Precision in dosing guarantees a consistent ratio between flour, water and steam in the dough, and it is the first step to a steady production process. This allows us to avoid fluctuations in the extrusion and drying steps. Additionally, it ensures the right degree of gelatinization for gluten-free pasta.
Gluten-free flours from corn, rice, quinoa, pulses and more can be processed into pasta. As they do not contain gluten, their texture is based on starch gelatinization, which can occur thanks to the direct injection of steam and hot water. The Polymatik ensures top quality in gluten-free pasta.
To prepare for storage and packaging operations, hot pasta coming from the dryer cools to room temperature in less than 10 minutes. This operation must be managed well to safeguard the pasta structure and exclude risks of condensation, which can lead to molding inside the machine.
The Sortex A optical sorting range delivers the highest food safety standards and product quality for short and soup pasta. It effectively removes foreign materials as well as color and shape faults. Additionally, faults such as burnt and misshaped pasta and dough residuals can also be detected.
