Simplify Your Process with Continuous Mixing
Batch mixing often lacks precision and can lead to variations in dough, which impact the consistency of your finished products. Even if the dough is perfect when it leaves the batch mixer, changes can occur to the dough while it waits to be processed.
Continuous mixing, on the other hand, offers the following advantages and more:
- produce large quantities of uniform dough
- more precise delivery of raw materials to the mixer
- prevent undesirable variations in dough from batch to batch
- promotes even dough hydration
- consistent finished weight, size and texture
- produces a continuous stream of dough that can be sliced automatically into loaves by the mixer without additional equipment
- eliminates chance of dough contamination
- automation reduces labor costs
For cookies and other products that require ingredients to be blended before adding most of the flour, the 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. This mixer offers dough production rates from 1,500 to 7,500 kg/hour.
Low-absorption, stiff doughs, such as cracker, bagel, pretzel, pizza and pet treats doughs, are perfect for the EX Continuous Mixer. This mixer uniformly mixes products with different dough moisture levels and offers dough production rates from 100 to 10,000 kg/hour.
If you produce buns, breads, rolls or tortillas, the HDX or High Development Continuous Mixer is well-suited to ultra-high absorption doughs. All ingredients are first mixed into a uniform mass with a twin screw mixer. The dough is then kneaded in a separate section to the proper development level with a single screw mixer. This mixer offers dough production rates from 1,500 to 10,000 kg/hour.
