Continuous Mixing Solutions
Continuous Mixing is the process of continuously metering ingredients directly into the mixing chamber to generate 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 has numerous advantages compared to batch mixing, including:
- No undesirable variations from batch to batch
- Consistent finished weight, size and texture
- Even dough hydration
- Recipe control and repeatability
- High production rates with one mixer
- Completely automated process
- Eliminates chance of contamination
- Can be operated with less labor and energy than batch mixing
- For non-baked products, achieve verifiable kill temperatures
The Exact EX Continuous Mixer uniformly mixes products with a variety of dough moisture levels and is ideal for gentle kneading of wheat-based products, such as pretzels, pizza, crackers, sweet goods, and pet treats.
The HDX or High Development Continuous Mixer is designed to first mix all ingredients into a uniform mass with a twin screw mixer. Separately, the dough is kneaded to the proper development level with a single screw mixer. It is well-suited to breads, rolls, buns, English muffins and other high-absorption products.
If your product line involves cookies and other products that require a two-stage mixing process, the LDX Continuous Mixer is an excellent choice. It combines minor ingredients and some flour in the first stage with special mixing elements to cut in fat. In the final stage, the remaining flour is added to create the final dough.
When you need high energy mixing for high moisture / high fat content doughs, such as icings, cremes, batters, fillings and low viscosity mixtures, the Exact MX Continuous Mixer is an excellent choice, and can also be used as the first stage mixer in multi-stage operations.
For hydroscopic powders and other low moisture mixtures, consider the FX Continuous Mixer, which can distribute small amounts of moisture evenly into large amounts of powder.
Batch Mixing Solutions
The Thomas L. Green Vertical Spindle Mixer is ideal for biscuit, cookie, cracker doughs that require a two-stage mixing process with a fermentation period in between. The mixer allows the same dough to be mixed twice and stay in the same trough throughout the process. After the first mixing stage, the dough rests in the trough and can then be repositioned beneath the spindles and remixed with the final ingredients. All mixer functions are controlled from one location, including mixing head movement, paddle operation and mix time.
