Draining and washing equipment​ for cottage cheese

Cottage cheese curd is made by fermenting milk with lactic acid bacteria. The curd is then cut and cooked to achieve the right moisture content. Afer this, the whey is drained off, the curd is cooled and rinsed in water before finally being blended with the dressing. When produced in small quantities, draining, washing and blending can be carried out in the vat itself.

However, for the production of larger volumes, special equipment is needed. It begins with a draining belt, where the product is drained, cooled and the lactic acid is rinsed off by rinsing in water. (Should more thorough rinsing be needed, a special washing tank can be added to the line). The final step before packing takes place in a blender where the dressing is added.
