Hardening Vat VRM



Hardening Vat
Hardening Vat built by connecting several pre-fab stainless steel modules.
The initial module bearing the motorization for advancement system, the final module containing the product extraction belt and, according to the length of the vat, one or more intermediate modules; during the working the continuous visual check of the cheese in the vat is allowed.
The product to be hardened, coming from the molding machines is introduce through a loading hopper inside the vat; a series of oscillating beds in stainless steel put in action by a connecting rod mechanism and by a crank moves the product together with a series of water jets coming out from the holed pipes assembled inside the vat.

The electrical motor which puts into action the oscillating beds has two speeds (700 and 1.400 rpm) so that it is possible to choose two working cycles from the control panel: the normal production cycle is made up of slow advancement, fast return and stop for some seconds (chosen from the timer) so that the product advances along the vat; the standing cycle is made up of slow advancement and continuous slow return without stops, so that the product stays in the acquired position. When the hardening is ended the product is automatically conveyed out by a belt in stainless steel or in alternative, in modular plastic elements put in action by a geared motor unit.
A centrifugal pump has the double task of recycling the cooling water to the plate exchanger and recovering the cleaning solutions at the end of the working.
Electrical controls are housed in a waterproof board in stainless steel, inside which there is also the power part.
