Fluid bed processor

March 1, 2008




Intended for use in healthy, low-fat snack production, Aeroglide’s second generation AeroPulse fluid bed processor offers an alternative to hot oil frying for snack pellet expansion. The processor’s rapid heat transfer facilitates expansion of pellets through changes to their internal structure caused by a sudden increase in internal vapor pressure. The heat transfer completes the cooking process at the core of the pellet and provides final color, flavor and aroma characteristics.
