Mixing of dry and liquid ingredients is often a key step in many food manufacturing processes. It greatly influences product quality and production costs in food production. If not done properly, mixing negatively affect your downstream processing, increases costs, shortens shelf-life and compromises food safety and quality.

CSIRO has obtained the world’s latest high shear mixer from Tetra Pak which combines both a next generation mixer for high viscosity materials with a dedicated deaeration unit. The unit 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.

Come and participate in this interactive and hands-on demonstration and showcasing of this next generation mixing unit at the CSIRO Food Innovation Centre in Werribee.
