Batch Mixing versus Continuous Mixing
Batch mixing has been in use far longer than Continuous Mixing. However, higher-quality mixers, control systems, and metering devices developed in the past decade have resulted in Continuous Mixing Systems that are accurate, easy to use and maintain, and reliable, including for breads, cookies and crackers.
- Bulk delivery of materials: The delivery systems used to deliver bulk materials to the mixer are exactly the same for batch and continuous mixing. In general, they are brought from a source such as a silo or super sack unloader to the mixing receiver by pneumatic transfer. Manual additions are also possible in continuous mixing by using a ribbon blender. The difference is that adding raw materials to a continuous mixer is more accurate than with a batch mixer in nearly every case.
- Measuring of materials into the mixer: It is often necessary to use additional weighing equipment and controls to get the “proper size” batch of ingredients to the batch mixer. With a continuous mixer, all metering is done at the mixer itself. Metering directly at the mixer leads to greater automation, greater accuracy, and a significant cost savings over the long term.
- Mixing: Studies have shown that continuous mixing eliminates the problems associated with batch cycles and produces a consistent dough 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, however, continuous mixing is less expensive, and the savings increase as production rates increase.
- Dough produced in usable size loaves: Batch mixers make large “batches” of dough. Manufacturers need additional equipment to resize the batches. This can cause time delays and unnecessary exposure to the environment during which contamination can occur. Continuous mixers produce a continuous stream of dough that can be sliced automatically into loaves by the mixer.
Exact Mixing offers a variety of mixer models to mix different types of products successfully. Production volumes range from 50 kg/hour to over 10,000 kg/hour. This can be accomplished in an almost employee-free environment, which increases cost savings and value.
