The Challenge: Design & Fabrication of Ice Cream and Water Ice Horizontal & Vertical Extruders and Nozzles

Deaton Engineering designs and fabricates ice cream and water ice horizontal and vertical extruders and nozzles. Our extruders are designed using parametric models to ensure they meet delivery and production requirements, and work the first time. The extruders can be designed for both new and existing product lines. Deaton Engineering understands sanitary design and manufacturing. DEI incorporates these principals into every extruder we design and fabricate.

The Solution: Custom extrusion equipment built for the demands of commercial production and compliance
