SBX Master Extruder

The SBX Master™ twin-screw extruder is used to produce a wide array of extruded snacks. They range from standard direct expanded corn balls, curls and chipsticks to complex multi-component premium products. Ingredients are texturized and cooked through a combination of heat, mechanical shear and moisture addition. Flavours and colours can be added easily. 

Its modular design enables the ideal barrel length for each application to be selected and barrels can be extended when production requirements change. Segmented agitators can be quickly configured for different process applications. High free-volume geometry gives greater throughput on low density materials, such as bran or fine-milled flours, while the high torque capacity enables an extended range of products to be made.

Low cost of ownership is achieved through flexibility, simple maintenance and advanced control. Recipe control, including automatic stop and start routines, minimizes waste while the touch screen HMI with full process visualization and alarm management makes it easy to monitor and control the process.

An open frame design provides the highest hygiene standards, and there are no covers so access is easy for all routine cleaning and maintenance tasks. Powder and liquid feeding systems are readily accessible to reduce cleaning and changeover time.
