Extru-Tech Extruder Barrels are already designed for broad production capabilities with maximum efficiency and minimal metal-to-metal wear. However, to further eliminate pathogens in the extruder barrel, Extru-Tech Advanced Feature Extruders utilize a modified barrel profile and increased steam injection into the barrel. From the start, back in 1985, the overriding goal of the Extru-Tech engineering staff has been to design an extrusion cooking system that will yield high production levels of premium quality products. Whether it’s snack, pet, aquatic or animal feed production, Extru-Tech Extruders continue to be the most efficient single screw extrusion cooking systems available on the market. Except, now they’re even more hygienic.
Each extruder model can be equipped with multiple barrel length packages, each designed for the production of specific product types. Naturally, all extruder screws and liners continue to be constructed of high quality, wear-resistant stainless steel alloys that are subsequently polished, heattreated to required hardness specifications and then parallel ground to ensure proper fit between barrel components.
Different In Every Way
From unprecedented production capacities to exacting finished product quality, Extru-Tech Extrusion Cooking Systems have established the industry standards for performance and value. Extru-Tech’s Advanced Feature Extrusion systems were designed with two important criteria. The unit needed to be quick and easy to clean, and it needed to allow customers to control, reduce or eliminate contaminants in the system.
While Extru-Tech continues to be a leader in metallurgical advancement and the evolution of superior manufacturing processes, we recognize that there is also a growing interest in food safety.
***Extrusion rate turndown without surging.
The new pumping system insures consistent, high pressure regardless of the water supply pressure from the water main.
***Advance temperature control, utilizing water and steam at individual barrel segments.
