Baker Perkins MPF19 benchtop extruder for research and product development

Thursday, 16 February, 2017 | Supplied by: Baker Perkins Inc

Baker Perkins has added a new version of the benchtop MPF19 to its range of twin-screw extruders for the food industry.

The extruder provides information for research and product development work in a variety of applications, including snack, cereal, ingredients and pellets, with scalable geometry to Baker Perkins’ range of production extruders. The extruder is also used as a research tool in the academic world.

The benchtop extruder features a clam-shell barrel, which enables the machine to be stopped at any time with immediate access to view the state of material being processed. As adjusting the formulation, process settings and screw configurations are all straightforward, and the screw configurations identical in geometry to larger extruders, the extruder is a tool for comparing and establishing recipe formulations.

The control panel includes most of the features found on production machines and includes a full recipe management system holding up to 50 recipes, historical trending of data and connectivity to a PC to capture that data. Full automatic start-up and shutdown sequences mirror production extruders.

Available as a fully integrated package with onboard HMI or a standalone unit with a separate panel, the extruder provides outputs in the 5 to 25 kg/h range. Segmented screws allow great flexibility for profile design and splined agitator shafts maximise reliability.
