Advanced extrusion technologies for superior fish feed characteristics


ANDRITZ'S FLEXTEX and ECS systems provide significant flexibility in the production of feed for all fish species. By continuously controlling the specific mechanical energy (SME) during operation, it is possible to achieve an optimum physical quality. At the same by using the ECS to control the density, two unique tools for controlling finish product characteristics are present. The advantages of the systems can be summarised into:

 •  Increase starch cook by 10-15%
 •  Decrease bulk density by 20-30%
 •  Increase bulk density by 0-5%
 •  No change of screw configuration which means reduced downtime
 •  Only two parameters needed for controlling starch cook, reduced and increased bulk density
