Industrial bakeries can count on a consistently high level of quality for their snack food production with ingredient metering systems and Continuous Mixers from Exact Mixing.
Exact Mixing is a world leader in the manufacture of Continuous Mixing Systems for the food industry. For almost three decades, we have solved complex mixing challenges for customers around the globe, developing Continuous Mixing systems for the baked snack, cookie, cracker, sweet goods, pizza, tortilla, and bread and buns industries. We also offer Continuous Mixing solutions for non-bakery items, such as protein bars, peanut butter, icing, and pet treats.
Ingredient Metering Systems
Dry Materials Metering
We design our systems with gravimetric, Loss-in-Weight technology for uninterrupted, precise metering of dry ingredients to the Mixer. The Loss-In-Weight feeder receives a set point from the system recipe control. The actual process value is returned to the system recipe control from the feeder. The two values (set point and actual value) are constantly compared and recorded. The two values are usually the same, but if there is a difference, the system alerts the operator to investigate.
Liquid ingredients are metered with metering pumps, flow meters, and closed-loop controls. The liquid systems can be jacketed for heating or cooling depending on the ingredient needs. Just like with Dry Metering, the two values (set point and actual value) are constantly compared and recorded. The two values are typically the same, but if there is a difference, the system alerts the operator to investigate.
Special Requirements Metering
Some ingredients call for specially engineered metering systems. Examples are easily damaged particulates, solid fats, two-phase liquids, pastes, and other dough streams. Exact Mixing engineers are experienced in all these metering systems and can meet the most difficult metering challenges.
Exact Mixing provides complete systems, testing, and installation supervision for straight dough and liquid ferment systems.
Each complete Continuous Mixing System includes the mixer, blender, materials handling and ingredients metering, and the control system that monitors and distributes product between them.
