What is Continuous Mixing?
Batch mixing may be popular, but it may not be the most practical solution for your commercial bakery. The batch process involves loading the ingredients for each batch (either at once or in a pre-defined sequence), mixing them, and discharging the dough from the mixer before another batch is introduced.
Continuous Mixing, on the other hand, continuously meters ingredients directly into the mixing chamber and generates a continuous stream of mixed product at the exit of the mixer. The mixing may be done in stages to ensure all ingredients are properly incorporated. One mixer can feed multiple lines and can be operated with less labor and energy than batch mixing.
Continuous Mixing Applications
Exact Mixing offers a complete line of mixer models and sizes that will successfully mix a wide range of products, including:
Baked Goods, Fillings & Icings: The MX Continuous Mixer is our most versatile mixer and is suitable for a wide range of products including cookies, snacks, pizza, pretzels, muffins, cake-style donuts, icings, batters, 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.
Cookies & Other 2-Stage Products: The LDX Continuous Mixer is well-suited for most types of cookies and other applications where ingredients are blended before flour is added. All ingredients except flour are combined in the crème-up stage, and special mixing elements cut the fat into the other ingredients. The flour is added before the development stage where the final dough is created.
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.
Wheat-Based Bakery Products: Specifically designed for mixing low- to mid-absorption, fully developed doughs, our EX Continuous Mixer is well-suited for crackers, pretzels, bagels, pizza, cookies, pie crusts, pocket sandwiches, pastries, pet treats and more.
Crisp Products: 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.
