In 1994, Exact Mixing introduced a line of commercial dough mixers that revolutionized the bakery industry. Our line of five continuous mixing systems changed how businesses mass-produced the dough used to make baked goods. Batch mixers dominated the dough-mixing sector before 1994, but, after installing our line of continuous mixers, bakeries started to reap the benefits of much higher production volumes while reducing operating costs at the same time.
Exact Mixing made bakeries that installed continuous mixing systems much more profitable.
What is the Continuous Mixing Process?
Both batch and continuous mixers go through four distinct stages. First, both systems move dry ingredients to a measuring area. Second, both systems measure the dry ingredients before blending a liquid into the mixture. Third, both systems move the measured ingredients into a mixing chamber, where they blend before moving to the fourth stage, the development stage. Although both batch and continuous mixers follow the same four steps, the Exact Mixing line of continuous missing systems completes the four stages much faster.
As the name implies, continuous mixers constantly operate each of the four stages simultaneously. On the other hand, batch mixers must complete all four stages before sending another batch of dry ingredients to the measuring area. Another reason why continuous mixers outperform batch mixers is because our engineers have incorporated automated technology into each of the five continuous mixer models. Automation ensures the accurate measurement of ingredients, as well as does all the monitoring of each system. The result is lower labor costs and much higher production yields.
Here are the five continuous mixer models:
Designed to blend all dry ingredients before adding flour, the LDX Continuous Mixer is ideal for producing dough to make a wide variety of cookies. Fat is cut into the dry ingredients to create a rich texture your customers should enjoy. This machine operates at production rates between 1,500 kg and 7,500 kg an hour.
As a high-development machine, the HDX Continuous Mixer develops dough at low temperatures, making it perfect for creating high-absorption doughs for creating buns, bread, hard rolls, and English muffins. You can ramp up production of this continuous mixer to exceed 10,000 kg per hour.
Our engineers designed the FX Continuous Mixers to handle the complex process of lifting hydroscopic powders to connect with atomized liquid particles to create the delicate dough used for baked corn and potato chips. This machine operates at speeds from 100 kg to 1,250 kg an hour. The FX Continuous Mixer evenly distributes small quantities of moisture over large amounts of powder.
Wheat-based snacks such as crackers and pretzels have skyrocketed in popularity. Exact Mixing has answered the call for a machine that can handle the substantial increase in demand by offering the EX Continuous Mixer. This machine uniformly blends dough with a wide range of moisture levels at production rates between 50 kg and more than 10,000 kg per hour.
The MX Continuous Mixer is the most versatile machine in our lineup. This continuous mixer can handle large orders for popular snacks, cookies, and pizza crusts. It is the right machine to install if your bakery completes dough recipes requiring creme-up and pre-blend stages. The MX model powers production rates as low as 500 kg and as high as 6,000 kg an hour,
