May 2016
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. Important aspects of peripheral systems (eg raw materials pre-processing, preconditioning, product drying) are also covered.
Location: Centre for Feed Technology (FôrTek) Ås, Norway
Drying is an essential operation in aquafeed production, and it is one of the most energy-intensive process operations. Yet it is often poorly understood and inefficient. This short course in Drying Technology combines the practical perspective of experienced industry professionals with the in-depth technical knowledge of drying processes.This course is about understanding drying technology, and how to use that understanding to improve current processes, or design/select new systems that are both effective and efficient.
