The Clextral preconditioner is an equipment component in feed extrusion lines that makes it possible to hydrate, preheat and homogeneously mix powdery raw materials with injected fluids (steam, water and potentially oil or slurries). This operation is carried out on a continuous basis by two horizontal intermeshing counter-rotating shafts fitted with adjustable paddles as it facilitates heat and mass transfer as regularly as possible between the solid, liquid and gaseous phases. An advanced filling control device interacts directly on the material inside the mixing chamber and enables the filling ratio to be adjusted and generate better product distribution.
