Stretching Machines - Water

GEA offers an extensive range of hot water stretching machines with augers, dipping arms and rotary paddles, together with curd cutting equipment for highly versatile batch or continuous processing of curd cheeses. For pilot and small-scale producers we offer a compact, all-in-one stretching machine and molding unit with a small footprint, but without compromising on GEA renowned high-quality processing.

GEA has developed hot water stretching machines that allow our customers to process a wide range of curd cheeses. From compact standalone units for stretching and molding, to batch and continuous production systems for medium-scale right through to industrial throughput, our stretching machines guarantee gentle curd handling to retain optimum cheese texture, structure and flavour. GEA systems feature precise control of water delivery and temperature, cheese residence time and whey recovery. Our stretching machines can be combined with the GEA range of dry and liquid salt dosage equipment and with our molding machines, including high-capacity carousel systems. Options include pipework for external cleaning-in-place, Teflon or Vulcan non-stick treatment, and PLC automation and control with remote assistance.
