Mixing systems


In the world of food processing, mixing is one of the stages in most applications. From simple dissolution of powders to the homogenisation of ingredients, the process has a substantial impact on the finished product. This is where the choice of machinery designed to the specific needs of the manufacturer becomes strategic.

At Inox-Fer, we specialise in the design and manufacture of highly customised mixing systems.

How do Inox-Fer mixing systems work?

liquid ingredients are poured into the tank;

solid ingredients are poured into the hopper;

a centrifugal pump sucks the liquid from the tank, creating a Venturi effect under the hopper. the powders are sucked in and incorporated into the liquid;

the mixture is kept recirculating inside the tank to achieve the desired degree of homogeneity;

the mixture is transferred to the point of use via the centrifugal pump.

A customised system for every company

We do not have a catalogue of our mixing machines.

Each project is a prototype, designed and built to achieve the customer’s objectives. Here you can find a macro-categorisation of our offer, from the most complete solution to the simplest.

Impianti di miscelazione

ProMix line

The highest expression of Inox-Fer know-how in terms of customisation. These are complete mixing plants, which we design together with the customer according to their needs. They can be equipped with various tanks and hoppers and enhanced with accessories designed to meet all the production requirements of the customer.

Standard line

These are mixing systems consisting of a tank and a hopper. Ideal for companies taking their first steps towards industrialising their processes. They are simple plants that can also be customised to match the specific requirements of the application context.

TMV dissolvers

Designed for mixing highly viscous ingredients such as pectins, starches, thickeners, proteins and caseinates. The TMV dissolver micronises and disperses all ingredients, even the heaviest, reducing the viscosity of the end product.

It is a machine capable of handling large quantities of product, ideal for preparing syrups, thick brines and for reconstituting powdered milk.

N.B. the dissolver is not equipped with a tank. It is an ideal solution to complete a plant already equipped with a tank.

DR dissolvers

Designed for mixing low-viscosity ingredients such as salt and sugar in a liquid. Ideal for preparing brines and preserving liquids and for dissolving sugar in small quantities.

N.B. the dissolver is not equipped with a tank. It is an ideal solution to complete a plant already equipped with a tank.

Application examples

Each sector has its own specific requirements. Here are just a few fields of application in which our mixing systems have been used successfully.

Cured meats

For the production of:

  • brine for cooked ham;
  • marinade for chicken;
  • marinade for bacon and dried meat.


For production of preserving liquid for:

  • cucumbers, pickles, sweet corn, peas, artichokes;
  • cherries, plums, fruit salad;
  • tomato sauce;
  • letcho.


For the production of:

  • topping/glaze for ice cream, cakes and spoon desserts;
  • balsamic glazes.


For the production of:

  • salt solutions to be added to cheeses to preserve product qualities and ensure a longer shelf life;
  • saturated salt solutions for Taleggio and soft cheeses with rind.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. The product tends to foam, how can I avoid this phenomenon?

The ‘Venturi’ dissolution system could suck in air if there is no continuity when pouring the product into the hopper. Air, once entrained, leads to foam formation. Therefore, take great care to maintain a continuous flow of product into the hopper with the suction valve open.

If your product is compact, it will tend to bridge or stick to the walls. The most effective solution is to install a bridge-breaking reel or a flow of liquid – via a pipe – to clean the hopper.

The answer is simpler than you think: simply cut off the lower end of the bag before emptying it into the hopper. That is why our systems are equipped with bag holders

Provide recirculation from above and install a slow agitator.

It might be useful to heat the mixture with an exchanger on the recirculation.
