Intermediate Food Grade Mixers
INTERMEDIATE FOOD GRADE MIXERS
There is a huge jump in price when you step into the "food grade" world using Stainless Steel as the metal of construction . . . but once over the sticker shock, the next thing to consider is the actual mixing motion.
Double Action Ribbons
We are choosing to make these units be using double-action ribbons that cause the coffee to flow left to right as well as right to left and then going round and round all happening at once.
Speed up the Flavoring Process Time
Results: mixing is the most rapid of any method of any mixer. With mixing beans for blending - your time of mixing would be only a few minutes, but on adding flavoring, the mixing time would be a little longer as the idea is allowing the beans to rub together with the flavoring and "work" that flavoring into the center of the bean and not just sitting on the outside.
The mixing motion actually makes the flavoring process go faster due to the amount of movement instead of the rotating poly drum method in the smaller sized applications.
Safety and Protection
Notice too, that we have hand protectors, belt guards, all clean and wash down activities in a total food-grade provision. The drive gears and chain parts are all wash-down proof. Even the welds and corners are all polished to that there is no place for any growth to happen. We are trying to take the mystery out of mixing and blending.
Ordering and Availablity
If you think of anything else that we have missed or is not clear - then pick up the phone and ask directly.
These units are normally in stock or have only a short delivery time due to a motor or utility change.
