Conditioning to improve extrusion/pelleting


Conditioning to improve extrusion/pelleting

Conditioning holds your dry raw material in a warm, moist environment before it is discharged into your extruder or pellet mill. The wetting, heating and mixing allows moisture penetration and eliminates the dry core, ensuring you get a better product with less waste. 

This step can also be used as a precooker, where gelatinization of starch and denaturation of proteins starts. This can lead to increased extruder capacity and longer retention times, with reduced energy and wear costs.
