The Dressings, Mayonnaise & Sauces Industry

Dressings & Sauces Industry

The salad dressing, mayonnaise, and sauce market has grown and changed drastically in recent years, with ethnic, organic, reduced-calorie, and international varieties becoming consumer favorites with major pressure from the food service sectors as well as millennials to go "clean label." New and challenging ingredients continue to be pain points for processors who demand the best commercial mixing equipment.

Besides formula changes to meet consumer demand, egg supply issues (such as that caused by the Avian flu in 2015) can drive reformulations geared at reducing costs and eliminate risk factors in source. From oil-in-water emulsions to uniformly distributing particulate to milling delicate emulsions, Admix offers mixing, milling and powder induction equipment that creatively solves these challenges along with excellent technical support.

Featured Products

Admix is a proud member of the Association of Dressing & Sauces and has designed products dedicated to salad dressing and mayonnaise processing. 

The Admix MayoMill is built off the proven Boston Shearmill platform, so the need to disassemble the unit for cleaning and seal failures caused by high pressure are both eliminated. The MayoMill is CIPable and meets 3-A sanitary standard #36-01.

The Rotosolver high shear mixer is our flagship product with thousands of installations at food and beverage processing plants around the world.

If your production line requires 100% wetting out of powders, and an easy-to-clean design that meets 3-A sanitary requirements, the Rotosolver is the solution. The Rotosolver design includes two additional shear zones providing higher overall shear rates, improved dispersion, and reduced energy consumption for volumes up to 10,000 gallons.

The Rotosolver outperforms competitors in key performance areas. For various applications, it has delivered up to:

  • 50% less energy consumption
  • 600% higher flow rates
  • 20% higher tip speeds
  • 6 times more throughput than conventional mixers

The Fastfeed powder induction and dispersion system inducts, wets, and disperses ingredients instantly eliminating agglomerates. Proteins, gums, starches, vitamins, fiber, sweeteners, stabilizers, emulsifiers, flavors, and colors are dispersed at rates up to 450 pounds per minute in a single pass. It consumes up to 70% less energy than conventional tank mixers and batch-to-batch inconsistencies are eliminated as powders are introduced at the same rate every time. Batch times and air entrainment are also reduced because powders. Dust from dumping powders into open top tanks is also eliminated.Operator safety is also enhanced as powders are added from the safety of floor level.  See how the Fastfeed can improve your product quality in half the time with less energy.

The DynaShear inline high speed emulsifier disperses gums, stabilizers, proteins and sweeteners in a single pass delivering batch times as low as 3-5 minutes and less air entrainment. With flow rates up to 175 GPM, the 3-A compliant DynaShear delivers smooth product every time with no fisheyes or agglomerates. The two-stage rotor/stator action allows processors to run longer and CIP less frequently. When installed upstream of inline strainers or HTST balance tanks, the DynaShear improves your process, preventing clogged strainers and extending the life of pumps, valves, and seals. Lower your maintenance costs and total cost of ownership today!
