NMBU (Norwegian University of Life Sciences)
Vitenparken Building
├ůs
Australia
Contact: Gordon Young

This three-day course covers the principles of extrusion and the design of extrusion processes for pet foods, as well as how the formulation interacts with the extrusion process. Principles learned will be demonstrated using the extruder in the FôrTek pilot plant. The program provides a good background in general extrusion technology, but is specifically directed at manufacture of extruded pet foods. The course is relevant to both single and twin screw extrusion technology.

The course will cover topics from the basics of extruders and their configuration, through what is happening chemically and physically inside the extruder barrel, to an understanding of extruder dies and extruder instability.
