Food Extrusion in Processing

Pilot Food Extrusion PacMoore Innovation Lab

From crisp grains to crunchy cookie bits to protein crisps to precooked flours, our twin screw food extrusion systems are designed to accommodate a broad range of products.

Innovation Emphasis
On June 22, 2015 the PacMoore Innovation Lab in Gridley, IL was opened and dedicated to the glory of God with a Proverbs 16:3 plaque that is placed on all new PacMoore buildings. This site was designed with our customers in mind – to offer product development support by utilizing our Wenger TX-57 twin screw pilot extruder and PacMoore’s own Jon Baner – our Senior Technical Manager, a Certified Food Scientist, and a guru in the field of extrusion.

Production Mindset
PacMoore’s full scale Coperion 120 twin screw extruder was proudly commissioned at our Mooresville facility at the end of 2016.
