As you evaluate production equipment for your commercial bakery, explore the tremendous benefits of Exact Mixing’s unrivaled range of continuous dough mixing equipment.
Exact Mixing, a Reading Bakery Systems brand, is the leading supplier of Continuous Mixing Systems for the food industry. Since 1994, we have been dedicated to solving complex mixing challenges for customers across the globe.
What is the Difference Between Batch and Continuous Mixing?
Batch mixing is a process in which ingredients for a single batch are loaded (either at once or in a pre-defined sequence), mixed, and discharged from the mixer before introducing another batch. The time between batches often results in inconsistencies in batches due to processing variations and controlling mechanisms.
In comparison, Continuous Mixing is the process of continuously metering ingredients directly into the mixing chamber and generating a continuous 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.
Which Products are Appropriate for Continuous Mixing?
Today, Continuous Mixing is a proven solution in the pretzel, cracker, baked snack, chip, cookie, pizza, pastry, sweet goods, tortilla, and bread and bun industries. We also manufacture Continuous Mixing solutions for non-bakery items, such as protein bars, peanut butter, icings, and pet treats.
Exact Mixing offers a comprehensive line of mixer models and sizes with production volumes ranging from 50 kg/hour to over 10,000 kg/hour that will successfully mix a wide variety of food products. They include:
Exact EX Continuous Mixer – designed for wheat-based snack products, such as crackers, and other low- to mid-absorption stiff doughs.
Exact HDX Continuous Mixer – a two-stage system designed for manufacturing ultra-high absorption, highly developed doughs at low temperatures, such as for buns, bread, and rolls.
Exact FX Continuous Mixer – designed for products where critical moisture levels determine final product texture, such as baked potato chips and crisp products.
Exact MX Continuous Mixer – our most versatile mixer that is designed for products that require high energy mixing as well as a wide range of other products, including cookies, snacks, batters, icings, and pastes.
What is Included in a Continuous Mixing System?
A complete Exact Mixing Continuous Mixing System consists of the mixer, blender, materials handling and ingredients metering, as well as the control system that monitors and distributes product between them.
Exact mixers are designed using Loss-in-Weight technology – the most accurate feeding technology available. And all metering and mixing procedures are monitored and initiated by the control system so the operator can confirm and modify as needed.
We provide complete systems, testing, and installation supervision for both straight dough and liquid ferment systems.
