Tecnal's Basic and Premium lines bring you a full range of pasteurizers for cheese milk, cream, and whey. Our lines cover flow rates from 500 to 50,000l/h.

 

Temperature and duration of cheese milk pasteurization are important parameters that are precisely determined by Tecnal's engineering department to attain the desired milk quality.

All of our designs are created in 3D and then built in skid form to allow delivery of assemblies that have been tested and are ready to be connected.

 

Milk pasteurization is an important step in the cheese-making process, a step on which compliance of the finished product with food safety standards depends.

All of our designs are compliant with 2006/42/EC machines directive and 1935/2004 food safety certification requirements. Feel free to contact us for your IFS and BRC standards problems.

Other technical characteristics:

  • Temperature regulation by water loop
  • Securing and monitoring of pressures and back-pressures
  • Tubular holding section
  • Tracking and traceability of the process
  • Independent washing
  • Energy Pack

You can also consult us for yoghurts and ice cream mixes pasteurizers

Tecnal is the specialist and world leader in vat lines applied to the production of Camembert, Brie, and other soft cheeses.

Tecnal proposes a full range of DynaFrom vat lines to cover all your production needs.

The DynaFrom Batch line: production in batches or runs from 50 to 5,000 litres.

The DynaFrom Continuous line: production from 5,000 to 500,000l/h.

The vat lines designed, built, assembled, and tested at Tecnal bring you the following advantages:

  • Very high flexibility: you can mix different products and cheese-making technologies without losing too much time. The DynaFrom line lets you work in batch or continuous mode, from the filling station to the moulding station. You can transform the quantity of milk you want while monitoring and improving the precision of each cheese-making parameter.
  • Very high regularity of production: the geometry of our vats, associated with our slicing systems, with or without robots, guarantees the regularity of your grains of curd. The creation of fines and losses of proteins and fats are extremely limited.
  • Very good hygiene: the design of DynaFrom Batch and Continuous lines by Tecnal's engineering department optimizes the daily washing operations. Our solutions enable you to work in optimal conditions of hygiene and comply with international standards (IFS, BRC, etc.).
  • Tracking and traceability of production
  • Suitable moulding: We have several types of moulding suited to different standard deviation and budget objectives.

After being drained, cheeses (both small and large diameters) are removed from the moulds and set down on stainless steel ripening racks.

A manipulator with suction cups connected to a vacuum pump and circuit picks up the cheeses in the block forms and sets them down on one or more waiting racks.

Strength of the vacuum in the suction cups, designed by Tecnal, is adjusted to cheeses characteristics.

Removal from moulds by 2, 3, or 4 trays is possible, depending on flow rates.

Mould removal tools match with the removed format bya system of bins which are easy to change and wash. Vacuum circuit washing.
