3. It mainly uses corn starch and rice flour as raw materials, and then put them into the mixer to make them mix evenly.

4. Using the motor as the power screw conveying, to convey the raw materials into the feeding hopper of the twin screw extruder. Also it can ensure the fast feeding, and reduce the second time pollution from human contact.


5. Twin-screw feed extruder: Under the conditions of high temperature and high pressure. So the starch structure in the raw materials changes to become easily absorbed nutrients. Through the feed mold to squeeze out the products. And then through the adjustment the cutting speed of the motor to get the fish feed pellets of the same size.


6. Then get them into the fryer. The fryer can ensure that to expose the oil to the high temperatures. And then it can set the frying time. So the fries go into the fryer which has a temperature of 200°C.
