Fastfeed™ Powder Induction and Dispersion System

The Admix Fastfeed powder induction and dispersion system consistently delivers perfect product across any batch size. This integrated, skid-mounted system is revolutionizing batching by enabling processors to:

  • Cut batch times in half
  • Improve operator safety and ergonomics
  • Reduce energy consumption up to 70%
  • Eliminate dusting and reduce air entrainment

The Fastfeed system inducts, wets, and disperses countless ingredients, instantly eliminating fisheyes. 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. See a powder induction case study here.

In addition, our Fastfeed for meat and poultry processors provides inline simultaneous powder induction (up to 160 lbs/minute) and dispersion for any size batch.

How the Fastfeed improves operations

The Fastfeed's innovative features such as its specially designed powder suction pump and proven high-shear mixing technology deliver rapid, powder dispersion of dry ingredients into mix tanks. It also offers:
  • Elimination of powder bridging in the hopper
  • Continuous powder mixing and suction so as viscosity and solids levels increase, the system never plugs or fouls
  • Deagglomeration and hydration of even the toughest gums

In addition, the Fastfeed hopper introduces powders at the same rate every time so there are no batch-to-batch inconsistencies. If the finished product receives a thermal treatment in a plate heat exchanger, burn-on from unmixed ingredients is eliminated allowing longer process times and fewer CIP cycles.

Because powders are inducted into the liquid stream while the batch tank is being filled, batch times are often cut in half. And the Fastfeed disperses all powders directly into the blend tank, so there are no time-consuming pre-blends or “side batches” that require processors to fill, add powder, mix, transfer, and repeat.

Another feature, its regulating valves, can be automated for easy powder feed rate adjustments ensuring the proper concentration of dry materials are added quickly and effectively. Next, complete 100% dispersion of powders is guaranteed as the powder slurry mixture passes through the high speed, high shear DynaShear, where many applications are finished with one pass.

When full hydration of gums is required, the slurry can be recirculated through creating a perfect blend of fully functional ingredients in minutes, not hours, which is typical of a conventional batch tank. A single Fastfeed skid can also be used to feed multiple tanks for holding or suspending product prior to filling or packaging.

And with only 15 horsepower needed to drive the pump and the DynaShear, Fastfeed consumes up to 70% less energy than conventional tank mixers. Check out this powder induction case study to see how the Fastfeed helped one of our beverage processors improve their process.
