Mixer

For mix and to moisturize the raw materials, there are two different models: the vertical grits mixer and the horizontal ribbon mixer. Most sold and easiest to use is the vertical grits mixer. Raw materials is feed from floor level and a screw bring the raw materials into the mixer. Water is added and the mix is prepared. Together with the screw feeder (transport to extruder) and extruder hopper it forms one big buffer of raw materials.

Roasting: rotating drum dryer

For Single Screw Extruder lines we advise to use drum dryer, very user friendly. Electric heater elements are placed in a hood inside the drum and drying results are perfect. The heat quantity can be controlled as well as rotation speed and the slope of the drum.

 

 

Flavouring equipment (slurry and dry dosing)

Snacks need a coating to become attractive, this is done in a coating drum immediately after drying. The coating drum comes in various sizes and has on the inside a self-cleaning profile. To ensure uniform residence time, strips are mounted in the drum. The rotation speed of drum are variable.
