Consumers demand more benefits from standard food stuffs. Cereals need to offer a great variety of flavors, colors and shapes while providing balanced nutrition. These needs are fulfilled with innovative recipes, high quality ingredients and vitamin/mineral fortification.
A range of mixing processes are involved in this industry, from simple blending of flavors and colors to the creation of smooth dispersions of hard-to-wet out powders. Sustainability is driving the industry to eliminate waste, and Admix equipment can often allow you to reclaim out-of-spec product, instead of discarding it.
Admix offers a broad range of mixing technologies, along with years of mixing industry experience, to help create the best final products rapidly and cost-effectively.

Cereal Processing Equipment Q&A
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.
