When you want to simplify your operation and improve the quality of your final products, consider Reading Bakery Systems’ continuous mixing technologies. These mixing and dough kneading machines eliminate undesirable dough variations and may be superior to batch mixing.
With more than 120 years of commercial baking experience, the equipment solutions from Reading Bakery Systems, headquartered in Robesonia, PA, are designed and engineered to meet your production needs. We work side-by-side with customers to meet their process and product challenges with innovative thinking and high quality systems and components.
Advantages of Continuous Mixing
Batch mixing often leads to dough variations from batch to batch that affect the consistency of your finished products. Even if the dough leaves the batch mixer in perfect condition, changes can occur to the dough while it waits to be processed.
Continuous mixing, on the other hand, enables you to produce large quantities of uniform dough and eliminate those undesirable variations. Other advantages include:
- better integration of minor ingredients
- more accurate recipe control and fewer errors
- dough production rates from 100 to 10,000 kg/hour
- more compact; requires less space
- improved food safety; dough is never exposed to the environment
- operate with less labor and energy than batch mixing
As a result of newer technologies, continuous mixing can now accurately deliver raw materials to the mixer at rates high enough to meet the demand of the mixing process, making it possible to produce as much as 20,000 pounds of dough per hour.
