Overview

Butter Making Machine

Buttermaking

The cream is precisely heated to a constant temperature and churned to butter granules in cylinder 1. In cylinder 2, the granules are cooled down in a chilled butter milk bath before the butter milk is drained from the conglomerating butter lumps. 

In texturizer 1, the butter is kneaded to drain more butter milk. Then water, buttermilk, dairy culture, salt brine or other liquids can be dosed and a multiple stage mixer evenly blends all ingredients. In the vacuum chamber the enclosed air is extracted. Subsequently, in texturizer 2 the butter once more is thoroughly kneaded and mixed and an integrated butter pump ensures a continuous discharge.
