[ Coperion GmbH ]

Stuttgart, December 2020 – Research and development company Foodwest Ltd., located in Seinäjoki, Finland, has expanded its food development center with a ZSK 27 Food Extruder in Hybrid Design. Thanks to the Coperion extrusion system’s modular construction, Texturized Vegetable Protein (TVP), High Moisture Meat Analogues (HMMA), and numerous other extrudates such as snacks and cereals can be manufactured on the same machine. The extruder is particularly well suited for research and development with throughputs of up to 80 kg/h, and thanks to constant process parameters within the entire ZSK extruder series, ensures reliable scale up to higher throughput ranges. Along with the extruder, the Coperion system encompasses a highly accurate Coperion K-Tron K-ML-D5-KT20 gravimetric twin screw feeder for dry powders, a ZGF Centric Food Pelletizer from Coperion Pelletizing Technology, and a cooling nozzle.
