Extrusion Facility

The Extrusion Innovation Suite is situated in the Agri-Food Innovation Centre. The facility is federally inspected.

The equipment list consists of a co-rotating, twin screw extruder, extrusion auxiliary equipment, and modular post-extrusion processing equipment. Our twin-screw extruder operates between 20-100 kgs per hour depending on the product and we have a preconditioner for formulations that require longer cooking or hydration times.

Our post-extrusion processing equipment include: tunnel dryer, continuous fryer, tumbler for coating, particle size reduction equipment, tray dryer and packaging equipment. Most of our post-extrusion processing equipment is modular and can be moved in or out as the processing conditions require.
