1. REDUCE PEOPLE — because a continuous processing operation takes less people. There is a significant reduction on the number of people involved in the mixing process.

  2. REDUCE CYCLE TIME — When you look at "ALL" the steps and operations that are involved in a certain process, a continuous processing system can do all those things in a minute, and shorten the total cycle time.

  3. INCREASE SAFETY — because the continuous processing system is totally enclosed you can operate around it without the safety hazards of a batch processing unit that requires opening and closing to add ingredients, check temperatures, and discharge the product into the next process step.

  4. REDUCE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT — because of the totally enclosed design, it contains all the dust, vapors, and nasty things that could become airborne with a batch processing system that can contaminate a work area.

  5. REDUCE THE NUMBER OF PIECES OF EQUIPMENT — when you can combine processes, you then eliminate equipment, making the total system less complicated and expensive.

  6. REDUCE THE NUMBER OF PROCESS STEPS — Because of the variables and flexibility of the Continuous Processor, continuous can combine processes into one unit. Examples of this are mixing, cooking, crystallizing, and reacting.

  7. REDUCE FLOOR SPACE — because the footprint of continuous processing is many times smaller than the conventional batch processing approach. Consider the raw material storage, the take away equipment and the storage of semi-finished product waiting for the next step.

  8. REDUCE WIP — because when you have a continuous processing system you can become a just in time facility instead of a storage facility.

  9. REDUCE SCRAP — because with a continuous system such as the Continuous Processor, if there is a problem downstream the feeders and pumps can shut off automatically and the small amount of product in the mixing barrels can be diverted to a scrap line. Since the Continuous Processor is only working on a small quantity at a time the volume of scrap is greatly reduced.

  10. INCREASE PRODUCT QUALITY & CONSISTENCY — because by using loss in weight feeders and pumps, the consistency and quality of the finished product is always the same. No more batch to batch variations with manual feeding of ingredients.
