Verpackungsverfahren und Vorrichtung zum Extrudieren von zusammendrückbaren Produkten in einem Schlauch

Abstract

The method comprises the sheath extrusion of compactable products such as, for example, spun paste cheeses at temperatures in the range of 55°-65°C; the sheath portion, in which the product is introduced by extrusion, passes in a first constructive path serving to reduce the circum- scibed area of the sheath; by cutting and closing operations, the sheath is divided into packages which owing to the undergone construction take a section different form circular and such as to be modifiable in rectangular or square section by passing in a second constructive path causing by cooling at least partial compaction of the product and as a result the stabilization of the new shape.
