iMIX N’ Match

Bunn is introducing their new iMIX hot powdered beverage dispensers. The dispensers are available in four and five flavor models (iMIX-4 and iMIX-5) with a three-flavor model available later this year (iMIX-3).

The hoppers have a spring-loaded all metal auger drive system for easy loading and dependability. The nine pound hoppers also provide more cups of hot beverages between refills.

A low product indicator, which is a new feature, sounds an audible alert to let workers know when product needs to be refilled. A low product message also appears on the dispenser’s alphanumeric display, which can communicate advertising messages, machine status and technical support contract information in English and Spanish.

A seven-gallon hot water tank assures the dispensers will meet peak demand and the 7.25” cup clearance will accommodate popular cup sizes. The iMIX is engineered to provide control in easily selecting a flavor profile for the drink as well as holding the product mixing consistent with every drink.

The auger motors have RPM feedback monitoring to assure consistent flavors and profits by controlling product dosing. Push-and-hold and portion-control models are available.
