Watch on demand now to learn how to achieve precision in product flow using a forced screw feeder.
Extrusion is the heart of the pet food production process. It has a bigger impact on a manufacturer’s bottom line than any other production process step. While some extrusion technology improvements over the past 10 years have advanced the pet food industry, recent innovations are the key to protecting brand value and improving margins. This webinar will cover recent innovations and how the pet food extrusion process can be improved through developments in preconditioning, ingredient feeding, and modular construction. The featured speaker includes Michael Cheng, Ph.D., Global Business Development Manager, Pet and Aqua for the Bühler Group.
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN:
- Extrusion preconditioning and its effect on precision moisture control and thermal energy management.
- How to achieve precision in product flow using a forced screw feeder.
- Modular design and how it affects SME control, bulk density control, and pet food formulation changeovers.
This webinar is sponsored by Bühler Group and presented by Petfood Industry and WATT Global Media.
