OUR HIGHEST CAPACITY BAKE TYPE SINGLE SCREW SNACK EXTRUDER

Our highest capacity most powerful Bake Type Extruder to date is the Advantage 100. This extruder was designed from the ground up to help Snack Manufacturers get the most out of their production area. This means lower overhead costs including labor. The Advantage 100 has the capability of doing all of the products which our other models do but at higher capacities. Snack Manufacturers can expect to get from 350 to 400 kg/hr. This figure is based on a Corn Curl shape and high quality corn meal.

The Advantage 100 is well suited for Snack Producers where there are high populations in a given market. This extruder also does an excellent job replacing older smaller capacity snack extruders where maintenance can be a problem.
