Schenck Process Group completes acquisition of Baker Perkins
- Company News
Baker Perkins emphasised its capability to supply equipment producing the widest range of snack and cereal products, at the Agroprodmash exhibition in Moscow, October 6 – 10.
Baker Perkins' twin-screw extrusion technology for snack and cereal production is at the heart of versatile systems producing a wide range of high-quality snacks and ready-to-eat cereals. The Baker Perkins SBX Master™, a well proven twin-screw extruder, is used extensively in these industries.
With low running costs, minimal waste and fast changeovers, extrusion is an attractive process for snack manufacturers. Companies of all types and sizes use the technology, from new market entrants to established multi-nationals.
Baker Perkins is continually developing innovative processes for snack production, often adapting technology from other food industries. Sheeted snacks that can be fried or baked, flavoured croutons and puffed pellet snacks are recent examples.
The SBX Master™ plays a key part in the modular Snack Master™ and Cereal Master™ concepts, which enables a line to be extended with additional process units to broaden the range of products that can be made.
Companies can enter the market with an uncomplicated extrusion system making standard, direct expanded snacks or cereals such as corn curls, chipsticks, cocoa balls and multigrain loops. As business expands, the system can be extended to make a full portfolio of high specification, complex products including whole grain / multigrain and sweet or savoury filled pillows.
A new development is an extruder with an extended barrel that increases the range of process options for extruded breakfast cereal flakes. The new system combines cooking, cooling and pellet forming in a single extruder to provide a compact system suitable for the majority of extruded flakes. For high output and some multigrain products a separate forming extruder would be the preferred option.
As well as extruded breakfast cereals Baker Perkins also offers systems where the grains are cooked in a rotary steam cooker. A range of flaking rolls, toasters, shredders, dryers and syrup coating units can be added to form versatile plants capable of traditional or multigrain flakes, bran sticks and shredded products.
