Versatility is important for commercial bakeries. If you operate a bakery that produces dough for a wide variety of baked goods, you want to invest in dough-blending systems that can handle diverse production orders. For example, Exact Mixing designs and manufactures a line of five continuous mixing systems that complete every type of dough production order for commercial bakeries. We also are known for offering industrial mixing equipment for production of biscuits, cookies, and crackers.
What Are the Advantages of Installing Industrial Mixing Equipment for Production of Biscuits, Cookies & Crackers?
Before Exact Mixing opened for business in 1994, industrial bakeries had just one option when it came to industrial mixing equipment for biscuits, cookies, and crackers. Batch Mixers dominated the dough-processing industry, and these machines continue to keep commercial bakeries stocked with raw dough products. However, batch mixers have one serious flaw.
It takes too long for bakeries to meet production quotas, which is a huge problem when the time comes to complete large rush orders.
The dough-blending process consists of four distinct stages. With batch mixers, you must wait for one production order to complete the fourth and final stage before measuring ingredients to start a second batch of dough. The five continuous mixing systems designed and manufactured by Exact Mixing constantly measure and feed ingredients into a mixing chamber to increase production volumes by as much as four times more than what batch mixers can accomplish.
It is not just much higher production yields that allow continuous mixers to outperform batch mixers. Exact Mixing has developed automated technology to improve product consistency, such as dough that possesses uniform size, shape, weight, and texture for each production order. Automation helps commercial bakeries reduce labor costs by not having to assign workers to monitor each stage of the dough-blending process. Our automated continuous mixing systems also evenly hydrate dough, which minimizes the risk of losing money because of food waste.
What Continuous Mixers Are the Best Systems for Biscuit, Cookie, & Cracker Production?
The engineers at Exact Mixing have come up with three continuous mixer models to handle production orders that require dough for biscuits, cookies, and crackers.
First, the LDX Continuous Mixer is specifically designed to blend every dry ingredient except flour before adding flour to send all dry ingredients into a mixing chamber. This machine is ideal for processing the dough used to make biscuits because you can set a production rate for the delicate baked good as low as 1,500 kg an hour.
As the most versatile continuous mixing system designed and manufactured by Exact Mixing, the MX Continuous Mixer is a first-stage mixer that is appropriate to operate for blending ingredients that form the dough for biscuits, crackers, and cookies. The most significant benefit of installing continuous mixers is on display for the MX because our engineers have developed automated technology that vastly improves changeover times.
For thin snacks such as crackers, the FX Continuous Mixer operates for dough products in which critical moisture levels determine texture. In addition to snacks, the FX is perfect for blending the ingredients used to form the dough for rice crisps, multigrain chips, and baked potato chips.
