The POLICURD is closed and cleanable under CIP.
Made of 2 rectangular vats for collection, drainage and pressing of curd. The pressing system is composed of a plate made of pierced sheet cylinders. The pressing unit is movable and can pass from one vat to the otherone. The press is cleaned under CIP.
It is a fixed pressing system equipped with a pressing /filtering de-vice. It is proposed with different sizes of the pressing layer.
After the transfer of the blocks into the moulds, the cheese can be moved to the final pressing line according to the production technologies.
