If you are looking for continuous mixing equipment for commercial snack manufacturing, look no further than Exact Mixing.
Exact Mixing is proud to be a Reading Bakery Systems brand. We are the leading supplier of Continuous Mixing Systems for the food industry.
For 25 years, we have been developing continuous mixing systems for the baked snack, cookie, biscuit, cracker, sweet goods, pizza, tortilla, pet treat, and bread and buns industries. We also offer continuous mixing solutions for non-bakery items, such as peanut butter, icing, protein bars, and pet treats.
What is Continuous Mixing?
Industrial mixing involves four main 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 the batch mixing process, these four operations are often treated, designed, and implemented separately. Continuous Mixing integrates all four operations into a single, uninterrupted process.
Metering systems are accurate and 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.
