If your industrial bread and roll manufacturing equipment includes a traditional batch mixer, you may be interested in Continuous Mixing equipment from Exact Mixing that can help you reduce labor, cut costs, improve consistency and simplify your production process.
Exact Mixing, a Reading Bakery Systems brand, is the leading supplier of Continuous Mixing Systems for the food industry. We are dedicated to solving complex mixing challenges for customers around the globe and have installed more than 100 Continuous Mixers worldwide.
What Products Can be Made with a Continuous Mixer?
Since 1994, Exact Mixing has developed Continuous Mixing systems that are ideal for the bread and bun, baked snack, cracker, cookie, sweet goods, pizza, tortilla, and cracker industries. We also offer Continuous Mixing solutions for non-bakery items, such as protein bars, peanut butter, icing and pet treats.
Continuous mixing is not suited to every application, but neither is batch mixing. Exact Mixing can help you decide how continuous mixing technology could improve your process. Try our Continuous Mixing Calculator to explore whether your process is a good fit for continuous mixing.
In the case of bread and rolls, Exact Mixing offers the HDX Continuous Mixer which is designed specifically for mixing ultra-high absorption, highly developed dough, such as for breads, hamburger and hot dog buns, hard and soft rolls, English muffins, tortillas, multi-grain products, and similar products.
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.
Can I See a Demonstration of Exact Continuous Mixers?
To see your products being mixed in a continuous process, we encourage you to visit our Reading Bakery Systems Science & Innovation Center in Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania, where pilot versions of all types of Exact Mixers are available along with an automated bulk handling system, a horizontal dry blender, gravimetric dry feeders and mass flow liquid systems.
We have a 6-Step Demonstration Process that is designed to demonstrate the many benefits of Continuous Mixing using your ingredients and know-how at a pilot-scale level. This 6-Step Process will help identify advantages such as greater consistency and reduced labor expenses. In addition, you will learn how Continuous Mixing can meet the challenges of food safety and energy efficiency.
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.
On the other hand, cost of operation and ownership is almost always less expensive than batch mixing. Continuous Mixing payback opportunities come from increased yield, increased throughput, increased consistency, reduced manpower, reduced downstream handling equipment, and reduced energy.
