Improve the baking processes and products of your industrial bakery by taking advantage of state-of-the-art Exact Mixing Continuous Mixing equipment.
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 is Continuous Mixing?
Industrial mixing involves four main operations:
- Delivering bulk ingredients (typically flour) to the mixing area;
- Measuring ingredients placed in the mixer;
- Mixing the ingredients into a dough;
- Handling the dough as it exits the mixer.
In the batch mixing process, these four operations are often treated, designed, and implemented separately. Continuous Mixing integrates all four operations into a single, uninterrupted process.
Metering systems are accurate and designed for accuracies of ±0.25% or better. Products with very low to very high dough moisture levels are uniformly mixed without generating excessive heat. Dough is discharged from the mixer in a constant stream instead of in one large batch every 10 to 15 minutes.
Continuous Mixing Applications
Cookies, Snacks, Fillings: Our most versatile mixer, the MX Continuous Mixer, is designed for mixing a wide range of products including cookies, snacks, cake-style donuts, batters, icings, pastes, peanut butter, pie fillings, and other fat/sugar mixtures. Solid ingredients are quickly blended into solid fat to form a uniform mixture without creating excessive heat. It is also used for products where inclusions are a large portion of the recipe. Inclusions can be added near the exit of the mixer to obtain a uniform mix with no damage.
Crackers & Wheat-Based Snacks: Many products can be produced in our EX Continuous Mixer, including crackers, bagels, pizza, cookies, bread snacks, pretzels, rye chips, sushka, pie crusts, pocket sandwiches and pastries, pet treats, and other low- to mid-absorption, fully developed doughs. It uniformly mixes products with a variety of dough moisture levels, reduces lay time, eliminates dough troughs, and reduces labor and energy thanks to full automation.
Chips & Crisps: The Exact FX Continuous Mixer is designed for products where critical moisture levels determine final product texture, such as baked potato chips, stackable potato chips, rice crisps, corn chips, veggie chips, potato snack, multigrain chips, and more. A high-speed mixing shaft lifts powdered ingredients into and through atomized liquids sprayed into the mixing chamber.
Buns, Breads & Rolls: Exact Mixing offers the HDX Continuous Mixer which is designed explicitly for mixing ultra-high absorption, highly developed dough, such as for breads, hamburger and hot dog buns, hard rolls, English muffins, tortillas, multi-grain products, and similar products. This two-stage system mixes all ingredients into a uniform mass in the first stage with a twin-screw mixer, and then, in the second stage, kneads the dough to the proper development level with a single-screw mixer.
