Prepress PRP-R

The multipurpose device PRP-R is intended for receiving the cheese mass, draining the whey, prepressing using compressed air, manual cutting of the cheese mass into desired cheese blocks and pressing the mass in cheese moulds. It is distinguished by its wide usability – suitable for making semi-hard and hard cheeses in smaller batches, for making soft cheeses, draining of whey etc.

One device for cheese mass processing

Cheese mass is produced in cheese kettles, pasteurizers, vats, cisterns. Next phases towards cheese are draining, prepressing, cutting and pressing processes. For all this processes you can use only one device – and that is prepress PRP-R, which is universal device for cheese mass processing.

2.

Adjustable device for your forms of cheese

Device PRP-R is flexible to adjust size of cheese mass block with movable draining grid, flexible to adjust pressing points and pressure for prepressing and pressing cheese mass (segmented draining plates, bridging profiles, movable bridges with cylinders) and flexible to adjust final size of cheese blocks with adjustable knife attached.

3.

Light physical work and ergonomy

Plevnik research and design team created PRP-R device and it’s accessories with thought of ergonomic and light phisical work. Detatchable components are light, moving of movable parts is easy and smooth. All tasks with PRP-R can be done in comfort ergonomic positions of your body – its good for your spine and natural posture. Maximal working height meets the ergonomic standards. 

4.

Automated pressure regulation

Automation saves your time and enshures consistent quality of cheese. Precise pressing durations with same pressures – gives you same high quality results from batch to batch. Set three different pressures with three manual regulators for each one and simply set durations (TIME 1,2,3) of pressing and process will start and finish by controller. Store up to 4 different programs.

Automatically controlled processes (pressure and time) of prepressing and pressing provide reliable, controlled and repeatable processing. Processes are automated and run according to the programs that you set.

5.

Solution for saving time, space and money

Save money and space because you need to buy only one device (PRP-R) for your dairy. PRP-R covers all forming processes of cheese grains from cheese kettle to a cheese mass form. Because you need only one device for cheese mass processing, you save: time with more efficient work during processing because its all there in front of your hands in one device. Smooth surfaces and hygienic design allow quick and effective cleaning. 

6.

Flexible draining of cheese mass

Draining table enabled the pouring of cheese mass directly on the table, where cheese mass is drained. With movable draining grid, the prepress can be adapted to different quantities of cheese mass to.

7.

Possible to cut cheese mass with knives

After draining, prepressing PRP-R enables quick installation of knives – for equal, and fast cutting of cheese mass. Avalable for 2 different dimensions. More cutting solutions after your demand.

8.

Support on wheels for easy movements

Support on wheels enables the easy movement of the prepress and a better use of space.

9.

Extend the functionality of the device

Possibility to extend the functionality of the device: adding movable bridges, additional pressing points, additional pressing plates, bottom draining grid…

Additional Equipment

Manual three-stage pressure regulation

Supports three-stage pressure regulation with preset pressures – manually.

Automatic pressure regulation

Touchscreen controller that allows preprograming of pressure and compression time in three steps. You can design the program independently according to your needs and save the presets.

Additional pressing point

Supports the pressing of more, additional cheese moulds.

Upgrade of pressing point

Replacement of standard pressing point with cylinder that allows higher pressing force.

 

Additional movable bridge

Improves uniform pre-pressing and higher pressing forces (hard cheese production). Its base for larger quantity of cheese moulds to be pressed.

Double pressing plate

On leveler arm replaces the standard single press point and doubles the quantity of pressed moulds (minimal requirement: cylinder 80).

Door on the front side

Ergonomic and easier extracting of cheese blocks from the table. More space for cutting and cleaning. Not avalable for size PRP-R70.

Draining plates at the bottom

Accelerated and even draining of whey due to draining on the bottom of the table.

Detachable knife

For precise, faster and easier semi-automatic cutting of the cheese mass into blocks (5, 4, 2). Cutting is performed by cylinders and manual position switch. Simple and easy attached to cylinders.

Detachable distributor for cheese curd (single or triple)

Enables gentle, loss free, faster and uniform portioning of the cheese mass into the draining table or cheese moulds. CIP cleaning avalable. Not avalable for size PRP-R70.
