Marel Semi-automatic batter mixer for high capacity, lump-free mixing

Precise batter mixing starts with Marel’s Active Mixer. This semi-automatic mixer takes powder and water and turns it into a homogeneous mixture, which can be tempura or a lower viscosity batter. Its adjustable design ensures that the right amount of force is used to make a lump-free batter within 2 minutes.

  • Worry-free process
  • Consistent batter
  • High capacity
  • Labor-saving mixing process
Recipe management ensures a consistent batter

The Active Mixer is fitted with a recipe management menu that saves recipes centrally for a simple and repeatable process. When empty, the mixer automatically fills with the set amount of water. On the screen, the operator can see which actions are required from him, such as the amount of powder he needs to add.

The Active Mixer gives real-time feedback on the batter’s viscosity and if this does not match the recipe settings, a warning light will give a signal. This guarantees a very repeatable and reproducible, worry-free process.

The semi-automatic process minimizes labor

When the mix is ready, a pump transfers it to the connected batter or tempura applicator. The mixer maintains the desired level of batter or tempura in the applicator using an adjustable level sensor. The mixer agitates the mix intermittently between two mixing cycles to ensure homogeneity.

When the mixer is empty, the mixer automatically fills with water and signals the operator to add powder. This significantly reduces the required amount of labor in the mixing process.

Software: Production insight

By controlling and monitoring the recipes and production, Innova Food Processing Software ensures that the end product aligns with the customers’ orders. The supplied real-time data for performance monitoring ensures better food quality and food safety.

Innova’s full traceability program provides an overview of the raw materials' journey through the processing plant. As a part of this, the traceability engine records every process step in the convenience line. Together with the Recipe Manager tool, it’s easy to track systematically what has been made, when, where, and by whom.
