Vacuum fat addition

The vacuum mixer was conceived to integrate liquid ingredients (i.e., oil and melt fat) directrly in the extruded product as soon as it has gone through the drying process. The liquid absorption is guaranteed on a product with diameter ranging from 2 to 18 mm. with maximum humidity up to 8%.

Immediately after the mixing process has been completed, the product can be coated in the same machine. This happens in what is known as the expansion stage. The mixed material is powdered with unmixed material. This prevents the subsequent conveyor units from sticking together.
La Meccanica's molases mixer guarantees a great mixing effect and high throughput.
