Quick facts

Unit for blending cottage cheese curd with dressing and additives

Capacity

5,500 litres

Applications

Cottage cheese

Features

Curved agitators

Gentle agitation, uniform particle distribution

The agitators are slightly curved, allowing curd particles to flow smoothly over them. Mounted at an angle, they nonetheless create sufficient turbulence to blend the curd and dressing thoroughly, maintaining the structure of the curd and ensuring a uniform distribution of particles throughout the product.

Conical design

Efficient blending down to 25% of full capacity

The lower part of the blender is conical. This means that even when there is a low level of product, the agitators and scraper can still reach every part of the vessel- thereby ensuring the curds and dressing are always efficiently mixed and the curd particles are evenly distributed.

Vertical principle

Reduces product losses

When emptying, product exits the blender at the lowest point, naturally assisted by gravity and by the vessel’s conical design. The scraper moves product away from the walls towards the centre of the vessel, while the agitator pushes product downwards. These features combine to reduce product losses down to less than 2kg per batch, or by up to 90% compared to horizontal blenders.

Cooling jacket

Cooling jacket

Maintain product quality and safety

To secure product quality on a cottage cheese line, it’s important to maintain a stable, low temperature during draining, blending and packing. A cooling jacket around the bottom and sides of the unti takes care of the blending step. If, for some reason, the product needs to be held in the blender for a longer period, ice water can be pumped into the cooling jacket to keep it cool and safe.
