Dry Food and Spice Blending

With world population growth continuing to rise and individuals wanting more diversity in the food they consume, food production is projected to continue growing for the foreseeable future. For this reason, it will become more vital for food companies to become leaner and reduce production times while at the same time being agile enough to keep up with the ever-changing customer demands.

Processall’s plow mixing technology gives food and spice-mixing manufacturers a leg up on the competition. Below are some benefits of moving toward plow-mixing technologies for food and spice manufacturers

  • Although it is a medium intensity mix, Processall mixers have been proven to be gentle enough to mix materials as fine as dried oat grains without damaging the oats themselves
  • Customers can observe up to a 600% increase in production by moving to a plow mixer from a ribbon blend.
  • The fluidized bed created by the mix creates greater uniformity in the mixes
  • Even with the high horsepower, Processall was able to verify a reduced energy consumption at a constant production rate vs. a ribbon blender
  • Being thermally insulated, the unit did not cause any temperature spikes in mixing the material
  • Ease of cleaning to be able to transition from one blend to another
  • Reduced Safety concerns over other mixing technologies
  • Ability to sterilize and pasteurize foods
