GEA offers both batch and continuous curd draining and molding systems for processing a variety of cheese types. Our solutions are designed to offer fast, flexible and efficient operation, and promise reproducible processing for top quality cheeses.
The prepress vat (PPV) unit from GEA is a highly flexible batch machine for curd draining, prepressing, cutting and mold filling. The system can be used to process multiple product types and cheese sizes. Easy to control from user friendly operator panels, PPV machines from GEA promise 100% batch separation. We can supply units in a range of sizes with capacities of 8,000-30,000 liters. Options include filling with or without whey (for cheeses with mechanical holes, like Tilsit cheese), manual or automatic filling, and leveling of the whey/curd bed. The PPV is fully configured for cleaning-in-place.
