Blending your beverages is one of the most important steps in your process. Ensuring your beverages are properly blended is critical to flavor and texture. Fortunately, today’s blending techniques, like inline blending, make it even easier to blend your beverages. Inline blending offers several advantages over traditional blending.
Inline blending simplifies your process by allowing you to purchase ingredients in concentrated bulk form. This not only saves you money but reduces your workload, since you’ll need to order ingredients less frequently.
Inline blending also makes life easier because it has the ability to dilute those concentrated ingredients properly, as it is adding these to the mixture. The blending equipment perfectly dilutes each concentrate as it is added to the mix, ensuring a perfect proportion, just as easily as it ensures a perfect blend.
When you add inline blending equipment to your processing line, you add a new level of automation to your process that requires less manual intervention and ensures flavor consistency at the same time.
This new equipment can save you money on ingredients, too. It is estimated that buying concentrated ingredients in bulk may save you as much as 30% in ingredient cost. You’ll also save in shipping costs, as you’ll order much less frequently.
This new equipment might be just what your company needs to take beverage processing to the next level of automation and efficiency. You may be able to easily double the amount of product you produce. When you can save money on ingredients and save money on human resources, automation pays for itself very quickly. In addition, you have the added benefit of knowing that each batch of your beverage is consistent.
