Fresh cheese - Quark - Yoghurt separator. Nozzle separator suitable for the production of: Quark / Fresh cheese, Greek style yoghurts, Strained yoghurts, Labneh and Skyr. Dry matter adjustable by nozzle size and chosen flow between 15 – 22 %. Input capacity 5.000 up to 10.000 ltr/h. The separator separates fermented skim milk in heavy phase (whey) and light phase (curd / yoghurts) to concentrate the protein by a nozzle system. Ratio input / output between 2 - 3 ltr for 1 ltr of concentrated product. CIP cleanable. Motor: 30 kW. Including all auxiliary equipment around the separator such as double inlet filters, feed flow control for infeed skim milk, closed design with sterile air filter and vacuum system for extended shelf life of product, back pressure valve for whey, flow transmitter, vibro sensor, base frame and a free standing control panel with Siemens S5 PLC and Westfalia operators screen, quark funnel (CIP cleanable) with a drain valve and a quark screw pump.


- Thermisator (GEA Ahlborn VT40 LOCIN, 1992, 10.000 ltr/h) with balance tanks for water and product. 4 section plate heat exchanger, pumps, complete set control valves (Samson) for steam-cooling water, product valves, infeed and circulation pumps (Fristam). The unit was used for Inoculated / fermented skim milk thermisation before entering the quark separator. Thermal cycle: in at fermentation temperature (± 30 °C) -> heating to thermisation temperature (± 65 °C) -> out at separation temperature (± 43 °C). Including a long holding tube for ± 6 min.

- Water filter on inlet of water.

- Product plate cooler with 2 sections (GEA Ahlborn VT20 LOCIN, serial number: 170/3722, year: 1992) to cool product and stop fermentation. Valves for cooling by city water and ice water. Cooler has its own outfeed eccentric screw quark pump to have a minimum pressure in the cooler. Interconnecting piping between pump / cooler and valves. Excluding motor control cabinet (MCC).
