  • Water jacketed extrusion barrel with electronic temperature control, which allows for an accurate and even temperature of the whole extrusion area.

  • Inverter controlled variable speed drive for the extrusion screws.

Center-filling

The CSTR extruders are ideally suited for the production of center-filled products. The high pressure stability of the screws provides a constant an even flow of the filling mass (bubble-gum, chewy candy, marzipan, etc). Also, additional fiilling devices can be attached to the extruding head for the production of semi-liquid filled products or flakes.

Powder and granulates

Gravimetric filling device for fillings in powder or granulate form. 

Semi-liquids

Filling device for viscous fillings such as syrup, chocolate, jam, gelatin and other similar products.

Seeds and flakes

Transportation screw system for such fillings as seeds (chia, sesame), inclusions of nuts, cereal flakes, etc.

Multi-Extrusion with different colours

Two or more CSTR extruders can be easily combined to produce co-extruded products. A wide range of extruding heads and nozzles are available, thus allowing for a great variety of different combinations of colors, flavours and shapes. Besides, co-extruded products can be also  center-filled.
