Continuous Mixing for Hamburger Buns
Exact Mixing has developed the HDX Continuous Mixer specifically to manufacture ultra-high absorption, highly developed dough, such as for hamburger and hot dog buns, breads, hard rolls, English muffins, tortillas, and multi-grain products, at low temperatures.
This High Development Continuous Mixer is a two-stage system. All ingredients are first mixed into a uniform mass with a twin screw mixer. In a separate section, the dough is kneaded to the proper development level with a single screw mixer.
The Exact HDX Mixer provides precise and uninterrupted ingredient metering to the mixer and eliminates the chance of contamination because the dough is never exposed to the environment. This mixer offers dough production rates from 1,500 to 10,000 kg/hour.
What are the Benefits of Continuous Mixing?
Almost any product that can be made with a traditional batch mixer can be made on a Continuous Mixer. The Continuous Mixing process eliminates the problems associated with batch cycles and produces a consistent product all day, every day. Some of the other benefits include:

What is Included in an Exact Continuous Mixing System?
In addition to the Continuous Mixer, a complete Continuous Mixing system also includes:
Materials Handling: We work with vendors who specialize in solutions, including dilute phase, dense phase, vacuum and pressure processes. We can also customize input methods to your individual process needs.
Ingredients Metering: Gravimetric, Loss-in-Weight technology provides precise, uninterrupted dry ingredient metering to the Continuous Mixer. Flowmeters connected to the closed loop control system ensure that liquid ingredients are accurately delivered to the Mixer.
Minors Blending: To reduce costs, increase flexibility and simplify the process, some minor ingredients are automatically pre-blended before metering.
Operator Interface: All metering and mixing procedures are monitored and initiated by the control system so the operator is always able to confirm and modify as needed.
System Monitoring: Automated controls monitor the mixing process to self-correct for any variations in ingredients or temperature.
