In 2015, Clextral continued to market its new EVOLUM+ twin-screw extruders, enriching the range with new products. EVOLUM+ combines the proven features of the EVOLUM® range with advanced technology to give processors new levels of throughput, flexibility, and control, while ensuring maximum product quality and process stability. This new generation of extruders also takes into account the steadily increasing hygiene requirements of users. By intensifying the process, Clextral has reduced the equipment’s carbon footprint for the customer:
- At unchanged size, EVOLUM+ delivers up to 40% higher volume production over the current EVOLUM® models, resulting in a better return on investment through a profitable processing solution.
EVOLUM+ offers increased volumetric capacity while optimizing the volume/ energy ratio. The investment cost divided by throughput is dramatically reduced.
- Advanced Thermal Control (ATC) is a self-learning proprietary innovation for equipment that ensures improved response time, enhanced process stability of up to 70%, and energy savings of up to 20% during the start-up phase, as well as lower production waste from variations in temperature.
- The EVOLUM+ range has been specifically designed for more hygienic processing and food safety. The extruders are built of either corrosion-resistant painted steel or stainless steel, depending on the application. New ergonomic design and open profiles make the entire machine accessible.
