Completely redesigned to improve safety, efficiency and ease of cleaning, the Reading Pretzel Low Pressure (LP) Extruder creates a variety of structural and flat extruded shapes. This flexible alternative to conventional dough forming and sheeting systems offers new cost effective opportunities to the snack food industry. The LP Extruder enables consistent and accurate production of a wide array of products including hard pretzel shapes, sticks, braids, crackers, sushki and co-extruded products. Product changeover is as simple as exchanging one compression head and die for another one with a different shape. The simple assembly means product changeover takes just minutes. Extruders may be configured with multiple die sets in 13″ (325mm) and 15″ (375mm) wide increments.
