A SINGLE SCREW EXTRUSION SYSTEM FOR CREATING EXPANDED SNACKS FROM CORN, RICE AND OTHER CEREAL INGREDIENTS.
Reading Bakery Systems offers a single screw, high-pressure extrusion system for producing expanded snacks from corn, rice and other cereal ingredients. The standard Reading Bakery Systems JA High Pressure Extruder produces corn curls and corn ball shapes. With additional process and formulation work at the RBS Science and Innovation Center, additional products can be developed for this system. Additional product opportunities are shown on the left.
Dry Ingredient Ribbon Blender
The Ribbon Blender creates a homogenous blend of dry ingredients for a variety of recipes that can be run through the extrusion system. It may also be used to evenly distribute oil or increase the moisture level of the dry ingredient blend to promote better processing and higher system throughput.
The High-Pressure Extruder mixes and cooks the raw ingredients to produce expanded shapes such as curls and balls. Ribbons, popcorn and other shapes are also possible with additional development at our Science & Innovation Center.
The Tumble Dryer reduces the moisture of the product to the proper, finished level, typically 1.5-4%. For many applications, this dryer is capable of handling product from two extruders at once.
The Slurry Applicator coats the dried product with an oil-based seasoning blend to add flavors to the final product such as cheese, butter, or a variety of other savory combinations.
