The 10-gallon butter churn is fabricated from American 304 #4 brushed food grade 14 ga and 16 ga stainless steel. Joints are welded and then ground and polished smooth for food contact and sanitizing. The 10 gallon includes a sight glass built into the lid. The sight glass is removable with gasket for cleaning and sanitizing.
Note: The rolling cart in some of the pictures is not included.
Lid slopes 2° to reduce droplets. The lid has a welded outside lip plus an inside welded lip to help reduce splash out. A removable sight glass for cleaning secured with food-grade sanitary tri-clamp seal and glass cap on the end.
Bottom drain utilizes a sanitary food-grade stainless 1-1/2” butterfly valve with screen and elbow for easier washout. The valve connects to a welded flange to hold a tri-clamp removable connection. Valve and elbow parts disassemble for cleaning.
Motor and Motor Shaft
1.5 HP electric motor with a variable speed controller will begin to make butter in approximate 8-10 minutes. Overall 20-30 minutes for a complete batch. Speed range from 0 up for slow processing and wash out.
Mixing Paddles and Shaft
Shaft bearings are machined from food-grade UHMW Plastic used in food-grade equipment.
The mixing paddles are made from 12 ga 304 stainless steel welded to a 304 stainless steel rod capped and welded at each end. The mixing paddle assembly completely removes for standard milkhouse equipment cleaning and sanitizing procedures. The front shaft end UHMW bearing slides out of a front welded port allowing the shaft to lift up and out. The bearing shaft front end port is then sealed with a food-grade sanitary tri-clamp cap on the end.
The motor shaft has a welded flange to hold the bearing housing. The motor shaft utilizes a pressed on UHMW bearing along with a food-grade O-ring to prevent the cream from running into the shaft housing. The motor shaft may be removed for periodic inspection by loosening the Lovejoy set screws and pulling into the tub.
The inside tub shaft to motor flange connection uses two stainless welded flanges with two stainless studs to keep the shaft from free turning. When the mixing paddle shaft is removed the motor shaft flange is separated from the mixing paddle assembly for complete cleaning and sanitizing.
Standard churns are wired for US 220 volts 60 cycles at 10.5 Amps and will operate either on single-phase or 3-phase. A 220 volt 50 Hz motor and controller is available for International use. The churn will come without a plug for either direct wire or to add a plug.
