Combo Cheese Vat/Pasteurizer

Dairy Heritage combo vats reduce your equipment cost by combining a cheese vat and a vat pasteurizer into one unit.  It also takes up less space than two pieces of equipment. The combo vat meets all PMO requirements for pasteurization, including a leak detect valve.

Dairy Heritage cheese vats are designed for maximum output and usability.  We care about details that make your life easier, such as sloped upper sidewalls for leaning into the vat. The agitators can be easily removed without tools, and the rectangular vat makes it easy to work with the finished curds and the slabs of cheese.

The agitator system is designed to handle curds gently, reducing curd fines and cutting butterfat losses up to 75%. The overlapping agitators suck the curds from the corners of the vat for complete agitation.  We also care about safety - the agitators have a slip clutch that helps to prevent injuries.
