Farmet produces screw extruders that cover a range of performance and application. These extruders can be further assembled into extrusion lines. Overall performance is then determined by the number and type of equipment used. Performance, as well as extrudability of particular materials can be significantly influenced either by mechanical pre-treatment, such as grinding or crushing, or water addition, or steam injection.
The word EXTRUSION encompasses the processes of kneading, heating at high pressure, and squeezing the material through a die with the aim of reaching mechanical and heat treatment of the material. This method is also known as HTST (High Temperature Short Time), because of the short exposure to hot temperatures.
In feed industry, extrusion technology is used for two main purposes:
Implementing extrusion has the following advantages:
