The new KDB 3 completes this series as the smallest “family member” with a capacity of up to 200 kg/h fresh cheese (of 15.5 to max 18 % DS) and cream cheese “light” (of 18 to max 26 % DS) – making it the only small-scale nozzle centrifuge for fresh cheese concentration on the market.
Like all centrifuges of the GEA PureCon range, our nozzle separators are the first choice when the desired product is a fresh cheese with the superior sensory characteristics comparable to traditionally manufactured cheeses. They ensure reliable, consistent product quality and an efficient process flow over the entire production cycle. With the launch of the KDB 3, this is now also possible for smaller batches without any compromises in terms of product quality and reliable performance. The result: Additive-free products with a delicate taste and creamy texture.

The KDB 3 has a nozzle bowl with a geometrically optimized profile that ensures best-in-class clarification, concentration and cleaning performance. The bowl contains a 3D printed segment insert for a continuous and guided product flow to the nozzles. This supports easy and convenient cleaning due to accumulation-free and precise fluid guiding – demonstrating our ability to apply state-of-the-art manufacturing technologies so as not to compromise on quality or function.
A redesigned solids catcher facilitates a uniform and guided product flow to the cheese hopper. In order to extend the operating time while maintaining a constant product quality and to prevent negative thermal impact on the product caused by friction, the KDB 3 is equipped with a cooled hood and solids catcher, which prevents product adherence to surfaces by means of the resulting condensate film.
A sterile air cover of the product room prevents product accumulation under the bowl and thus recontamination by yeasts and molds, resulting in a safer product. The sterile air is guided to the cheese hopper and released via the overflow in a controlled manner.
Our standard scope of supply includes a readily piped and wired skid. The perfectly synchronized setup of centrifuge, sensors and control devices not only ensures easy operation, but also a consistently high performance throughout the entire production cycle.
