Continuous Mixing Solution

Batch mixing often leads to variations from one batch of dough to another that can negatively affect the consistency of your bread and rolls.Even if the dough exits the batch mixer in perfect condition, changes can occur while it awaits processing.

Continuous mixing solves these problems and offers many other advantages, such as:

  • Improves reliability and repeatability
  • Eliminates mixer loading errors
  • Creates consistent bun and roll shapes
  • Accommodates “within spec” flour variations
  • Minor ingredients can be automatically pre-blended before metering
  • Maximizes water absorption
  • Allows consistent time between mixing and further processing
  • Reduces ingredient cost and improves yield
  • Eliminates dough contamination
  • Reduces labor and energy expenses
  • Easy to learn and operate
  • Dough exits the mixer in usable sized loaves

The Exact Mixing HDX Continuous Mixer was specifically designed for mixing ultra-high absorption, highly developed doughs such as for bread, hot dog and hamburger buns, hard rolls, English muffins, and similar products.

This two-stage High Development Continuous Mixer first mixes all ingredients into a uniform mass with a twin-screw mixer. Then, in a separate section, the dough is kneaded to the proper development level with a single-screw mixer. The mixer offers dough production rates of 1,500 to 10,000 kg/hour.

Thorough mixing action quickly develops strong bonds in gluten strands. Peak development and consistent delivery of dough at the optimum temperature is achieved through a precise combination of speeds in the mixing and developing sections of the system.

Thanks to newer technologies, continuous mixing now accurately delivers raw materials to the mixer at rates high enough to meet the demands of the mixing process. This enables you to make as much as 20,000 pounds of dough per hour.

A complete Continuous Mixing System includes the mixer, blender, materials handling and ingredients metering equipment, as well as a control system that monitors and distributes product between them.
