Ajax’s continuous mixer helps snack maker diversify

Solids handling equipment specialist, Ajax Equipment, has supplied a leading UK cereal bar and snack manufacturer with a stainless steel twin-screw mixer. The mixer has been supplied with both paddle augers and ribbon augers to provide a variety of mixing options.

Ajax’s twin mixer features quick release couplings making it easy to switch between auger types as well as removing the augers for cleaning. However, in this case it is possible to clean the augers in situ by filling the machine with water. The continuous mixer also features heated screw shafts and casing. Heating the machine ensures the condition of the ingredients is maintained, allowing materials to be sufficiently mixed to consistently produce the high-quality product desired.

“Continuous mixers are ideal for producing a variety of food products including cereal bars and chocolate,” says Eddie McGee, managing director, Ajax Equipment. “Ajax’s mixers provide the right balance between work input and maintaining the condition of ingredients such as puffed rice and oats when mixing with syrups and pastes.”
