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.
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 specifically 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 specifically 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.
What is the Cost of a Continuous Mixing System?
Continuous Mixing systems are almost always higher in cost initially than batch mixers. This is because the raw materials that enter the mixer have to be metered, which requires ingredient feeders. On the other hand, cost of operation and ownership is almost always less expensive with Continuous Mixing. Payback opportunities come from increased yield, increased throughput, increased consistency, reduced manpower, reduced downstream handling equipment, and reduced energy.
