Home » Blog » Benefits of High Shear Mixers in the Food Industry

Across all industries, time is money. Especially true of the food industry where time is often expended on various aspects throughout the production line. There are numerous opportunities along the processing line where savings can be achieved by reducing the time it takes to process the product from harvesting of the goods through to product on the store shelves of your client.

For food manufacturers, the aim is to consistently and efficiently achieve a high-quality product in texture, flavour as well as aromas.

Faster Processing, More Output, Increased Profits

Food that requires significant processing and agitation in order to achieve quality, consistent results requires the best mixing solution to provide efficiency in production. Investing in a high-shear mixing system allows for maximum efficiency of processing, designed and manufactured to meet the demands of food production. Whether your process involves mixing, homogenizing, emulsifying or dispersing, Mixquip High Shear agitators are able to achieve numerous mixing actions within the one mixing system. Food safety is also a paramount feature as well as hygienic production. The equipment you choose for processing your food products should be fast, efficient and capable of performing the necessary tasks with CIP design.

Our high-shear product lines include inline emulsifier mixers, high-shear batch emulsifiers, in-tank mixers as well as powder-to-liquid mixers.
