TWIN SCREW EXTRUDER, WENGER 52
The Thermal Twin process offers new opportunities in extruded foods. For example, products that are high in corn or rice content can be processed without the stickiness previously encountered in other extruder designs. Starches may be fully cooked without damage to functional and organoleptic properties.
In pet food applications, the ability to use high levels of thermal energy also provides the potential to produce specialty foods and treats with up to 90 percent fresh meat (as a percent of the dry recipe) and up to 40 percent moisture without changing the extruder configuration.
