About Continuous Mixing Technology
Industrial mixing consists of four primary operations:
- Delivering bulk ingredients (typically flour) to the mixing area
- Measuring ingredients placed in the mixer
- Mixing the ingredients into a dough
- Handling the dough as it exits the mixer.
In a batch mixing process, these four operations are often treated, designed and implemented separately. Continuous Mixing, in comparison, integrates all four operations into a single process.
Bulk delivery, metering, mixing and dough handling become a cohesive, uninterrupted process. Metering systems are accurate and designed for accuracies of ±0.25% or better. Products with dough moisture levels that range from very low to very high are uniformly mixed without generating excessive heat. Dough is discharged from the mixer in a constant stream rather than in one large batch every 10 to 15 minutes.
Continuous Mixing for Fillings, Icings & Batters
The Exact Mixing MX Continuous Mixer is our most versatile mixer and is well suited for a wide range of products. It is designed specifically for mixing high-fat, high-solid products, such as icings, batters, pastes, peanut butter, muffins, pie fillings, cake-style donuts and other fat/sugar mixtures. Solid ingredients are quickly blended into solid fat to form a uniform mixture without creating excessive heat.
The MX Continuous Mixer is an ideal first stage mixer for processes that require creme up and pre-blend stages. 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. It offers dough production rates up to 8,000 kg/hour.
What is Included in an Exact Continuous Mixing System?
A complete Exact Mixing Continuous Mixing System includes the mixer, blender, materials handling and ingredients metering, as well as the control system that monitors and distributes product between them.
Mixers are designed using Loss-in-Weight technology – the most accurate feeding technology available. And all metering and mixing procedures are monitored and initiated by the control system so the operator is always able to confirm and modify as needed.
We provide complete systems, testing and installation supervision for both straight dough and liquid ferment systems.
