For example, SPX’s Cheese Rack Filler is a specially designed rack filling system that enables the filling process to take place below the water level to help ensure the gentle treatment of soft, pressed cheeses. In addition, the filler is flexible to accommodate various cheese sizes and shapes.
How It Works
Pressed cheeses are conveyed on a belt conveyor from the mold emptier to the rack filler where they are loaded on the roller conveyor in the rack loading vat. After the roller conveyor is lowered below water level, the rack elevator pulls an empty rack from the rack storage system and places it with the lowest shelf in the loading position on a level with the roller conveyor. Each shelf is loaded one at a time by the means of a pneumatically-controlled pushing device. Afterward, the rack elevator steps the rack to the next position.When the rack is loaded and all the cheeses are under liquid, the rack is pulled out of the elevator to the position for crane collection to the brining vat.
