Sobatech focuses on three parts of the entire food production chain, and therefore became a worldwide leader in designing, manufacturing and commissioning equipment for: (1) the continuous dosing of raw materials, (2) the continuous mixing and kneading and (3) the continuous bulk fermenting of (food) products. The continuous production process starts at the weighing of the liquid and solid ingredients (continuous feeding of ingredients).  After that, the solid ingredients are injected by the liquid ingredients in a pre-defined order (phase 1 mixing: the homogenizer). Thereafter, (mechanical) energy is applied to the ingredients in order to equally distribute them over the complete mass (phase 2 mixing: continuous kneading).  Finally, Sobatech’s continuous bulk fermenter allows the dough to rest and develop taste, aroma and consistency  (continuous bulk fermentating).
