Since 1994, we have solved complex mixing challenges for customers across the globe, enabling them to eliminate the problems associated with batch mixing and produce consistent products all day, every day.
How Batch and Continuous Mixing Compare
Material delivery systems: The delivery systems that deliver bulk materials to the mixer are the same for batch and continuous mixing, but adding raw materials to a Continuous Mixer is more accurate than with a batch mixer in almost every case.
Measuring materials: Getting a “proper size” batch of ingredients to the batch mixer often requires extra weighing equipment and controls. With a Continuous Mixer, all metering is done at the mixer itself, which leads to more automation, greater accuracy, and a significant cost savings in the long term.
Mixing: Studies show that Continuous Mixing eliminates the problems associated with batch cycles and produces a consistent product all day, every day. In terms of cost, batch mixing is slightly less expensive than continuous mixing at the lowest production rates (500 to 1500 pounds per hour). At higher rates, continuous mixing is less expensive, and the savings increase as production rates increase.
Batch sizes: Batch mixers make large “batches” of dough and manufacturers need additional equipment to resize them. This requires more time and unnecessary exposure to the environment where contamination can occur. In contrast, dough exits Continuous Mixers in a continuous stream that can be sliced automatically into usable size loaves by the mixer.
Continuous Mixing for Bread, Bun & Roll Production
Exact Mixing has specifically developed the HDX Continuous Mixer for ultra-high absorption, highly developed dough, including breads, hamburger and hot dog buns, hard rolls, English muffins, tortillas, multi-grain products, and other similar products.
This High Development Continuous Mixer is designed to manufacture highly developed dough at low temperatures. The HDX Mixer, a 2-stage system, provides precise and uninterrupted ingredient metering to the mixer and mixes all ingredients into a uniform mass with a twin-screw mixer in the first stage. In the second stage, the dough is kneaded to the proper development level with a single screw mixer.
The HDX Mixer offers dough production rates from 1,500 to 10,000 kg/hour.
