Mixing, a common operation in food processing, aims to efficiently achieve a smooth, homogenous product with consistent quality. Food processors, and consumers, insist on a perfect product every time. To achieve this, food processors must stay in complete control of every aspect of their production from beginning to end. The right mixing solution maximises product quality, production costs and operational efficiency.

CSIRO has obtained the New Generation High Shear Mixer from Tetra Pak, revolutionising the mixing process for huge potential improvements in cost savings and product quality. The innovative new design moves the mixing head and high viscosity pumping device outside of the traditional mixing tank – and it replaces the mixing tank with a dedicated deaeration unit. This mixing technology provides greatest possible flexibility and control over mixing processes which enables superior emulsification, powder dissolving and deaeration performance of high viscous products in a continuous or recirculation setup.

We invite you to an interactive and hands-on demonstration of this New Generation High Shear Mixer at the CSIRO Food Innovation Centre in Werribee.
