PUNCH-DOWN FERMENTER – PIP
Fermenter with system for removal of pips
- maceration system: fermenter enables both maceration techniques: the cap submerging system and the system of pumping must over the cap;
- the in-built system for the automatic removal of pips: during the fermentation of grape pomace pips tend to fall to the bottom of the fermenter. By means of a scraper pips are collected in a container and by activating the pneumatic valve then removed from the tank. By removing pips from lees during maceration and fermentation, the extraction of herb and unripe (green) tannins into wine is reduced;
- the control unit enables setting submerging cycles, switching on/off of the must pump, regulation of temperature, switching on/off of the scraper and pips discharge valve;
- the entire cap-submerging construction can be removed and the fermenter used as an ordinary tank for must fermentation or as a wine storage tank under atmospheric pressure.
Available in different sizes (up 1000 to 3000 gal).
