Soup & Salad Manufacturer Equipment Trial | Admix
At home, Admix kitchen appliances provide tons of shear, allowing you to quickly puree fruits and vegetables. It can be challenging to match this exact environment efficiently when applying it at an industrial level. Scaling up this type of process would require huge amounts of horsepower and energy.
Think about how you use a handheld immersion blender in your kitchen to make a soup. The blades of your blender provide tons of shear, making short work of chunky vegetables. You have to move the immersion blender around your saucepan to ensure all ingredients are mixed to the same consistency.
In a manufacturing environment, you don’t have the capability to move the mixer around in the product; you need to bring the product to the mixer. These are the instances where inline mixers are extremely useful. Pumping product into an inline shear device ensures that every drop of product is given the same amount of shear.
Recently, Admix was approached by a customer for this exact scenario. The customer was making salad dressings and soups in a tank with a high shear mixer. The mixer was providing a large amount of chopping action, but not nearly enough flow. The customer’s tank was 200 gallons and required a lot of time to break the product down into a smaller, more desirable product. This was due to the flow turnover in the tank. The finished product was also often inconsistent with some larger chunks.
Admix was able to provide a reliable solution! With the help of Admix’s trial program, the customer was able to prove out the concept in their own facility, using the Dynashear high shear emulsifier. With this, the customer significantly reduced batch times and were able to eliminate product quality inconsistencies. This customer used their existing in-tank high shear mixer to get the product to 75% of where it needed to be before sending it through the Admix 5HP Dynashear. This is an extremely easy solution to implement, one that is cost, time, and energy efficient!
Admix offers a trial program for these scenarios, specifically. This program allows customers to witness the equipment in action and see first-hand the improvements to their production.
