    All the proof you need – Even though you know the benefits related to continuous mixing, Sobatech understands that organizing your production process in a new innovative way can be exciting. For that reason, Sobatech has its own testing facility where you find a proven way to apply that knowledge on your specific products.

    At Sobatech’s testing facility, a fully automated continuous dosing and continuous mixing system is available for product and production process testing. The testing facility is equipped with several solid and liquid dosing options (based on the Loss-in-Weight principle).

    Also, a large variety of continuous mixing tools are available. The dimensioning of the mixer tools are generally based on the desired product characteristics (viscosity/development & temperature). The testing facility includes twelve different continuous mixing tools. The contra-rotating tools range from extreme low shear to high shear mixing. Based on a manual pre-test of the product, the correct mixing tooling will be installed in the continuous test mixer.

    Besides that, the testing facility is equipped with discharge belts, a manual sheeter, several forming options and an industrial oven. The test will help you to identify the advantages that are meaningful to you ; such as greater consistency and/or reduced labor. Also, you will learn more about food safety and energy control.

    Sobatech can provide the theoretically calculated dough temperature and power needed for mixing the required dough based on the ingredient and final product temperatures. After the test, a test report (including pictures and videos of the test) will be written and provided by the Sobatech team.

    For more information about the testing, please contact Geneviève Lekner at genevieve.lekner@sobatech.com or +31621869812.

    We look forward to welcoming you at our continuous testing lab in Maastricht – The Netherlands.

    Continuous regards,
