The GPiCS cooker stretcher is a low pressure, low shear, direct steam injection continuous cooking and stretching system for Natural Mozzarella production.
It is specifically designed for the sensitive nature of mozzarella and pasta filata curd.
It is a fully enclosed hygienic system, so the product is not exposed to the environment once it has been fed into the GPiCS mozzarella cooking system, which also makes ingredient addition possible.
Its benefits include:
Direct steam injection that efficiently cooks and heats the product
Low-pressure steam injection reduces strain on sensitive cheese varieties
NO bath cook water
Precise temperature control
The ability to add ingredients to the product stream inline
Increased shelf life
Faster CIP (clean-in-place) reduces downtime and increases production
It is also more environmentally friendly, as it doesn’t use lots of bath water that then needs to be reprocessed before it can be reused or disposed of. This reprocessing requires capital investment, and has huge costs. It is usually a separate operation unit within a business! This is not needed with the GPiCS.
