WINUS S.r.l. was founded by operators with proven experience in the wine-making and cooling sector who perceived the need for a small, compact cooler for the control of fermentation and the stabilisation of high-quality wines in the growing international market of small and medium-sized wineries.
The standard-series production of the company's first cooler, the WINUS 5 model began in 1998. Following its development of many other models since then, WINUS now produces a vast range of coolers with cooling power that runs from 1.4 kW to 105 kW.
In 2002, the ITALCERT certification body issued PED certification, in this way ensuring both the standardised design and construction of cooling circuits and facilitating sales even in nations with more restrictive legislation. The company has now diversified its production with the introduction of tube-in-tube heat exchangers, cooled tanks, and other innovative accessories.
WINUS is distinguished by the fact that it offers clients all the components required for the system and the technical drawings required for installation together with its coolers. The company is unique in the sector in terms of the assortment of its machinery thanks to standard-series production that ensures rapid delivery times even at the peak of the productive season.
Over the years, WINUS has succeeded in acquiring an international clientele with leading importers and distributors in the wine machinery sector.
COOLERS FOR OENOLOGY AND FOOD INDUSTRY
The range of refrigerators WINUS and the plants realized by us are designed to execute correctly all the cooling processes of the oenological , agricultural and alimentary sector. The particular constructive solutions and the mass-production of our machines permit to offer the customer a high quality product at a competitive price, from the small to the big plant. Our plants supply an appropriate flow of refrigerated or heated mixture (55% water + 45% propylen glycol for alimentary use) which pass through cooling coils , plates , air spaces or heat exchangers and permits the product to reach the requested temperature. The WINUS company supplies to all the customers dimensioning and tecnical calculations of all the components of the plant.
All WINUS coolers feature an AISI 304 stainless steel structure designed for easy access to all internal parts and the control panel. The cooling circuit is made with pickled copper piping; the condenser is composed of copper piping and aluminium fins, and the type of evaporator varies according to cooler model (coaxial or plate type). The hydraulic circuit (in models C2-W3 and higher) is entirely constructed in inoxidizable materials (steel, brass...) while the circulation pump is sized to work at low temperature with a 45% mixture of propylene glycol. The fans are equipped with a speed control system (in models C2-W5 and higher) that lets the machines run at room temperatures from -5°C to +43°C. The built-in control panel has an IP55 degree of protection.
