The Pasta Production Plant

The pasta production plant can produce around 72,000 tons of pasta annually. The plant has 5 automated pasta production lines, 2 for long cut and 3 for short cut pasta products.

Short Pasta Line

Cutting

After the shaping process, pasta is cut by a cutting disk unit mounted underneath the die. The devices for cutting “penne” shaped pasta, have their own cutting disk unit. After cutting, pasta has acquired its final form.

Pre-drying

The temperature reaches 100 °C and the average residence time of pasta ranges from 3 to 5 minutes depending on the line of each manufacturer and type of pasta produced. At the end of the vibrating pre-drier, moisture of the product should be 25% (+/- 1%).

Drying

The temperature exceeds 85°C and the average residence time of pasta in the drier ranges from 3 to 4 hours depending on the line of each manufacturer and type of pasta produced. At the end of the drier, moisture of the product should be 12% (+/- 0.5%).

Cooling

The temperature drops to 25 °C and the average residence time ranges from 8 to 10 minutes depending on the line of each manufacturer and type of pasta produced. At the end of the cooler, moisture of the product should be 11% (+/- 0.5%).

Storage

Pasta is stored in different tanks and is kept there until the packaging process. After storage, pasta is transported by a mechanical transport system to the appropriate packaging line.
