Introduction of Fully Automatic kurkure type snacks food production Lines

Kurkure are extruded snacks, very crunchy and great in taste. Kurkure are made by extrusion process. The kurkure corn meal is moisturized in the flour mixer with water and fed to the rotary die extruder. In the extruder, due to excess heat and pressure from the screws the meal gets heated and the moisture content gets reduced. The meal passes through the die and gets cut by the cutting knifes into required lengths. The kurkure are fried in cooking oil and then cooled before flavoring. Seasoning is sprayed on the kurkure to improve their taste.Machines involved in making kurkure:

  1. Flour mixer with feeder - to mix corn meal with water to prepare the flour for kurkure and more mixture from mixer machine to rotary head extruder for kurkure type snacks.
  2. Rotary head extruder for kurkure type snacks - to cook the corn meal and extrude the kurkure from the die. The rotary die twists and curls the meal before extruding giving a uniform texture.
  3. Feeding elevator - this equipment is proved for transfer the corn curls from extruder to rotary sieve.
  4. Rotary sieve - the fines or small particles that are produced as the collets are removed by this rotary sieve.
  5. Continuous frying system with heat exchanger - to fry the kurkure in hot cooking oil. The uniform frying introduces the crunchy taste to the kurkure.
  6. De-oiling belt – to remove exceed oil from corn curls.
  7. Linear feeder - this devices used to feed corn curls for flavouring  on seasoning system.
  8. Automatic seasoning system with Slurry System - to add required seasoning to the fried and cooled kurkure to give the different flavours to them

Grit mixer feeder

To mix corn meal with water to prepare the flour for Kurkure from corn meal, rice meal, corn grits, millet, etc as raw materials for production of puffed corn curls, Jas enterprise manufacturer of continuous proportioning in-line mixers. In-line mixers are made from polished stainless steel 304. Discharged material convey to the rotary head single screw extruder by screw feeder. Cornmeal is carefully chosen for use in puffed corn curls. The cornmeal must be of fine texture so that it produces a pleasant feel as it is eaten. Also, cornmeal with a low moisture content is used in this process. Too much moisture in the meal will render the product soggy. Cornmeal inspected for moisture content is placed into a mixing bin and sprayed with a fine mist of water as it is stirred. Water poured directly into the meal will result in gluten formation, uneven distribution of moisture, and clumping of wet grain. When the desired consistency is achieved, the mixture is immediately extruded.

Kurkure extruder

We manufactuer kurkure extruder where in we carry the process of gelatinization in a concentric cavity between two dye, one rotary with 3 blades (fingers) plus grooves, and the other one with grooves only.
The action of these blades on the rotating head creates the necessary condition of pressure and heat to achieve gelatinization of the raw material. Product is expanded and formed in a narrow gap between the two plates.
Blades affixed to a circular knife support ring mounted on the outer edge of the rotor cuts to the desired size. Constructed with painted mild steel, 2" tubular frame, mild steel painted belt guard, stainless steel hopper, stainless steel guard at product discharge and painted castings.

After extruding of corn curls from kurkure exruder the kurkures are convey for separating the fines or small particles. This incline feeding elevators all cotacting parts are food grade.

Rotary sieve

Description of Rotary sieve
The fines or small particles tend to absorb oil and flavorings and are undesirable to include in a package of cheese curls. The fines or small particles that are produced as the collets are removed by this rotary sieve. Adapted for a variety of products and can simultaneously sort into several different grading classifications.

Pellet kurkure nicknack continuous fryer

Description of Pellet kurkure nicknack continuous fryer
State-of-the-art Pellet frying line for uniform frying of various pellet snacks like curls, balls, rings, wheels, tubes, chips, sticks, kurkure, Nik Naks, chataka pataka, Twisties, Bingo! Tedhe Medhe etc. The product quality is excellent and system is simple and easy to operate.
This phase represents the heart of the whole process as the immersion of pellet into the oil bath causes its expansion: the final step is the edible snack.
The key principle is that the quick heating of the pellet (frying temperature ranges between 185-200°C) causes the softening of the matrix and the very quick transformation of its residual water in vapour, so that the consequent pressure produces the expansion of the pellet.
Complete system consists of frying section and peddles, sub merger belt, top hood, takeout belt, oil filter, heat Exchanger.
The flow of oil ensures a linear flow of oil, which is necessary in order to have a uniform frying time for the entire product.The equipment is designed to have a low oil holding capacity (150 Liter) in order to achieve low oil turnover ratio.

flavour applicator and tumbler

Description of flavour applicator and tumbler
Fried snacks are flavoured according to consumer tastes and the type of pellet to be used. From the technical point of view, it is necessary that flavouring be made immediately after the frying process, so that the absorption of the oil in the surface is completed.

flavouring system should grant:

  • A uniform distribution of snack seasoning, avoiding the forming of lumps;
  • Reduced quantity of flavour wasted;
  • gentle handling of snacks.

Jas enterprise's flavouring drum, where pellets are put into and are continuously overturned due the rotation of the drum. The flavour is sprayed on the pellet in order to avoid the forming of lumps.
In the case of hot-air expansion Puffing press technology, it is necessary to spray first the oil and then the flavour on the pellets; as a consequence, the total oil content is normally kept under 10%.
We manufacture Continuous Flavouring Applicator, which is a rotary horizontal drum blending the fried products and flavor together so that the flavor is evenly coated as for as practically possible. Degree of inclination of the drum is adjustable according to product. Constructed with stainless steel 304, the drum is provided with inwardly projecting product lifters.
