When the weather starts to heat up, industrial bakeries experience a significant uptick in the demand for dough for all types of buns. If your bakery continues to use batch mixers, you can expect to fall behind on production orders. With Exact Mixing continuous mixers, you can make your bun production lines more efficient and reduce costs.
Founded in 1994, Exact Mixing has spent nearly 30 years perfecting the continuous mixing method. Backed by our parent company, Reading Bakery Systems, our engineers have created five continuous mixers that handle every dough production order.
Batch Mixing vs. Continuous Mixing
Batch mixing is not precise and is known for causing unwanted dough variations. These variations can negatively affect the consistency of your finished products. Even if the dough is perfect when it leaves the batch mixer, changes often occur while the dough waits to be processed. This is known as the batch cycle.
Continuous mixing solves these problems by:
- Preventing variations from batch to batch
- Promoting even dough hydration
- Consistently dispersing ingredients
- Producing large quantities of uniform dough
- Promoting consistent finished weight, size, and texture
- Improving recipe control and repeatability
- Offering dough production rates of 50 to 10,000 kg/hour
- Eliminating chances of dough contamination
- Eliminating mixer loading errors
- Automating the process uses less labor and energy than batch mixing
- Achieving verifiable kill temperatures for non-baked products
What Is the Right Continuous Mixer for Bun Production Lines?
The engineers at Exact Mixing have designed each continuous mixer to specialize in blending the ingredients for certain types of dough products. The HDX Continuous Mixer represents a high-development model that mixes the ingredients for the high-absorption dough used to create hamburger and hot dog buns. This versatile continuous mixer model also forms the dough for bread, tortillas, hard rolls, and multi-grain products.
The HDX Continuous Mixer delivers uninterrupted ingredient measuring and mixing to help commercial bakeries produce higher yields to meet the soaring demand for buns. Production rates for this mixer range from 1,500 kg an hour to 10,000 kg per hour.
