Amandus Kahl highlights its extruder products
In its latest update, Amandus Kahl highlights its KAHL Extruder OEE and KAHL Extruder OEE 8.
KAHL Extruder OEE
At the start of the production, the KAHL extruder OEE does not require an increased water addition and can be started with an "open" die. It is less sensitive and the quantity of wasted product is reduced considerably compared to traditional extruders.
Grinding degree of the raw material, conditioning, selection of additives, mechanical energy input, (e.g. the starch gelatinization and thus the product quality can be influenced by means of the energy input), die geometry (product design).
The KAHL Extruder OEE 8 for Laboratory Use or for Small-Scale Productions
In the pilot plant of Amandus Kahl a proven technology is available to clients and prospective buyers for tests with their own products
Extruder OEE 8 abt. 200 kg/h 11 kW
Extruder OEE 15.2* 1 - 1.5 t/h 55 - 75 kW
Extruder OEE 23.3 2 - 4 t/h 132 - 315 kW
Extruder OEE 30.2 5 - 8 t/h 250 - 315 kW
KAHL Fish Feed Plants
The KAHL fish feed plant is equipped with the latest process technology, the core of which is the extrusion system with the Kahl Extruder OEE and the process control system ESEP.
Sinking, slowly sinking and floating products in various shapes and sizes can be produced.
Particularly in the area of conditioning and extrusion, the Kahl process technology allows them to react to the demands of the local raw materials.
Shaping and adjustment of the pellet density are realised in the extruder type OEE. This machine is equipped with the hydraulically movable die which is typical for the Kahl extruder. It allows an extruder start with open die which makes the critical process start and stop very easy and waste saving. Due to the automatic opening of the die, a die change can be completed within 120 sec. This provides additional convenience; in particular since fish feed production typically requires a variety of different pellet diameters. At the same time a high level of plant availability with a low downtime results from the rapid die change.
In light of continuous quality monitoring of the finished product, a new software system for batch traceability is installed. It allows the storage of more than 1,000 formulae and retracing of the production data. This results in a kind of "transparent" production.
