Batched doughs often present problems with consistency. The mixing process is also labor intensive and less economical when you have large quantities of ingredients to be mixed. Explore the capabilities of Continuous Mixing equipment from Exact Mixing. They include our smallest bench-top systems designed for 100 kg/hour, to our largest systems that exceed 10,000 kg/hour.

Exact Mixer Models
Continuous Mixing feeds ingredients, dry and liquid, continuously into a mixer by means of automated metering systems. Ingredients are delivered into the mixer at one end, and a continuous stream of consistent dough is discharged at the other end.
Almost any product that can be made with a traditional batch mixer can be made on a Continuous Mixer. No single type of batch mixer is ideal for all products. This is also true for Continuous Mixers. This is why Exact Mixing offers a range of mixer models:
EX Continuous Mixer – The EX Continuous Mixer is ideal for wheat-based products such as sweet goods, crackers, and is also well suited for all but the lowest viscosity powder/liquid mixtures. It is designed to uniformly mix products where dough moisture levels range from very low to very high. Low moisture, stiff products are easily mixed. Dough is gently mixed and developed without generating excessive heat.
HDX Continuous Mixer – The HDX or High Development Continuous Mixer is ideal for products such as buns, breads, English muffins and similar products, and is specifically designed to manufacture highly developed dough at low temperatures. 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.
MX Continuous Mixer – The MX Continuous Mixer is our most versatile mixer and is well suited for a wide range of products including cookies, snacks, batters, icings, pretzels, pizza and pastes. It is also an ideal first stage mixer for processes that require creme up and pre-blend stages.
FX Continuous Mixer – The FX Continuous Mixer is designed to distribute small amounts of moisture evenly into large amounts of powder. This is accomplished by lifting the powder into atomized liquids. This mixer is ideal for hydroscopic powders such as potato flakes used to make fabricated potato chips and any other low moisture mixtures.
LDX Continuous Mixer – The LDX Continuous Mixer is ideal for most types of cookies or any application where ingredients are blended before the flour is added. All ingredients except flour are combined in the creme 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.
