550 Vertical Spindle Dough Mixer

  • Benefits

    The 550 is a multi-purpose vertical spindle batch mixer with removable tubs. It is suitable for all types of biscuit dough, especially where a gentle mixing action is required.

    Wheeled mixing tubs are charged with ingredients, either by hand or from a semi-automatic tub filling system. The tubs are loaded into the mixer and raised up to the twin vertical spindle blades for thorough mixing. After mixing, the tub is lowered and wheeled away to either a tub tilt or a fermentation room.

    • Handles a full range of hard and soft biscuit doughs
    • Minimal changeover time between different dough types
    • Suited to sponge and dough type processes where two mixings and a fermentation period are required
