Dual counter-rotating agitators
Counter rotating agitators achieve optimal mixing, which reduces rennet mixing time and makes it possible to predict the correct time for cutting. Optimal mixing also eliminates swirl in the vat, which reduces cutting time, gives a more consistent curd size, lower fat loss, and reduced fine creation. Finally, uniform mixing enables more consistent down-stream processing in belt machines.
Hot water heat transfer
We offer a choice of steam or hot water heat transfer. In our premium hot water vat, heat is transferred by a custom-engineered heat exchanger integrated into the vat wall. Unlike some laminar flow systems, this method effectively utilizes all the available surface area, providing gentle heating - without the risk of overheating and subsequent fat losses.
Patented seal design
Our unique seal has been proven in hundreds of machines and over millions of hours of equipment operation. When properly maintained, its superior design eliminates leaks. A leak detection port gives advance warning if maintenance is needed. While one side of the agitator contains a seal, the other is supported with a USDA-accepted internal bearing design – which can be inspected from the outside the vat.
The vat is designed to utilize the space in your plant effectively. Compared to round vat bodies, its design means the dual agitators can have a relatively smaller diameter, leading to lower centripetal speed at the blade tip. And this, in turn, means less yield-robbing energy going into the curd – and consequently higher yields.
