Marin French Cheese Case Study

Hurst Boiler | August 18, 2016

Marin French Cheese has operated in the same location for over 150 years, and is the longest continually operating cheese company in America. All their cheese products are handcrafted with passion, created with pride and made of the highest quality milk for a distinctive, authentic taste true to their heritage.

The plant’s boiler facility needed to be replaced as their aging boiler was not capable of meeting capacity requirements and was operating on #2 fuel oil.


Whole-scale re-build of a watertube boiler including combustion blower replacement & controls upgrade for the largest winery in America.

  • Power Flame NP2 ultra-low Nox burner able to meet sub 9 ppm Nox
  • Dual stage economizer
  • Pre-heated Stainless Steel feedwater tank
  • Siemens LMV3 parallel position control
  • Blow down separator
  • Three phase power convertor to breaker panel to supply lighting and control power

All work was successfully completed and delivered on-time. Source testing performed later indicated that the new equipment installation fully satisfied emissions requirements while also providing Marin French Cheese with a more eficient, more powerful system that easily handles all of the company’s production requirements.
