The business of feed and food has faced ever stronger challenges such as manufacturing cost and continuing with the quest for pursuing better product quality. IDAH Contra-Twin Screw Extruder, invented with a background of 20 years research experiences in co-rotating twin screw extrusion technology, is a prominent solution for the coming century in extrusion business.
ContraTwin, a new extrusion technology designed with twin screw extrusion features but with re-engineered screw designs and rotation direction to accommodate future challenges emerging in feed and food industry. Challenge that is hard to solve with existed extrusion technology. Challenges include:
Wider raw material choice (Change of protein source)
Energy efficient (Better power to throughput ratio)
Higher pellet quality with wider product characteristics
Lower operation skill requirement (Short learning cycle)
ContraTwin is the hybrid technology invented to answer these challenges.
The system is comprised of a stirring feeder, a DDC pre-conditioner and a ContraTwin screw extruder. ContraTwin Screw Extruder is designed for a long run and smooth operation with advanced engineered material for all exchangeable wear parts.
Features and Benefits
Unique drive train to minimize capital costs, energy costs and maintenance costs – We engineer for rugged 24/7 operations
Screws in ConraTwin don’t waste energy shearing product. They convey even the most difficult fibrous ingredient mixes to the point in the extruder where we choose to do the work.
Our mid-barrel die with shaft support system is the place we choose to do the work for most products. This short intensive work zone minimizes the wasted energy resulting from traditional extrusion systems, with minimum back-flow (pressure flow) giving minimized length of the work zone, reducing torque.
The very positive action of the contra-rotating screws forms highly uniform pellets even when fibrer content is high or viscosity is low.
