ZSK MEGAVolume PLUS Twin Screw Compounder Food Extruder

Source: Coperion K-Tron


The food market used to be our home ground. This is where we have our roots. Under the name of Werner & Pfleiderer, we continuously set new standards in food extrusion with products from the UK dough kneader to the Continua cooking extruder.

We openly confess: We have neglected these roots for some time. However, we have considerably extended our system and process know-how and optimized our extrusion plants in the meantime.

The ZSK MEGAvolume PLUS twin screw compounder is our latest trailblazing development. It achieves up to ten times the throughput rate of its predecessor, the Continua. The combination of a high torque, large free volumes and maximum speed sets new standards in food extrusion. Let our Food Test Lab convince you of this machine’s performance.
