 Food Ingredient FAQs

How do we blend two miscible liquids in a continuous process with minimal maintenance? Can we get consistent color dispersion for our concentrate?

Admix offers its Admixer line of static blenders for continuous processing with no moving parts.

  • Side stream injectors, heat transfer and temperature control with jackets
  • Easily cleaned removable elements and specially polished finishes available
  • Meets 3-A TPV Standards #35-04
What will give us good general blending in our tank? How can we maintain a suspension in our vessel?

The Rotomixx line offers fixed or portable tank agitation in all stainless steel construction. It can provide simple blending for miscible fluids or solids incorporation and dispersion, or maintain a suspension.

Meets 3-A TPV Standards #73-01

We're trying to concentrate the solids level in a batch to reduce mixing times and control costs. The solids are hard-to-wet and create tough fisheyes that clog our filters. Help!

The Rotosolver combines excellent fluid motion with efficient pumping blades and high shear mixing to break down fisheyes and agglomerates. Rotosolver is clean-in-place and meets 3-A sanitary standard #73-01

We're creating a flavor emulsion that requires good stability. Can we do this in a single mixing step?

The Fastfeed system provides inline, simultaneous powder induction and dispersion from the safety of floor level. Produces continuous emulsions <1.0 micron on a single pass at powder feed rates >150#/min.

Our materials are expensive, and testing large volumes can really add up. How do we test new recipes without a lot of waste?

The BenchMix programmable high shear lab mixer can be configured with Rotomixx, Rotosolver and Rotostat heads for the greatest flexibility and accurate scale-up to full production.

We are so confident in our scale-up methods that we provide a process performance guarantee! Contact us for details.

How can we improve the efficiency of our current production? We run multiple passes through a high pressure homogenizer, and must prefilter the product.

For in-line continuous processing, the DynaShear and Boston Shearmill high shear mixers and wet mills provide tight emulsions. Typical droplet size with the DynaShear is 2-3 microns and as fine as 0.5 microns with the Boston Shearmill. Break down tough fisheyes in a single pass, create fruit fillings with consistent and desirable particle sizes without any mechanical modifications. Designed to run 24/7!

Both DynaShear and Boston Shearmill meet 3-A TPV Standards #36-01

How can we blend powders into liquids without dusting and foaming?

Admix offers the VacuShear system to induct powders or liquids under vacuum, provide high shear mixing for immediate powder dispersion, and vacuum deaeration for the best finished product. Where air entrainment is not a concern, the Admix powder induction line-up of Optifeed, PIC and Fastfeed provide inline, continuous powder induction and disperion at powder feed rates in excess of 150#/min on a single pass.
