Client Success

20% Increase in Permeate Flow

Leads to Higher Product Quality & Yield


Reduced operator interventions to increase visibility of brine solution – saving time while achieving lower turbidity at higher flow rates


Reduced chlorine treatment to control microbiological growth in brine

Increased turnover to reduce brine solution disposal


20% increase in permeate flow tied directly to cheese production

Higher yield of finished product due to the reduction of off-flavor, off-color cheese

The Challenge

When a global mozzarella cheese producer upgraded their brine clarification system, they experienced the following issues:

  1. Brine quality did not routinely meet microbiological requirements
  2. Inconsistent performance did not provide consistent cheese quality

The Solution

In collaboration with the client…

  • Identified opportunity to increase brine tank turnover frequency, thereby addressing quality concerns
  • Delivered higher productivity with required permeate quality, which alleviated microbiological and final cheese quality concerns
  • Improved performance without additional capital or footprint requirements
