From each bulk bag, dry whole wheat flour and instant nonfat dry milk are pneumatically conveyed to a weighing hopper and then into the Munson HD-3-1/2-7 SSD Double Ribbon Blender.
Shortening is added to blender, equipped with a shortening extrusion system, by means of a progressive cavity pump.
Small amounts of proprietary ingredients are added to the blender by hand.
Overall view shows two bulk bag dischargers for whole wheat flour and nonfat dry milk, pneumatic conveying lines, weighing hopper, hand addition of ingredients, the ribbon blender, and final mix in the bulk bag below blender.
Designed for thorough mixing, easy cleaning: Tight tolerances between ribbon blades and blender trough minimize residual material remaining in the vessel after discharge. Agitator length-to-width ratio of 2-to-1 yields uniform blends in minimum cycle times. A spray line is included for liquid additions.
Packages of Low Fat Bakery Mix, among other blended products sold under the Mountain Maid™ trademark, are distributed to food banks, domestic feeding programs, and other nonprofit organizations.
Nonfat dry milk (L), whole wheat flour (R), shortening and proprietary ingredients comprise the final Non Fat Bakery Mix (C).
