Extrusion – Co-Extrusion
- Bubble-gum & Chewing-gum
- Chewy Candy
- Soft Chews…
- Up to 36 ropes/Extruder
- 5 to 6 000 kg/h according to the size of the machine
- 1 color/flavor, 2 or 3 colors and flavors (co-extrusion)
- Lacquered / painted steel
- Stainless steel
- Infeed by skip
- CIP systems…
Our extruders ensure :
- A stable, constant extrusion speed, even with fluctuations in voltage
- After setting, the Extruder produces continuously without operator intervention
- Easy cleaning
- Minimal maintenance and easy access
- Extrusion of a wide variety of formats
- Precise extrusion, for the optimal functioning of downstream equipment
- User-friendly controls of the Extrudeur via a touch screen (intuitive and multilingual)
- Constant temperature is maintained of the barrel and the compression head via a specific tempering system
- Manual infeed of the Extrudeur or PLC controlled
- Progressive investment possible; options can be added later without modification
A PROFORM Co-Extruder can make 2 color products simultaneously with single color products, for greater flexibility. For example, a Co-Extruder equipped with 4 outputs, being fed with red and white chewing gum can extrude :
- 4 two color ropes
- 2 red ropes and 2 white ropes
- 2 ropes of 2 colors and 1 white rope and 1 red rope
Also, the sections of these 4 ropes can all be different.
Ranges of Extruders :
Pre-Extruders GPE : iinstalled if necessary in order to well homogenize the product for an optimal infeed of the downstream Extruder.
A GPE can extrude up to 4 product ropes.
Different hopper sizes are available as well as infeed by skip
Extruders GE : forming the final shape of all viscous products, with or without filling.
Extruders CE : forming the final shape of all viscous products, in stainless steel execution
Extruders HE : for hard candy extrusion
Extruder FE : inter-meshing and self-cleaning extrusion screws. Due to this the mechanical warming of the mass is reduced.
Extruders BR : extruding filling of bubble gum or chewy candy into hard candy.
An Extruder BR coupled to a batch roller can make a double filling :
- 1st filling : chewy candy or chewing gum
- 2nd filling : semi-liquid (inside the 1st filling) to make lollipops for example…
Filling Options : powder, semi-liquid, bubble gum, chewy candy….
- Powder filling system (installed on the Extruder pressure head)
- Semi-Liquid filling system via a (Filling Pump).
