FMC FoodTech Unveils the ProMIX™ Automatic Batter Mixer
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: January 26, 2005
Atlanta, GA, January 26, 2005 -
FMC FoodTech, one of the world’s largest suppliers of industrial food processing systems, today introduced the new ProMIX™, the next generation of batter mixers.
The ProMIX offers processors with more capacity, easy maintenance and improved hygiene resulting in increased productivity and lower costs. The ProMIX provides the highest capacity of any batter mixer available on the market today, capable of mixing capacities up to 3,000 pounds (1,400 kilograms) of batter per hour. Additionally, the ProMIX also has variable batter level control for half-batch capabilities for end-of-day production runs, decreasing batter wastage.
"The ProMIX provides processors with an unmatched ability to control and monitor productivity," states Elizabeth Monasterio, Stein product line manager for FMC FoodTech. "Unquestionably, it is the most reliable and flexible batter mixer on the market today."
Because of the ProMIX’s advanced technology, it can automatically monitor viscosity, eliminate lumps and mix different types of batter. For processors that need consistent batter viscosity, the ProMIX includes a viscosity control which monitors and maintains batter thickness to +/- 1 percent from set point. There is also continuous batter recirculation to ensure product consistency and an electronic level probe to monitor batter level in the mixing tank. When batter or dry mix levels are low, a warning alarm alerts the operator.
"Due to its streamlined design, the new ProMIX is the most hygienic batter mixer available," says Monasterio. "The open frame design eliminates surface areas for batter build up, thereby reducing the possibility of product and bacteria harborage."
Another important feature of the simplified design is the removal of the chain, sprocket and belt drives. Additionally, all the bearings are sealed and the ProMIX uses a single stainless steel pump for both viscosity measurement and batter transfer, which results in a system with fewer components, making it easier to clean and inspect.
FMC FoodTech representatives will be at the International Poultry Exposition in Atlanta, January 26-28, 2005, at booth 609, to answer any questions about the ProMIX Automatic Batter Mixer. Please also visit www.fmcfoodtech.com for more information about the company and its product lines.
