MKT Robot Station

Our robot station has been designed to make the handling of heavy cheeses easier. It can be used for the accurate transfer of large blocks of cheese into pallets.

MKT Brining Line

MKT brining equipment is designed for both single-level and multi-level brining in small or large racks. The racks can be several levels and they are automatically loaded in a loading station. An automatic gantry crane is used for moving the racks. Cheese blocks are unloaded from the racks in an unloading station. An ultrasonic washing machine can be used for cleaning the racks. MKT can also supply the brining tanks made of stainless steel. Or a concrete basin can be covered with a stainless steel lining.

As an option we offer an industrial UVC (ultraviolet light) system to disinfect your brine water and control the microbiological level. The system can be integrated into your brine water circulation system. You can control your microbiological load and keep your quality stable. The system is easy to install and easy to maintain.

MKT pilot VAT

The pilot vat makes it easy for cheesemakers to experiment with new flavours and recipes whilst avoiding significant additional costs. The vat has a capacity of just 50 litres, but it is semi-automatic and capable of producing cheese of the same quality as our standard vats.
