Today's bakeries are applying modern methods of manufacture to create quality foodstuffs in large quantities. At the same time, they are trying to maintain the color, appearance, flavor and mouthfeel developed over decades and generations. Even the most skilled baker cannot create several hundred gallons of glaze as easily as making 5 gallons to dress the morning batch of cinnamon rolls.
A range of mixing processes, from simple blending of colors or flavors to the creation of smooth jelly fillings or fine emulsions, are common methods of achieving these goals. Our company offers a broad range of mixing technologies to suit most common blending needs found in modern large scale bakeries.

Mixing FAQs from the Baking Industry
We make a simple liquid-liquid blend of flavors and/or colors in a fluid stream. We also need to heat or cool a liquid streams. What does Admix offer for these processes?
The Admixer static blender delivers continuous processing with no moving parts. It offers side stream injectors, heat transfer and temperature control with jackets. It has easy-to-clean removable elements and specially polished finishes, and meets 3-A Sanitary Standard #35-04.
We are in need of simple tank agitation for various volumes throughout our plant. Can Admix accommodate this?
We have to run product through multiple passes in a high pressure homogenizer to filter out lumps and fisheyes. We also do several passes to finish refine our product before the packaging and filler machines. Is there an easier way?
Absolutely. For continuous processing, the DynaShear inline disperser and Boston Shearmill inline wet mill both provide tight emulsions. Typical droplet size with the DynaShear is 2-3 microns and as fine as 0.5 microns with the Boston Shearmill. They break down tough fisheyes in a single pass and deagglomerate a fluid stream to save filter cleaning and wasted raw material. Both are designed to run 24/7 and meet 3-A Sanitary Standard #36-01.
I need a safer way to incorporate powders. What does Admix offer?
