Snack Master™ Standard Line + Module 3: Crouton Sprayer & Cutter
A standard Snack Master™ system comprises an SBX Master™ extruder, dryer and flavouring system to make a range of direct expanded products. This system can be extended using a specialist crouton die, followed by a coating system and cutter to create a range of straight or angle cut croutons.
Specialist dies create a number of streams of equal volume before shaping them with carefully-designed interchangeable inserts. An adjustable face cutter allows clean, accurate cutting of direct expanded products. Cutters and dies are mounted on a swing-arm for easy access and cleaning. Face-cutter blade changeover can be carried out without stopping the line. Blade position has micrometer adjustment for clean cutting and extended blade life.
A coating system and specialized crouton cutter added to the line allows straight or angled slicing of croutons or similar products.
The Baker Perkins twin-screw SBX Master™ extruder cooks the ingredients using a combination of heat, mechanical shear and moisture addition; flavours and colours can be added directly into the barrel. Manufacturers can choose from the full array of grain and rice as the basis for an extensive product portfolio. Savoury snacks are generally coated with oil and seasoning; sweet snacks can be sugar coated and subsequently dried.
Twin-screw extrusion is a highly versatile, economic process that successfully produces a broad variety of expanded snack products throughout the world. Baker Perkins extruders are a low cost-of-ownership tool allowing a wide range of snacks to be made with simple product changeover.
