The machine

The Cerex Processor converts cereals (rice, wheat, corn, etc.) and/or all sorts of micropellets into a soft and tasty puffed cake / slice / cracker / biscuit. By means of heat and pressure, we bind the natural starch in the cereals / micropellets which results in healthy snack products.

Process description

  • The grain is fed through a hopper, volumetrically metered and introduced by a feed-slide into the mould.
  • The mould closes, crushing and baking the grain for a short period, after which a little opening is created to enable the expansion of the grain or pellet and thus forming the cake shape.
  • The slice is ejected onto a conveyor, which leads the slices to the flavouring and/or packaging area.
