Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
- What is the Difference Between Batch and Continuous Mixing?
Batch mixing involves loading ingredients for each batch separately, mixing the dough, and discharging it from the mixer before introducing another batch. The time in between batches often causes inconsistencies due to processing variations and control mechanisms.
In Continuous Mixing, ingredients are continuously metered directly into the mixing chamber and generate a constant stream of mixed dough at the exit of the mixer. The result is even dough hydration, better integration of minor ingredients, and none of the dough variables caused by batch mixing. A continuous mixer can be operated with less labor and energy than batch mixing, and one mixer can handle multiple lines.
- Are Certain Products Appropriate for Continuous Mixing?
Continuous Mixing is a proven solution in the baked snack, pastry, sweet goods, cookie, pretzel, chip, crackers, bars, pizza, tortilla, and bread and bun industries. Continuous Mixing solutions are also available from us for non-bakery items, such as protein bars, peanut butter, icings, and pet treats.
