-screw mixer.
The Exact 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 up to 10,000 kg/hour.
Exact Mixing also designs and supplies metering systems for nearly every Continuous Mixer we supply. Mixers are designed using Loss-in-Weight technology – the most accurate feeding technology available. And all metering and mixing procedures are monitored and initiated by the control system, so operators can always confirm and modify as needed.
