Working principle

The process begins by pre-filling a portion of the cream into the blender. Then cheese curd is transferred via the Tetra Pak® Drum Drainer. The two specially designed agitators operate independently from each other to ensure gentle, but efficient, blending of cheese curd, cream and additives. Once the transfer of cheese curd is complete, the remaining portion of cream is added. Optional load cells work in combination with control systems to ensure high accuracy in cream and additive dosing. Once the blending process is complete, the final product is transferred to the filling machine.
