When you need an industrial mixer that will provide a consistent, uniform dough stream to your production line at the same rate it is being used, consider Exact Continuous Mixers from Reading Bakery Systems.
Batch mixing often lacks precision and leads to variations in dough, which can 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 controls ingredient metering to the mixer so that it’s precise and uninterrupted, simplifies and provides tight control over the mixing process, avoids dough contamination because the dough is never exposed to the environment, and can be performed with less labor and energy than batch mixing. Consider continuous mixers for these and many other products:
Cracker, Bagels, Pizza, Pie Crust, Pastries, Pretzels, Pet Treats
Exact Mixing offers the EX Continuous Mixer which is designed specifically for mixing low absorption, stiff 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 Require 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 the dough is kneaded to the proper development level with a single screw mixer. The mixer is designed for the manufacture of highly developed dough at low temperatures. It 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.
Nut Bars, Protein Bars
Exact Mixing offers the MX Continuous Mixer which is specifically designed for products where dough moisture levels range from very low to high and those with inclusions that must be protected from damage. It’s an excellent mixer for products requiring high energy mixing and features special mixing actions to insure inclusion integrity.
If you are unsure about which type of continuous mixer may be right for your products, we encourage you to visit the Reading Bakery Systems Science & Innovation Center in Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania, where you will find pilot version of all types of Exact mixers and can see your products being mixed in a continuous process.
Almost any product that can be made on a traditional batch mixer can be made on an industrial continuous mixer. Call us at (01) 610-693-5816 or click here to learn more about the world’s most advanced commercial baking systems.
