Extrusion molding that cooks under precisetemperature control
Raw materials crushed to a fine particle size are transferred to an extruder. Here, the raw materials are molded into kibbles. The inside of the extruder remains very hot. It is important that the temperature is properly controlled so that the product is sufficiently cooked and the conditions of food safety and quality are satisfied.
Therefore, it is required that the operator conducts constant monitoring to make sure that all parameters meet the prescribed standards. In addition, the sample of the kibbles will be collected at regular intervals to confirm and record physical and chemical aspects. Here, a well-trained operator checks the color, shape, size, density, moisture, protein, and fat content of the kibble using specialized equipment.
