Hybrid frame mixing
Nov. 3, 2015
Shaffer, a Bundy Baking Solution, offers an extensive and innovative line of mixers and processing equipment, including the Hybrid Frame Mixer design.
This new mixer was engineered using a combination of a traditional enclosed-frame system and the leading-edge open-frame design. “Shaffer’s focus in designing the Hybrid Frame Mixer was reducing maintenance and sanitation,” said Terry Bartsch, vice-president of sales. The hybrid frame, like the open frame, uses a direct drive, which is not only more energy efficient than a single or double-end drive but also requires less routine maintenance, saving bakeries both time and money. The combination of the open frame around the bowl and water-tight enclosures for hydraulic and electrical components reduce sanitation costs.
In addition to the frame’s benefits, Shaffer’s proprietary bowl-seal design coupled with a BFM flour gate connection and dust vent provide effective seal technology.
The hybrid frame mixer works well in industrial bakeries that require a horizontal dough mixer. It can produce a wide range of baked goods, including breads, rolls, biscuits and crackers.
