FOR SALE - 350 litre cheese vat

The dimensions are internal, 70cm wide x 120cm long, 56cm deep at the plug end and 47cm deep at the far end with sloping base.  External measurements are 79cm wide, 102cm high from the floor and 160cm long.  Price is £4000+vat, so £4800 total

It was bespoke made and has an automatic thermometer so it will cut out when a certain temperature is reached and we set it from 30C to 63C – I think it will go lower/higher but not sure of its full range. It is a jacketed vat.  It is working perfectly, but there is a little wear on the wire to the thermometer. The lid is split and it comes with a manual stirring paddle.
