Urschel dairy solutions provide quality size reduction for a variety of cheese varieties.
Cheese characteristics vary widely in terms of fat, moisture content, hardness, and more. These factors need to be considered when assessing the desired end-product but Urschel, has a range of premier cutting solutions for manufacturers working with difficult-to-cut cheese products.
The Affinity Dicer is the largest cheese dicer Urschel manufactures, delivering a sanitary design, optimal high capacity output, and precision cuts.
The Affinity Dicer can process high fat, cold temperature products like cheese with additional feed assistance via the feed roll and feed drum delivered as the product transitions through the cutting zone.
The Urschel family of CC/CC-D series shredders deliver precise cuts at the high yields required by the cheese industry. Each model offers continuous operation for uninterrupted production, and accepts an input product size up to 89 mm. Models include the longstanding, production-proven CC and CC-D along with the newer CC-DL and CCX-D.
These high capacity, versatile machines feature interchangeable quick locking double-rings, single-adjustment cutting heads that enable processors to change the type of shred in just minutes. Specially designed knives do not require sharpening and are inexpensive to replace. Types of cuts include varieties of full shreds, oval shreds, crescent shreds, wide oval shreds, strip cuts, granulations, and flat slices from a myriad of cheeses. The thickness of the shred can be adjusted to suit specific production environments.
One of the key strengths to all of these CC model machines is the operating principle. Product delivered to a feed hopper enters the rotating impeller and is held against the inner surface of the cutting head assembly by centrifugal force. The cutting head assembly consists of several stationary, individual cutting stations. Slices or shreds are produced as product passes each knife in a smooth and uninterrupted manner. Length is controlled by input product size.
