Extrusion is the method whereby ice cream is forced out through a tube and sliced into sections with a wire. It enables the creation of complex designs like faces or fruit slices.
If you're planning to produce novelty ice creams or 'Disney' characters, extrusion is the way to go.
Running at 200 cuts per minute, Tetra Pak's extrusion equipment is almost twice as fast as any of our competitors'. Since large volumes of product can be extruded from a single tube, you get a high output per line.
Our experts can support you with in-house tests of complex designs at our dedicated ice cream Product development Centre in Denmark. This means you can enjoy a vertical start-up when you commission your own line.
There are two main Tetra Pak Extrusion Tunnel models to choose from: the compact and self-contained Tetra Pak® Extrusion Tunnel M and the extremely versatile Tetra Pak® Extrusion Tunnel A3.
The Tetra Pak Extrusion unit LT extrusion and cutting module is designed for multipurpose shaping and cutting of low temperature ice cream typically between -12°C and -15°C (11°F and 5°F).
Tetra Pak Chocolate Enrober is perfect for enrobing ice cream and similar products with all types of liquid coating, including small particles.
