What is Continuous Mixing?
Batch mixing may be popular, but it may not be the most practical solution for your commercial bakery. The batch process involves loading the ingredients for each batch (either at once or in a pre-defined sequence), mixing them, and discharging the dough from the mixer before another batch is introduced.
Continuous Mixing, on the other hand, continuously meters ingredients directly into the mixing chamber and generates a continuous stream of mixed product at the exit of the mixer. The mixing may be done in stages to ensure all ingredients are properly incorporated. One mixer can feed multiple lines and can be operated with less labor and energy than batch mixing.
Exact Continuous Mixer Models
Exact Mixing offers a full line of mixer models and sizes that will successfully mix a wide variety of food products:
EX Continuous Mixer – Ideal for wheat-based products such as sweet goods, and crackers, and well-suited for all but the lowest viscosity powder/liquid mixtures; and designed to uniformly mix products where dough moisture levels range from very low to very high. The dough is gently mixed and developed without generating excessive heat.
HDX Continuous Mixer – This mixer is designed for buns, breads, English muffins, and similar products, and specifically for manufacturing highly developed dough at low temperatures. 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.
MX Continuous Mixer – Our most versatile mixer is well suited for a wide variety of products, including cookies, snacks, batters, icings, pretzels, pizza, and pastes. It is also an ideal first stage mixer for processes that require creme up and pre-blend stages.
FX Continuous Mixer – Perfect for hydroscopic powders, such as potato flakes used to make fabricated potato chips and any other low moisture mixtures, this mixer distributes small amounts of moisture evenly into large amounts of powder by lifting the powder into atomized liquids.
LDX Continuous Mixer – This mixer is ideal for cookies and other applications where ingredients are blended before flour is added. All ingredients except flour are combined in the crème-up stage, and special mixing elements cut the fat into the other ingredients. The flour is added before the development stage where the final dough is created.
