Exact Mixing, a leading industrial mixing equipment supplier, designs and manufactures five types of continuous mixing systems. Since 1994, Exact Mixing has offered a much better alternative to blending the dough to create baked goods. Before 1994, batch-mixing systems dominated the dough processing industry. However, commercial bakeries quickly discovered that using batch mixers limited revenue and cost a lot of money to operate.
Continuous mixers designed and manufactured by the leading industrial mixing equipment supplier, Exact Mixing, increase productivity while reducing production costs.
How Do Continuous Mixing Systems Operate?
Four stages comprise the dough-blending process. With batch mixers, you must wait for each of the four stages to finish before loading another batch of dough for processing. Continuous mixing systems constantly feed dough ingredients into the mixing chamber, and then, one mixer feeds multiple lines to increase production yields. For example, as one dough recipe gently kneads in the development area, a new batch of carefully measured dry ingredients moves into a mixing chamber where moisture evenly distributes over the dry ingredients.
Fully automated continuous mixing systems deliver several advantages over using batch mixers to process raw dough. A steady flow of uniformly developed dough comes out of the development stage with the same size, shape, weight, and texture. Your customers expect consistency, and continuous mixing systems deliver on the promise to create the same dough for every order. Automation also means your industrial bakery operates machines that ensure precise ingredient measuring without needing employees to monitor the dough-bending process. Because of our proprietary Hydrobond Technology, dough evenly hydrates regardless of the amount of moisture added before the development stage.
The team of engineers at Exact Mixing designed the mixing chamber to appear like a clamshell. Although visually appealing, the true benefit of a clamshell design is that it allows for quick changeovers. You can start processing a different kind of dough with little, if any, downtime. The clamshell design of our continuous mixing chambers also prevents cross-contamination, representing one of the most common and severe types of food safety violations. Regarding eco-friendly benefits, continuous mixing systems leave much smaller carbon footprints than the carbon footprints left behind by batch mixers.
