Perfect Solutions for Food Processes

Coperion & Coperion K-Tron at IFT 2019, Booth no: 5312 Perfect Solutions for Food Processes
At this year’s IFT Annual Event and Food Expo, June 2-5, 2019, in New Orleans, Louisiana, Coperion and Coperion K-Tron will present the latest technology in feeding, conveying and extrusion.

Exhibits on display include a gravimetric twin screw feeder and video animation demonstrating a broad range of food process solutions. Also on display will be a working model of the screw elements of the Coperion ZSK Mv PLUS twin screw food extruder to illustrate the variety of extrusion process applications available.

According to Sharon Nowak, Business Development Manager Food and Pharmaceutical at Coperion K-Tron, “Today’s global food manufacturers are searching for partners in system and equipment supply who understand the importance of process efficiency and food safety.  For this reason, global food and pet food manufacturers of all sizes rely on the extensive application experience and design expertise offered by Coperion and Coperion K-Tron.”

ZSK Mv PLUS Twin Screw Food Extruder

Coperion’s twin screw extruder ZSK Mv PLUS provides ideal conditions for the extrusion of many types of food and pet food products. Closely intermeshing screws with tight self-wiping profile eliminates stagnant zones over the entire length of the process section. The effect of this is a constantly high conveying efficiency and perfect self-cleaning. Excellent product feed characteristics allow the ZSK Mv PLUS to achieve very high throughputs even with small machine sizes. Investment and operating costs drop significantly compared to conventional production methods or to processes using older extruder series.

Coperion K-Tron Twin Screw Compact Feeder: An Optimal Solution for Feeding Difficult Materials

The Coperion K-Tron KT20 twin screw feeder with interchangeable feeding tools is mounted on a fully enclosed platform scale for high accuracy feeding of difficult flowing ingredients including additives and flavors. All feeder parts in contact with the material being fed are stainless steel, and feeding equipment is easy to disassemble. A horizontal agitator gently moves the bulk material to the large throat and then into the screws. Specialty designs are available for clustering of feeders above extruders, blenders and other processes for optimal accessibility and ease of cleaning.
