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 for Crackers
The Exact EX Continuous Mixer is designed to uniformly mix products with very low to very high dough moisture levels. Dough is gently mixed and developed without generating excessive heat. Low moisture, stiff products are easily mixed. The thorough mixing action quickly develops a mass and evenly blends leavening agents into the dough for a uniform piece size after the oven.
The EX Mixer is ideal for wheat-based products such as crackers, pretzels, pizza, sweet goods, as well as for all but the lowest viscosity powder/liquid mixtures and offers dough production rates from 50 to 10,000 kg/hour. Mixer production rates 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 different configurations, based on your available space. For factories with lower ceiling heights, we also offer a low-profile design.
Our Continuous Mixing Calculator can help you identify whether your process would be a good fit for continuous mixing.
