Curd Cheese / Sour Milk Curd Cheese / Fresh Cheese

Curd cheese, known as 'curds' in Austria, is a very healthy food: It has a high protein content and low calories.

Especially in a meatless diet, curd cheese is a healthy alternative. Produced by the fermentation of milk, it is often better tolerated by people. Curd cheese is also used in many pastry products, for example, in the popular cheesecake. The consistency of curd cheese requires specialized machinery, which we can offer with our machines.

Practical Machines (Quarkmaker)

For traditional 'curd cheese' making, we offer practical machines (Quarkmaker) and other devices such as filling and dosing pumps, inline filters with scrapers (to achieve a soft curd cheese texture), and mixers to add cream, spices, fruits, etc. The A·S·T·A eismann 'Quarkmaker,' a further development of the Schulenburg method, consists of a semicircular oblong coagulation vat (with or without a heating/cooling jacket). We manufacture our 'Quarkmakers' with pneumatic press operation (capacities from 500 liters to 10,000 liters).

The finely perforated basket is adjusted to the shape of this vat. Once the milk is coagulated, the basket automatically presses gently on top of it. As a consequence, whey flows into the basket and can be pumped out after several hours. Then the basket is lifted back, and the quark is now ready to be pushed out through the large outlet. A·S·T·A Quarkmakers produce quality curd cheese highly appreciated by confectioners and bakers, which no separator equipment can achieve.
