In the food industry, mixers are often one of the most important and most frequently used pieces of equipment in the entire operation. Of course, working in the food industry comes with its own unique set of requirements, meaning that you will need to take great care when choosing a mixer. In this article, we’ll take a look at the various reasons why an overhead lab mixer is often the best choice for food processing operations.
No Risk of Contamination
Cleanliness standards in the food industry are enormously high, and rightfully so. However, this means that you cannot use any mixer that poses any contamination risk such as leaking oil or exposed grease. With a lab mixer, contamination is never a concern. These mixers were designed for mixing solutions in the lab where even the slightest bit of contamination could throw off the entire result. This means that everything from the clamps at the top to the lab mixer blades at the bottom on a lab mixer are 100% sanitary and sealed off so that no contaminating material is able to leak out.
At Arrow Engineering Mixing Products, our lab mixers are designed to stand up to the harshest of conditions and perform optimally throughout the duration of their life-cycle. If you are searching for a quality mixer that will stand up to the rigors of food processing, you can’t go wrong with a lab mixer from Arrow Engineering Mixing Products.
Easy to Attain
If you limit yourself to mixers that are designed specifically for food processing, you might not have a lot of options left. By considering lab mixers as well, though, you’ll have a lot more mixers to choose from. This enables you to find a mixer that is the right specifications for your application and the right price for your budget without having to search too hard.
