Many scientific studies show that expander technology is an essential addition to a modern pelleting machine, as a useful tool to fulfill a wide range of customer needs in order to provide a different feed for every animal’s life stage.
The expander is installed right after the existing short-term conditioner and is suitable for any pellet mill brand. Conditioning of the feed takes place before the expander in the short-term conditioner with the addition of saturated steam and eventually liquids (molasses, fats), in order to ensure the success of the desired treatment.
