04/04/2016: New book on extrusion technology complements training


Presenters of highly-regarded short courses on extrusion technology, Dennis Forte and Gordon Young have published a new text book, 'Food and feed extrusion – an applied approach to extrusion theory'.  
This book developed over a period of almost twenty years – during which time the authors conducted industry short courses first in Australia and New Zealand, then for ten years in Thailand, and more recently in Norway.

Like the courses, this book aims to present the theory behind extrusion technology, but in a way which clearly applies in practice. Understanding the theory behind the process – and how it applies to real manufacturing processes – means that formulations and processes can be designed to be more robust, appropriate equipment can be selected for the required duty, and effective operating procedures and guidelines can be developed – leading to more reliable processes and consistent product. 

This book is relevant to all types of extruded human foods and animal feeds, and all types of equipment used to produce them: single- and twin-screw extruders, and specialised snack food machines.  It considers how the equipment and processes operate, and how the process conditions interact with the ingredients used.

The authors are also presenting an 'Aquafeed extrusion technology' course in Norway from 9 to 11 May, as well as courses in Thailand and Australia in July and August. Learn more HERE.
