Abstract

There is still need for improvement on design of dough mixers despite the availability of a number of them in the market. It is required that the constituents be mixed efficiently at a shorter time. The cost of the machine should also be affordable. A dough mixer has been designed for this purpose. Whilst the mixing basin rotates in anti-clockwise direction, the stirrer (suspended on the mixing basin) rotates in clockwise direction. Detailed design of the machine was done. Performance test result shows that proper dough mixing is achieved in a comparatively shorter time and the cost is quite affordable with 86 per cent process efficiency.
