IFT 2017 - Innovative Technology for Food Ingredient Extrusion, Feeding and Pneumatic Conveying
Sewell, NJ, USA (June 2017) – At this year’s IFT Tech 2017, Sands Expo & Convention Center, Las Vegas, NV, USA in Booth 1793 Coperion and Coperion K-Tron present the latest innovations and technologies for the food and pet food industry.
Stop by and visit with our experts on the ZSK Mv PLUS Twin Screw Food Extruder – The ideal extrusion system for many types of food and pet food
Coperion’s twin screw extruder ZSK Mv PLUS provides ideal conditions for the extrusion of many types of food and pet food products.

The effect of this is a constantly high conveying efficiency and perfect self-cleaning.
The modular design of the ZSK Mv PLUS and its unusual combination of free screw volume, screw speed and torque enable this twin screw extruder series to be individually configured for every application. The complete portfolio includes a wide range of sizes, allowing customers to process any required throughput range from laboratory to production scale.
