GENERAL INFORMATION.
The N50 mixer is designed to mix food products as detailed on the specification charts (Tables 2 and 3), standing on a standard height work top. The mixer is generally manufactured from die cast zinc alloy components and a steel rear cover all finished with a standard Hobart paint. The machine is rated to operate on the electrical supplies shown in Table 1. The mixer is fitted with a ‘no volt release’ safety feature to prevent automatic re-starting after a supply failure or disconnection from the mains. The bowl support and guard are interlocked so that when either are not in their correct operating positions, the mixer will not work. The standard mixer is delivered with a guard, bowl and ‘B’ beater.

INSTALLATION.
There are no specific requirements for the installation of the mixer. The mixer is supplied with a mains electricity plug. Ensure the following sections are read before operation.
UNPACKING.
Carefully unpack the machine. Do not use a sharp knife to cut into the box as damage to the machine may occur. Check for possible shipping damage. If the unit is found to be damaged, save the packaging material and contact your nearest Hobart sales office. Refer to Table 1 for mixer weights prior to lifting.
LOCATION.
Select a suitable flat level counter top that can support the weight of the mixer and bowl contents when full (see Table 1 for mixer weights). The mixer stands on rubber feet and does not need to be secured to the work surface. Ensure there is sufficient space around the mixer to enable safe operation of the bowl lift
handle, attachment hub and removal/replacement of the mixing bowl. Servicing may be more difficult because of reduced clearances and you should always check that equipment specifications permit the close proximity of other equipment. Refer to Figure 1 for the overall dimensions of the mixer.

MIXING CHART.
The following charts (Tables 2 and 3) show the maximum recommended capacities for the mixer. With high gluten flour reduce the dough batch size by 10%. Ensure the correct agitator is selected. Dough capacities are based on water at a temperature of 21°C and a 12% flour moisture content. If colder water is used, the mixing capacity will need to be reduced. Colder water temperatures result in a dough which is harder to mix. Ensure the correct speed is selected.
DO NOT EXCEED THE SPECIFIED MIX QUANTITY. Overloading the mixer can be detrimental to the quality of the finished product
and affect the life expectancy of the machine. Always refer to the mixing chart.

MIXER SPEED SETTINGS.
The selected mixer speeds will be determined by the mix type and quantity. As a general guide, the mixer speeds for some applications are as follows:
Speed 1 (slow): For heavy mixtures such as bread dough, heavy batters and potatoes. Speed 2 (medium): For light dough which must rise quickly, cake batters and some whipping
operations.
Speed 3 (fast): For light work such as whipping cream, beating eggs and mixing thin
batters.
MIXER AGITATORS.
The agitators available for the mixer are designed for the specific duties as follows: The ‘B’ Beater is a multi-purpose agitator for mashing potatoes and other cooked vegetables,
mixing cakes, batters, and icings. Use first speed for starting most operations, increasing to speed 2 for finishing where applicable.
The ‘D’ Whip is designed for maximum blending of air into light products. It can be used for whipping cream, beating egg whites, and mixing very light egg whites. The whip is commonly used on speeds two and three.
– 13 –
The ‘E’ Dough Hook is used for mixing bread, roll and pizza dough which require a folding and stretching action for optimum development. The dough hook should be used predominantly on speed 1.
FIGURE 3. AGITATOR TYPES.
CLEANING PROCEDURE (MIXER AND ATTACHMENT).
