This separator has been designed for the production of double cream fresh cheese from fat milk of 8 to 12 percent fat content. (The exact capacity is dependent on the parameters of raw and finished product.) The machine is driven by a frequency-controlled 3-phase AC motor without clutch via a flat belt. The self-cleaning bowl makes the machine suitable for fully automatic cleaning-in-place (CIP). Opening and closing of the bowl for discharging the solids takes place hydraulically using water. The product is fed into the machine through a closed-line system. Double centripetal pumps likewise discharge the heavy and light phases in a closed system.
