CoolBot for Dairy and Cheese
You can build an affordable walk-in cooler for dairy powered by a CoolBot and a standard air conditioning unit. CoolBots are used in walk-in coolers for dairies, creameries and cheese caves around the world: we proudly have customers making cheese in CoolBot-driven coolers from New Hampshire to Nepal. Whether you are crafting a savory smoked gouda or a crumbly blue cheese, a CoolBot-driven cooling system can keep your cheese cave cool for an affordable price. Our customers save money in upfront costs, monthly electricity bills and costly repair technician visits by using a CoolBot compared to a traditional compressor system.

Cheese Cave Tips
Air Circulation: The amount and rate of fresh air introduced to the cooler affects the oxygen and ammonia in the air as well as the aging process. Our customers have found that the natural rate of opening and closing the door strikes the right balance, but additional ventilation can be added if necessary. Avoid placing cheese directly in the line of air flow from the A/C, as too much direct air can dry the cheese out.

“…Well, finally, I am really happy to thank you once again about the CoolBot, really a great device! To built [sic] and insulate the coldroom was not an easy task… nothing is easy in Nepal!
