You have two options for industrial bakery dough mixing systems. The option that you choose to install is the most important business decision for your commercial bakery.
Before 1994, batch mixing systems represented the only option bakeries had for blending the ingredients used to process dough. Although batch mixers perform well enough to meet production demands, it takes a considerable amount of time to generate dough because the system can create just one batch at a time. Although the batch mixing system is not broken, it certainly could use considerable improvement.
This brings us to 1994 when Exact Mixing began offering a line of continuous mixers. Our line of continuous mixers changed the way commercial bakeries viewed the dough-blending process. No longer do they have to wait 15 minutes for each batch of dough to leave the development stage to start a new production order. By installing a continuous mixing system, bakeries immediately experienced a dramatic increase in yields while lowering operating costs.
What Are the Benefits of Installing a Continuous Mixing System?
Lowering costs and increasing production yields is the big picture when discussing the many benefits of continuous mixing systems. Several factors play an important role in achieving the goal of improving your commercial bakery’s bottom line.
Let’s start by emphasizing the importance of continuous mixers generating dough that remains consistent in size, shape, weight, and texture. Our engineers have developed a tool that automatically removes surface imperfections. Consistently developed dough decreases the amount of food waste that is the direct result of surface imperfections. Another reason why the dough formed by a continuous mixing system remains consistent in size, shape, weight, and texture concerns a much more thorough blending of minor ingredients.
Our industrial bakery dough mixing systems evenly distribute moisture according to each recipe. Dough released from the blending stage is never overly saturated or dry enough to form cracks on the surface. Since one mixer feeds multiple lines, your bakery can double, triple, and even quadruple the production rates achieved by commercial bakeries that install batch mixing systems. Our fully automated self-monitoring and self-correcting industrial bakery dough mixing systems allows your business to reduce labor costs.
Super-fast changeovers decrease the amount of time between different production orders. Our engineers have developed a chamber protection system that prevents outside contaminants from tainting blend dough ingredients, which helps your commercial bakery prevent the type of cross-contamination that leads to food safety issues.
Exact Mixing offers five continuous mixer models:
- EX Continuous Mixer
- FX Continuous Mixer
- MX Continuous Mixer
- HDX Continuous Mixer
- LDX Continuous Mixer
Which Continuous Mixer is the Right One for My Bakery?
The team members at Exact Mixing want you to choose the right continuous mixer for your bakery. In addition to describing each of our continuous mixer models, we also offer live demonstrations at the Reading Bakery Systems Science & Innovation Center located in Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania. You get to see each of our continuous mixers in action, as well as learn how to optimize performance by listening to the tips provided by our team of engineers.
The area we have dedicated to showcasing our line of continuous mixers also presents information on how to maximize the performance of automated bulk handling systems, as well as gravimetric dry feeders and horizontal dry blenders. You get the opportunity to work closely with our team of engineers to test each mixer and try out different processing techniques to ensure you select the right continuous blender for your commercial bakery.
