Snacks Pellet Processing Lines
Over the last decade the snacks pellet market has grown massively worldwide and Kiremko have played a major role in being able to supply equipment incorporating the latest technology in the field of snack pellet processing to meet the exacting standards of our customers around the globe.
There are many different raw materials which can be used for pellet production such as; potato, rice, maize, wheat, corn etc.
The pellets are divided into two basic categories, those made from grain (rice, maize, wheat, corn) or those made from potato. The latter being the only one to give the authentic potato taste to the finished product.
Pelletised snacks are produced when the raw material is extruded into a recognisable shape, this can be done using a process known as direct expansion or alternatively using a process known as indirect expansion.
The direct expanded pellets are produced in a one step extruder and are ready for consumption following the extrusion process.
The indirect expanded pellets are extruded and then generally sold on as a semi-manufactured product to companies who finish the process by frying them in hot oil then dosing them with flavouring or seasoning before packaging.
Kiremko manufactures complete snack pellet frying lines starting from the bunker belt up to the packaging lines with a capacity range of 100 to 1.000 kg/hour.
Depending on the capacity required, the fryers are either electrically heated or indirectly heated through a steam/thermal oil heat exchanger.
