Butter Making Machine

Since the invention of the continuous buttermaking machine in 1941 by Dr. Fritz, GEA has continuously developed the principle further. Iinitially only small quantities of cream could be processed to make butter. The newest generations up to the current BUE model have been designed for large-scale industrial production

The buttermaking machine can be used to produce sweet, lactic and sour cream butter which are obtained from sweet or soured cream. Integrating additional elements, however, also allows the serial production of mixed fats with a reduced fat content, with vegetable fat additives or even with a reduced content of so-called SNF (solids, non-fat). 

Whether traditional or modified, the GEA buttermaking machine and the associated control elements allow all types to be produced in consistently high quality. The complete solution is rounded off by a CIP (cleaning-in-place) system to clean the system both simply and reliably. This CIP system comprises a hot water tank, a tank for the special washing caustic together with the necessary valves and a heating system with the corresponding pumps.
