Producers can now benefit from a range of blockformer upgrades from Tetra Pak Processing, which include a new lift-up door, high capacity twin-vac towers for use on existing equipment and a more flexible checkweigh system.
The lift-up door can be retrofitted on all Mk2 and Mk3 Tetra Tebel Blockformer bases and replace the bottom-hinged door and vertically actuated cylinder with a door that pivots on the upper edge and two actuating cylinders.
This results in a substantial reduction in curd losses. With the new door design, the cheese block does not come into contact with the door seals, eliminating the risk of curd sticking, damaging the block and creating door closing and cleaning problems.
