Merkmale

Unique knife & frame design

Unique knife & frame design

Reduces mechanical stress and increases hygiene

The knives are only welded at one end of the knife frame, which gives the system a degree of elasticity, and reduces the risk of bending or breaking. This enables a longer lifetime, as well as increased repeatability. Furthermore, our unique design has been shown to reduce losses of fats and fines, and to inhibit the build-up of curd during production, thus enhancing hygiene.

Dimple heating jacket

Dimple heating jacket

Improves heat transfer and control over the heating process

The curd/whey mixture is heated (or cooled) by a dimple jacket filled with hot water, which is wrapped around the bottom of the vat (with an option to have it wrapped around the side walls of the tank body, if needed). This method can achieve the same heat transfer effect as steam heating, but with a lower temperature. Moreover, the temperature is easier to control, thereby reducing fouling and denaturation of the whey proteins.

Stable Vat design

Stable Vat design

Increases equipment lifetime

Over time, frequent heating and cooling of the vat can lead to cracks. Our vat design takes these temperature fluctuations into account. The critical areas are designed to allow a degree of movement, which reduces the risk of cracking and increases the lifetime of the equipment. In addition, the inner and outer wall of the tank are heated at the same time, allowing the vat to expand evenly.

Control system

Optimizes production of all cheese types

The control system can be used independently or fully integrated into your plant control system. Based on an analysis of the data generated, you can fine-tune your production to meet your priorities – such as preventing product waste or reducing processing time. It helps you get the best quality end product with the most efficient process, while allowing the maximum freedom to adapt recipes.

Vertical shafts

Vertical shafts

Increases the number of possible products

Thanks to the double vertical shaft, it is possible to work with a wide variety of filling levels. This expands your freedom to produce different cheese types without compromising the equipment’s performance.
