A unique approach to extrusion training - This “applied" extrusion course, which we have presented in Thailand since 2011, provides participants with an understanding of the theory of the extrusion process, combined with pilot plant exercises demonstrating how the principles are applied across different products and extruder types.
This 3-day course covers the principles of extrusion, the design of extrusion processes, and formulation issues affecting extrusion. It is relevant to all types of extruder (single and twin screw) and all extruded food and feed products. Principles learned will be demonstrated using the extruder in the CSIRO pilot plant.
This 3-day course covers the principles of extrusion, and the design of extrusion processes for aquatic feeds, as well as how the formulation interacts with the extrusion process. Principles learned will be demonstrated using the extruder in the Laboratorio de Nutrición y Fisiología de Peces pilot plant.
