The Ross AMK Kneader Extruder combines the technologies of a double-arm mixer with an extrusion screw. The sigma blades of the extruder turn at different speeds and opposite reversible directions. During the mix cycle, the extrusion discharge screw assists in cutting and reducing solids while continuously moving materials within reach of the mixing blades. Once mixing is complete, the discharge screw is reversed and utilized to empty the trough. The extruder comes in sizes from 2 to 4000 liters and is available in both Class IV strength (low to mid-range horsepowers) and Class V strength (high horsepowers).
