Cheese vats and cisterns SKH/SCH 2O 500–5000 l
Cheese vats SKH and cisterns SCH 2O are used for thermic processing of larger quantities of milk (500–5.000 liters) into various dairy product, such as: cheese, curd, ricotta, yogurt, pasteurized milk, … They enable thermic processing of milk in the range between 4 °C and 100 °C. Plevnik cheese vats and cisterns are made in accordance to international standards, CE directives and the latest findings in dairy industry. They are created for making extraordinary dairy products and for modern and successful cheesemaking stories.
Up to 10 % less energy consumption thanks to well‑insulated containers and a laser welded heat exchanger that allows an efficient energy and thus saves energy and money.
Good and efficient processing of cheese mass
CUTTING: The vat form and the cheese mass cutting method with two cutting assemblies provide a 2-4 % greater cheese yield from the same quantity of milk (more cheese mass and less cheese dust). The Plevnik harps are specially designed, sharpened and polished to facilitate smooth cutting. Substituting harps for other stirrers is simple – in a single move. STIRRING: Integrated stirring shovels are automatically activated when the stirring direction changes. They create efficient stirring for drying of the cheese grains.
Automated processing procedures and remote control
Convenient and easy management using smart controllers that control processes and make the working day more efficient and organized. Save time and money with start and shutdown delay of processes. Set them in such a way that in the morning, thermally treated milk is ready for cheesemaking. Possibility to record and document all active process parameters (temperature, stirring, etc.) and remote control (Wi-Fi).
Easy control and cleaning
Easily and quickly control the Plevnik cheese vat or cistern. Due to a well-conceived design of Plevnik devices, including controllers and stirrers, their handling is easy, and the work becomes faster and more efficient. You can start all processes (cutting, stirring, thermal treatment etc.) simply by pressing a button.

Remote acces (WiFi)
You can have control over the process at every moment – even if you are not in a dairy: connect to the controller with mobile devices (optional) and remotely control and manage cheese production.
You can: turn on, start delay, transfer records, skip to the next step in a process, change temperature, and some other parameters such as stirrer speed or direction.
The optional recording of processes enables a simple, reliable and safe production.
