Are There Advantages to Continuous Mixing?
The Continuous Mixing process eliminates the dough variations associated with batch cycles and produces a consistent product all day, every day. It can accurately deliver raw materials to the mixer at rates high enough to meet the demand of your mixing process. The advantages of Exact Continuous Mixing systems include:
- Production of a steady supply of uniform dough with consistent finished product weight, size and texture
- Uninterrupted precise ingredient metering to the mixer
- Quick and easy changeovers
- Evenly hydrated dough
- Dough leaves the mixer in usable size loaves without the need for additional equipment
- Eliminates chance of dough contamination
- One mixer can feed multiple lines
- Clamshell design simplifies inspection, cleaning and maintenance
- Automation reduces labor costs
- Smaller footprint than batch mixers, which saves space, money and energy
What is the Cost of a Continuous Mixing System?
Continuous mixing systems are almost always initially higher in cost than batch mixers. This is because the raw materials that enter the continuous mixer have to be metered, which requires ingredient feeders.
In contrast, the long-term cost of operation and ownership is almost always less expensive with continuous mixing. Continuous mixing payback opportunities come from increased yield, increased throughput, increased consistency, reduced manpower, reduced downstream handling equipment, and reduced energy.
