Mechanical Processing Solutions
Insta-Pro International® provides chemical-free processing solutions to customers in over 100 countries for producing optimized ingredients that are used in livestock and poultry feeds, vegetable oils and soy food products. In addition, our extruders produce shaped feeds such as pet food and fish feed. Insta-Pro extruders work through heat created by friction and a sudden drop in pressure. This ingenuity to cook, gelatinize, expand, texturize, sterilize and deactivate anti-nutritional factors has created an infinite number of opportunities in the food and feed industry.
Producing solutions for animal feeds, such as extruded soybeans, has been the core of our business for over 45 years. Our extruders stabilize and sterilize animal by-products such as fish waste, tomato pumace and other vegetable by-products creating value-added feed ingredients. In addition, high shear dry extrusion stabilizes rice bran to deactivate enzymes increasing shelf life and market value.

The medium shear single screw extruder offers a unique combination of quality output and low capital investment making it a cost effective solution for processing premium shaped products.
Flexibility to produce a wide variety of shapes and sizes are key features of this technology, with ability to make pellets as small as 1.5mm.
The resulting products are lower in post-extruded moisture, requiring less drying. Which provide benefits of less nutrient degradation and reduced operational and capital costs.
