Is Continuous Mixing Right for Your Application?

Continuous Mixing Solution for Baked Chips & Crisps
The Exact Mixing 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.
In these types of products, limited moisture must be evenly distributed into a dry major ingredient which calls for more moisture than is made available. Contact between dries and liquids must be controlled to prevent the creation of wet and dry areas in the final dough.
The FX Continuous Mixer accomplishes precise moisture distribution by lifting hydroscopic powders, such as potato flakes, into atomized liquids. The mixer offers dough production rates up to 3,000 kg/hour and are dependent on the amount of moisture in the formulation, level of development required, temperature, and other factors.
The Mixer System can be arranged in many configurations, based on available space and offers many available options, including custom ingredient metering and ingredient blending systems and a Hydrobond rapid hydration system.
Hydrobond Technology for Added Efficiency
When used with a Continuous Mixer, Exact Mixing’s Hydrobond Technology makes the mixing process even faster and more efficient. It allows for even hydration of a dry ingredient stream (typically flour) before it enters the continuous mixer. No heat is added to the dough. The process offers a shorter mixing time, a smaller footprint, and saves time and money. The technology can be retrofitted to existing systems.
