G.R. Wright & Sons Case Study – RT2000 mixer for Bread and cake mixes
For four generations, millers G. R. Wright and Sons have manufactured products made from the finest ingredients. Bread and cake mixes are produced in a large, modern food-factory in Greater London, using leading edge, state-of-the-art production technology, complementing other processes such as warehousing and packaging.
Winkworth Mixers have an established relationship with G. R. Wright & Sons, having supplied them with one RT2000 mixer in 2004 and then a further two RT2000 mixers in 2012 to meet increased capacity demands.
Alan Cave, Production Director at G. R. Wright & Sons, commented, “Our experiences of using Winkworth Machinery had the hallmarks of excellent engineering quality, delivered in a timely manner and very good service throughout, and we naturally approached them when we expanded.”
Grant Jamieson, Managing Director of Winkworth Machinery, said “RT mixers are designed for high speed mixing, considerably reducing process cycle times. Versatility and flexibility are key qualities of this machine, which enabled Winkworth to provide a precise machine specification to meet their needs”.
In this case, the RT2000s had certain special features, such as the refiners, that resulted in a faster mixing time, increasing efficiency and throughput and the inlets were engineered to meet the client requirements.
Prior to the first mixer being purchased, Winkworth and G. R. Wright & Sons carried out mixing trials in the dedicated Mixing Test Centre, to show the benefits of the RT mixer over G. R. Wright & Sons’ existing mixer.
Situated in the new factory, the machines mix one tonne batches of flour with fats and oils as part of the production process.
With its stainless steel hygienic design, fully welded construction and plough blade agitator, Winkworth Machinery’s RT Industrial mixer (Plough Share mixer) is ideal for mixing of powders, granules, pastes, slurriesand doughs.
RT mixers considerably reduce process cycle times and with a working volume of 14 litre to 4,200 litre, the RT mixers are used in wide range of industries and applications.
