Processed cheese comes in a variety of forms and often consist of a blend of natural cheeses, flavoring, and stabilizing ingredients. Often times the raw cheeses are packaged as blocks, wheels, or drums. To more efficiently melt and homogenize the cheese, the bulky materials need to be ground or reduced to increase material surface area.
Our cheese Extructor specializes in reducing large blocks, wheels, or drums of natural and processed cheeses to a suitable particle size for rapid melting. The low-speed rotor draws in material and breaks it down without heat input which could prematurely melt the cheese. Typical output size ranges from 1/4″ to 1/2″ diameter extrudates which are conveyed to downstream blending and cooking steps.
