CERPTA has a 10 L clotting vat equipped with optic sensors that monitor the coagulation of the milk and the draining of the curd. 

The system allows us to estimate the cutting time and the evolution of curd humidity after it is cut.

We have an optical system of measurement that allows us to perform determinations of transmission and diffusion of light at different angles, pathlengths, wavelengths and temperatures.

We also have an optical system of determination of clotting activity of commercial rennets (IMCUmL-1). The system also allows us to monitor at laboratory level the acidic and mixed coagulation in milk.
