Primoreels Has Revolutionised Production of Ultra Filtrated White Cheese
By replacing the traditional permeable membrane with a specially developed impermeable membrane, Primoreels has radically simplified the process of producing UF white cheese.
Salting UF cast cheese using permeable membranes is a cumbersome process that requires two turns of the containers.
Primoreels has devised a two-part solution comprising:
- a special impermeable membrane which eliminates the need to turn cheese containers twice during the manufacturing process. The impermeable membrane is placed on the coagulated cheese, salt is dosed on the membrane, and the containers are then sealed and placed in the fermentation room in an upright position.
- a new type of membrane dispenser that eliminates the risk of serious cross-contamination associated with the handling of the membranes.
The membranes are produced and dispensed in reels, and the endless strips of foil are never touched by human hands in the process. In addition, they pass a UV treatment device before being dispensed onto the cheese curd.
The reels with membranes will typically contain enough units to keep production running for up to 8 hours, thus eliminating the need to constantly refill membranes.
This inline approach to the process of filling, coagulation, cutting and packaging performed in a continuous flow, under ultra-clean conditions, is the safest and most efficient method on the market.
The Primoreels system makes it possible to cut the cheese in the containers before placing the impermeable Primoreels® membranes. The process also permits producers to add herbs, oils, etc to the cheese.
