Continuous Mixing Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
- Who is Exact Mixing?
Exact Mixing has delivered innovative Continuous Mixing solutions to a growing number of customers and industries since 1994. Our team is dedicated to helping you reduce labor, cut costs, improve consistency, and simplify your mixing process.
- What is the Difference Between Batch and Continuous Mixing?
Batch mixing is when ingredients for a single batch are loaded, mixed, and discharged from the mixer before introducing the next batch. The time between batches often results in inconsistencies due to processing variations and controlling mechanisms.
Continuous Mixing is the process of continuously metering ingredients directly into the mixing chamber and generating a constant 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.

Continuous Mixing is now a proven solution in the pretzel, chip, baked snack, pastry, sweet goods, cookie, cracker, bars, pizza, tortilla, and bread and bun industries. We also offer Continuous Mixing solutions for non-bakery items, such as protein bars, peanut butter, icings, and pet treats.
