If you are looking for alternatives to inline high shear mixers for powder/liquid mixing in your commercial manufacturing process, consider the benefits of Continuous Mixing equipment from Exact Mixing.
Since 1994, Exact Mixing has delivered innovative Continuous Mixing solutions to a growing number of customers and industries. 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. With our equipment and expertise, we can help you reduce labor, cut costs, improve consistency and simplify your mixing process.
About Continuous Mixing Technology
Industrial mixing consists of four primary operations:
- Delivering bulk ingredients (typically flour) to the mixing area
- Measuring ingredients placed in the mixer
- Mixing the ingredients into a dough
- Handling the dough as it exits the mixer.
In a batch mixing process, these four operations are often treated, designed and implemented separately. Continuous Mixing, in comparison, integrates all four operations into a single process.
Bulk delivery, metering, mixing and dough handling become a cohesive, uninterrupted process. Metering systems are accurate and designed for accuracies of ±0.25% or better. Products with dough moisture levels that range from very low to very high are uniformly mixed without generating excessive heat. Dough is discharged from the mixer in a constant stream rather than in one large batch every 10 to 15 minutes.
MX Continuous Mixer for Fillings, Icings & Batters
The Exact Mixing MX Continuous Mixer is our most versatile mixer and is well suited for a wide range of products. It is designed specifically for mixing high-fat, high-solid products, such as icings, batters, pastes, 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.
The MX Continuous Mixer is an ideal first stage mixer for processes that require creme up and pre-blend stages. 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. It offers dough production rates up to 8,000 kg/hour.
What the System Includes
In addition to the mixer itself, a complete Exact Continuous Mixing system also includes:
Materials Handling: We work with vendors who specialize in solutions such as dilute phase, dense phase, vacuum and pressure processes. We can also customize input methods to your individual process needs.
Ingredients Metering: Gravimetric, Loss-in-Weight technology provides precise, uninterrupted dry ingredient metering to the Continuous Mixer. Flowmeters connected to the closed loop control system ensure that liquid ingredients are accurately delivered to the Mixer.
Minors Blending: To reduce costs, increase flexibility and simplify the process, some minor ingredients are automatically pre-blended before metering.
Operator Interface: All metering and mixing procedures are monitored and initiated by the control system so the operator is always able to confirm and modify as needed.
System Monitoring: Automated controls monitor the mixing process to self-correct for any variations in ingredients or temperature.
