What is Continuous Mixing?
Continuous Mixing is the process of continuously metering ingredients directly into the mixing chamber and as a result, generating a continuous stream of mixed product at the exit of the mixer. The mixing may be done in stages to ensure all ingredients are incorporated properly. The Continuous Mixing process eliminates the problems associated with batch cycles and produces a consistent product all day, every day.
Crackers, Bagels, Pizza, Pretzels, Pie Crust, Sweet Goods, Pet Treats
Exact Mixing offers the EX Continuous Mixer which is designed specifically for mixing low absorption, stiff, wheat-based dough. The thorough mixing action quickly develops a mass and evenly blends the leavening agents into the dough for a uniform piece size after the oven.
Cookies & Other Products That Need 2-Stage Mixing
For products that require ingredients to be blended before adding most of the flour, the Exact LDX Continuous Mixer is an excellent choice. In the first mixing stage, all minor ingredients can be combined with some of the flour and the fat can be cut in. In the final stage, the remaining flour is added to create the final dough.
Buns, Breads, Rolls, English Muffins, Tortillas
The HDX or High Development Continuous Mixer is ideal for ultra-high absorption doughs. In the first stage, all ingredients are mixed into a uniform mass with a twin screw mixer. In a separate section, a single screw mixer kneads the dough to the proper development level. This mixer offers dough production rates from 1,500 to 10,000 kg/hour.
Potato Snacks, Corn Chips, Rice Chips, Veggie Chips
The FX Continuous Mixer distributes small amounts of moisture evenly into large amounts of powder. This is accomplished by lifting the powder into atomized liquids. This mixer is ideal for hydroscopic powders such as potato flakes used to make fabricated potato chips or any other low moisture mixtures.It prevents the creation of wet and dry areas in the final dough.
Cookies, Snacks, Nut Bars, Batters, Icings, Pastes
The MX Continuous Mixer, our most versatile mixer, is specifically designed for products with dough moisture levels that range from very low to high, as well as those with inclusions that need to be protected from damage. It’s an excellent solution for products that require high-energy mixing and features special mixing actions to ensure inclusion integrity.
