Machine for the continuous hardening of mozzarella cheese and similar products of any size. Usually this is the last component/equipment of a string cheese (mozzarella, pizza cheese, etc.) production line.
The product, coming from the moulding machine is introduced through a loading hopper inside the vat if necessary (otherwise moulding machine unload directly in first section of the line), proceeds to the end thanks to an “inertial “type motion. The usual product conveyor is composed by a board constituted of a modular component range shaped as a basket, built in a stainless steel AISI 304 plate, expressly perforated for the total uniformity of the product cooling section, which is in this way treated with cooling water at all points.
Product cooling occurs by means of water circulation in thermic exchange, through connection with a specific plate exchanger that has to be assembled near the vat. It is possible to proceed to the simultaneous hardening of different types of product. In fact, at the drain, the different sizes will be separated by special separators. The speed of vats is modifiable by customer through time setting on the general control panel. At the same time customer can decide if a full or middle run of the vats is preferred; considering weight, shape, and quantity of product inside. The line control is by the electrical panel box of stainless steel to IP65.
