New Medium Shear Extruder Offers New And More Cost Effective Way To Make High Quality Pet And Fish Food

Des Moines, IA (PRWEB) July 23, 2013

Insta-Pro International (Insta-Pro) unveiled their new medium shear extruder, which finally answers the market's demand for a low cost extrusion solution that effectively produces pet and fish feeds of high quality equal to that of higher cost extrusion systems. This new medium shear extruder features the ability to use variety of ingredients at capacities up to two times more than high shear extruders which provides pellets as small as 2mm.

What this means for users of the new medium shear extruder is:

  •     Increased capacity
  •     Lower cost of production
  •     The ability to make smaller pellet sizes
  •     The ability to make different shaped pellets
  •     Improved pellet quality
  •     Easy to implement into existing extrusion systems

"We know that our customers across the globe have been struggling to find solutions to meet their customers need for capacity and pellet size variety at an affordable price," said Insta-Pro’s Vice President of Marketing and Sales Karl Arnold. "That’s why we've invested three years in designing and testing this revolutionary new machine that will deliver more for less and at the same time, give the producer more options in terms of pellet size and shape and overall improved production." He continued, "Our job is to help our customers make more money, save time and serve their own customers better. This machine will allow us to deliver all three."

The new medium shear extruder is currently being field tested Akin Sateru Farms in Lagos, Nigeria. Tester and HRM Oba Akinloye from Nigeria said, "Insta-Pro’s medium shear extruder gives us the ability to produce a smaller floating pellet of approximately 2mm+, which is not possible with high shear. Previously, with high shear extrusion, we produced pellets of 6 mm, which we then crumbled into pieces of less than 2mm, however the crumbles do not float. This is important for us." He went on to add, "We also find the medium shear pellets to be round and more uniform compared to the pellets from high shear.”

The spirit of innovation is a key component of the Insta-Pro success story demonstrated by its culture of research and product development, turnkey systems solutions and a proactive and responsive customer service model second to none.

Insta-Pro is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of human food and animal feed processing equipment. Insta-Pro products are used to transform raw ingredients into nutritional feed for livestock, pets and fish as well as vegetable oil, flour, cereals and meat extenders for the food processing industry.
