Course: Food & Feed Extrusion Technology

8/5/19 8:00 am to 8/7/19 4:00 pm Australian Eastern Daylight Time (Victoria)
CSIRO Food Innovation Centre

Contact: Gordon Young

This course covers the principles of extrusion, the design of extrusion processes, and the formulation of extruded products. Principles learned will be demonstrated using a pilot extruder in the CSIRO facility. The program is relevant to the production of all types of extruded products — eg expanded snacks, breakfast cereals, pastas and third generation snack pellets, pet foods and aquafeeds. The course is relevant to both single and twin screw extrusion technology. The course will cover topics from the basics of extruders and their configuration, through what is happening chemically and physically inside the extruder barrel, to an understanding of extruder dies and extruder instability.
