Cheese storage dehumidification


A local cheese maker has been serving a high-quality product for over 100 years. Using local, high-quality ingredients from Wisconsin, the company prides itself on offering cheese products that are top-notch. During summer, the storage and shipping dock would sweat due to the dock doors being opened to the damp outside air near the facility.

Boxes of high-quality cheese products would sag and collapse, and the carefully crafted dairy products would be ruined. In the facility, condensation would form on the ceiling and rain down on the floors. This created a dangerous environment for factory workers. With high humidity also came condensation and corrosion on the walls and shelving. This created additional dangers in the work area.

Searching for a solution, the company called on the experts at Quest Climate to solve their condensation and humidity problems.


To find a solution, the Quest team started with an in-depth analysis of the client’s storage facility. We calculated the water load based on the size of the room, the freezer equipment, and geographic location. Additionally, onsite data monitoring of the affected area was conducted.

We found that the humidity level was too high. However, it wasn’t possible to solve the problem in any of the most common ways. For shipping and transport of the products, the doors had to be opened and closed regularly. And, keeping the cold storage area near the docks made shipping convenient and cost-effective.

The client opted for installing a Quest dehumidifier. The highly efficient dehumidification solution was exactly the right fit for their budget and the scale of the facility.
