A bakery needs the right equipment to maintain efficiency without sacrificing quality. In the baking industry, the use of industrial mixers make mass production easier, cheaper, and more consistent. If you have a bakery or are planning to open one, here are the different types of mixers that should help increase efficiency:
A homogenizer is used to create a homogeneous substance from several heterogeneous liquid ingredients. These ingredients are broken down via strong pressure and radical force using shearing blades. In the food industry, particularly the baking business, a homogenizer can be used to create sauces, ganaches, and creams.
Emulsifiers are used to combine two immiscible liquids, such as oil and water, and blending thick and glutinous ingredients. A bakery needs an emulsifier to blend milk, cream, gel, and immiscible ingredients to create a smooth and homogeneous mixture.
Almost all bakeries have an industrial stand mixer in their production line. A stand mixer can be used for a variety of functions, like whipping eggs, churning cream, mixing dough, and shredding meats or vegetables.
A small bakery may still have a handheld mixture in their employ, but medium to large-scale productions may find handheld mixers impractical to use. Nevertheless, handheld mixers can perform various baking techniques, such as whipping, mixing, beating, and mixing all sorts of ingredients.
Horizontal Bakery Mixers
This type of mixer is used to mix dough in medium to large-scale bakeries. There are three main types. The three roller bar mixer is used to develop gluten in the dough, the single sigma mixer is used for cookies and biscuits, while the double sigma mixer is meant for soft products like pretzels and muffins.
A planetary mixer has a lot of different attachments, making it a versatile tool for many baking techniques. With a planetary mixer, you can whip, mix, blend, and stir all sorts of dough mixtures.
In order to run a successful bakery, you must know what kind of equipment would increase production efficiency. And with these industrial mixers, you can improve your bakery’s production and even broaden your product selection.
