We also offer Continuous Mixing solutions for non-bakery items, such as peanut butter, icing, protein bars, and pet treats.
What is Continuous Mixing?
Batch mixing involves separately loading ingredients for each batch, mixing the dough, and discharging it from the mixer before introducing another batch. Continuous Mixing continuously meters ingredients directly into the mixing chamber and generates a continuous stream of mixed product at the exit of the mixer. Mixing can also be done in stages to ensure that all ingredients are properly incorporated. One mixer can feed multiple lines and can be operated with less labor and energy than batch mixing.
Continuous Mixing for Crackers
The Exact EX Continuous Mixer is designed to uniformly mix products with very low to very high dough moisture levels. Dough is gently mixed and developed without generating excessive heat. Low moisture, stiff products are easily mixed. The thorough mixing action quickly develops a mass and evenly blends leavening agents into the dough for a uniform piece size after the oven.
The EX Mixer is ideal for wheat-based products such as crackers, pretzels, pizza, sweet goods, as well as for all but the lowest viscosity powder/liquid mixtures and offers dough production rates from 50 to 10,000 kg/hour. Mixer production rates are dependent on the amount of moisture in the formulation, level of development required, temperature and other factors.
The Mixer System can be arranged in different configurations, based on your available space. For factories with lower ceiling heights, we also offer a low-profile design.
See the Mixers in Action
To see your products being mixed in a continuous process, we encourage you to visit our Reading Bakery Systems Science & Innovation Center in Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania, where pilot versions of all types of Exact Mixers are available along with an automated bulk handling system, a horizontal dry blender, gravimetric dry feeders and mass flow liquid systems.
Our team will demonstrate the many benefits of Continuous Mixing using your ingredients and know-how at a pilot-scale level and help you identify advantages such as greater consistency and reduced labor expenses. In addition, you will learn how Continuous Mixing can meet the challenges of food safety and energy efficiency.
