EQUIPMENT
Meeting demand
As the cheese business continues to thrive,
making the right equipment decisions is paramount.

T
he specialty cheese industry has seen tremendous
growth over the last decade, and with that rise has come
advancements in equipment to make the process easier.
The same holds true for custom cheese processors, who have
seen demand for their products reach historic highs in the past
few years, and the need for more reliable and faster equipment
has been paramount.
As a result, a number of companies have released new
equipment that is helping these cheese producers keep up with
the growth.
NEW AND IMPROVED
There is a whole array of equipment designed for producing
specialty cheeses.
Some of the newer equipment is designed to fill and handle
cheese molds at increased speeds.
For instance, the Tetra Pak Mould Handling system is a new
solution utilized for pressing and forming of semi-hard and hard
cheeses in closed presses with complete mold and lid handling.
With this system, curd blocks are transferred from the
draining forming equipment to the handling system and collected
in a mold. Once covered by a lid, the molds are then conveyed to
the final pressing section in closed execution and the curd block

is pressed to shape the cheese. Then, a uniform rind around
the cheese forms, the result of a gradually increasing pressing
force. From there, the cheeses are de-molded and conveyed to a
brining system.
Downstream in the final pressing section, the cheeses are
de-moulded in the de-moulding line and conveyed to a brining
system. The moulds and lids are turned upside down before
they are cleaned by the rinsing machine and are ready to be
reused again.
The Tetra Pak Mould Handling system is PLC controlled.
The closed final presses are cleaned in place. The benefits of
this equipment are full automation, flexibility to press cheeses
of different shapes and sizes on the same equipment and has a
capacity of as much as 100 tons a day.
Tetra Pak also offers its Cheese Former, which provides a
method of fresh cheese production in which whey draining,
cheese forming and final shaping in an individual unit.
More advancements have been made with continuous
cheese lines. In these solutions, a conveyor line gets
started with basins or containers, which are taken
through all the steps of production, including
coagulation, cutting and draining.
