Continuous Mixing Innovations

Batch mixing can lead to dough variations that affect the consistency of your finished products.Continuous mixing has grown in popularity for its ability to continuously produce a more consistent dough.

The advantages of continuous mixing include:

  • More precise delivery of raw materials to the mixer
  • Improved consistency of weight, size and texture
  • Elimination of dough troughs
  • Recipe control and repeatability
  • Completely automated process

Exact Continuous Mixers come in a variety of sizes, ranging from 50 to 10,000 kg/hour. Models include the Exact EX Continuous Mixer, which is ideal for crackers, pretzels, sweet goods, pet treats and other wheat-based products, and the Exact HDX Continuous Mixer, which is ideal for products such as buns, breads, English muffins and similar products and is designed to manufacture highly developed dough at low temperatures.

Advanced Oven Systems

Customers in the global biscuit, cookie and cracker industry have trusted the Thomas L. Green PRISM OVEN for more than a century. The flexible single-pass baking platform offers Direct Gas Fired (DGF) Zones, Emithermic (Radiant / Convection) Zones and Convection Zones, and is designed to improve consistency and promote uniform product quality, color, taste and texture.

The Reading Pretzel SPECTRUM OVEN® offers the same flexibility as the PRISM OVEN for baking pretzels, bread snacks, crisps and potato snacks, with a number of different combinations of heat transfer zones in one modular design. The convection baking platform promotes reliable, consistent baking. Add a separate, optional Multi-Pass Dryer to increase oven speed, production throughput and process control.
