Servo motors allow chicken breast, pork and beef. "Our large Comitrol

"Pet food manufacturers tell us processing similar meats
for pets as humans is much more profitable. Vegetable
shreds are commonly processed on the Model CC Slicer,
and high-fat meat products are routinely diced on the
Affinity Dicer."
Ever Extruder, Festus, Missouri, offers a SuperCut
System that is adaptable to many existing die assemblies
already in use in production plants, as well as complete
die/cutter/hub systems that could be implemented with
a complete Ever Extruder Extrusion Line, or onto other
brands of equipment, says Alan Kirkland, engineering
manager for the company.
The Ever Extruder system includes a self-tensioning,
self-aligning hub that controls the set-up and pre-load
of the cutters against the die plate, adding consistency
and confidence that the cutting system is correct and
ready for production, he says. The cutters are offered in
low-count to high-count configurations to allow the cus-

"With the desire now for
high-meat and high-moisture
products, there has been a trend
to more gentle handling of this
tender product until it is dry."

tomer to pick the best match for the products they are
making. "Controlling cutting speed is critical to maintaining product quality, reducing product deformation
and preventing clumping of the product after it is cut,"
Kirkland says.
Ever Extruder also offers carbide die-plate options for
intricate or high-volume products. "This solid carbide
technology provides a wear-resistant material where the
die cavity details don't change, so product specifications
are always consistent," he says.
Additionally, Ever Extruder offers Flow-Valve technology with its Sanitary Start-Up Discharge System
(SSDS). "This system offers a small, simple and
removable valve that is positioned just before the die
assembly," Kirkland explains. "This technology offers
great sanitation control, safety control and flexibility
to the operator when running the extruder, and helps
to control cook, density, shear and cellular structure of
the kibble or pellets being made. This tool can be a key
part in 'dialing in' the products to control bag fill, drying
and absorption of fats, oils and flavors that may be added
after cutting."
Canton, Massachusetts-based Reiser offers customers a flow divider (or waterwheel) designed to divide a
single flow of product into multiple lanes to give exact
width and thickness, says Robert Freiberg, application
specialist. "Length control and/or weight control of the
portion is achieved by the Vemag positive displacement
pumping system," he says. "The accuracy of these dimensions allow for uniform thermal processing as well
as cooling ."
Daniel Tramp, technical sales, companion animal division, Wenger Manufacturing Inc., Sabetha,
Kansas, says the company offers knife blades for short
goods that can be flexible or rigid and travel along the
