Used in developing extruded food products, the Clextral Evolum 25 (EV25) twin-screw extruder also enables seamless transfer from R&D to full production. The extruder features a color touch screen control center that provides real-time operating data and facilitates immediate process changes for efficient R&D testing. Suitable for use with value-added products such as functional ingredients, whole grain foods, textured proteins, modified starches, multigrain breakfast cereals and snacks, and filled products, the unit has a variable frequency drive, independent temperature control and a push-button hydraulic barrel opening for process evaluation, screw profile changes and cleanout.
