Customised solution for potato products

04 February 2019

A potato processor has worked with its mixer supplier to ensure it gained a mixing solution that met its specific hygiene and product handling requirements. 

Agristo is a european producer of pre-fried and frozen potato products. It recently purchased two continuous mixers from Ajax Mixers which feature an enhanced mirror polish finish. The machines will be used to mix grated potato with various additives and flavourings to produce a range of potato products.
 
The 4m long twin screw mixers include profiled covers as part of its design to ensure that there are no areas of the machines that are awkward to clean. The hygienic, crack and crevice free finish of the mixer casing ensures that these continuous mixers meet strict hygiene standards. The mixers also feature a paddle screw geometry which ensures gentle, yet efficient mixing with minimal damage to ingredients.
 
“Our continuous mixers work well, performing their job perfectly,” said Dieter Raes, technical director at Agristo. The company specified Ajax products following previous successful projects.
 
Initially, Agristo used one of Ajax’s hire machines to test various product combinations and handling requirements. The resulting feedback allowed it to scale up the mixer’s design, producing a stainless steel continuous twin paddle mixer with a specially profiled casing for the most effective operation. The latest two mixers continue this progression; using Agristo’s experience with the existing machine and Ajax’s handling expertise to enhance mixing performance.
