Thanks for your comments, Ignacio. You raise some important points. While there are several designs of preconditioners available, the predominant idea with those designs is to have maximum contact of the dry raw materials with that of water and steam to quickly create a precooked material.As far as wetting of the flour to the walls of preconditioner is concerned, it's probably due to the differenc ...

Important discusion about the preconditioner design results in a very important conclusions for the operation. As preconditioner is an special " mixer" it will be important to know opinions on what is the most important in the design. Parameters like, level of operation, time of retention range, one or two axes, sens of rotation of two axes, how to inyect the water and the steam, position of beate ...

Hello Dr. Mavromichalis,Great piece of information about dry extruded corn and full fat soy soy as feed ingredient for young broilers, Could you let me know about the particle size of the extruded full fat soy used in the study.My limited experience has been that different types of soy produce different particle sizes of extruded full fat soybean meal under the same conditions of dry extrusion. As ...

What Is Preconditioning? Preconditioning means to condition or prepare a material before it is processed further. In the context of extrusion processes, preconditioning occurs just prior to extrusion inside a piece of equipment called a preconditioner. The preconditioned raw material exits the preconditioner and moves into the extruder for further processing down the line. The dry raw ma ...

Overview – What Is Extrusion? The word extrusion means shaping a material or a blend of materials that can be plasticized (able to be melted and become fluid-like), and is pumpable by forcing through a restricted opening or die. The versatility of the process is evident in its ability to produce different types of foods. The power of the process can be further apprecia ...
