Advantages of Continuous Mixing
- Improves reliability and repeatability
- Creates consistent bun and roll shape
- Eliminates surface imperfections
- Accommodates “within spec” flour variations
- Maximizes water absorption—reduces cost of ingredients, improves yield
- Eliminates dough contamination
- Quick and easy sanitation
- Reduces labor and peak energy demand
- Eliminates mixer loading errors
- Easy to learn and operate
- Allows consistent time between mixing and further processing
- Dough exits the mixer in usable sized loaves
Continuous Mixers and Applications
Continuous Mixing means that ingredients are continuously metered directly into the mixing chamber, generating a continuous stream of mixed product at the exit of the mixer. Mixing can also be done in stages to ensure that all ingredients are properly incorporated.
Crackers: Consider the Exact EX Continuous Mixer for cracker products and other low-absorption, stiff, wheat-based doughs. The thorough but gentle mixing action quickly develops a mass and evenly blends leavening agents into the dough without generating excessive heat.
Buns, Breads & Rolls: The HDX Continuous Mixer was specifically designed for mixing ultra-high absorption, highly developed dough, such as for bread, hard rolls, hamburger and hot dog buns, English muffins, tortillas, multi-grain products, and similar products.
Crisp Products: 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, corn chips, veggie chips, rice crisps, potato snack, multigrain chips, and more.
Cookies: The LDX Continuous Mixer is designed for cookies and any application where ingredients are blended before the flour is added. The two-stage mixing process is ideal for products that benefit from creme up and final mixing stages.
Fillings, Icings & Batters: The MX Continuous Mixer is designed to mix high-fat, high-solid products, such as icings, peanut butter, muffins, pie fillings, cake-style donuts, batters, and other fat/sugar mixtures. Blending is done quickly to form a uniform mixture without creating excessive heat.
The Continuous Mixing Calculator can help you identify whether your process would be a good fit for continuous mixing. If you want to see your products being mixed in a continuous process, schedule a visit to our Science & Innovation Center in Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania, where pilot versions of all types of Exact Mixers are available.
