Dough temperature calculator..

    A continuous mixing system ensures every piece of dough gets the same mechanical treatment at all times. Therefore, the flow of product always has the same final dough temperature. To control dough temperature, Sobatech can regulate the process water by mixing it with water of three temperature sources (cold, ambient and warm). Also, the continuous mixer can be equipped with double jackets to heat or cool the product. As continuous mixers create a relatively large contact surface (large product-tooling ratio), this turns out to be a very effective way of controlling dough temperature. Lastly, for extreme dough temperature; Sobatech invented the so called ‘HOT & COOL’ technology which allows to cool the dough at the exact point of friction.  Check out our dough temperature calculator below to see what your final process temperatures will be.
