FREE CHECKLIST: Top 3 barrel hygiene tips
The best wine comes from a meticulously clean winery. All stages of the
production process should be perfectly clean and sanitised, to ensure
no bacteria contaminates wine making equipment or the wine itself.
The answer to a professional, chemical-free clean of your complete winery work and presentation areas, is superheated dry steam vapour.
There are no chemicals- which means there's absolutely no risk of leaving any harmful residue that could find its way into your grape juice or wine, at any stage of production.
Powerful steam vapour- from our range of cleaning
equipment developed especially for winery sanitising- cleans bins,
buckets, carboys, work surfaces, fermenters, barrels, tanks and public
areas. No bacteria can survive the 160+ degrees dry, pressurised steam
vapour- which exits the machine at 6 bar pressure.
This is the only way to clean and sanitise wineries and wine-making equipment effectively.
Nothing else comes close. Bins, barrels, vats and tanks are dry and ready for use within minutes. There's no pool of water left in barrels, so they're ready for wine immediately. Powerful steam vapour is discharged under pressure, and penetrates into the staves and kills all bacteria, and contaminants, including brettanomyces.
Cleaning winery equipment, means that surface dirt and debris are removed. You need more than this- because cleaning does not kill micro-organisms, like yeast, fungus and bretts, to name a few. Wine can easily become contaminated and inherit the bad taste left by unwanted micro-organisms.
No living organism survives a dry steam blast, superheated to 160
degrees Celsius. The sanitising power of steam vapour is the
most effective way to destroy all contaminants and bacteria from wine
barrels, tanks, work surfaces, and bottling lines. There are no
chemicals used with our powerful steam cleaners- so your wine won't
inherit an after-taste of cleaning solution.
Arrange for a demonstration- and see our powerful steam cleaning equipment in action. Watch how quickly our steam generators power through the heaviest cleaning jobs, and streamline the cleaning process for winemakers. A complete system- from steam cleaner to barrel handler- represents the best way of cleaning and sanitising wineries, oak barrels, production areas bottling lines and public spaces.
