Finishing Incline Conveyors

What do they do? This conveyor maintains temperature and ‘finishes’ adding texture (grain structure) to Italian (Pasta Filata) Cheeses. The Finishing Incline Conveyor essentially extends the filatura step (that creates the characteristic elasticity) of the Pasta Filata Cheese Making process. Filatura?  The Filatura step entails kneading & stretching the cheese in/with  hot water/whey to achieve  the desired texture/grain structure.

The teflon coating, which is available on Finishing Incline Conveyors’ augers and interior/exterior body, creates a non-stick surface. Teflon coating is an available option for additional equipment, both inside and outside of italian cheese making. Koss Industrial has over 30 years of experience designing & fabricating some of the world’s finest custom equipment for the Food, Dairy and Sanitary Stainless Industries.
