Batch Mixing vs. Continuous Mixing
During batch mixing, the ingredients for one batch are loaded (either at once or in a pre-defined sequence), mixed, and discharged from the mixer before another batch is introduced. This process often results in undesirable dough variations from batch to batch.
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. This process provides you with consistent, repeatable dough all day.
With a Continuous Mixer, finished products have a more consistent weight, size, and texture, and customers save space, money, and energy.
Continuous Mixing for Pet Snacks and Treats
In addition to crackers, pretzels, pie crusts, bagels, sweet goods, and other wheat-based snacks, the Exact Mixing EX Continuous Mixer is the perfect mixer for pet treats.
Our process is ideal not only because the products are well mixed, but because they are also heated to the proper kill temperature in the mixer. The dough can be quickly heated to the kill temperature within a range or 1 degree and then cooled. This is done automatically and with no handling or manual transporting of the dough. The EX mixer offers dough production rates up to 7,500 kg/hour.
A complete Exact Mixing Continuous Mixing System includes the mixer, blender, materials handling and ingredients metering equipment, and a control system that monitors and distributes product between them. We provide complete systems, testing and installation supervision.
