The extrusion unit is executed for installation in a wet pet food line, located over the belt of the steam tunnel. The unit will form stripes/ropes or a slab, ready for cooking in a continuous process.
The temperature of the emulsion has to be minimal +5°C for extrusion. The emulsion is pumped to the extruder by the mono pump of the hopper. The pump maintains a slight over pressure in the extruder head. By this over pressure the emulsion is supplied to the die. The die plate produces the required dimensions of ropes. The die plate of the extrusion unit is easily exchangeable by a fast exchange system.
The final consistency and form of the product is mainly the result of the specifications of the emulsion.
Selo designs and builds process- and packagingsystems for the food manufacturing, animalfeed, pharmaceutical and non-foodindustries. We offer solutions from A to Z: this makes it possible for us to take care of our projects from the design phase until the installation of the systems.
During this process we uphold the disciplines technology, automation, engineering, assembly, installation and after-sales ourselves.
