Fresh milk is heated to 72 ° C for milk pasteurization. Then the milk cooling starts at 36 ° C where the cheese production process takes place. The multi-purpose vat is made of AISI304 with an air space all around the tank to heat or cool the milk. The interspace is thermally insulated to increase energy efficiency. All the different process steps can be automated and controlled through the control panel. The shape is cylindrical with a flat bottom. There is the possibility of having a flag stirrer that works thanks to an inverter that controls the rotation speed. An automatic loading, unloading, washing and heating / cooling system can be provided so as to have a complete, automated and optimized plant for cheese production.

FDB provides different sizes of the multipurpose vat shown in the following table.
