10. How Snack Food Extruder Machine Works
The material containing certain moisture will be subjected to pressure from many sides in the extruder, including the thrust of the screw, the barrel inner wall, the reverse screw, the kneading block, the blocking effect of the forming die, the heating effect of the outer wall of the barrel and the friction between the screw and the material, the friction between the material and the barrel, etc.. So a large amount of heat is generated inside the material and the barrel of the screw.
Under the influence of these combined factors, the material in the barrel will be in a high temperature and high pressure state. The pressure at this time exceeds the saturated vapor pressure of water at the extrusion temperature. The water in the material will not evaporate because of boiling, and the material reaches a molten state.
When the material is extruded from the die, the pressure instantly drops to atmospheric pressure. Then the water in the material is instantly evaporated, while the temperature also drops to about 80℃. Then the material becomes a certain shape of puffed product with porous structure. After adding the cooling system to the barrel, it can produce micro-puffed or non-puffed products.
