How are prawn chips made with a prawn chips making machine?

The shrimp stick extruder adopts a new technology of electric heating, electronic automatic temperature control, cooking, cooking, and molding. First, mix the shrimp powder, starch, water, etc. in a certain proportion evenly, and add them to the hopper of the shrimp slicer. Then the screw stirring device driven by the motor pushes the slurry entering the machine forward, and cooks the slurry through the hot water in the steamer. Then, the raw materials are shaped into fine, smooth, and elastic cylindrical or oval shrimp sticks by the mold. After that, let the shrimp sticks cool before cutting them into thin slices with a slicing machine. Finally, dry the shrimp chips with a dryer machine to obtain the finished product. For direct eating, it just needs to use a batch fryer machine to fry it.

Shrimp chips making machine overview
