  • You can choose from a variety of options for your agitator paddle at no extra charge! You can also specify agitator speed/rpm's to meet your needs. See the paddle options below:
      • Standard Blade Agitation- The most popular blade. It allows fluid such as milk or cream to get proper agitation. 
      • Full Sweep Agitation- This agitator uses stainless steel blades on the side and bottom to move the product off the interior walls without actually touching them. This is helpful if you are experiencing burn-on.
      • Curd Blade Agitation- The holes in this agitator are ideal for cheesemaking. The paddle is much gentler on curds, making for better cheese!

    As a combo tank, these vats are easily converted for cheesemaking after pasteurization! Get the accessories you need to streamline your operation:

      • Whey Screen: Separate your curds from your whey with this wonderful whey screen attachment!
