Milk Specialties Global, Clara City has two extruder lines in our plant. We have the capability to do 1,500 - 2,000 lbs. batches of production recipes in our mixers and just one of our extruders can produce 700 - 750 lbs. of finished product per hour.
The complete extrusion line, including the dryers and the coating line has a production capacity of approximately 1,200 lbs. per hour, or 3.5 million lbs. per year.
We can operate our extruders 24 hours a day, 365 days per year. In addition to coating our extruded products, we can also fry extruded food products. The minimum production run of a single product from our extrusion line is 30,000 lbs.
A first test run can produce 10,000 lbs., but subsequent runs will be limited to 30,000 lbs. or over.
