Micro Vats

Kusel offers a series of “Micro-Vats” for pilot plants, R&D, and farmstead cheese plants.

Vat Functionality

Coming in 50-, 100-, 200-, 400-, and 600-gallon sizes, these vats use steam jet and remote hot water circulation heating to slowly and tenderly heat the product. The 50- and 100-gallon sizes are also available with electric immersion heating with hot water circulation. The 200-, 400-, and 600-gallon sizes are available with the MV agitator, which uses dual motors for stirring and traversing.

Larger sizes are available with mechanical agitation.


  • Developed and pre-designed in standard sizes and configurations for economy
  • Paddles, curd knives, and inside vat strainers are available
  • ½ HP water circulation pump uses 115–230-volt single-phase power
