The GEA xTru Twin series of extruders adapts perfectly to any requirement or need: barrel and screw configuration are made-to-order and designed based on process requirements. As a result, every need in terms of production capacity, product type and footprint is catered for with a GEA xTru Twin extruder.

The new high-capacity twin-screw extruders are able to increase productivity by up to 40%. GEA engineers have used their experience and know-how to increase the cross-sectional area, rotation speed and pitch of the screws on the new machines, while maintaining the extruder footprint and screw length. This also allows customers to upgrade existing machines without buying a new machine or changing their plant layout.

GEA xTru Twin extruders can be used to create lines that enable quick switchover between production of flaked cereals and shaped cereals, guaranteeing high hourly production capacities.
