  • It has the function of cooking, stretching and kneading any type of stretched-curd cheese, with medium-low moisture content and a compact structure
  • The product stretching happens by hot water, by steam or both
  • It is particularly suitable for those systems with a high hourly output
  • Continuous stretching production process
  • It’s possible to reach extremely interesting yields and reduce process losses to a minimum
  • Final stretching phase with kneading arms or with paddle


  • Entirely built in AISI 304 stainless steel. AISI 316 L optional
  • The stretching can happen by hot water in the first section, and by steam in the second section or both
