As a commercial bakery specializing in processing the dough used to create baked goods such as crackers, does your production line have the equipment it needs to handle a sudden increase in demand? If your bakery has installed a batch mixing system, the answer is a resounding no. Instead, consider an investment in high-performance mixers from Exact Mixing for your cracker production needs.
Batch mixing systems cannot handle large production orders for dough because they operate the four stages of the mixing process separately. Each batch of dough must complete the ingredient delivery, measurement, mixing, and development stages before a second batch of dough can be processed. If your bakery receives a request for an immediate ramping up of production, you cannot handle the additional volume because of the way batch mixers are designed and manufactured.
Founded in Memphis, Tennessee in 1994, Exact Mixing revolutionized the dough processing paradigm by designing and manufacturing continuous mixing systems. Our team of engineers designs and manufactures continuous mixers to treat the dough-mixing process as four closely integrated stages. Full automation allows each of our machines to complete each of the four stages at the same time, which increases production yields to meet the demands of customers that request more dough for crackers. With five models in our lineup, Exact Mixing can handle the requests for dough that form the foundation for virtually every type of baked good.
What Are the Advantages of Continuous Mixers?
Continuous mixing represents a finely-tuned dough-mixing process that combines four stages into one uninterrupted operation. The result of using high-performance mixers for snack production is several benefits that start with improving product consistency. Continuous mixers create dough for baked goods that remain consistent in size, shape, weight, and texture. Our machines remove surface imperfections, as well as accommodate flour variations that keep recipes within specifications. The ability of Exact Mixing continuous mixers to feed multiple lines at the same time helps boost production rates, which increases the revenue generated by your commercial bakery.
As the most important technological breakthrough for continuous mixers, automation reduces the need for staffing workers to monitor each stage of the production process. The result is savings on labor costs, as well as eliminating costly errors that occur when loading dry ingredients. Proprietary Hydrobond Technology maximizes moisture absorption, which significantly decreases food waste and improves production yields. With the capability to produce dough at low mixing temperatures, continuous mixing systems consume much less energy than the energy consumed by batch mixers. Fast and simple sanitation saves time and prevents contamination from outside sources.
Exact Mixing offers five continuous mixer models, with the EX continuous mixer specializing in creating the dough used for crackers and wheat-based products. Our team of engineers designed this machine to gently knead dough during the development stage. Operating with a single-screw blade, the EX continuous mixer is perfect for dough recipes that call for low to mid-absorption dry ingredients. Not only does the EX continuous mixer specialize in producing the dough used for cracks and wheat-based products, but the machine also develops the dough used to create pretzels and pet treats. You can quickly ramp up production rates that reach more than 7,500 kg per hour.
Features of High-Performance Mixers for Cracker Production
Continuous mixing systems, including the EX models, come with a mixer and blender, as well as materials handling and ingredients measuring equipment. They also include an automated control system that monitors and distributes dry ingredients from stage one through stage four of the dough-mixing process. Our team of engineers develops each continuous mixer with Loss-in-Weight Technology, which is the most accurate ingredient-feeding technology available to commercial bakeries.
