Fried Snack Extruder

A flexible machine for the production of fried snacks

The Reading Pretzel Fried Snack Extruder creates fried snacks including potato rings, potato sticks and ethnic noodles. The extruded product is delivered to the fryer by a belted conveyor or by incorporating an optional oil “free float” conveying section. The Extruder with pre-feed rollers manages dough flow for optimum consistency from the time it enters the infeed hopper through being cut off at the die face by the high-speed bandcutter.
