What is Continuous Mixing?
There are four main operations in the mixing process:
- 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.
The batch mixing process typically treats these four operations separately. Continuous Mixing, on the other hand, integrates all four operations into a single, streamlined process so that bulk delivery, metering, mixing, and dough handling become a consistent, uninterrupted process.
Continuous Mixing metering systems are designed for accuracies of ±0.25% or better. Products with very low to very high dough moisture levels are uniformly mixed without generating excessive heat. Dough is discharged from the mixer in a constant stream instead of in one large batch every 10 to 15 minutes.
Exact Continuous Mixers for Cookies & Bar Products
LDX Continuous Mixer – The Exact LDX Continuous Mixer is designed for cookies (and other applications) where ingredients are blended before adding flour. All ingredients except flour are combined in the crème-up stage, and special mixing elements cut the fat into the other ingredients. The flour is added before the development stage where the final dough is created. The LDX Continuous Mixer offers dough production rates up to 9,000 kg/hour.
EX Continuous Mixer – The Exact EX Continuous Mixer is designed specifically for mixing low- to mid-absorption, fully developed cookie doughs, including wirecut cookies, rotary moulded cookies, and deposited cookies. The thorough mixing action quickly develops strong bonds in gluten strands. Peak development and consistent delivery of dough at the optimum temperature is achieved through a precise combination of speeds in the mixing and developing sections of the mixer. The EX Continuous Mixer offers dough production rates up to 7,500 kg/hour.
MX Continuous Mixer – For manufacturers of nut bars, protein bars, and similar products that involve first mixing a base dough and then blending in inclusions that require special mixing action to avoid damage, consider the Exact MX Continuous Mixer. It is designed specifically for products where dough moisture levels range from very low to high and where inclusions are routinely added with no tolerance for damage. Inclusions can be added near the exit of the mixer to obtain a uniform mix with no damage. The MX Continuous Mixer offers dough production rates up to 8,000 kg/hour.
