Location: Centre for Feed Technology (FôrTek) Ås, Norway
This 3-day course covers the principles of extrusion, the design of extrusion processes, and the formulation of extruded aquafeeds. Principles learned will be demonstrated using the extruder in the Centre for Feed Technology pilot plant.
The course will cover topics from the basics of extruders and their configuration, through what is happening chemically and physically inside the extruder barrel, to an understanding of extruder dies and extruder instability. Examples in product formulation and the design of extrusion processes will be included to demonstrate application of the theory. Principles learned will be applied during the practical demonstration on Day 2.
